My Kids
 
Missionary kids are cool. 
"You're just saying that cuz your kids are missionary kids."
Yep.
 
They get to do cool stuff. Like ride on tiny boats in the big ocean. They get to eat exotic foods. They get to name babies, and learn other languages. 
 
But, they're also very 'normal'. 
 
They go to school...

They bake stuff with mom... (the only abnormal thing about that is Belinda Moffit actually baking something!)

 They play computer games...

 They act silly...

 They go to the doctor...(um, yes, I believe he does, in fact, still need to wear glasses)

 They like having their toes painted...

Thank you, God, for all the exciting adventures. And thank you also for the 'normal', even mundane times. Most of all, thanks for giving me three very cool MK's.

Travels

We always attend our annual missionary conference at the beginning of each year. And so, since we're traveling anyways, we like to take advantage of the opportunity to get around and see other missionary friends! 

Although the land mass of the Philippines is only the size of Arizona, it takes two full days to travel to our friends village on a neighboring island! 1 truck, 1 van, 2 planes, 1 tiny boat on the open ocean.

But it's oh, so worth it!! 

Seeing friends, seeing other parts of this beautiful country, and seeing God at work!!

Half-way through our travels...a stop at our friends, 'The Pilot's Family'. 
Yes, this man is a highly-trained, highly-educated pilot. He is also
highly-skilled at the 'Ninja Fruit' game!  

On the island, Neo quickly falls in love with our friend's pet crow, Mordecai. 
Mordecai has black hair, always wants someone to play with him, 
and touches things that don't belong to him....hmmmm, 
not unlike someone else we know!

 Of course, the best part of the trip was visiting with good friends.

 

 
Another highlight was hearing the Good News being taught clearly 
in the heart language of the people on the island!

Once off the island, there was a conference to attend (more time with fellow missionaries) and a workshop for Josh to be a part of. It was a good trip, and we're thankful for the chance to get around and see what God is doing in other parts of the Philippines! Now we're ready to get into a routine again!

Wherever we were, Neo was the odd 'man' out. 
He didn't mind!
