This past Sunday night we had a great Canadian Thanksgiving dinner right here in Baku. A wonderful couple named George and Wanda hosted at their home. Several ladies cooked up turkey with stuffing and gravy. Everyone brought some food and we had tons to eat. We also met some new Canadian friends. In the middle of all this I just want to say that I am thankful.

Thankful for … a loving wife and four amazing children.

Thankful for … health and safety living overseas.

Thankful for … old friends who support and pray for us.

Thankful for … new friends who have welcomed us with open arms.

Thankful for …┬áthe Lord and all His blessings to us.

Happy Thanksgiving, David

    What a great picture. I wish I could enlarge it to see it better. Happy Thanksgiving to your family too. We are so blessed as Canadians (yet so prone to complain! :-)

    I see your family picture on the side of my fridge everyday and I always mean to write, guess there is no excuses but at least I got to it tonight as soon as I thought it. You guys have been on my mind a lot lately.
    I have so much to be thankful for this and every year although thanksgiving is so different with out my parents and all of the extended family getting together I still remember to be thankful. I can only imagine what it must be for you all to be so far from family all the time, it sounds like you have a wonderful new “family ” there to be blessed with.
    We miss you all, god bless!

    That’s great. We had a beautiful Thanksgiving here as well. The weather was unbelievable for October. First time I think I’ve worn shorts that weekend. I was missing Lisa at our family dinner. She’s always been the life of the party. It was strange. But she was having her own worship party. Take care guys. Diane
