Thanksgiving with Wyomians in Mexico

Unique. That's how we would describe Thanksgiving 09, the most unique holiday celebration we've experienced as a family. We had the awesome privilege of spending it with a mission team from Wyoming. Part of their mission for the week was to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal for the Home. The women from the group planned and cooked the best meal anyone could ask for and the fellowship was even better. It was such a joy to see the children lining up for heaping piles of food and smiling all the way to their seats.

Not only was it a wonderful Thanksgiving, but working with the Wyoming group all week was truly a blessing. We will never forget these faithful servants of Christ and we thank Him the opportunity to serve alongside them. We pray God's blessings for them as they continue to serve Him and seek His guidance.
The men carve turkeys and the women prepare to serve the food.

Tio Alfredo assisted group members Nancy, Jenna, and Alex with some songs.

Sisters, Julie and Kassandra and their "perrita" Kere!

So precious... I miss those little faces. It looks like you all had a blessed holiday. I'm a definite believer that spending Thanksgiving outside of the U.S. makes us more thankful for the blessings that we have been given. God is cool that way. Love and miss you all!
