Thankfulness

We celebrated thanksgiving here in South Africa with 15 other American missionaries. Thinking back over this past month, I certainly have a lot to be thankful for!

David has a job teaching 8th and 9th grade math at Grace College, a local high school in Hilton.

The view over the sports fields at Grace College. You can see the Drakensberg mountains from the school, and sometimes in the winter, you can see snow on them.

The Jabulani Kids Club Christmas party was a success! We had over 260 kids (and a bit of a panic because we only had supplies for 200–but it all worked out).

There were so many kids we didn't have enough crafts, so the little ones just danced during craft time.

I work with an amazing group of people. They inspire me everyday with their enthusiasm and dedication. We just had a fun day at uShaka Marine world as a reward for all successfully completing the 6 most important tasks we had in the past 6 weeks. We had lots of fun on the slides, and then some of the iThemba guys started playing volley ball in the pool (and managed to get all the kids singing and dancing and playing, too). One mother thought that we were a professional volleyball team!

The iThemba team...and the ball that made people think we were professional volleyball players??

Somehow I don't think this one needs a caption.

Praise God for how he has provided for David and I in these past 3 months here in South Africa. 

What are you thankful for?
