Shelek - 13 regions reached!

We were contacted by a representative from an orphanage in the region of Shelek, Kazakhstan, about 100 miles north of Almaty. She informed us of the overwhelming need facing the 47 mostly special needs children at this orphanage. Hardly any adoptions are ever done from this orphanage and because it is so small, it is often overlooked by the government. It truly has no support. In addition to lacking basic necessities for the children, they also have no toys or games. We were able to purchase a new refrigerator, washing machine, snow suits, clothes, diapers and toys/games. We look forward to continuing our support of this orphanage in the future.

Also this month we were able to purchase snow suits and clothes for the orphanage in Taldy Korgan! It is very exciting to see how the Lord is using us to touch these lives!
