Interview with Ezekiel

To get a different perspective on our upcoming adventure, I interviewed each of the kids. (Some of them are more verbose than others.) I’ll be posting the interviews throughout the week.

Ezekiel is 10 years old and just finished fourth grade.

What are some of your favorite things?
COOOOOOOKIES!! (Interviewer’s note: His sister had just baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies earlier that day, and had then been forced to hide the container so that they wouldn’t all “disappear”!) Playing basketball. Tickling Isaiah, Hosanna, and Naomi.

Do you know what you want to do when you grow up?
Artistic things.

What did you think when your parents first started to talk about possibly becoming missionaries?
Hot. AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH! I do not LIKE the heat!

What are you looking forward to when you move to the Philippines?
Mangoes and buko juice. Trying out the Outland Adventure ropes course and the zip line.

Is there anything about moving that you’re worried or scared about?
HOT. (Interviewer’s note: Average high temperatures in Davao city are between 88°F and 90°F and is rarely above 93°F. Earlier this month we had a heat wave here in Ohio with daily highs above 100 for almost a week – we even saw 110 on our thermometer once. I think he’ll survive.)

    Ezekiel, I don’t like heat either. I just came back from that part of the world (Bangkok). i sweated a lot, but I think that you can get used to it.

    I didn’t know you wanted to do artistic things when you grow up. I like to do artistic things too with you! I don’t like the heat either but maybe you can go swimming a lot on all the lovely beaches
