Happy Birthday Kerri

In Zambia, they have a birthday tradition. On the big day, your friends and family will sometimes surprise you during the day by splashing you with water. It is a tradition that us missionaries have really taken to heart : ).

Well, yesterday morning, Kerri woke up to go running with some of her friends. After opening the gate for them to drive in, they had a surprise. Stephanie and Elise had buckets of water waiting to welcome Kerri into her 33rd year of life.

As you can see from the pics, they had a good time wishing their good friend a happy birthday, Zambian style!

I'm very impressed that you got up to run on your birthday. Did you get a song at Mike's?

Love it! I'm definitely looking into this tradition the next time I'm in Zambia!
