Dear Friends and Family,
It is so hard to be so far away from all of you on this holiday, especially in a country that does not celebrate Thanksgiving. Everything goes on as usual on that Thursday!
We are so blest to have our daughter, Melissa here with us for Thanksgiving. Our friends, Madge and Steve, gave up their Thanksgiving with their family to help make ours easier, and we are so grateful.
We have so much to thank God for during this season, but, most of all, we want to say thank you to all of you who have prayed for us, supported us and kept us going during these first few months of our adventure. We are here because of that support, and we pray that God will bless you on your journeys and that our paths will remain intersected!
Today, we want to share the beauty of this country with you through a few photos. For this beauty and the peace and the repose it brings, we give much thanks to God!
