It’s been several weeks since our last post – Unfortunately, because September was such a busy, tiring month we didn’t have the time to post anything.
During September we went back to the Spanish Institute of Puebla for our final “official” course (Level 8), which couldn’t come soon enough! Below are some pictures from our graduation dinner on Sept 29. We are both feeling much more confident in our conversations and have an understanding of the grammar. From this point on we should be able to continue on the language learning path fairly well equipped.
Phil starts with a tutor this week for some more advanced coaching to continue learning fluidity and the host of Spanish phrases that are so common. Carolyn is going back for one more review session at the Institute to help solidify and progress in the advances she has made the last session.
In the next few months we will be getting more involved in our official “Orientation” of the ministry here in Central Mexico. This will include Phil travelling more with our Mexico Missionary Team as well as getting involved in some teaching of music and coaching music teams at our church so as to become more comfortable being the teacher. He will also be spending time preparing for our teaching trips and studying to prepare for preaching. After Carolyn finishes her review session, she hopes to get more involved in our community connecting with families, teaching cooking/baking and getting women involved in Bible Studies. Pray with us as we trust the Lord and follow his leading in all these things
