Our small mission team meets monthly to prepare mentally and spiritually for our journey. As we meet, we discuss lesson plans, share prayer requests, and talk about the mandate God has set before us. Each of us will be required to attend a 4 hour cross cultural training class to help us deal with the culture shock and differences we'll face in this country. We'll also have to take a series of shots to protect us from diseases that are prevalent in that country.
As we get to know each other better, we find that though we are each very different, we're very much the same. We all want to share Jesus with those who may not know Him and we all want to be obedient to the call placed on our lives. In preparation for the journey, I've decided to sit in on a class where English as a Second Language is being taught.
