Thank you for joining with us in the call to impact the orphans of Kenya

     There are so many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving that there isn't enough room to list them all.  God has been good to us and we are so thankful to Him for the many blessings and the "bends in the road" that we've encountered over the last year.

     This is our first Thanksgiving in Kenya.  We miss our families and friends back in the states, but are so very thankful for the family we have here in the Baby Centre employees and the other missionaries.  Kenya doesn't celebrate a Thanksgiving Day so on Wednesday we threw a Thanksgiving lunch for all the Baby Centre employees and explained to them what Thanksgiving Day is all about in America.  We had a really good time serving and talking with the employees.  Here are some photos.

     Then today, Thanksgiving Day, the missionaries celebrated together.  We had our meal at Staci & Wycliff's home.  We had a wonderful turkey (after we were able to get it thawed out!), mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, salad, butternut squash casserole, green beans, rolls, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake, mango pie, chocolate pie, coffee and pumpkin spice latte!!  It was a wonderful meal.  Then we had good fellowship with each other and some time to just relax.  We were very thankful for today and time with our missionary family.  We were all missing our families back in the US so it was good for all of us to be together today and laugh and have a good time.  Here are a few photos.

     Thank you Lord for your goodness, your faithfulness, your love.  
We are thankful for all of you, we pray that you too will have a wonderful day of contemplating how the Lord has blessed you. We thank God for all of the babies. We thank God for people like Robyn Moore and Dr. Chuck Bemm who volunteer their time to make sure the babies are healthy.
   Bwana asifiwe, Bwana asifiwe tena!
   Praise the Lord, praise the Lord again!
