...is a lot like filling up a Tonka truck with a shovel!
During the past two weeks, I have had many people ask, "How is your Spanish?" Well. My Spanish has not improved much--but my comprehension has! By learning through immersion, I am learning much like a child does. I am hearing everything, and very slowly learning the words I am hearing. Think about a child you've seen grow up; he did not speak immediately! Babies listen for around a year before beginning to speak. Thankfully, I will not have to wait that long. In the next few weeks I will begin learning more words--and their meanings--and gaining the ability to form these new sounds with my mouth. Please pray for me during this time, that I will be patient: "quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry" (James 1:19). This time can be frustrating because I don't know what is going on around me, and it is difficult to communicate. Pray that I will quickly comprehend and gain the ability to speak Spanish fluently and correctly!
