Tonight we had a Thanksgiving celebration at The
Falls apartments for the families who participate
in the afterschool program. We shared with them
how Thanksgiving started in this country. We shared
a section of scripture. We sang a few songs and
then we all shared a meal together. At the end I
gave each family one of Dr Stanley's "Messengers" in
Spanish. Thanks to FBA for getting these for me to
give our families!

I love Fall! To me it is the most beautiful time
of year. The colorful leaves and crisp air kind
of rejuvenate my spirit. Yesterday it was raining
so the attendance at afterschool was down. It was
still good to see the children and to help them
with their work. Today we had a meeting at The Falls.
This afternoon I went to one of the apartments in
Clarkston. Leah and Deborah enjoyed working with the
kids there. Many of the children we know but some are
new to the program there. I am grateful for my time
to share with the director there. Thank you, my friend!

So far this week has been a good one. Working with
the children can sometimes be a challenge especially
when there isn't enough help. It seems like someone
is always saying "Miss Cathy, I need help." Today I
encouraged some of the older kids who had no homework
to help the younger kids. Then God blessed us by
sending a high school student who could help one of
our middle school girls who doesn't know English.

We have had a very full week with the
World's Mission Conference at First
Baptist Atlanta. We had awesome speakers.
We had wonderful times of fellowship with
other missionaries from all over the world.
We made new friends and saw old friends.
We shared about what God is doing in
our ministry. Thanks to ALL who made it
