|Little bldg in our rice paddies....in winter|
I've hit on a new project. PCS season on a military base is amazing. Massive groups of people are moving. They cannot take many food and cleaning items with them. As we have a large family, we often are blessed with the bits and pieces...and it IS fun to try new things etc. As I visited with our new friends I asked if they would be o.k. accepting things that are still good but have been opened and can't be packed. They would love it.....and so an idea is born. I'm going to see if there are other missionary families "near by" - have a lead or two...and during PCS season I will let folks know they can drop their leftovers with me and I'll be sure they get to a missionary family. This will provide the family a touch of home as well as help to stretch dollars in the midst of the yen/dollar dive. It will also provide those leaving the excuse NOT to eat up or use up every bit in their pantry or incur guilt. LOL I'm excited to see where this idea goes.
I rounded out the day Skyping with Lauren..... This had become a normal part of life when we were both serving on Asia Region's board - 2009-2011. Lauren is an admin extraordinaire and a techie pro. I learned a lot from watching her projects for a couple of years. She amazes me. It was fun to spend time catching up this afternoon.
Tonight - a party for Zander!
