From Jake:

"But what can I do?"

This is a news article worth reading:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/6164134.stm

A kid, poor, a slave, but inteligent and hard working has potentially changed the course of a region of one of the most populous countries in the world.

What could he do? He grew up as a slave, but he achieved anyway. It sounds corny, but it is true.

Read it.

Jake, it scares me when I think of how little I do to "change my world". But I do my best to "listen" to God who gives me my direction. He sometimes uses others like Jake & Jessica to help me know where to go and what to do.

Jake and Jessica,
it is good to read what you have to say. I enjoy reading about how you are getting along in your new home. Let us know how your Thanksgiving went, I guess we both live in countries that don't normally celebrate it. Here in Australia we have jumped straight into the Christmas season. Very strange seeing as though it is in the 80's, hard to sing "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" :-) Hopefully we will be celebrating Thanksgiving this Saturday if I am not in the hospital delivering a baby :-)

Sweet Potato Casserole...yum!!!

Much love from Oz,
