Great Advances in Spanish
We have been in language school for two months now. We have learned many different rules, exceptions to rules, tenses, moods, and the like but more than that we have had the opportunity to put into practice what we are learning. I was given the opportunity to give the offering devotion eight separate times. This involves reading a verse in the Bible in Spanish that pertains to giving and expounding upon that verse (or small passage of verses) for 2-3 minutes. This doesn’t seem like much, but it is a great opportunity for me to practice in front of a church. Iglesia Bautista El Faro (Lighthouse Baptist Church) is where we attend while in language school. Pastor Jorge has given me these opportunities to preach. There are many men in the church who could do this better than I can, but Pastor Jorge still allows me the opportunity! I make mistakes as I speak, but the people in the church are very forgiving and encouraging. I am very thankful for every opportunity I am given!

The offering devotion is just one of the ways we are learning Spanish. We have a blog series on our website about Language learning. We encourage you to go to AdvanceTheGospel.net and read about the different ways we are learning Spanish.
