We as missionary momma’s have made it a tradition to get our kiddos together around Halloween and let the kiddos dress up, trick or treat from bedroom to bedroom, carve pumpkins, bake cookies, and just have fun together. Even though African countries don’t “celebrate” Halloween (for which I am mostly grateful), we try to let our kids get to do some of the things we did as a child and that are cherished memories for us and let them make their own memories.

About a month ago I blogged about our dear friends the Wint’s coming through. This past week were on their way from Johannesburg, South Africa where they had their newest little one (Micah) back to their home in Zambia. We were so glad to get to spend time with them!
