Thanksgiving!



On a completely different note, a missionary family that our church supports had their house destroyed by a flood earlier this year.  To help them rebuild, our church had a yard sale on Saturday.  Many, many people volunteered their time, donated items, and spent countless hours at church pricing items.  It was all worth it when we realized we'd made a little over $3,000!  We had a very busy day, and people were commenting on "how well-organized" our sale was... that was so nice to hear because David and I were worried that we weren't organized enough.  We still had a TON of items left at the end of the day, but we'll be able to send all that money to the family this week! It sure is a blessing that missionary families are willing to leave the comforts of home to spread the Gospel, and it's a privilege to be able to help them in any way we can!

Also, thanks to those of you who've been praying for Emma!  She's home now, and undergoing physical therapy!  We're praying that she'll make a full recovery.  I know her parents and grandparents are very grateful for your prayers!
