10 funny mission experiences

Proverbs 31:25 “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.”

Christmas is fast approaching. Therefore, I thought I would prepare a list of some of the funny things that happened to us with on mission. Mission work is difficult at times but does provide for lots of laughs also. I hope you enjoy it.

  1. Kissed a giraffe on the mouth.
  2. Learned to braid goat intestines.
  3. Was tricked into watching a cow be butchered for my dinner.
  4. Had a baboon watch me go to the bathroom behind a rock.
  5. Petted a real, live cheetah and survived it.
  6. Helped construct a building using cow manure for plaster.
  7. Took Nepal children to dinner and learned they had never tasted ice cream or ridden on an escalator.
  8. Learned to call myself “Crazy White Person” in a tribal language.
  9. Bathed in an outdoor shower while someone milked a cow in the stall next to me.
  10. Learned how to “knock” on a door for a home made of plastic sheeting. (clue – you clapped your hands loudly).

Merry Christmas and May the Lord Bless you this Christmas time
