I have always beleived a little friendly competition is a good thing.  When the competition is between two sisters who are striving to make the best Amerian style burritos for their guests from America, it is a great thing.   Yes, Emma and I think of mexican food as our love language.  Ginger Crocker, a missionary in Singapore, found out that mexican cuisine is our comfort food.  So she prepared a made-from-scratch mexican feista meal fit for any Mexican.  It was great.  When Joy Speight, a missionary in Phuket, Thailand, found out how much we enjoyed that meal, she determined to make us burritos when we arrive a week later at her home.  The trouble was she wanted to know whose was better.  That’s what little sisters do.  They always try to out do their big sister.  

Yes, Ginger and Joy are sisters. How cool is it to think about two sisters both serving with their husbands as BBFI missionaries in southeast asia?  But the irony doesn’t stop there.  They have another sister who, with her husband, is a missionary in China.  How were all three of these ladies influenced to serve the Lord as missionaries in Asia?  It might be because fifty years ago they came over to Korea with their parents, Worth and Hazel Worley, and were raised as missionary kids on the field.  There are many challenges to being a missionary kid, but there are also many blessings and priviledges to being raised on a foreign field.  God has used the expereince of growing up in Korea to prepare all three of the Worley’s daughters for continued missionary service.  Ginger and Joy are excellent helpers to their husbands, are multi-lingual, create very comfortable homes for their families and know how to raise children on foreign soil.  It has been a joy to observe the fruit of Worth and Hazel’s faithful parenting, and it has been our great delight to expereince both Ginger’s and Joy’s expertise in the kitchen.  YUM!  Thanks so much ladies for the comfort food.  It was all so good.  We’ve ruled it a tie.
