    No, I’ve never been on one yet! Hopefully sometime soon I’ll get to go.
    It’s true. And God definitely chooses people to send to the most dangerous areas of the world, and then he chooses people to go to less dangerous places that are in just as much need of Him. 🙂

    I mean, being a weird taco sounds kind of fun. Besides the fact that I can’t eat tacos now…but life goals, man. Life goals.

    Wow! That takes guts. A lot of people would prefer to be sent somewhere safer. The cool thing about God is that He leads us and makes things clear to us, so we don’t have to worry about what life holds for us…because God holds it all. Have you ever been on a missions trip?

    Nope, I really don’t know what country yet. I’d honestly love to travel all over. Where would you like to be a missionary?

  • That’s cool! Tagalog, huh. I’ve actually never heard of it! I can see how having those two different cultures would be strange. My dad is in the Army, so I’m used to that kind of life, and it’s weird talking with people who don’t understand it at all and trying to explain the differences.

  • Okay, yeah, I’ve done hooked bowing before. 😉

    Jada, how long have you been playing?

    Hullo!

    Man, almost everybody seems to live out in the country…and have large families! What kind of coffee do you enjoy?

    *clutches hand over heart* This deeply grieves me. They’ve…discovered…I’m…weird. But really, tomatoes and tacos do have a lot in common. Not only do they go excellently together, but they both start with T…

    Ah no!! That can definitely happen. We have some sort of bird or some crazy animal hopping our fence and taking bites out of ours. Sometimes it’s a little hole, and other times a huge chunk is missing and I really don’t know what to think. Ooh and rice. Rice is good for tacos. And, like tomatoes, in general.

    I think it’s important to remember the context of passages in the Bible. The people of Israel were continually sinning against God without repentance. The men were captivated by sinful women. They intermarried with women from other nations who followed false gods and that really put the people of Israel into an oppressive state. They were swayed…[Read more]

    Amanda, the other life goal is to follow Jesus Christ and love Him and do what He wants me to do. 🙂 Though, I don’t think He wants me to be a taco, so… I might have to get rid of the other one and pretend I never saw this thread. 😉

    Tomatoes, anybody?? Fresh garden tomatoes on tacos are the bomb. Fresh garden tomatoes are the bomb, but with…[Read more]

    Wow, a hippo would be…interesting. 😉 A bit scary. Maybe you could play real life ‘Hungry Hungry Hippos’, though.
    I found your book on Amazon! Now to buy and read it… 😀

  • Rachel Lester replied to the topic Hujambo! in the forum Start HERE 1 year, 9 months ago

    Ah! I love Captain America. He’s really underrated as far as character development goes. There’s a lot there that’s hard to catch. They’ve done an excellent job with him. And, honestly, Loki is another favorite of mine. I know, I know, he’s a bad guy…but Tom Hiddleston does a marvelous job. I’m also looking forward to Ant Man! Have you watched…[Read more]

    It was cool, but it was also embarrassing not actually being able to converse in Swahili as I haven’t practiced in a while. But it was nice knowing I was on track with pronunciation! I’d love to go to Africa. God has called me to the mission field. I don’t know what that’s going to look like, but I’m excited.

    I think there’s around eight books…[Read more]

  • I love country life. I’ve never lived in the countryside, but I belong there. 😉

    Okay, vibrato is really fun, but sometimes it just doesn’t work and it’s frustrating and I wish it was like 100x better. YES playing fast and clear and not bow-bouncing is so difficult! Ay! Hooked bowing…I’m not familiar with that term. I’ve been ‘playing’ since I…[Read more]

  • Rachel Lester replied to the topic Queens? in the forum Novel Ideas 1 year, 9 months ago

    So, questions like these are important!

    We have to remember the culture of those in the Bible, the context of the verses, and what was happening. God raises up women to become amazing leaders who will speak His truth, light and freedom into this world. Just think about Esther. Sure, she was under Xerxes, but she still made a difference in a…[Read more]

    If only it could be said I accomplished much… I really need to practice. Yup, Swahili is an African language. It’s spoken in several countries. They use the English alphabet. The cool thing is, this week my family is helping with VBS and the theme is ‘Camp Kilimanjaro’. Mt. Kilimanjaro is in Tanzania, which is a Swahili-speaking country. Well,…[Read more]
