From Jungle Bunny to Baseball Fan

How your life changes is always surprising. One year ago we lived in the jungle and now we are living and working in the city. Last night I took my daughter to a baseball game here in Barquisimeto. I am working with Baseball Chapel in the minor leagues here in Venezuela and running Bible studies with the players of the Cardenales de Lara. My youngest daughter, Jayde, enjoys going to the games, although after 10 years in the jungle she is still not quite sure of how the game works. Whenever something happens in the game she asks me, "Was that good or bad?" "Yes", I answer, "a home run is considered good!"
Last night as we were watching the game the local TV station reporter was walking through the stands and she saw the little blond in the sea of dark hair. So much for blending in, being inconspicuous, not being noticed. Her 1 minute interview will be on TV on Monday night here in Barqui. Quite a leap for a little girl who chose to eat smoked worms instead of Chocolate chip cookies for a snack when she was 6.

Are you all going to record the t.v. interview? I would love to see it. At least share with us here in your blog some of the questions that were asked of you and Jayde???

Hi! I am Mary-Jo, I am engaged to Scott McCobb. I cam across your Blog via Jackie's.

A baseball game sounds so fun!! It took me quite sometime to learn the good and bad things that can happen in a game!! I hear Jayde is quite a kid!! I would like to meet her someday!!

You all are part of our favorite memories, too. i like the one where we newbies were trekking through the jungle to the top of the hill for a great view. of course we'd confidently follow you anywhere....After a hike through some questionably thick growth that was supposed to be a path, Jewel said, "Dad, are you lost again?" busted.... (but we'd still follow you anywhere!) m
