Happy Thanksgiving!

We have so much to be thankful for this year - as we do every year!

Most importantly, we are thankful that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins because, no matter how "good" we are, there is no way to make our sins right in the eyes of a perfect, sinless God. We are grateful for God's love and mercy; His sovereignty in our lives and His calling for us.

We are also thankful for our family! God has given us 2 sweet angels and they are a joy as well as a reminder that we are to portray Christ at ALL times. We are grateful for the love and support given by our grandparents, parents and siblings and we are blessed to know that all of them follow Jesus! And we are grateful for the technology that allows us to talk with and see them on a regular basis. In the not too distant past, those living overseas could only afford 5 minute phone calls once or twice a year and relied mainly on letters which took at least a month to make the journey. What an incredible age we live in!

We are grateful for those who partner with us in prayer - for our family, for the Czechs, for our ministry here and for the openness of those we meet. We could not be here without your support and intercession with the Father! We are grateful for those who sacrificially give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, which provides the bulk of our financial support and allows to live here without having to raise support or have full-time jobs other than reaching those who are lost.

We thank the Lord for the people we have met here in Prague and the relationships that have begun with neighbors, teachers, students, fellow believers, and the one young man from the metro! We are grateful for our team here and their support.

Also, we are very grateful for the care packages we have received. It is always a blessing to find that little slip of paper in our mailbox stating that we have a package at the post office! And being able to receive some items that we just can't find here but can use and enjoy is wonderful!!!

I'm sure there are many more things for which we are thankful, so if I've left something out...please know that we are thankful for that too! Lastly, we are thankful to have found everything we need to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and the neighbors who are coming to enjoy it with us!

We love you all and wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
