What a wonderful time of year when we can gather together and express all of the reasons that we are thankful to our Lord for His provisions! He has not only provided for our physical needs and blessed us with wonderful families and friends, but He has supplied for all of our spiritual needs with the finished work of Christ on the cross to forgive our sins! The thing that we are most thankful for!!
Here in Costa Rica, they do not have the Thanksgiving holiday, but we are celebrating none the less. We are going to have a few tico friends over and I am going to attempt to cook an entire feast – including cooking turkey for the first time!! We not only want to share with them this United States tradition of a big day of food and perhaps play some football americano, but also share with them how God has blessed us and how we owe Him everything for all that He has given us.
God has truly blessed us with another year in Costa Rica of service for Him. At this point, Jacob leads 11 Bible studies each week!!! That is amazing and a huge answer to prayer! The kids enjoy going with him to some of these and they enjoy playing soccer each week with the kids in Cipreses!! The kids and I are enjoying homeschooling and I am thrilled with my health progress!! In the last couple of weeks, I have been able to chase the kids around like I used to and play ball with them! I am feeling better than I have in over a year!! God is so good!
We have been so blessed by great friends and family that love us from a distance and continue to pray and support us! Thank you so much!! God is using you mightily here in Costa Rica, even though you are in the US. We are praying for you as you pray for us!!
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
