Several people have been concerned about us with the current terrorist seige in Mumbai. We want you all to know that we are safe! However, there are many children in our school who are from Mumbai, and we have several friends living in Mumbai. Please pray for all of them!
We hope that all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are not having a big get-together this year because of crazy schedules (things don't slow down around here for our favorite holiday!). But Ryan is really craving pumpkin pie, so I think he will go down to the market today and get one (a pumpkin, that is). Nothing around here is ever easy. We did buy ourselves a food grinder/juicer for Christmas, so that will come in handy. It will also be good for grinding up the cinnamon bark that Ryan ordered the other day (note to self: order ground cinnamon, not just cinnamon).
Thank you especially to those of you who have emailed, posted on our blog, and called us recently (Samuel & Jessie!). We love you, and miss all of you!
I'll close with a prayer from Brenna from last night... "Dear God, thank you for calling my family to India. Even though I didn't want to come, and sometimes I don't like it here, I know it was the right thing to do."
And one from Addie, "Dear Jesus, thank you Nanny and Papa come mine house again. Thank you for Jesus. Amem."
