Thank you to all those who were upholding me in your prayers today for my language exam. I so appreciate your concern and desire to see us suceed in speaking the language. It forever will be a point of growth for us, so keep praying for all us including the kids. Our main goal (ministry) over these past three years has been to learn the language and culture without which how can we ever expect to reach others here. We give God the glory for allowing us to make some major significant steps in the process.
I had a good night of sleep for the most part and had a peace going in to the exam. After 4 hours of stress and tension taking the exam I am pretty much destroyed! Seriously, I felt like throwing up the final hour of the exam and pretty much went straight to bed when we got home around 2:30pm. I really hope it was stress related and not an oncoming illness. It took a while for me to get my brain in gear and untangle the mess of grammar rules and verb conjugations that where spilling out of my brain. I don't remember how many sections there were but I do have to retake two: listening/reading comprehension and another section filled with pronouns, prepositions and the like. I am pleased to have passed all the other parts and this will much relieve me of some stress on furlough. I will plan to retake these two sections by the end of the year along with completing some other writing projects.
Anyway, that's the latest. Now I can fully focus on packing suitcases and home for 5 months in our remaining 8 days! Where does one begin??
