We Give Thanks for You!
Dawn and I give thanks for you! We are grateful for all your prayers and encouragement. We hope and pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We will be with our family in Michigan and are excited to meet our new granddaughter.
When I think about Thanksgiving, and this time of year I stop and give thanks for God’s many blessings. I can’t help but also think about our familia in Mexico, on the Big Island, and in the Dominican Republic. I’m thankful for each of the pastors and leaders that we have the privilege of working with. I’m grateful that we can help those in need.
One of our dear friends, Yoliztli* who helps us to distribute the aid that we are sending to our familia on the Big Island sent me this testimony. I’ve translated what Yoliztli wrote so that you can read her story as well. This testimony is about Noemí* and her family.
“Noemí lives with her husband and her mother. Only her husband can work. He works with the State and receives a very low salary. Noemí cannot work because she is taking care of her mother full-time who is bedridden. She started to cry when she received the help that you sent and she told me what they were going through. Her mother got sick and they had no money at home, only what she had received from me that day.
14ymedio.com states that “According to the VI Report on the State of Social Rights in Cuba, considering total household income, 88% of Cubans live in extreme poverty and 62% of those consulted said they have problems buying the most essential things to survive. Due to lack of money or scarcity, 78% said that they had skipped a daily meal, only 5% had obtained medicines from official pharmacies and 15% took expired medicines.”

Video: Life and Times on the Big Island
This short video will give you a glimpse into how God is at work on the Big Island. Some of the people who are receiving the aid that we are sending share their thanks at the end of the video. It’s heartwarming to see.
Thank you for joining us in prayer, and for considering making a gift to help our precious familia.
