Growing up in the

This week’s post takes us to the Philippines with Tina’s family!

Tina’s crew hasn’t always made their home in Philippines – in fact their family has worked as missionaries – but today they are sharing with us why they LOVE calling the Philippines home, and a special reason why their kids enjoy life there.

So read on to learn a few common Tagalog phrases, get a few ideas for an authentic Filipino dinner, and gaze at Tina’s family’s beautiful beach photos!

Speaking of family photos … Have you got any great ones to share that highlight the place you call home? I hope you consider adding them to your family’s upcoming post!

Growing up in the United Arab Emirates

GROWING UP IN

When Jennifer Hansen and her family wrote this piece for Middle East week just a little while ago, her family was settled and loving their life in Abu Dhabi.

But suddenly their circumstances changed.

Still, the Hansens have been kind enough to share gorgeous family photos taken in the Arabian desert as well as tons of wonderful information about the diversity of the United Arab Emirates.

So join us in wishing Jen and her family well in their next steps, and get ready to learn lots of facts about their time in a land of both exciting advancements and deep cultural history.

Maybe they’ll give you some ideas about your family’s upcoming post?!
