I’m participating in a “blog hop” of BMWs–Baptist Missionary Women, hosted by the blog for which I contribute my Missional Monday’s musings. We’re writing five fun or interesting facts about ourselves, and if you follow the links at the end of each post, you will get to hop around to several expat missionary women’s blogs. Many give interesting personal pictures of ministry, culture, and homeschooling around the world. Check them out, and you may find a thoughtful writer who challenges and blesses you.
Since most of my readers know me, I’ll try to think of five unique things:
- I’m the baby of four girls and always thought I would not make a good “boy mom.” (I now have three boys.)
- I wanted to be a missionary’s wife but always added the mental parenthetical disclaimer, “Just not in Africa!” (I wanted to go somewhere cold, not hot and buggy.)
- I bought my wedding dress at a thrift store for under $100 (three years before I was married!)
- When I had my fingerprints taken in order to renew my visa for South Africa, they said my prints were quite worn down and might be rejected by the FBI. Interesting. Why would my prints be worn down–all those years of playing the piano?
- I finally learned how to pump gas this last January 2015 at age 32.
It’s my privilege to introduce another contributor to the BMW blog, always a thought-provoking, humorous writer, Charity. I’m guessing she’ll come up with some really fun 5 facts about herself. Hop over to Road Schooling to check out life in Asia!
