DAYSPRING PLAYGROUND COMING TOGETHER
We picked up the metal for the playground at Dayspring today. The team loaded a batch of "metal" into Isar's van and delivered it to Teen Challenge for the first part of the work. Soon we will be bringing this to Dayspring for assembly - a new slide, swing set, and more. Thanks to you our sponsor!
Watch for the smiles of the children! Construction day - MONDAY COMING..
Brian hard at work loading metal - Andy said it would get his pants dirty. Hmmmm. So we named the donkey after him!
That's right - a new donkey. You see two donkeys here. Well the team stopped along side of the road and John jumped out of the van. Seems some time ago he promised a donkey to Teen Challenge. Well, here was one farmer and TWO donkeys. After some negotiation a deal was made - donkey purchased. So they had to have tea at the donkey cart and the donkey was ours - well - Teen Challenges. And we named the donkey - ANDY. THAT'S RIGHT!
ANDY - THE DONKEY
Jenny decided the donkey was quite harmless and found him to be just a little baby. Much different that African donkeys she says.
Here - Andy is giving the men at Teen Challenge some wonderful little gifts - great speeches from
C. Stanley - great gift - the men were thrilled.
The day was really full.
TRAINING: Ruby conducted a full day of training at SOS Children's Villages on the topic of Trauma. there were about 35 participants in the training.
After training, and the day of Touching Bases, the team gathered in Bishkek to have a wonderful dinner together. And once again, partnership became the key - LAMb International. Light of Asia, Crossroads, Teen Challenge, and Lepta Plus coming together to share stories, plans, fellowship, and dinner. PARTNERSHIP IN ACTION.
