Merry Mission Journal

Hi everyone,

It’s a comedy.

This is Brooke. I wanted to write and tell everyone that I am doing fine and that I have not gotten eaten by any wild animal yet. I’m starting to enjoy school now that I’ve been there for about 3 weeks.

But I’m not starting to warm up to the uniforms we have to wear (and no, there will not be any pictures of Heather or me in our uniforms). Everything is different here - from the color of people’s skin to the way they spell color (colour).

The sports here are different too. My two favorite sports here are net ball (which is kind of like basketball) and cricket. I play both for our house.

I have met a lot of people here. My two good friends here are Aukje Schaafsma, a Dutch missionary that has been here for 5 years so far and Emma Soye, an Irish missionary here for 4 years.

Well that’s all for now but I will give you more information about what is going on with me when more happens.

Brooke Merry
