I feel I should talk slowly to you so that you will understand my english 🙂
So Today not much happening in my world.. one of the things that comes with living in Nep. … strikes.. that just means people barricade the road, stores are closed and their is no public transportation. There was a strike today– so I stayed home and tried to study from my first language lesson. I am just now posting because for most of the night we have not had any electricity.. heheh.. it’s ok.. i feel like a real “m” when I am reading by one candle.. felt even more like one as I took another bucket bath and shaved my legs in the dark. now that is HARD core! I will meet with the friend that I was supposed to meet with tonight on Friday night.
So you may be wondering about the lost thing. Well you know those awesome tailor made clothes that i had made.. hehe.. well I tried to go find that tailor yesterday. I didn’t think it would be to hard. I told the taxi driver the name of the the choke to take me (that’s a circle roundabout thing in the road) and he took me.. and then nothing looked familiar.. so after wondering around for a while.. singing some praise songs (tryjng to put on a spirit of praise) I finally found my way to another section of town where i was meeting some girlfriends for a girls lunch at a semi-coffee shop. At least I found them.. my clothes.. hmm.. i’ll keep you updated on that!
Yesterday I had my first language lesson. I loved it. My teacher is the cutest old nepal. Man and he is just an awesome teacher. He will be teaching me 2 hours a day 5 days a week and when i am not in language class i will be studying. hehehe.. he kept asking me questions like how do you conjugate this verb (in english mind you). I realized I don’t remember anything about english grammer. so I may have to study that to.. hehhee.. it was like being in kindergarden again trying to learn to read and write. I am learning the script as I learn to speak.. and it looks like arabic.. So I was doing what you do when you learn to write.. writing large and not to nice but writing over and over the vowels and consonents. I figure if I could do it when i was little I can do it again. My teacher is hindu, so I hope to share Christ with him.
Please pray for my language ability to come quickly (ma nepalma chito chito sickchu ) because I am a relationship person and I love to communicate and talk and I can only have the same conversation over and over with people here. 🙂
well thanks for praying for me. God is meeting me in a way here that I would never have imagined or needed. It’s funny how much more you talk to God when he’s the only one aroudn you that can understand what you are saying.
