One of the joys we share with our ministry friends is learning new things, especially the indigenous languages that offer a huge challenge for us. The indigenous dialects in Mexico are almost exclusively oral, meaning very few read or write in their mother tongue. It’s a real challenge for us as foreigners to learn because our learning has been based on a combination of hearing, speaking, reading and writing in our school system.
On a recent ministry trip Bernabé, one of our leaders graced us with the Hymn, Wonderful Words of Life in his native language, Nahuatl. Here is a video of that presentation:
I am sitting here crying as I heard him singing in his heart language! Praise the Lord. I experienced this when I was a missionary in Nigeria.
Blessings on you as you minister there in Mexico.
