Thanksgiving

Yesterday we celebrated the Paraguayan version of Thanksgiving in our home. We used chicken and ribs as our main dish. Turkeys are hard to come by.
We have a lot to be thankful for. God has been good in bringing new experiences into our lives. Nancy is God’s gift to me. So are her son Mark (15) and daughter Nicole (12).
We believe that God brought us together after a season of grieving and hopelessness. During that season, we often wondered if joy and fulfillment would ever be the norm again. We are thankful for each other. Two weeks ago, Nancy and I got away for the weekend. We laughed so much and enjoyed each other’s company. We suddenly realized: We are laughing again.
Our three kids have been successful in school this year. Anahi has learned to read. Nicole and Mark are both active in the church worship team. I finished a specialization in a local university. Nancy finished her first semester of theological studies.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, my friend.

I love hosting CMA teams. Their excitement and passion fill you up.

This year CMA Paraguay became an officially chartered nation with CMA International. This recognition has encouraged and blessed the work of CMA Paraguay. God is good an…
