Ever needed a reminder of where you where before to realize just how far you have come? Often when it comes to studying the language here I look at how much more I have to learn which can seem daunting sometimes and make it hard to see progress. In these past few weeks however I have been reminded of just how far I have come. Last week I met with a friend of mine and we talked completely in the local language. We didn’t talk for long but I was able to share about of my faith and to connect with him, it was fun and exciting. When I can here to study I couldn’t do that I always shared in English about my faith. It was a really encouraging reminder of the fruits of my studying and I hope to meet with him again soon.
