Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1
While the rest of El Salvador continued business as usual, we spent the day celebrating a traditional American Thanksgiving with our employees, neighbors and missionary friends. The kitchen was alive with joy, love and laughter as we ate mounds of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, corn, caramelized carrots, buttered rolls, homemade cinnamon rolls and peanut butter fudge.
In order to educate the kids about the history behind and significance of this holiday, they were asked to complete an educational project to share with our guests. The boys re-enacted the pilgrims’ journey to the New World, their friendship with the Native Americans and the first Thanksgiving. The older girls each created a Power Point depicting what they are thankful for. Both the drama and presentations were wonderful and helped make our celebration more meaningful.
As we look back upon this year, we are humbled and grateful for God’s wonderous love and blessings on our Home and children. We also send a special thank you to our family, friends and supporters – we couldn’t do it without you. God Bless!
