Oudoor Thanksgiving in Hong Kong

We had Thanksgiving twice this year, both times outdoors.  First at our church last Sunday with a hundred or so people.  Wayne was assigned to make the mashed potatoes, so we got up early to peel many potatoes, mashed 'em, packed 'em into two aluminum pans and carried them through three different subway lines, many many steps, a taxi ride, and across a busy street.  We were late for church, but not for the meal :)

Then on Thursday we celebrated with about 25 people out on the lawn, after work, since of course there was no holiday for us!  It was in the 70's, and very, very pleasant with Chinese, Finnish, Swedish, German, and American guests.

"Then it was said among the nations, 'The Lord had done great things for them.'
The Lord has done great things for us, and we rejoiced."  -- Psalm 126
