As this Thanksgiving Day comes to a close I would like to say thank you to all my new friends I have met here in Jland. I hesitate to name them all because I have met so many and I do not want to forget anyone.
I pray that God gives all of you many blessings this year and the years to come.
I pray for you to be happy with where God sends you.
I pray for your days to be full of love and joy.
I pray for God to keep you and all your families safe from harm.
I pray that you would all be financially able to live a prosperous life.
God Bless You Everyone.
