Marques left for Kazakhstan on July 5. :( He will be there until August 29 working at a clinic and helping out wiht Young Life in Almaty. So proud of him! He's a boy so, he packs light taking only two backpacks and his guitar--for almost 8 weeks! Crazy!

It's a pretty interesting little country. :)
