It would be unusual to get to speak to your missionary on their birthday but as Gareth's fell on American mothers day we got to spend a little of his 19th with him. We even had him blow out his candles!
It was a special day as both sets of Grandparents were able to be with us and talk to him.
The sounds of laughter coming from the dining room as these three joked about our parenting skills could be heard in the next village!
They talked of a particular day when something got broken. Quotes such as "don't play with things that aren't toys" and "That was a special gift!" could be heard as they joked that the said special gift looked like a charity shop reject!
