I would like to pass this award on to some of the newer blogs I have been reading lately.

This is written by Siberia tom. Our paths crossed in South America and I count his family among my treasured friends. He began blogging while living and working in Mongolia and now is recently returned to Siberia.

Building 68
A missionary wife who was my neighbor in the missionary complex we both lived at while on furlough. Admittedly, we did most of our visiting in the laundromat! She is writing from the Ukraine.

Hagermans on a MISSION!
Christie is very brave. She just recently arrived here in Paraguay and is living in a small town about two hours away. She has shown a great attitude as she deals with all the new things one has thrown at them when arriving in a new country. I have only met her twice and she is always interesting.

Keepin' the Faith
Another missionary here in the country. We have not met yet, but she writes very well and I feel as if we know each other already!

Portrait of Grace
This is a blogger who I knew as a high school student when I was teaching at a christian school. She writes about home schooling and it has been nice catching up on her 'adult' life!

Rosie Rambles On
The newest blogger on the blog! Rosie and her family served as missionaries in Venezuela for 18 years, where her husband grew up. They worked with the same tribe we did. She has two books published and you will find her writings interesting.

Life Goes On
P writes of her growth as a young christian. She recently went through a difficult time and has shown such maturity and an amazing spirit through it all! I am so proud of her.

fungle jungle
I like this one mostly because of the cool name!

pen of jen / Double Nickel Farm
Not so new, but always a great attitude! She has a window into my home via the web cam but I am sure she will not divulge all that she sees! You will especially enjoy her post which was featured by Michelle Malkin at Thanksgiving! Giving thanks for self-reliant Americans

Chris is a pastor. I knew him as an MK when his father worked in Venezuela.

So, check them out!

Julie said...

I'm honored, Rita. YOU are the great writer and I thoroughly enjoy reading your cultural/political/missiological insights.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww Thank you! I feel so honored. This means alot.<3 I have heard this somewhere, "to write well, you have to write what you know." Isn't that the truth?

Humble wife said...

Thank you Rita...web cam??? LOL... Must confess that the fear of whatever has been put on my web cam teen...

As sometimes I may wander in my pj's/ to think that I could probably hear laughter in Paraguay if one were to see me!!! To die for sure!!!

Thanks again for making the blog thing a fun thing. Love the Jungle Hut are an example to us all.
