Yabus Thanksgiving

We thought of you all so much yesterday but were quite content and grateful for our first Sudanese Thankgiving. It was a blessing and encouragement to our hearts.

For our meal we had chicken, rice, and pumpkin pie for dessert. I can't believe it, but the pie was PERFECT! It was so exciting for me seeing as I had to make do with ingredients we had and baked it in a large metal pan on a charcoal fire! I put about 2 inches of sand on the bottom of the metal pan, put the pie pan in, covered it with a metal lid and put more coal on top. It worked beautifully. I think I might try making brownies next.

We invited Kassu and Meseret and their family, David, who lives behind us, and our two visiting teachers who will be teaching our pastor conference this week. We went around the table and each shared what we're especially thankful for this year.

Our pastors' conference kicks off tomorrow. We'll be hosting 30+ men here on our compound. So we've cleaned out 2 tents, 3 large huts, and the room next to David behind our house. We'll have lots of people around for the next 2 weeks. I hope all goes well making sure they're all taken care of, fed, and all that. What a blessing to be a part of this!

Here's a picture of my beautiful pie. :)
