Thank God for Congolese Friends
We are looking forward to Friday. We are meeting with our dear Congolese friends. They are translating some things for us into Lingala and we will share a meal together. When the time comes I am apparently going to be able to read it! We'll see! They are going to give us some Congolese culture lessons as well. Skip and I are a bit overwhelmed by the idea that we will ever be able to understand the culture we are headed into and know how to effectively connect with these precious children we are headed to serve. Pray that we would be great listeners on Friday (we love to talk!) and truly hear about how to connect to our friends in Congo... folks we have never met but none-the-less are are so anxiously awaiting for our arrival!
