On New Year's Eve morning, we had a church service here at Stephen & Mary's. It was a service to thank God for all of the blessings of the past year and to look ahead to the New Year. There were around 100 people that came from Chiang Mai & different villages. There were four languages spoken during this service! This always amazes me when different people groups come together as the body of Christ to praise & worship Him! Even more amazing is that even though we can't understand each other, God understands & knows every language & every heart!

|This little girl started the service with a special song - so cute!|
|A song sung in Lahu|
|A song sung in Thai|
|A song sung in Lisu|
|Another song sung in Thai|

It was a great day thanksgiving, praise & worship, reflection, & looking ahead!
May God bless each of you in 2012!
