Greetings from Ohio.
Many of you reading this have visited us in Guatemala. Some of you know our friend and colleague, James Baartse. James is Canadian and was a member of Wycliffe for a number of years.
Greetings from Lima.
The big news for us this past month was the birth of our first grandchildren. They are both home, so Elisa has released a photo. Since Lucas stayed for a week in the hospital being monitored, Elisa didn¹t want a picture of him with an IV in his head. Plus, they are twins.more >
Greetings from Lima. Summer is hanging on, although we’ve had some cool, cloudy days.
I thought I’d report on the Linguistics conference in Albuquerque that I mentioned last month. The main thing I noticed is the big difference between minority languages in the US and Canada and those in Latin America. Most of the speakers of North American Indian languages who gave papers were among the last 100- usually the last 10 speakers of their native languages. They were all also perfectly fluent in English.
Greetings from Peru.
It is kicking into fall here and we're enjoying cooler weather. At least I am. Nancy loves it hot, which makes Lima nice for her about two months of the year, March and April. January and February are hot too, but classes start in mid-March so she gets to enjoy <Ohio> weather in January and February, rather than Lima weather.more >
