Did I forget anyone? If I did, I apologize and tell you I suffer from short-term memory (among other things!)
Also, Thanks to the people of our community who gave so generously and to our church who filled many boxes. We delivered 459 boxes today! May each child who receives a box be blessed!
Last night was our annual Thanksgiving dinner at church.
Everyone brought their best recipes and Gaye made a beautiful chocolate cake to add to the dessert table!
We even had some pilgrims ladies show up!
All of the people above are new members in our church in recent times. We welcome them all!
Love to see the young families.........
And our lovely older members.....and all those in between!!
After our Thanksgiving dinner we heard testimonies from all our team who went this past week to Nicaragua. Jaclyn, above with her family, gave such a special recap of what the week meant to her.
It was her first plane ride and first mission trip. She was such a blessing to her team and I think she will be ready to go again in the years to come!
Thinking of the coming holiday, I just want to say that I am so very thankful to the Lord for all He has done this year in my life. He continues to show me daily that He is with me no matter what comes my way. Why I am blessed so much I will never understand but I will praise the One who holds my hand.
"One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple."
Praying you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving! Count your blessings....you may be surprised how long your list is!
