In November we celebrated our 11th year anniversary. Missionary friends of ours kept all three of our boys so we could go away for a couple days. One day was spent malling. We've almost forgotten how fun window shopping is without three little boys tagging along! Another day was spent touring the old capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya. We went to see the Bangpa-in Palace. It's so nice, and quiet, and beautiful there! We were also able to see the old ruins in the same city. We both agree that that was the most fun time we've ever had together. We praise the Lord for each other and the team we are for the ministry here.
We celebrated Thanksgiving day in Bangkok with fellow missionaries at the home of Ricky and Tammy Salmon. As any other thanksgiving feast, food was wonderful and oh... desserts were even better! Both the adults and the children enjoyed the fellowship - something we get to do only once or twice a year with this group of people. Before the meal, each one was given the opportunity to share what he/she was thankful to the Lord for in the past year. We all had so much to be thankful for. God is good and faithful!
