Today I celebrate 100 days of living in Asia.
Although I have many more days left here, I decided I would do a little recap to catch you up, through pictures, to where I am today!
- I turned 22 very shortly after “getting off the boat” and we all went out to dinner to celebrate!
- Immediately taught 2 weeks of K, 5th, and 7th, then we took off for a few days of R&R in Davao.
Neo and I spent most of our days by the hotel pool.
One of our last days in Davao we went to the croc park. We got to feed ostriches, tigers, and crocodiles.
So right here, I was weeping on the inside and making small whimpering noises. A tiny little fence was all that separated my body from a tiger’s mouth. And no, this is not the same as a Thai monastery tiger you can hand feed and snuggle with, this was the Jurassic Park of tigers. I’ve seen the movies; I know how this story ends.
On our way out of the park, we stopped in the gift shop to rehydrate and it’s a good thing we did. These signs were worth it!
- Our last day in Davao was also Philippine Independence Day!
- Our home country’s independence day was here before we knew it.
- July also brought conference with all the other New Tribes missionaries on our island. It was a wonderful time getting to know all the other missionaries and hang out with their MKs too!
- For Belinda’s “25th” birthday, we went to Duka Bay for the weekend. It was exactly what each of us needed. A little R&R, sunshine, waves, and a break from the view of our school room.
- I’m just going to brag a little about myself… I successfully made angel food cake without a mixer. Difficult to do for an amateur baker! Not every cake mixing will make you break a sweat!
- My precious little niece, Rosalie Lyn, made her dramatic entrance into the world on September 3rd! I love starting a new month with new life!
- We even celebrated little Rosie’s BIRTH-day all the way in the Philippines! She is already loved by so many people!
- A first this month for me: making my very own homemade doughnuts without any of the needed tools; quite successfully too!
- This last weekend we went for a walk around the tree park to take some family pictures and topped it off with a picnic in the park!
- And here are the people I spend the majority of my time with:
- I am so happy I could be a part of the Moffit family for the past 100 days! Here’s to the next…however many I have left!
