Part 11/Oh Happy Day!
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! (It’s a few days early, but we can still celebrate, right?) :) We have so much to be thankful for, do we not? Family, friends, love, laughter, material blessings, fellowship, and most of all Jesus and the life we have in Him!
One thing I am SO thankful for is the opportunity Miah and I had this past Wednesday to meet Rachael, my sponsor child through Compassion International, and some of the Compassion staff here in Accra. It was an incredible experience! I’m so thankful that I was able to meet Rachael and some of her family, after corresponding for the past year and a half. We were also very blessed by the integrity, joy, and Christ-centeredness of the Compassion staff, and by seeing the evidence of God’s working through the ministry of Compassion. Though our visit was fairly short, it was a very sweet time, and a day we will always remember. I’m excited to continue corresponding with Rachael, and to see what God does in and through her in the coming years. Thank you so much for praying for our visit, and for supporting us and making this visit possible!

Miah and I have also been enjoying our time at Beacon House, and we’re looking forward to our last few weeks with the kids. This past weekend, we went to church with the kids and some of the mamas from Beacon House, which was a fun experience. We were the only white people there, except one other lady. The worship was exuberant, and let’s just say I can’t dance like an African (or really at all, for that matter). It was fun though, and we were blessed by the teaching, which was in English and the local dialect. We don’t have too much planned for the coming week, but I’m sure there will be lots to laugh about and give thanks for along the way.

I hope and pray you all have a blessed week, full of the joy of His presence and lots of good fellowship, food, and pumpkin pie!
In His love,
