Thanksgiving Week 2011

Sue says:
As we were singing praises to God with our new congregation in Seabrook, Maryland, today, I was thanking the Lord that even though we have moved yet again, He has joined us to another group of believers that honor Him.
Jeff has had the opportunity in recent weeks to teach one of the adult Sunday school classes, and today all the fellowship had a Thanksgiving meal together. What a joy to share with a multi-generational, cross-cultural group in thanking the maker of all people.

I'm thankful too that this week I was able to compile an email list of some 50 organizations that attended the last missions conference our Bible college and seminary held. Responses are coming in showing interest in setting up display tables for missions organizations and in leading workshops too. What a relief that things are coming along in this regard.

We are also thanking God that we live close enough this year to stay in touch with our family members by regular telephone calls.

The Joys of Autumn

Sue says:
Have I mentioned that we are thoroughly enjoying the beauty of autumn?

We captured this fiery maple tree a couple weeks ago in Blacksburg, and just yesterday we saw burning bush, sweet gum and even oaks that were brilliant hues here in Maryland.

Another joy of fall is looking forward to spring. A neighbor and I planted spring bulbs in the bed in front of our apartment building. We anticipate the time the things we put in the ground come up to tell us spring has arrived. We hope they will bring cheer to our neighbors.

We thank those who have been praying for us. Jeff's headaches are generally better than they were. Plans for the missions conference are coming along. Relationships with the students here are growing. We are able to be in closer contact with our family members. We thank God for granting these good things.

New Grandchild Arrives!

Sue says:
Children are such a blessing. And to see one's grandchildren is even more special. (We get to enjoy. The children do the hard work.) 

Last week our Number 2 and his wife had their Number 1. Yes, they look tired, don't they. Little One sleeps all day and wants to be awake all night. But we all are delighted he and his family are doing as well as can be expected.

Early Snowfall

Sue says: It's unusual that snow falls before the deciduous trees have dropped their leaves, but this year it happened. A couple of inches of snow came down in our area of Maryland. It was sunny the next day, and the snow disappeared.
