The Scoop

Wow, so sometimes something has to move aside for other things and this time it was the blog.  But things are going pretty well here.  Dennis and I are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in language learning.  It is pretty great to know that all this work is paying off.  We are able to communicate now in Tagalog although still at a very low level.  Maybe like a 4-5 year old?  I don't know.  Anyway, it is still exciting and we are just so thankful for God's goodness to us in helping us get this far.

Today we had a little goodbye party for a few of the other students who are moving on to their next areas of work soon.  One couple will be supply buying and maintaining the guest house in a smaller city up north for other missionaries in remote locations for the next few months, and the other couple are involved in the aviation program.

Another exciting thing was when I realized as I looked around the room that Dennis and I and one other classmate are hopefully the next people who will be finishing up!  Maybe the next party will be ours!?!  Woo hoo!

Dennis is going on a trip up north next week with a few other guys to check out a possible area for us to work in after we learn Tagalog.  I'll try to post about that soon.
