Small Lizards

 In Uncategorized

I sat in class a few weeks ago talking to ‘Anna’ during the mid-morning break. I’ve tried to take every opportunity I could to share truth with her since class started in November. Aboubacar joined us. Conversation turned toward French language study. We all agreed it’s hard work and time consuming. Aboubacar turned to me and very seriously said, “When it comes to learning, whether you’re an adult or a small lizard, it’s difficult!” I’m not sure why, but I thought that was hysterical. Indeed, sometimes language learning does make you feel like a small lizard!

While our formal French studies are now complete, informal French language learning will continue for years. It’s true, ‘learning is difficult,’ but God gives wisdom to those who ask (James 1:5)… even to small lizards like us.

    Hey David & Billie!
    What an awesome website! Have been lifting you guys up at home and at school. In fact, I vaguely described your recent situation without saying your names in one class and this girl turns around and says, “You’re talking about the Blessings!” I still don’t know her name, but if I get the chance I’ll ask her how she knows you guys.
    I am so glad to hear that God has been gracious and opened the door. May He continue to open door after door after door as you go in His name!
    Love and prayers,
    Tyler & Katrina

    Hello, you little lizard! How exciting that God is once again opening the doors for you and David to go where he has called you. You have a great web site, and it’s fun to read you blogs.

    And Oh, by the way, Marisa found Duncan after he had already visited 3 different ladies in the ‘hood! We’re glad he’s back.

    God Bless.
