Thanksgiving 2016

Waking up on Thanksgiving morning, I immediately was wishing we were with family. Holidays are definitely the hardest time to be overseas, BUT instead of focusing on all the things we don't have, we chose to focus on the many things that God has blessed us with.

Since the rest of our mission family left earlier this year, we decided to host Thanksgiving at our house. We invited one other American couple and three other families from around the world. We even found some turkeys and ham after much begging and pleading to the grocery stores to please get some in before Thanksgiving. As we sat around the table we gave thanks for all the many things we have been blessed with.
