I’m not sure when I had Indian food for the first time.  I do remember an amazing Indian food restaurant that Abe and I loved to go to when we were newly married.  We both enjoy the rich tastes and unique spices of Indian food.  Here in HK there is a fairly large population of … Continue reading

language learning

We have been here over 1 year and I’m sad to say that I don’t know more Cantonese. There are lots of reasons I haven’t learned very much, on the top of the list would be: I was busy with a newborn, homeschooling and adjusting to life over seas. Another reason we haven’t been forced … Continue reading

This Easter was our second here in HK but our first at our little church in Tuen Mun. It was special to celebrate our Savior with believers here.
