Do You Live Outside the United States?
I was just looking over some MMI site stats and was amazed at where some of our traffic comes from. Of course, the majority of our visitors are from the United States... but we also have quite a number of international users. For example, in March, we had 752 individual users from Canada; 375 from the UK; 221 from Australia; 49 from New Zealand; 29 from South Africa; and 35 from India. We even had one visitor from Iceland! :)
I thought it would be kind of fun to hear from our international users. If you're reading this from somewhere outside the US, please take a moment to introduce yourself. Tell us your name; where you're from; what the temperature is where you at; and anything else about yourself that we might find interesting.
(This will either be really fun or flop bigtime!) :)

Minnesota. BUT grew up as a missionary kid in France. I was born there and went to public schools there until college (good luck to you Jessica!). Does that count?

Hello from Wellington, New Zealand. My name is Jonathan, long time reader, first time commentator!
Really enjoy the discussions, and all the comments. Currently 18 degrees celsius (64 farenheit) blue skies, and a cool breeze.
I currently volunteer in my church running an Alpha Course (www.alpha.org) and leading our Sunday School / Childrens Church (or whatever you call it!) ministry with my wife.

Todd, If it's alright with you I'd like to say hello, to Keith, Donnie, and Jonathan. This is pretty cool meeting people around the globe.... I can't wait until September this year, I am going with my church to Africa. I have always wanted to visit there.
Anyway.... Nice to meet you all on MMI.. I look forward to the day we all meet in heaven face to face....
Clare, If you'd like you can email me about women pastor's... I would like to TALK about it not ARGUE....

Rick from Germany - however I'm moving to Ohio in 10 weeks. But for now, I really am international and not faking it like many of your other commenters.
The temperature right now is 6 degrees Celsius and it is not a lovely day here - well, in terms of weather that is.

This is cool seeing people comment from all over, how neat. Daniel, thanks for the well wishes, your prayers are appreciated. My husband is an MK from France so in a way it feels like we're getting ready to go home for him. We will be starting a faith based community arts center and serving in local churches.
It was 92+ in Houston today with rolling blackouts around the city yesterday and today!
