More News from Joni!
I just wanted to post a quick addendum to Justin's post because I need some special prayers for the next three weeks - I'm starting language school! Dan & Beth (see their picture in Justin's post) are going to be in Moldova for the next three weeks, and in that time, they want to take an intensive crash course in Romanian. Kelly (she's also in the picture) has been studying with a different teacher for the past two months, but she's discouraged at her lack of progress. So, for the next three weeks, the four of us are going to be totally immersing ourselves in Romanian! We have found a professional teacher named Adriana who is giving us a reasonable rate for a group class. We will meet at Dan & Beth's apartment every weekday from 11:30 to 1:30 - that's TWO HOURS a DAY! EVERY DAY for THREE WEEKS!!! Yikes! That sounds perfect for actually becoming competent in the language fast. But I think it will be an adventure and very exhausting. So please be in prayer for all of us as we take this crash course and try to learn how to communicate well!
