THANKSGIVING: We had a delightful thanksgiving. It was just the three of us, but we had chicken breasts from South Africa, rice, peppers, tomatoes, home-made rolls, a green bean casserole with home-fried onions on top, and chocolate cup cakes for dessert. The staff thought the food looked a little strange, but they loved the home-made rolls. Karen taught Juliana and Luci how to make the dough so they could make their own at home. We talked to family in the U.S. on the phone, so all that was missing was watching football. When we talked about the things that made us truly thankful, it was the people who support us with their prayers, service, and gifts that were at the top of the list. You folks are wonderful. God bless you.
