Thanksgiving fun!

We met with our international English discussion group the week before Thanksgiving to share about the true meaning of Thanksgiving [Pilgrims feasted to celebrate all God had provided for them after their first year in the new world. They came here for religious freedom and that was the basis on which our country was founded! Later, during the Civil War, President Lincoln made Thanksgiving a national holiday to remind people of how our country was founded and the need to give thanks to God]  We also made a few tasty Thanksgiving treats together.....

My creations!

Displaying our handiwork! Maggie got to eat a few more sweets that night
than usual, but she hung in there well! Our int'l friends are from L-R Armenia,
Pakistan, Mongolia, Brazil, and Ivory Coast. Kelsey, who's helping with
Bridges is in the back by Maggie and me.

Happy Thanksgiving!

We have a lot of things to share about and be thankful for this Thanksgiving, but we want you to know that we are especially thankful for YOU! Without your love, encouragement, prayers, and financial partnership with us, the ministry we do would not be possible.  Thank you for entrusting your time and money to God and believing that He will work through us!

We are grateful for you!!!

Our affectionate name for November.  This month, applications open online for students to start signing up for summer projects for next summer. We've also been doing a lot of world vision sharing, which we LOVE.  This Tuesday, Matt and I spoke at our weekly Cru meeting and challenged students to think a bit on the spiritual state of the world and why its God's heart that ALL people should hear the good news of the gospel. We shared from Romans 10 and got to throw in a bit of our personal experiences overseas as well.  It was fun for us to have that opportunity.

Along those lines, Sunday, November 11 is International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. Please join us in praying for Christians in these places.  Check out this website for more info on how to pray:

More updates coming soon....including some pictures of Maggie dressed as a cow.... ;)
