A Canadian Thanksgiving...in Mexico

Lauren with Jackson Bursey
Hi there blog followers!

Hope the weather isn't getting too cold up there. It's still high 20's here at night. ;)

So this past weekend was Thanksgiving (in Canada), and being that we ARE Canadian, we put together a lovely thanksgiving feast with some of our Canadian friends here. It was so nice to have some traditional "comfort" food and remember how blessed we are being able to work here in Mexico.

As we continue to wait on some of the legal stuff, we do not lose spirit! A few days ago, we got a playground for the orphanage!! And shortly after,  a youth group came by and helped us start preparing the area for the playground to be set up. It's exciting stuff, and I'll be sure to send a picture your way when we finish putting it together.

This youth group also assisted us with getting all of our mattresses set up. It's so cool seeing everything fall into place. We're definitely getting excited and anxious!

I'm fitting in quite well here. I even got invited out for tacos the other night! I felt so... Mexican. Haha
