We had a lovely time in Australia over Christmas, visiting Jenni's family. Now we are back to business in the Africa. We have spent the better part of August 2012 - November 2013 learning the national language in a city on the coast. In November 2013 we moved inland to a little village where many women don't speak much portuguese and to get deep with most people, we need to learn their heart language.
So we are back to language lessons, this time with our people's heart language. Nate has a language tutor for three hours in the morning while I do preschool with the girls, and then I do two hours of the heart language in the afternoons, four days a week. So far so good!
