WHERE LANGUAGE IS NO BARRIER - KYRGYZSTAN

"YOU JUST NEED TO HAVE BEEN THERE
TO 
UNDERSTAND"

How often we have heard those words.  Yet again and again, this is our thought as we see the hand of God working across the globe in the work of ministry.  We witness again and again the depth of His care and attention to those we serve.  It often shows up in most simple of things.

Here in Kyrgyzstan we are blessed to have so many youth who have been reunited with their families - youth who have graduated from University and others who are holding full time jobs, youth on the deans list at university, and more.  We have been here for 12 years and have story after story that touches deep into our hearts.  Youth who have married and now have children of their own.  And although simple in many ways - so complex in the larger understanding of how these youth have struggled to lift above their trauma and challenges.  To them we send the message - WE ARE PROUD OF YOU!  Each little day - leads to big lifetime impact.

EVERY YOUTH DESERVES A CHANCE AND A FAMILY!!!!  

Perhaps these following photos will give you a hint of the blessings of the last few days here in Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO - THOSE MOMENTS THAT REMIND US

IT REALLY IS ABOUT ONE

"STOPPING FOR THE ONE IN FRONT OF YOU"

Janybeck - stopped for the seniors!

Talented, smart, kind and ready to make a difference!
 Dean's List Student at the International University of Central Asia

Pillow Project - Champion

When a young person joins Jeremiah 29:11, our hope and dream for them is to come to know their Heavenly Father and reach their God given potential.  Over the years we have seen this come to be again and again. Pouring into Janybeck has been a joy and pleasure for many years in Jeremiah 29:11.

Young girls and young boys come to live and grow in Jeremiah and Dayspring - being given a chance to learn what a family is and to be encouraged and supported to dream.

Janybeck is an example of determination and resiliency - no matter the tough circumstances.  Over the years he has been with us - he has grown and matured and we want to celebrate him right now.  

THIS IS THE REASON WE DO WHAT WE DO!
TAKE A LOOK
HE DID THIS - THIS IS HIS IDEA - THIS IS HIS SUCCESS

"Please read Janybeck's project and see the heart of this wonderful young man! We are so proud of him!"

KYRGYZSTAN FIRE - RAISED $1,700 USD - STILL NEED HELP

ROOF SECURED AND COVERED
THANKS TO THE HELP 
OF OUR KYRGYZSTAN CHURCH

 

CAN YOU HELP IN THIS REPAIR?  


Thank you so much.  We have sent over the $1700 to get started on the repairs.  We have more to do and will be best if we replace the roof.  We have damage inside the house as well from water and smoke.  We need to do those repairs and paint inside - need to replace the roof and many rafters.  The furnace is compromised and the chimney needs replaced.

We thank you in advance for praying for our youth and for your donation to help bring order back to the home with our Jeremiah Youth.

WHEN HELP IS NEEDED - YOU MUST ASK

KYRGYZSTAN...
JEREMIAH HOUSE HAD A FIRE
All are safe - damage is medium
Resources needed for damage

The fire started in the chimney and we now have heard the structure of the chimney was faulty.  A neighbor spotted the flames and alerted the family - everyone was able to get out safely and the fire department came and put the fire out.  

The youth were scared - still a bit shaken by the fire and the concerns that have surfaced.  You can imagine, when you are not secure - have been moved around, experienced previous life trauma, what this might do to the emotional state of a youth...and the questions they ask, " Are we going to be moved?" "Will we be able to stay together?"  (Yes they are all together and will NOT be moved.)

They are SAFE and SECURE, however to feel that way is a totally different issue.  Please pray for our youth and family who were living at Jeremiah House.   

The church came together - Pastor Sasha and his team to place plastic around to cover the holes - to keep the snow and rain out.  HOWEVER we must do the repairs right away ....  can you help in this?

Damage to the following:
  • new roof needed
  • new rafters
  • new ceiling in some of the rooms
  • water damage repairs
  • smoke damage - ruining some things
  • furnace checked and replaced where indicated
  • new chimney
We are trying to raise just over $5,000.  We have some of the costs in, but now all of them.  We want to do this right - and time is of importance.

If you are able to help - please go to the donate buttons here in the blog  - or send donations to the address below.  

THANK YOU,
THE LAMb Team
