Giving Thanks (1)

In our Bible Reading today, the writer says that he trusted God (verse 4). Today and for the next three days we will talk about a group of people who trusted God to take care of them.
In 1620 a group of people left Plymouth, England to sail to America. These people are often called “Pilgrims.” They hoped to find religious freedom in the new land. One hundred and two passengers sailed on the ship called the Mayflower.
The journey to America was very hard. The conditions on the ship were cold and damp. Many people became sick and two died before they reached land on November 11th. These people were willing to face these bad conditions so they could be free to worship God.
Many people around the world do not have the freedom to worship God. Pray for these people. Ask God to guide them and keep them close to Him.
