A Taste of Culture

Different Flavors

Many times people think how exciting and exotic it is to enter into another culture - and that is true.  It can be exhilerating to be learning how to live from square one in a new place full of new paradigms and challenges.

But it isn't always fun and games.  Our teachers and trainers have tried to really stretch our family to (re)experience some of these challenges in the safety and security of our classroom.  In real life, avoiding things we might consider unpleasant can have unforeseen reprecussions that can hinder efforts to build relationships.

Food for thought ...

The type of foods that we are willing to eat is one way in which we can engage with a culture and show respect to or receive honor from our host country.

As we are learning how to interact in a new culture, we will make tons of mistakes. Eating some squid can be a lot easier than eating crow!

Good Bye Minneapolis

We have spent the last eight days training and prepping for our upcoming transition to ministry in Costa Rica.  We are excited to again be moving forward and look forward to updating you on our progress as we begin to shift into a more focused support raising phase upon our return to Michigan.
 
Please continue to pray with and for us as we seek out partnership opportunities and open doors to share the gospel message and teach on missions.
