As we celebrated Thanksgiving this year I found myself reviewing all that has happened in my life and there is just so much to be thankful for!  Who would have thought that by 2012 I would be in the Philippines,  have a lovely wife, a precious little girl, and baby number two on the way!  Our first seven months on the field have been so greatly blessed.   We have benefited from the wisdom and friendship of the Lewis family, who have helped us sidestep many obstacles and taught us how to face others.  We were also able to find a house quickly, enabling us to settle into our new home.  In the short time we have been here we have even seen people trust Christ as their only way to heaven.  I know a lot of work and planning has been done to get us here in Cebu but I also realize that without the Lord our plans are futile.  In this Thanksgiving season I have to direct my praise to the One Who has enabled me to serve Him.  My very breath, my life is in His hands. He has given me health and strength, something which a person often takes for granted.  I’m so thankful for His love and protection!  Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and took time to remember what the Lord has done for you!
