friends, life 360 and surprises

Lets go back a few weeks, to our service in York, SC, Cornerstone Family Worship Center. On a way to that service, we picked up our friends, Emily and Hannah. Hannah is my friend, and Emily is Maggi's friend, they are sisters. They had going away gifts for us. Hannah gave me a cupcake necklace. They helped us pass out prayer cards for that service. I had fun taking friends along.

Last week, I went to a church here in Springfield, called Life 360.

Maggi wasn't with me because she was MK camp MuKappa. It was a missionary service to welcome the new missionaries. When we first got there I got to eat a doughnut.

Then I sat with my friend Melia. We went to children's church and I learned about three different countries, Mexico, Cambodia, and Ethiopia.

When we entered the sanctuary I was holding the Costa Rica flag for the mission's parade. Once we got to the front, there was music, lights, and LOTS OF CONFETTI! I felt very welcomed.

On stage, they had gifts for the missionaries. My family received a flip video, and I got a camera.

Both Churches were blessings.

Love you and see you again soon,

MuKappa Drama

Hi! People of earth!

Sorry I havent been to you latley. I have been at muKappa.

MuKappa is the country of Mks. It is a secure secret place, deep insid the woods of Missouri. To get there we were blindfolded while we rode on the bus. Once there we walked through a little river with our "bags". That was the border of MuKappa. We had to pack all of belongings in trash bags.

At the border, we went through security, that is where they check through your bags.

They didn't check mine because I had a diplomatic passport. Some people brought in countraband, such as candy, snacks, flashlight, tooth paste, toothbrush, etc. If they caught you it was chopped up with machete!

We had to make our camp. We slept in hamocks under a tarp! It rained one night but I did not get wet. We had a lot of fun. I saw 2 snakes! We ate food cooked over a fire. We used the restroom in something called a litrine. Its a hole behined a tarp!

We were in groups otherwise known as tribes, my cheif's name was Cheif Big Blue.

We bathed in the river. It was a little chilly.

There was a family night, when our families got to come.

They had to go through security too. Dad smuggled in 2 bags of jolly ranchers, and sour patch kids, mom brought candy jewlery she called her special jewlrey from the Congo, and Emma smuggled in 2 packets of lemonade, in the cuffs of pants.

After they left, we had smores by the fire. The next day we were suprised with a trip to water park. It was a nice break, becasue we got to use a real toilet!

The first thing I did when I got home was lunch with the family, and then a long bubble bath. My sister made a great welcome home banner, she missed me alot!

I had a great time at MuKappa.

Tripo to DC


This is Maggi. Sorry I haven’t reported in a while. The church we were at this week was in Maryland, close to Washington D.C. The pastor and his wife had two boys, Noah and Caleb who were Emmas and my ages. The night before the service we met them for dinner. We had tappas before dinner. After dinner Mrs. Moriah, Pastor Darrell's wife suggested we go to the Fractured Prune for dessert. They specialize in made to order doughnuts. I got a Rollo Doughnut, Sissy got a peanut butter. They were delicioso. We had a great time in Washington D.C., but now we had to get serious for church.

The church we were at had a great children’s church. I sang my song and Daddy preached. I would like to thank the church for letting us stay at a fancy hotel with bullet elevators.

And I would like to thank the man who donated all the eyeglasses. We really appreciated it, and I got to give the box of eye glassess to the Healthcare Ministries Coordinator. She was so excited about receiving such a generous gift. I was able to give it to her while in Springfield, MO. It was a great trip.


Hi, Emma here. Sorry I haven’t got to you guys for a while. Life has been a rollercoaster lately. Let me go back a few weeks and tell you about our service in Lancaster South Carolina. Our GPS named Gabby took us to the pastors instead of the church that morning because daddy gave her the wrong address. At last, we finally found the church though. Gabby will say "recalculating" when we are lost. At Harvesttime Assembly of God I met some new friends

After the service, the church fed us a great lunch. Harvesttime Assembly of God was a very inspiring Church.

Then we went to the Wofford house church. At the house we fed the cows. I threw their food on their head.

At the Wofford’s house they fed us dinner they fed us sandwiches and peanut butter brownies, yum! How did they know I loved peanut butter.
That’s all for now.

Your friend and future missionary,
Emma Cartwright
