…only two more modules to go! Our time is flying by! We are getting more and more anxious to put all this material into practice. Hopefully, God will supply the rest of our support and we will be on the field soon so we don’t forget this stuff before go! 🙂
Tomorrow ends our Second Language Acquisition course. Tonight, we’re having a cookout with everyone here (in fact, I really should be there right now – so this is going to be short!). We’re awfully sad since tomorrow we’ll be saying goodbye to four more friends who aren’t staying for the other modules. It’s hard to say goodbye! We’ve definitely learned that missionaries rarely get to stay around their friends for long. It’s been wonderful being here and relating to people in similar circumstances; but it’s hard to see them go because we’re not sure when/if we’ll see them again. One is leaving for Romania very soon; a couple others are going to North Africa as soon as they finish getting their support; another is heading to Namibia within April. It’s not like there’s a meeting place in between these countries where we can all go for coffee once a week! However, there is the hope of that old, kind of funny saying… “See ya here, there, or in the air!” God has blessed us with wonderful friends…and with living during the internet era so we’ll always be in touch, no matter where we go.
Tomorrow, we are leaving for South Carolina for the weekend! Some of you my know my good friend Tim Smith. He is a guy I graduated high school with and he and his wife live in the Greenville, South Carolina, area, so we are spending the weekend with them! We’re very excited; it’ll be nice to get away and get refreshed before plowing into our next course.
We’ll be back at CIT Sunday afternoon. Our “Sharpening Your Interpersonal Skills” course actually begins Sunday evening. I should add a disclaimer… we THINK we’re going through SYIS this week, but there’s a chance we could be wrong. It might be “Teams and Team Leaders.” For some reason, we’re all very confused about this! So, I’ll let you know what our next module is! 🙂
Thank you for your prayers. We shall keep you posted! We’ll have new pictures up next week. Have a wonderful weekend!
