We had a wonderful Thanksgiving here in Taiwan (even though it was away from family). We had the opportunity to get together with 3 other missionary families, 2 single missionaries, and an American family here teaching English. There were 21 of us in all. We had an abundance of delicious food and a great time of praising the Lord together. We are so thankful and so blessed to have such wonderful, godly friends.

I'm so thankful for the little things that made it feel like Thanksgiving.

I loved the cute little name turkeys! :o)

After we ate, we had a time where we gather together to sing and give praise to God. It was really neat to sing as a group. There were also a few specials. We also had a Bible story reading done by Mark Lehman. Then we ended by giving testimonies of thanks.

After eating and singing, we broke up into a couple different groups. Most of the guys went to a nearby field and played flag football. They had a blast (and no one was hurt - too badly! :o) Then the ladies went for a walk around the neighborhood. It was beautiful and we had a great time chatting as we walked. We were able to meet a few of the neighbors. :o)

Then we got back together and played a few different group games. We ended the night with playing a huge group game of Balderdash.

But not before the food was busted out again and warmed back up for another snack.

So what does Chinese Turkey look like?? We missed you guys. We just stayed home this year, so we missed the fun of family also. Andy and Davina, our friends from seminary came and were our family this year. We will all be together again soon... I hope!!
