This past weekend we attended the missions conference at our church. As a follow-up for the kids I thought they would have fun with a little bit of related school. Their assignments today were to choose a country where they might be interested in going if they were to be a missionary. They wrote a short paper about the country they chose and why they choose it and how they might be a missionary there. Then they had to draw a simple map of the country and research and write a few facts they learned about the country of their choice. Then they had to choose a recipe to try from that country. Then Kent, Katy, and Kaomi got to write a letter to a missionary in the country they chose and introduce themselves and ask any questions they had about being a missionary in that country.
So now I have a menu planned for the next few days. Here are the foods that we will be preparing. Tomorrow we will be heading to the grocery store to buy any ingredients we don't have on hand. Each person has their own shopping list. Since we already had the food that Katy chose she will get to shop for the items needed to make the Indian Fried Rice which Jeff chose.
