Hey JP,

We had one of those storms last night that come only once or so each rainy season in Congo. You know the kind that make you stand in awe and laugh at the sheer magnitude. It was the kind of storm that gives a hint of what Noah might have seen. It was awesome.

There was a huge flash of light followed immediately by a clap of thunder that shook the house and made all the animals run for cover. Then all heaven broke loose. It was like the bottom fell out of a lake in the sky and the water tumbled down on us. It was almost like standing under a water fall or being dashed by a huge wave. There was such a quantity of water I wondered if the roof could handle it. This went on for hours.

I'm always thankful for these displays. It reminds me that God is much more majestic and powerful than I often consider. It reminds me that He's capable of things that I haven't even dreamed of. It also reminds me I'm really a very small player in the grand scheme of things. God is awesome!

So, on this Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for an awesome God. I'm really thankful that God is for us and not against us. That would be bad. I'm very thankful that in His plan He saw fit to send us here to Congo and to let us serve Him here.

We're thankful for all our friends who support our ministry here and for the churches that consider us their missionaries. The people of God are awesome !

Thanks for your love and support and prayers ! We still need them.

Most of all, this Thanksgiving remember what an awesome God we serve! He alone is worthy of our highest praise. To God be the glory.

In Christ's Love,

Mike and Jill
