2 months!

yesterday was our two-monthiversary of living here in kampala!
to commemorate, we took a team picture outside our house:

trevor, nick, jamie holding jude and noah in front of me {why yes our kids were totally not co-operating for the picture, how did you know?}.
we are indeed loving life here, settling into ministry, making new friends and learning to drive in this crazy city {we got a car, by the way!}. 
we are so thankful for your thoughts, emails and prayers so keep them coming and stay tuned for our next email update!

Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving here. 
We even had turkey and pumpkin pie!
There is much to be thankful for here and it was great to go around the table and talk about some of the blessings in our lives we are thankful for.
Often there are things in our lives that don't appear to be "blessings" but God calls us to "rejoice" and "give thanks" over and over in His Word and so, we practice the art of giving thanks. In all our circumstances.
Sometimes, though, the overt blessings like pumpkin pie make us want to click our heels in joy!
So thankful for a Canadian Thanksgiving dinner here in Uganda!
