Visit from Ptr. Jim & Karen + Thanksgiving 2011

We were blessed to have Ptr. Jim and Karen join us here in the Philippines for about 12 days. Ptr. Jim had a busy speaking schedule, I think he spoke more than 12 different times. His schedule included a Pastor's conference in Zambales, a couple of churches in Pampanga, a Bible College, a church in Metro Manila, and of course our church. We are thankful for their visit and the time that we were able to spend with them. They were a great blessing to us and our church. We thank the Lord for the safety He provided while they were here and for the spiritual refreshment and fellowship that we had.

We had a full house for Thanksgiving this year. Along with Ptr. Jim and Karen, we were joined by Rachel and Reynan, Ptr. Edwin and his family, and Ptr. Resty and his family. It was an extra tasty Thanksgiving meal since Ptr. Jim and Karen bought a turkey for us from the U.S. and Dulce brought it with her in her suitcase. She also brought us some cranberries, stuffing mix, cornbread, canned pumpkin pie mix and pecans. The turkey was grilled to perfection on our Weber Grill (the first time we've ever done it that way - thank God for YouTube), Rina baked some delicious pies and we had a complete American style Thanksgiving meal.
