What a gift to be able to celebrate the fourth of July in America this year. Honestly, I'm not really a patriotic person and range from very opinionated about politics to completely useless and ignorant. BUT, being here after a year and a half living in Africa makes me so thankful for this place and humbled that God allowed me to be born here. Because I am an American by birth I have privileges that I would never have in any other country and God has brought me to see His glory in incredible places all over the world. God is amazing and I am thankful for all He has given us in Cape Town, but today I am thankful for America, the freedom to worship God and profess my faith with confidence, and take His love all over the world.
