~A conversation from missions conference (translated to English for your benefit 🙂
Amber: You have been in the tribe for 18 years and still don’t know the language? Wow! We have been discouraged because it has almost been 1 year and we still don’t know the language. How do you stay encouraged after so much time?
Missionary: Who said we are encouraged?
Talk about perseverance! We have a thing or two to learn from these people.
We had a good time getting to know many of the Brazilians and Americans who work in the tribes here. We wondered, “Which one of these will be our coworkers?
Language: What we need now is more vocabulary and practice talking. So we have flash cards with new words and are trying to find people who like to listen.
Isaque is doing well. He is a happy little fellow.
We all went for a swim in the Amazon river!
P.S. the Amazon is huge!!! That is a boat that should be in the ocean but it is in a river!!!
Grasping for perseverance,
