We received some wonderful news last week that we wanted to share. Many of you have been praying for our work permits to be approved. We are thrilled to say that this prayer has been answered! Thank you so much for lifting this us to our Heavenly Father. The process of our crate being released from the US and starting the long journey here by sea will take place soon!
We also wanted to thank you for praying for our language acquisition. We have been studying Chewa for close to 2 months now. The method we are using has had us only listening to the language. The language teacher we have is very good and patient, which is great! She says the words in Chewa and then either points to a picture or acts out what she is doing without using any English. It's an intriguing method that seems to be working very well. This past week we began speaking the language! It's great to be able to hold a 'small' conversation with someone now. We have realized that we can figure out some of what is being said to us but making our mouths repeat this can be very challenging! Please continue to pray for our ears to hear things correctly, our mouths to be able to pronounce the words, and our minds to have good recall of what we have studied.
