We are thankful to the Lord that He keeps opening doors for us at the Ust-Kulom
boarding school. This time we had a request from the school staff to help them get
clothes and sneakers to perform in front of other schools. The staff are doing everything
they can to help the kids develop spiritually and physically, to keep them off the
streets. Recently some of the boys from the school showed interest in dancing. In
order to perform they wanted to get the same clothes for every boy on the dance team.
We went ahead and did just that with God’s help and your generous support. You should
have seen the happy smiles on the boys’ faces. And, yes, we had yet another chance
to witness to them about the Lord’s love. The latest I heard from them is that they
have been using the dance gear to practice and perform. As you know, most of those
kids come from problem families, and this helps them to stay away from addictions
and dangerous behavior patterns.The owner of the store where we bought the clothes
and sneakers was touched by the idea of helping those kids and decided to donate
a few items to the kids from herself.
