~Day 17 of...my 30 days of Thanks!
I am VERY GRATEFUL to Jesus for our DEAR MISSION DIRECTOR BRO. MARK BECKER AND HIS SWEET WIFE SIS. KRISTAL! I've known Bro. Becker since I was tinky. He used to carry me around when I was 18 months. When my Grandpa Bryan died in a tragic death over Christmas break, Bro. Mark bought me a cute little Curious George! Bro. and Sis. Becker have been missionaries themselves for around 18 years, so they KNOW exactly how it is to be a missionary. The culture shock in the new field, the burdens one bears for their people, the sorrows and THE JOYS, the tears and the SMILES, raising 3rd CULTURE KIDS, (Our kids aren't 100% American, for they haven't lived there for the last 10 years. So they are PART American, Part Costa Rican, Part Colombian, Part Argentinan! :-) the learning to enjoy the "natives's food," the return culture shock when going back to the U.S.A., etc. The Beckers are very DEAR GODLY people who LOVE, and who have a HUGE SERVANT'S HEART!! They are always very SUPPORTIVE of their missionaries ...making us feel like "ROYALTY." Bro. Becker is a very wise man and gives great advice! We feel very privileged to have the Beckers as our Mission Directors!! :-)

I'm grateful for CHOCOLATE! :-)
~OUR LORD'S DAY!~~This dear young man and his parents are leaving Argentina, and we probably won't see them again. They had a special prayer time for them at church, and then we all walked around and said goodbye.~
She's a dear and we got along great! :-) ~
