As we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, our hearts are filled with gratitude and joy for all we have in HIM!
We were reminded again so vividly of the absolute privilege that has been ours after recently returning for almost a month in Ethiopia and South Africa.  We had precious reunions with dear friends we had worked alongside of during our years of ministry in Ethiopia. Thosed blessed and challenging years formed deep bonds.  As we recounted stories, the belly laughs and tears began.  Days forever etched in our memories !
In South Africa, we had a wonderful time including Thanksgiving Day with our son, Drew, and his family. The day began with Great White Shark cage diving. Oh, my goodness! You may have heard Grace and Janna’s screams. Amazing to see God’s creatures up close and personal! WOW!!!!
