Ask the MK... Thursday Edition

May I have your MK attention for this MK moment?
I have another question for you!

MK Spirit Week,
we here at the BMW Blog have decided to ask MKs some questions. And the fun part? They may also be rewarded for taking the time to share their answers!

Two randomly selected MKs who respond will receive a $10 Amazon electronic gift card.

So here's today's question:

Can you pat your tummy, rub your head, and chew gum at the same time?

(Go ahead. Try it! Let us know if you are successful!)


Please leave your answer in a comment below, and include your name, age, and country or region of service.

Sponsors for today's gift cards:

The Bingham Family
(Thank you for loving on our MKs!)


To be eligible to win the gift card, we must be able to verify you are in fact a bona fide, true, honest, for real Baptist Missionary Woman's missionary kid, currently living with your parents either on the field, on deputation, or on a temporary furlough.

The deadline to respond is Saturday, March 12th.

The winners will be announced March 14th right here on the blog.

There are a few of us who lack the coordination to perform such amazing feats... I am among them.

Michaela W., Southern Asia, (12)
It was easy. :-)

Gabriel W., Southern Asia (9)
The stuff you made us do was very easy, but what you should have made us do is pat our gum, rub our heads, and chew our bellies. ;-)
