I have always loved Thanksgiving. I love being in church and hearing testimonies of what God has done and is doing in other people's lives. Here, in our ministry, there are very few times I am able to be in the services due to me being the SS teacher. So, when I am able to sit in the services every now and then on Wednesday nights (if extra curricular schedules conflict and keep my teen girls away from their discipleship lessons with me), I love hearing our church family share something from what they read in their devotions or watch the "light bulb" come on when they understand a truth from God's word.
This past Sunday my husband shared that during the am service they went around the room and shared what each of them are thankful for. Here were a few of their comments:
Lady #1: "I am thankful that for the first time in our family, we have peace among us."
Lady #2: " I am thankful that I have a God who cares about me and is there for me. When I need to make a decision He is there for me." (this dear lady accepted Christ this past summer and is the newest Christian who attends our services!)
Man #1: "I am thankful for my salvation, that we even had the opportunity to accept Christ as our Savior."
What a blessing to hear them share their hearts and be thankful! We praise the Lord for YOU, those of you who prayerfully and financially support our family and ministry so that we can have the wonderful privilege of sharing the gospel with souls on the other side of the globe. God is good!

Today, November 2nd, 2014 is a special day for our family as it marks 15 years of serving the Lord on the mission field of Siberia, Russia. It is truly hard to believe we have been here for that long!
I put together this slide show to share with you many of the blessings we have witnessed over the years.
God is GOOD!
We would like to express our sincere appreciate to those of you who have prayed, given, encouraged, and loved us along the way.
We truly could not have stayed here this long without you holding the ropes for us!
We look forward to many more years and many more blessings.
We have so many dreams, hopes, and wishes that we beg God to allow us to see come to fruition here in Siberia.
Please pray for us as we continue on in His name.
