We recently had Josiah share some of his thoughts about living in Argentina as a ¨Missionary Kid¨or ¨MK.¨ If you haven’t read it, check it out here.
Here is the second part of this blog from the perspectives of Jackson (age 8) and Isaac (age 6). We asked them similar questions and then wrote down their responses.
Thanks for loving on and caring for our kids! Enjoy!

Always a joy to hear the perspective of your boys @ living in Argentina.
We finally have Don’s mom (96) in asst. living here in Mt. Vernon—-the 31/2 years of going to Tacoma every 2 weeks is over! Please pray for her salvation & sale of her home. Also for Betty who ruptured her achilles tendon & had a complicated surgical repair a week ago, Wheel chair for a month.
Don & Betty
