On Friday morning, our class is driving down to Oklahoma to begin studying Cherokee for six weeks. We will be staying at a Cherokee-run conference center outside of Tahlequah.
Until then, we are frantically working on "Kuman". Kuman is a language from Papua New Guinea. Our goal is to discover what the Kuman think they are saying, and to discover the grammatical structures within their language. This project is due Thursday morning.
Over the past few weeks, a few viruses have been passed around campus. As our minds are exhausted and our bodies following in exhaustion, would you pray with us that the linguistics students would not get sick? Our desire is to finish strong in this assignment this week, while preparing for our 6-week move to Oklahoma.
Thank you for your prayers!
