The celebration was held in a big fun center called the "Duman". We are seated in a Texas style roadhouse. Notice all the levis sewn together!! They served us traditional Kazakh food which we enjoyed very much. Once again, we passed on the tea!Mira and Anne sitting at the table with a traditional Kazakh doll.
Here we are in Kazakhstan's area in front of the statue of The Golden Warrior which represents the people of Kazakhstan.
Here we are in the China area with the statue of Khotey.Roy was actually hoping for Chinese take-out but instead got an American dish!!
While we were walking around, we noticed a this little boy in one of the Church's wheelchairs, so we took his picture.
At the end of the celebration they gave us a Kazakh hat and scarf. Do we look like we fit in yet??!!
We have written two projects for local NGO and have just received approval on them. It will be sometime before they are completed so we can put them on the blog. But next week we will finish telling you about the Duman Center and what a wonderful place it is!
Thanks to all of you who have been fasting and praying for Taryn. We hope she can get well enough soon so that she can have her surgery. We feel all of your love and support for our family.
