Behind, but bursting with thanks!

The past month has been very full of travel for me.  I have reported about the ministry in Turkana in a different church every Sunday.  That has kept me very busy with travel and spending time with my hosts.  It has made it hard for me to find time to sit down and write in my blog.  I logged 3900 miles on my car for the month of September and that is just the long trips, not the local travel once I got to a place.  I have kept up with writing my thanks though, so I will post my thanks list for September 11 - 30th on this post.  Sorry, I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked, but I hope you still enjoy the list and are encouraged to keep your own!
