On Sunday, November 18, we celebrated our Thanksgiving dinner with Sr. Janet Lehmen, S.C., Dr. Wanitha Ceus, Jean-Philip, Gesmar, Ludwica and Mathilda. Even in the midst of the problems of the country, we all needed to pause and Give Thanks with Grateful Hearts for the life and blessings we have here in Haiti.
We brought a turkey, which fed us all, from our last visit to the States. From our garden, we were able to make homemade pumpkin pie. It was a blessed feast. As we gathered, we gave thanks for our personal blessings.
After our feast, we gathered for prayer and adoration in thanksgiving for our mission here, as well as for all the blessings received. We also prayed for peace and harmony in the country, as it seems to be in great turmoil during this time.
