Dear Nate, Eli, Madelynne, Isaac, Gavin, Cecily, William, Andrew, Jackson, Sadie, Kate, Logan, & ?
Hello all my Super-duper kids! I wanted to tell you a little about Indonesia and the people here. First of all, the people are very, very nice! They don't have alot of things like money, and toys, and toilets, big houses. They do have happiness, and kindness, and the members LOVE to come to church. Most of the people here go to a different church called the Muslim Church. They call Heavenly Father Allah.
They eat lots of rice. Nasi Goreng is a favorite. Nasi is how they say rice. Goreng is how they say fried. They like to make their food spicey! All of the houses have Cicuks. You say that word "cheechuks". Those are little lizards. They eat mosquitoes and other bugs, so you like to have them around. They scamper here and there. They are about 2-3 inches long.
People here don't have cars. Most of them walk, take a bus, or ride motor scooters. THEY ARE CRAZY DRIVERS! They drive the English way, we would think they drive on the wrong side of the road. The children go to school just like you. When they are 10 they learn english in their classrooms and then they have 6 years of english.
Well, I will tell them all about you when we go to the town we will live in. It is called Solo. I will show them your pictures, and tell them how much I love you. Then I will take pictures of the people here and send them to you!!!
Be happy and good children!
We love you!!!!!
