One where they could worship God freely without risk of harm, and where they could be the influencers of their children. I am thankful that they had the vision and the courage to make the journey. Half did not survive the first winter, and yet...God's hand was with them.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. There is so much to be thankful for! Today I am thankful for the way God uses our unique and even painful circumstances to give us wisdom in how to pray for others.

    Our four year period of pain with Gene's illness and death and Dad's passing have been very helpful in this past week to minister to others.

    Weird thing to be thankful for?
    Probably.
