Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to write and wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.  We count it a great blessing to have friends and family like you.

We did celebrate Thanksgiving with a meal, but I suppose the rest of the day wasn’t a usual Thanksgiving day.

I taught for a few hours this morning at the Bible College.

Then we had our lunch.  Rebecca cooked chicken instead of turkey.  Turkey is more than double the price. So here we eat chicken and pretend that it gobbles.  We had 6 Africans with us.  What  a blessing to be able to share our Thanksgiving with them.  We are away from our family, but God has allowed us to create a new family here.  We all shared what we were thankful for.  All of them were thankful that they were saved and that God has allowed us to work together.

We had a kids club about 5 miles from the house.  We had about 45 kids and to my surprise, four mothers came also.  We were wanting to start a church there in the near future, but we might have to start even sooner than we had thought.

Tonight, we continued our missions conference.  Last night was great.  Tonight was also wonderful.  Last year, our church gave $650 to missions.  That might not sound like a lot to you but for people that make about $1 a day, that is amazing.  God is really using the messages and I believe that the best is yet to come.
