Toes in the Mud!

While everyone on the other side of the world was celebrating another Packer victory (2-0!!), we were waking up. This morning we woke up at 5am to go and weed a rice field. This wasn't one of our usual tasks but the fields were so behind on their weeding that it needed alot of helpful hands. And come on, its every kids dream to just wake up and go play in the mud! It was hard work, but the view of the sunrise over the mountains made it all worth it.
Walking out to the rice fields at 5 am!
As the morning went on and the locals started heading to their own fields they kept stopping and staring into our field. When Michiel (one of our fellow missionaries) would ask them why they were standing there staring they would reply, "This is the first time I have ever seen an American in the rice field." lol. So atleast we were able to make the day memorable for everyone else. And now the rice can breathe! Yay! Till next time...

This looks like a scene from "Pride and Prejudice" Gorgeous!
