Today was our church's annual Missions' Banquet, so I decided to wear my Thai outfit to morning worship. Grammy Joy bought this pantset for me when she visited Thailand in May of 2008. Joy didn't even know that Mommy was (barely) pregnant when she left for Thailand, but she did have an inkling that a baby Moss would be on the way soon. I sure am glad she acted on that inkling when she saw this outfit!
Hmm, guess we should stick with the bows for a while yet.
I did a wardrobe change for the banquet tonight. Here you have Mimi and I modeling our Mongolian finery.
These clothes came from Baby Karsyn's grandparents, who serve as missionaries in Mongolia. They gave me some Mongolian boots, too, but since my feet have grown at a much faster rate than the rest of my body they had to stay at home.
Mommy got a good laugh out of this scene. Danielle and Auntie were mixing (coffee) drinks at a church banquet!
Seriously, though, our family loves the fact that we are part of a very missions minded church. We support over 50 missionaries/missions organizations in the US and countries around the world. About 20 of those missionaries came right out of our own congregation! Every year our Missions Banquet serves as a reminder for us to support our missionary family through prayer, meet their personal and ministry needs through our financial giving, and ask God how we can further partner with them in expanding His kingdom.
