Kyrgyzstan Highlights

Since Jamin doesn't blog, and I didn't go to Kyrgyzstan, this post will not do the trip justice. :) I'll just tell a few of the things I do know, and you can at least get an idea of what the trip was like.

Here, Jamin is preaching with an interpreter. It was a new and strange experience for him. They have church in their house, because it is illegal for them to do otherwise. I think they have to have 200 members to start a "church", so that could take a while because you really can't go soul winning either.

They took the kids from the orphanage fishing one day. They took turns going out on this little raft.

This is in the back of the orphanage. This is their cow they use for milk. Notice how grown up it is. Hardly anyone mows or uses a weedeater there.

Most of their food and other necessities have to purchased at a bazaar. There are lots of different ones all over the city. Beware, some of these pictures are totally gross!

I can't remember this little girl's name, but I think she is so adorable. She is one of the orphans there.

These are part of the Himalayas. Aren't they gorgeous!?

I am sorely lacking for details. :) It was a wonderful trip and I know the Lord did a lasting work in their hearts!

I've been waiting for some pictures. It brought tears to my eyes to think of how we have it made here in America. God is so good and gracious to us and we just take it for granted. Those kids are precious. I love you.
