Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

As Lori is prepping the Pumpkin Pies, Green Bean Casserole and Jell-O Salad for our Thanksgiving meal here in Thailand, we remember all of you - our friends, family, support team, and church partners - with much Thanksgiving and Joy. We have much to be Thankful for this year - it has been a healthy year for us physically, a milestone year for us linguistically, a growing year for us in ministry and an unspeakably wonderful year for us as we have watched Abigail discover the world around her.

We are coming out of a busy season of village travel - having celebrated the rice harvest in four villages, attended a funeral and generally traveled to Akha villages throughout the region - building upon old relationships and forming new ones.

We are currently preparing for the next year, as I am sure many of you are, and trying to get our business affairs in order as we have a short break around Thanksgiving. There is so much we still want to update you all on - medical and dental clinics, ministry direction and future plans and general life happenings - but for now we want to wish you all a happy and healthy Thanksgiving filled with friends and family.

Thanks for following our adventures here in Thailand!
