Thanksgiving with my family

Happy Thanksgiving.

Last year, I was away for Thanksgiving- spending it with my very good friends in Venezuela. This year, I am back with my family. It has been an enjoyable day of sharing with my family, talking, reminiscing about old times, eating great food, and having a good time.

It has been hard waiting for the time when God will be sending me to the DR, but in the meantime, it is good to be with my family and be able to spend these precious holidays with them.

I know, I know. It's been a long time since I have been on my blog. I am sorry. I have not been motivated to write and have not really had anything to write about. I admit, I have been a bit discouraged. However, I am trying to get over that.

Last weekend, I visited a church in Bucyrus, Ohio- a 2 hour drive away. I "accidentally" found this church's website when I was looking for something else. I became intrigued when I saw that this church (in Ohio) has a hispanic ministry.

Both the English and Spanish services were very good. The Spanish service lasted 3.5 hours and was quite charismatic. Everything in Spanish was translated into English, which made it difficult to understand at times because of 2 languages happening at the same time.

After the service, I spoke with the pastor, who was thrilled to find out that I (1) speak Spanish and (2) am a missionary in Latin America. He gave me his email address and wants to keep in touch with me. Perhaps God is providing a divine connection with this church.

Anyway, I am just trying to trust Him with everything. I know there is a reason He has delayed me in going to the DR. I just have to trust in Him and His perfect timing.
