A tired but happy crew of young ladies! They worked hard all week getting the place organized and ready for the people. They will spend the next couple of weeks getting the clothing and other items distributed to the poor and needy.
It has been so very cold this week and we ended up being out in it quite a bit. But it just makes you appreciate the nice warm apartment we have!
We also visited a school for the handicapped, helped out at the English Club and met a wonderful lady who spent some time in Salt Lake. We'll tell you about her next week.
We did find out yesterday that Kazakhstan is now in the Russia Moscow West Mission instead of the Russia Moscow Mission and that President Collins is our new mission president. We will probably go to Almaty the middle of February to meet him.
We are so grateful for the opportunity we have to serve here in Kazakhstan! We are so blessed to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives; to know who we are, why we are here and where we are going gives us the peace that Christ talks about. We are grateful to our family and friends and for their love and support. You are all wonderful and we feel your prayers for us each and every day! May the Lord bless you in all that you do!!
