Dec. 20 in Khazakhstan

"Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm 64?"

We've spent Sister McEvoy's birthday in Almaty where we've had a gentle snow fall this evening. In this humid climate, each tree branch is covered in white as we walked to the internet cafe. These Central Asian people are kind and helpful and quick to smile as we make our way about their busy, clean city.

We're supposed to fly out at 3:00AM tomorrow with 15 of our fellow missionaries, headed to Yekaterinburg via Moscow.

PS: Back home in Yekat, the office employees celebrated. The beautiful birthday gifts are "haklama," a traditional Russian art. More on that later.
