Thanksgiving . . . 

"Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together."   --Edward Winslow, 1621

Almost 400 years later, newcomers to America still find reasons to rejoice and offer thanks to God.

Here is a sampling of our adult ESL students' thoughts about this special time of year:

At Literacy Connexus we're thankful for you!  

For your prayers and support, and the opportunity to serve together on behalf of families in need.
