Missions as Futbol

My missions-minded friend Laura and her co-workers on a summer mission trip to Leipzig, Germany, have come up with a cool metaphor for European missions:

Last week as our group was all talking, feeling somewhat frustrated with the slowness we can experience in European missions, Corey made the statement that it seems like missions in Europe is much like a soccer game...

Check out Laura's blog to see how.

By the way, the Czech Republic plays the United States in their World Cup opener tomorrow at 11am (CST). I can't wait, but I have to admit I'm torn about what team to cheer for.

...No I'm not. Go Czechs!

Best Birthday Cake EVER!

My birthday was about a month ago (May 13), but I'm going to tell you about it anyway. I've been meaning to post pictures of my cake for a while now (cause it was the coolest!), and finally I have a copy or two of the cake ready for display. Drum roll please...

My BFFs Christie and Ginny make shaped birthday cakes for their friends, based on the birthday person's interests or on inside jokes or whatever. Last year my cake was in the shape of the Apple Computer logo and I loved it, but this year the girls really outdid themselves!

The cake was in the shape of the Czech Republic, with the colors of the Czech flag overlaying it (red strawberries, blue blueberries, and white marshmallows). And on a platform above the Czech Republic rested, nay, soared an Arkansas Razorback...because I'm a Razorback on the road to the Czech Republic!

Go Hogs!
