We were excited to see that there were turkeys for sale in Beni and since we had a trip down there the week before Thanksgiving some of the guys ordered a bunch. Joel Hensen and I picked them up and brought them back to Nyankunde. But, in the end, it was thought that they needed a bit of fattening up before they became dinner. I don’t know, they seemed pretty heavy to me. Maybe a little muscular. I guess fat is more tender!
Our MAF team and guests gathered together at our house and shared lots of food. Chickens worked well in place of turkeys and it felt very much like a traditional Thanksgiving. We truly have so much to be thankful for: a beautiful place to live and work, relative peace and calm, fellowship with family and friends, food and shelter. We don’t have to look far to see the bounty God has blessed us with. We sang praises to our Lord and told him we were grateful. It was a lovely day.
