Our October newsletter should be in the mail shortly!
We are also thinking about how differently we will celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas here. It is the first year for our family to be alone during the holidays. Usually holidays are marked with family gatherings...cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents, and great-grandparents. This year, it is just our little family. Yes, we realize it is something we must get used to, and will probably come to enjoy more and more as our children grow and we develop our own special ways of celebrating. We also know that in Tana, there is a small missionary community in the same situation. I would expect there is some sense of community during holiday celebrations? Anyhow, for now, perhaps it is a chance to reflect on the significance of the season without the distractions of outward celebrations.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
