Connecting You to Tribal Missions in Papua New Guinea

Movie, Popcorn, and Spears???

Posted by Chris and Sarah Cooke on Jun 21st, 2013 in Uncategorized | 3 Comments »

With a very sick patient needing IV fluids and extra care, Chris was working late in the clinic one night this week.  It was around 8pm and the girls were already asleep so I decided to snuggle up in front of the tv and watch the original Karate Kid.  A classic:)  About 15 minutes into the movie, I get a call from a neighbor telling me that one of our security guards is enjoying the film with me!  Sure enough, I look out the window behind me and there on the path in front of our home stands one of our guards, a national gentleman, with bow, arrows, and spears in hand, watching the movie with me.  LOL!  Shortly after the phone call, Chris came home and when I told him about it, he suggested that we take him out some popcorn!  We sat down and continued to watch the movie and he stood out there the entire time watching it with us.  A few times, I  reminded Chris to turn this way or that so as to avoid blocking our friends view:) When the credits finally rolled at the end, he just turned down the lane and went about his night.  I wonder what he thought of our home country by the glimpses of it he saw in the movie?  Strange Americans:)
