Things Missionary Kids Say

Published by under News Updates


Our girls are now 5, 4 and almost 2. Here are some of the funny things they have said…


“Mama, what country are we in?” -Isla

“Hawaii is just as beautiful as I imagined!” -Ruby

“I miss our yellow house in Illinois because of the big trees.” -Isla

“Did we ship this or buy it? Are we going to sell our stuff again?” -Ruby

“This is the best beach eveeeeeeeeer!” -Isla

“I like cockroaches Mom. I think they’re cute!” -Ruby

“Why do the people with dark skin always say yeah?” -Ruby

“Mama, where is the end of the world?” -Isla

“We’re in the middle of the ocean?! Amazing!” -Ruby

(at the Farmer’s Market) “Its smells like kale!” -Isla

(about a gecko) “Can we keep it as a pet?” -Ruby

“No one has to even teach me how to do the hula Mom because I already know how.” -Isla

(smiling with pride) “Mom, did you hear me? I called that little girl’s daddy Uncle.” -Ruby

(after hearing about missionaries on the radio) “Mom, we’re going to tell people about Jesus TOO because we’re missionaries TOO!” -Isla

“Aloooooooha!” -Jovi

Life in Hawaii is not always paradise (kind of like being a parent.)  But when we choose to cherish precious moments with our children, life is good! Thank you for your continued prayers and support.

    Dear Tony, Colleen, and family,

    Thanks so much for your updates. I’m glad to know that you are settling in just fine and that the Lord is already using you in a special way.

    Please take care.
