The Abominable Snowman

The Abominable Snowman

So our community group, back in the states, sent us a package for Christmas. We didn’t end up getting it until after the new year, but it was well worth the wait. It was full of white-elephant (dirty Santa) gifts!

What Was Inside?

Let’s see…among the gifts was my favorite, the abominable snowman. You put it in water and then it grows over a three day period into three-times it’s normal size. I’ve happened to discover that I like hiding it around the house. So every few days it’s placed in different locations. Loads of fun for all involved.

So What Does This Have to do With Being in Germany?

Absolutely nothing. But it has everything to do with having great friends and supporters. People who will stand by you. People who will laugh with you. People who will pray with you.

We love our community group. Receiving fun gifts like this makes me feel loved and supported. And I enjoy the silly gifts. I guess I’m trying to say that it’s a blessing when we get surprises. And it’s a blessing to have great supporters like our community group and others who are willing to stand by us while we are over here in Germany.

Thank You

Thanks community group for all your prayers and care. We love every note and little gift you send our way. You have more of an impact than I can ever convey. We love you. Know that your sacrifice for us will not go unnoticed. You are all in our prayers as well.

Here are the Gifts Being Used

    Glad to see you had so much fun with the gifts. Most people would just try to find a thrift store to take them to. 🙂
