Happy Thanksgiving!

Yes, another Thanksgiving has come and almost gone!  Many people have expressed their gratitude today for family, friends, health, God's love and mercy and the list goes on.  I also, am very thankful for all of those things and many more!

I am looking forward to spending some time in North Carolina in a few weeks.  It will be good to visit with my family, friends and a couple of church families.  While I look foward to that time, I do not want to overlook what I have been blessed with here in Guatemala.

I am fortunate to live in a safe community.  I rent a small house that that belongs to a wonderful couple.  Tomasita and Jaime are always looking out for me. When I have been sick, Tomasita has checked on me.  When my parents were sick and I needed to return to the states, they have come and prayed with me. Jaime quickly fixes anything in the house that needs repair and they watch out for my things when I am not here. I appreciate them very much!

I live very close to Kemmel and Lisa and this is another daily blessing that I have.  If I ever need anything, they are here for me. I remember the first time that I met them in 2005.  I never dreamed that I would one day live down the street from them and have the opportunity to serve in the way that we do.  This is another wonderful blessing that I have every day.  Thank you, Lisa and Kemmel!

While I am looking forward to December and traveling to my parents, I do not want to forget what I have TODAY!  Gracias a Dios!
