Dear and good friends,
Greetings from Lima, Peru. Happiest Easter to you all. He is risen.
I’m teaching a course in Phonology here at CILTA. Nancy isn’t with me this trip.
Just to catch you up a bit. I have eight students and a teaching assistant from Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Honduras, and Mexico, from south to north.
1. Pray for CILTA’s class of 8 native Spanish-speaking missionary candidates, training in linguistics for effective cross-cultural ministry. Pray for Wes as he teaches a course in Phonology, the study and comparison of language systems around the world. Also pray for a great relationship with his students and for friendship and discipleship that go beyond the classroom.
2. Pray that our students maintain healthy relationships among each other. The training is pretty intense, and there are stressful issues related to studies, finances, future ministry and other unknowns. Students really appreciate your prayers.
