We arrived in Senegal just about on schedule. We had the immigration paperwork mailed to us ahead of time in order to have it all filled out, but alas, amid all the other things we had going on, we neglected to fill out the paperwork before landing. So…there we were in the airport, tired and […]
We wanted to be at the airport at around 6 :30 AM in order to get all of our luggage into the airport and checked in with plenty of time. My parents (in from South America), my Brother (in from Maine), my Sister (in from the Philippines), and Misty and Andy (in from Hartland, WI) were […]
We were so blessed to be able to have time with our families before departing for Africa. We spend some precious time with the our family, Jenny’s side, in North Carolina after leaving Quebec. We enjoyed so much being together and it was incredibly difficult to leave. God allowed us to coordinate a reunion with […]
We had the privilege of going to a kids club with our family at one of the churches here in the area. Thought you might enjoy some pictures of the kids enjoying kids club here in Senegal! The kids broke up into three groups. Two of the groups were taught in Wolof, a language of […]
To vaccinate or not to vaccinate, that is the question! We are almost on our way, but there are so many little and big decisions to be made along the way.
Our French language study program includes many different parts that all work together to improve our ability to communicate in French. One example is reading the Bible with a French speaking student from the Word of Life Bible School who we were paired with at the beginning of our first semester. We meet three times […]
As part of the process of learning French we go on outings where we speak only French and have local events and places explained in French. Our final outing for this semester was to a maple sugar shack.....
So, another fun vocabulary lesson in French. déguster means to taste or to relish. Hardly what comes to my mind when I see a word so close to disgusting. :)
We have some great news to share with you! We have been trusting the Lord together with you to provide for our monthly support as well as prayer support for our ministry in Senegal West Africa. Well….drum roll please! God has brought us to 100% pledged funding of our monthly support. Thank you so much […]
English and Spanish have some common roots with the French language. Jenny and I have the privilege of knowing Spanish and it has been a big help to us in being able to understand French more quickly than we might otherwise have been able to. We do have to watch out for what are called […]
Part of our French Language program is to meet with one of the students from the Word of Life Bible School that is on the same campus as the French Language program. We read the Bible in French with them for one hour per week. It was the end of the semester and Jenny was […]
So, we have wrapped up 1/2 of our first semester in French Study. We had an oral and a written test to see how we have done. We are so thankful to be able to study at the Language school at Parole De Vie Bethel. Michel Roby, our French teacher, is incredibly patient with us […]
A few weeks ago we were so excited when we checked our mail and saw that we had a package waiting for us at the Boni Soir (Canada Post outlet near us). We got coats on the family after the kids got home from school and picked up our package. Below you can see some […]
First of all, just wanna comment on how beautiful the city of Sherbrooke is. We are so blessed to be living here during our time of French study. The fall colors have been incredible so far. We have already had some snow flurries, so I suppose it is promising to be a long winter. 🙂 […]
We are so excited about some doors that God has openned for us during our time here in Quebec. We visited Rock Forest Church here in Quebec. On our first Sunday there we found out the Rock Forest Church was launching out a Church plant called Axe 21. Just a note on the name, don’t do […]
