The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts. No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.–H.U. Westermayer
Imagine what the first Pilgrim settlers might think if they could be transported to our current time in history, especially this season as Americans sprint here and there spending millions of dollars on Christmas shopping. Would they find us more thankful and content in our enormous wealth than they were in their stark poverty?
Recently Verlin returned home safely after a great week of CHE training in the village. More about that later. Debbie enjoyed Thanksgiving with family in Nashville.
Prayer and Praise
- We are unusually blessed by our Christian heritage, historically and personally. It is a joy to have children walking with the Lord, wonderful family and friends, and outstanding co-workers and ministry partners. Above all, we are honored to serve Jesus and multiply workers for Him in a nation where many people have never heard the Good News!
- “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits…” Ps. 103:2
