For the past three weeks, we have been attending Mission Training International (MTI) in Colorado Springs, CO. Today, we have completed the first of two training sessions. Until now, our training focused on adjusting to a new culture. In just three weeks we feel the Lord has truly grown us in our cultural perspectives and personal awareness.
We are really looking forward to the second session which starts next week. This will focus on language acquisition. As you may know, once in South Africa we will be responsible for learning the Xhosa language. We expect that our remaining time here at MTI will help us develop a positive and fun methodology for learning our new language. We couldn’t be more encouraged by the training so far, so we are sure the next session will be great!
