By David Prairie My wife (Brandi) and I love the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The main protagonist, George Bailey (played by Jimmy Stewart), is one of the most admirable characters I’ve ever come across in a film.

As eager as we are to begin a new season of life in Moldova, we did very much enjoy the opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family last week. We are thankful to God for each of you who read these updates, pray for us, and sacrifice financially as we work towards raising our support. … More Filled with Thankfulness
