Life as a Missionary Kid in Mexico

Standard

Hey guys! Hattush from Daughter of the Light interviewed me for a guest post on her blog. ๐Ÿ˜€ She asked a lot of great questions, especially about our family’s life and ministry here in Mexico. ๐Ÿ™‚ Even though this was originally written for her blog, I thought I’d share it with you as well! ๐Ÿ˜€


 

  • Why did your family decide to go into missions?

 

Well, my momโ€™s parents were missionaries in Mexico when she was a girl, and my dad worked with my grandpa before he was married. My parents married in Mexico, and when I was 2 we moved to the States. My Dad wanted to get more training and church experience before going back to plant a church. And 4 and a half years ago, we did! ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Marr family, January 2019

 

  • Whatโ€™s one of the funniest things that happened to you in Mexico?

 

I honestly have no idea about this question.ย  Ok, one funny/embarrassing thing that happened to meโ€ฆ Once when we first moved here, I was buying tortillas and asked for โ€œflourโ€ tortillas, but instead of using the word for flour, I accidentally used the word for umโ€ฆ.. Urine. XD The lady was laughing and laughing, and I never knew until I told Dad about it!

 

 

  • What was the hardest to adjust to?

 

  1. The lack of Christian fellowship. This is something I really took for granted when we lived in the US.ย 
  2. Language! Moving to a country where you know almost nothing of the language was pretty rough. Almost 5 years later, Iโ€™m not as fluent as I would have hoped, but at least I can communicate some.ย 

 

 

  • Do you miss the US?

 

Yes, I do, very much. However, it has gotten easier as the years have gone by. Iโ€™m really learning to trust God with where He has placed me. I still miss my friends a lot, but the Lord is teaching me to be content.ย 

 

 

  • Whatโ€™s the hardest thing about being a missionary kid?

 

Maybe the fact that most of my relationships are online-based since most of my friends live in the US, or other parts of Mexico.ย 

Rosy (17)

 

  • What is the most rewarding?

 

Just being right where God has placed us. Also, I love seeing God working in other peopleโ€™s lives.ย 

 

 

  • What are your favorite things to do when you want to relax? ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Definitely doing art! Thereโ€™s almost never a time when I donโ€™t have some project or another going on! Next to that, it would be reading.

 

  • What is your favorite time of year?

 

Thatโ€™s a hard one. XD There are pros and cons to every time of year. I love the summer. However in the summer electricity and internet are out almost more than theyโ€™re on, because of the rainy season. In the winter, at least we have electricity, but itโ€™s SO cold, and I canโ€™t say I really love the cold. All in all, I guess Iโ€™d have to say Summer because I love rain and thunder, even with the lack of internet. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

 

 

  • What is the climate like?

 

Well, I sort of touched on this in the last question. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Spring is actually the hottest time of year, though it rarely even hits 100 degrees which is super nice, especially after living in Phoenix, Arizona! (Where it gets to 120…) XD Summer is fun because it rains a lot and everything gets super green, which I totally love.ย  Fall is just fall, and then in Winter it gets SUPER cold (at least for us, after living in AZ). It snows, although not much, and one of the sad things about Winter is that I always have to wear shoesโ€ฆ XDย 

 

 

  • What is something you want to say to other missionary kids?

 

I know it may be hard, but donโ€™t get discouraged! It will get easier. When I accepted living here and surrendered to God, I was a lot happier with my life. Even though itโ€™s still hard sometimes, and I miss my friends, Iโ€™m happy.ย 

 

  • Whatโ€™s a fun fact that not many people know about you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

ย ย ย My sister Gracie and I are less than a year apart, and we are the same age for 12 days! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

2019-11-12-9

Gracie and I, 2019


Thanks for those awesome questions, Hattush! โค I really enjoyed answering them. (Love you!)

Hope you guys enjoyed reading a little bit about our life here, as missionaries in Mexico! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

March Recap

Standard

March was a long month… A lot of crazy stuff happened, as I’m sure you know! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It wasn’t a bad month though. A lot of good things happened too! And I haven’t been bored even the tiniest little bit either…ย  XD

when-you-find-out-your-nomal-daily-lifestyle-is-called-quarantine-meme

Yup. XDย 

But yeah, boredom isn’t a thing for me. Life has been mostly normal for me personally, except for church. (So sad!!!)

2020-04-06 (1)

Gracie and I have a goal to walk 100 miles this Spring! ๐Ÿ˜€ย

2020-04-06

Mom had her 40th birthday this month! ๐Ÿ˜€

I organized bookshelves a couple days ago… Whew, that was quite a job! Lol! ;Pย 

I have also been doing a lot of art lately, and started learning to draw people, which has been lots of fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

2020-04-06 (1)

I drew this picture of my friend, Kyra! ๐Ÿ˜€

I also painted my sketchbook cover, and even though it could be better, I love how it turned out! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

Sketchbook

Another exciting thing that happened this month was our church’s 4th anniversary! Well, technically it was last month, but we celebrated it this month, right before the quarantine started. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here is our church picture (minus a couple families). ๐Ÿ˜‰

2020-04-06 (4)

So yeah. It’s been a pretty good month for me, despite all the crazy stuff that’s been going on. ๐Ÿ˜€

And, I shall end this post, with this very deep and thought-provoking meme. (JK) XD

2020-04-06 (7)

Have fun at home, ya’ll!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

~Rosy

P.S. I just realized I should do a post with the ultimate list of boredom busters and stuff. I never truly get bored, but I always love reading those anyway and trying out the ideas. What do y’all think? ๐Ÿ™‚ย

Our Trip to Coahuila

Standard

*Note: Don’t read, unless you love pictures. There’s gonna be a lot on this post!*

On Monday, December 23, my family bundled up in the cold to drive to my grandparent’s house, in Coahuila, Mexico. We stopped for lunch in Torreon, Coahuila at a restaurant called Pizzaria La Sierra.

What I’ve Been Doing Lately…

Standard

Lately, we have been pretty busy (as always!) Freezer meals, company, organizing, cleaning… ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are some of the things I have been up to lately. ๐Ÿ™‚

2019-11-05-5

Birthdays

We have three birthdays in November birthdays! Gracie turned 15 on the 10th, Philip turned 6 on the 11th, and I’m going to turn 16 on the 22nd! ๐Ÿ™‚

For Gracie’s birthday, I made her some healthy, homemade Oreos. (YUM.) Man, that was SO much fun, guys! I made several different flavors… Normal, peppermint, lemon, strawberry, chocolate, peanut butter, birthday cake, caramel…ย ๐Ÿ˜„ย They were super yummy (I barely managed not to eat all of them) and pretty, and so much fun to make!

Gracie and I get to be the same age for a few days! ๐Ÿ˜€

2019-11-12-9

Haircut

Last week I suddenly got this urge to cut my hair. I wanted something different! XD

Before and after…

2019-11-12-1

I really like it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Painting

I’ve started really getting into acrylic painting in the last few weeks. It’s so much fun!!! I only had a tiny bit of dollar store paint (which I mostly finished), but I want to order some more from Amazon or something. ๐Ÿ™‚

My first painting:

2019-09-09

I LOVE how this turned out!! โค

My second painting:ย 

2019-10-12

I did this one of a cute, tiny canvas my friend, Susie, gave me as an early birthday present. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

My fourth, and last painting (So far!):ย 

2019-11-12-7

I painted it on a piece of cardboard because I didn’t have any canvas… XD

2019-11-12-8

This one didn’t turn outย quiteย as I’d liked, mostly because I ran out of white after doing that light blue sky… But I still like it!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s very Fall-y. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Other Stuff

  • I finally got rid of my old school book collection… XD It took me two years collect all those… LOL!

2019-11-12-3

  • James is my babyyy!! *massive heart eyes* (He’s growing about way too fast. XD ) Lol.
  • We have been having fun with Anna Bagwell (Maggie’s cousin). Here she is playing a game with some of the kids. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our Trip to AZ!

Standard

Hi everyone! Yes, I am still alive over here… XD Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. I guess I just realized that (believe it or not…) there are more important things in life than blogging. (Surprise!) Ok, well I guess I already knew that, but… Lol.ย Anyway, I still very much love blogging, so…! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last week we traveled to Arizona to visit our friends and home church there. It was probably one of my favorite trips to AZ since we moved to Mexico! It was great to see all of our friends there again. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was so thankful for the Christian fellowship with other believers. โค

A Rambling Post

Standard

Hello people! I have nothing else to do at the moment, and it’s been 5 days since I’ve posted, so… I’m sitting here. Typing this. For you. To read. ;P ๐Ÿ˜…

Please forgive any strangeness in this post, because I am tired. Like, tired. That might have something to do with 1) I went to bed pretty late last night. 2) I am potty training my brother James, starting today. (I’m practicing to be a mother someday y’all!) Lol.

So yeah, today has been a whirlwind. And he actually made it to the toilet like, one whole time! (I won’t mention the other dozen or so times…) Lol. But, he’s making progress! Slowly, but surely. ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  โค

2019-07-30

In other news…. Oh, I should totally tell you about last Sunday! It was a great time!

So, we had our first Domingo Largo (Long Sunday) on the 28th. We started at about 11:00 in the morning. Dad preached a sermon, then everyone ate lunch together. After that, we played lots of volleyball, which was fun! Then Heber, (a man in our church) preached another message. After that, we played more volleyball, then some soccer. We had a great time visiting too. โค It was a wonderful day! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, I’ll upload some pictures for ya. Just a second… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ok, here. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, I have to go soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ First, here’s a song that I’ve been enjoying lately. (I’m actually listening to it right now, but by the time you see this, I probably won’t be…) ๐Ÿ˜‚

Also, I read this verse in my Bible a couple days ago, and it has been on my mind ever since. How encouraging!

Ok, gotta go! Thanks for reading my late night ramblings people! (And excuse any typos…)

Birthday, Baptism, and Border Trip. (And More!)

Standard

Hi everyone! I have a big long post for you today, so beware. ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD

Hey, I just realized I could call this post The Three B’s for short… XD ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜œ

Anyway…! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

We had a really busy and exciting two weeks during my media fast. One of the first things that happened was the birthday party of my friend, Karen. She turned 15. In Mexico, when a girl turns 15 she’s basically considered an adult and eligible for marriage. (Wow, that’s crazy isn’t it??? I can’t even imagine… XD) Anyway, she asked me to take pictures at the party for her. Which I did, and enjoyed doing! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are a few of them… ๐Ÿ™‚

There was also a piรฑata for the kids, although the adults joined in some too. I did not get any good picture of that since it was night, but here’s something from my Dad’s phone… Terrible picture, but it’ll do… ๐Ÿ˜‰

20190427_210456


And, in other, really exciting news, we had our first baptism at the church we’re planting here in Mexico!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a man named Alejandro (Alexander), and it’s been so awesome to see God working in his, and his wife’s, life. Praise the Lord!!! He is so good.

Here’s a slideshow I put together with the pictures I took during church last Sunday, the Baptism, and the meal afterwards. (Not to mention the water fight that was bound to happen when you have kids and young adults standing around with nothing much else to do… XD ) It was a great time. ๐Ÿ˜€


The day before yesterday my Dad, Philip, Bekah and I took a trip up to the El Paso, Texas to get our mail, and get some supplies. This time we planned on making it there and back in one day! ๐Ÿ˜€ Usually we have to stay a night in a hotel.

We got up at 3:00 and left at 3:30 am. We drove for a few hours until we got to a small town to get breakfast. We got food for all four of us, for the equivalent of $3.50 US dollars. We had to laugh about how much food for us all would have costed in the States, and how different Mexico and the States are from eachother! XD

We reached the border by around… 9:00 am I think. We crossed uneventfully, and drove to El Paso which was nearby the border crossing. We couldn’t go to Costco yet, since it opens at ten, so we went to Goodwill, where we bought… Nothing! Then we went to Savers, where we bought… Nothing! XD ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ;P After that, we went to Walmart, and a few other places. We ate lunch at Costco. Well, actually we got lunch at Costco, brought it to the car and ate it there! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then we did a few other things, including picking up our mail, then heading across the border again. We were home by 9:30 that night! We were so tired… XD

Ohhhhh!!!!! There’s one thing Iย haveย to tell you guys!!! First you have to guess…

What, you don’t like to guess?

Ok, fine. ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD

We’re going… SOUTH!!! YES! To Alabama and Georgia… I am so excited!!! It’s mainly for a family reunion, since my Mom has lots of family there. We’re also going to get to see some friends for the first time. (I’m especially excited to finally get to meet my friend, Amie, from Crazy A!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Anyway, it’s still almost a month until we leave. I think we leave on the 3rd or 4th of June… Something like that. ๐Ÿ™‚ We are all waaay excited!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Before I leave, here is a really good quote I found recently. It really made me think.

Have you read any of the books I mentioned in this post? What do you think about the quote? Do you like longer, or shorter posts the best? (Or medium sized???) ๐Ÿ˜‰ย
