I've been tagged!!

UH-OH. I was tagged by my on-line friend, Lou http://www.puderbaughfamily.blogspot.com/ She is also in the process of adopting a little sweetie from Ukraine. She is hoping to travel in November--as in THIS month--and I happen to know her family could still use some donations towards their adoption. Please follow the links on her blog to see how you can help her bring home her precious daughter who is especially cute and has some special needs as well.

Here are the rules of the TAG game: (1) Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog; (2) Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself; (3) Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs; (4) Let each person know that they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

Let's see, 7 facts about me?

1. I'm a preacher's kid. My Daddy has been a minister with the Assemblies of God in Southern Idaho for close to 50 years. Even though he is now 72 (and supposedly retired) he and my Mom are serving as interim pastors in a church which they originally pastored back when I was a pre-schooler. Our family is planning on attending that church's 50th anniversary this next Sunday.

2. The first memory verse I remember from Sunday School was "Here I am, send me" from Isaiah 6:8.

3. I have an Associate of Science degree in Registered Nursing from the College of Southern Idaho (but my nursing license is lapsed) and my Bachelor's degree is in Missions from Northwest College (now University) in Kirkland, Washington.

4. Before I was married I got to participate in 3 short-term missions projects: a summer as an RN at an American Indian Nursing Home in Laveen, Arizona; a year as a resident assistant at a home for unwed mothers in Vienno, OH; and a year as a bookkeeper for long-term missionaries in Kingston, Jamaica

5. My heroes are people like Mark Buntain, missionary to Calcutta, India, and Lillian Trasher, single missionary to Egypt who started a children's home.

6. I love to do Cross Sums and Kakuro (sp?) puzzles

7. I never iron if I can help it

OK, now to tag 7 of my on-line friends

Kelly B. at http://www.ourukrainianjourney.blogspot.com/ who has 3 handsome boys from Ukraine at her house

Karen at http://www.findinghiddentreasures.blogspot.com/ who just came home with 2 little girlies from Ukraine

Bethany at http://www.dreamingonanangel.blogspot.com/ who is getting reading to travel this week

Kathy at http://johnsonsadoption.blogspot.com/ We met at the embassy the day we got our visas for our kiddos and ended up traveling to the US on the same plane!

Lots of my friends at http://www.reecesrainbow.blogspot.com/ a site where you can read some very interesting adoption stories. I know this is kind of cheating but I didn't want to re-tag my friends like Kris, Meredith, Shelley, Charissa and Sheila whom I'm sure have already been tagged.

Thanks for tagging me. I wrote 7 random things about myself. I liked reading yours and the other ladies.

Kelly B., if you read this, I still can't get back on your blog :o( I'm so far behind I have no idea what's going on with the boys! I know Viktor is home and was going to summer camp, but that was the last I knew. Please send me an invite again? junebuga@hotmail.com
