I recently and publicly bemoaned the lack of rooibos tea in Bishkek. Since then, friends have bought me rooibos from the States and the UK respectively, and I've been sent some from Australia. At least a six-month-worth of tea sits on my desk. This is comforting in several ways: firstly, I will not lack for delicious hot caffeine-free beverages any time soon; and secondly, I am ridiculously blessed by friends and family, who rise to meet me when I lack something, even the smallest of somethings. God is good to me.
