This post is dedicated to our dear friends, the Thompsons.... especially for Titus Thompson, since I was not able to find a hedgehog for you when you were visiting us last year.
One year ago, the Thompson family came to visit us from California. During that visit they ever so graciously gave our family a Wii gaming system (from their Sunday School class "Two Committed") which included a game called "Mario and Sonic." And the character Sonic is a hedgehog.
My kids have played their Wii game on lots of occasions. What a perfect gift for a family with kids who get stuck inside for several months out of the year during the cold, winter months! [Thanks, again, Thompsons and "Two Committed" class!]
Some people have dogs for pets, some have cats. And, we have a hedgehog! Anyone else think that is a little strange?! But, hey, you work with what you've got... And on our mission field, hedgehogs just happen to be in abundance!
