While most of our American friends are enjoying a day off, good food, and time with friends and family…
… we’ll be sitting in French classes and waiting for the snow that’s predicted to come this weekend! We’ll have our (non-traditional) family Thanksgiving on Saturday.
But for now, we just wanted to share four things we’re thankful for:
Salvation and the privilege it is to serve God. Christ gave all for us on the cross. He paid the full penalty for our sins to be forgiven. It is a privilege and an honor to have the opportunity to share the Gospel Truth with the Québécois this year.
Our health and safety. In the last year, and a half, we’ve probably driven close to 20,000 miles. And besides a couple flat tires and a rock in the windshield, nothing happened. And while we spent a month this spring battling a stomach bug, then two weeks this fall marching through Covid, we’re so thankful for the health and wellness of our family.
Family and friends-like-family. We’re thankful for our marriage, our kids, our parents and siblings, and extended family. And we’re thankful that everywhere we have lived since leaving Alaska, God has given us friends who become like family: the Mitchells, the Kellys, the Wiersmas, the DeVries, the Burgesses, Margot… We’re thankful.
For our partners. When we started partnership development and support raising in 2018, we had no idea who God would bring to our team. And boy, did He do abundantly more than all we could ask or imagine. Our partners – whether prayer, financial, or encouragement – are such a blessing to us. Thank you for walking this journey with us.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends.
