Starting in July, Jackson, Julianna and myself are going to be taking Chinese lessons. This sweet lady that has visited our church a few times is from China, and she has agreed to teach Chinese to all the children from China. And us, of course! She is so sweet. It is a miracle that she has even visited our church because she doesn't even know who Jesus is!

I think that this opportunity is completely orchestrated by Jesus. She is so curious about the bible. I believe surrounding herself with Christians is exactly where she needs to be. I pray she sees the Light in us, and I pray we don't fail her.

Anyway, so we are going to be learning some Chinese. I hope that it will prove helpful with Jessica. Considering the fact that she will be a little older, it is important to me to be able to communicate with her. I think it will make her more comfortable too, if her family knows a little bit of her language. I already know how to tell her I love her, and ask her if she needs to potty. Some might say that is enough, LOL!

Anyway, so I am excited about our opportunities! I am thankful that Jesus placed someone in my life that doesn't know Him, so I have an opportunity to share! If you would like to pray for this sweet lady, her name is WuMing. I can't wait to come back and tell you that she accepted Christ in her heart! I know she will!

Thats pretty freakin' awesome.

Just think you can call a Chinese place and order food! LOL. OK. Not the reply you wanted but had to say that.

Tonya, I am pretty sure even YOU can say fried rice.

Did you know that there are multiple variations of Chinese - at least a dozen - and that they are mutually unintelligible?

What a cool opportunity!

I do know there are many different variations. However, even if we are unable to use what we learn with our daughter/sister, it is still an awesome homeschool opportunity for my children. Learning a new language and socialization. Plus the *bigger* picture is we will get to know our new friend and we get to be a witness to her.

Also, it is something that gets us excited and it gives us something to look forward to. Even if we just use what we learn for our own enjoyment.

I think it's great that you're going to learn Chinese! What a neat opportunity to learn and share.
