My mother, now 95 years old, escaped from East Germany to West Germany in 1946, then to the U.S.A. Refugees are people.
I can’t color well. This year, the Academy added a magician to the program; so I better be good! Not just a cartoon blogger, but a magician as well.
British English for trunk. Auburn put Alabama in the boot.
Two six-foot long black spitting cobras were killed in the unrefrigerated morgue. The punchline is true especially if you don’t like snakes.
I really thought WOW. Still do!
My first Bible lesson in Mongolia was five short sentences (Subject, verb, and object). You are on Holy ground when you translate from your heart language to their heart language. For me it took years!
You learn it in class. You practice it with your tutor. Then you go to the market to use it. Then they say something not covered in the lesson. The other person is saying “this is a furniture store, please go next door”. Pray for missionaries as they minister in another tongue.
Chapter Thirty is called Football is Football. A preacher not speaking the local language wanted to compare soccer to football.

This is a reminder to pray daily for England.
This past May, I visited the church where I was in confirmation class. Back then, I was 19 and my hair may have been a little longer. I opted out on the very last class. Pastor and I disagreed on too many scripture interpretations. As one who has translated scripture into other languages, I know the importance of the work. Pray for missionaries as they speak in a new tongue.
While I had spoken to deaf people, speaking to a blind and deaf person removed me from my comfort zone. I had no training in this. I just placed their hands on mine and started speaking. Wow! It is worth repeating: Wow!
