While our plan is to engage in more formal language study through immersion, Pam has been taking private Spanish tutoring through a local language academy in El Paso in the meantime. One highlight is that Pam’s teacher, Irma, has recently begun attending a home-church group we’ve been participating with through El Paso 1st Church of the Nazarene. Irma has become a dear friend to Pam, so this is an extra blessing!
Another highlight for Pam was to spend a week in Chihuahua, Mexico attending a district wide conference/assembly with several of our pastors and church leaders from northern Mexico. We are so anxious to get a better grasp on the language of our neighbors and our church leaders. Please join us in prayer that the doors will open and that the necessary funds will be available for our family to receive formal language instruction soon.
We are tentatively planning to be in Guadalajara, Mexico for 4-5 weeks of intensive language study this summer -- keep us in your prayers!
