Settling In…

January 12, 2007 at 5:59 pm (Uncategorized)

Hey world, this is Mike and I just wanted to share with you a few things that have been going on for me here in Sevilla. Well,l I just moved into a new place this month with a freind(and his family)and it has been a really great for me, in a couple of ways. One, its good to have a little space to yourself so you can just process life and enjoy a little tranquility because there’s not much of that floating around these days, especially when you live in the city. Also living here has been great for me to have a quiet place to study, I have been having trouble diving into the spanish books in the past but living here has allowed me to have the space and the lonliness that I need in order for me to study effectively (Normally, I talk outloud when I study so it helps to be alone or people will think I’m crazy; which they probably already do). I finally feel that I have settled into my life here in Spain, I’m starting to form my life in more of a schedule; which is always helpful especially when you need to be focused on language study. For so long I have been unsettled, unfocused and unfruitful but I beleive that God has given me a fresh start by allowing me to get settled in and to feel more at home here in Spain. Just this past week by studying about two hours a day, listening to spanish music and wathcing spanish movies I have seen my language improve tremedously(not quite there yet but on the way). This growth spert that I have experienced has been catacalistic by flaming my desire to learn more, especially; since I know that God has been putting people in my path that are willing to talk about Him but since I am unable to communicate with them on such a level it blows. They need Jesus and I like to talk about Jesus but there’s only one problem, I cannot express such truth to them without knowing more spanish but as God continues to build these relationships the time will come when I can share His truth to them in Love, and in their own language. Forgive me for all spelling and grammatical errors:). Have a great New Year.
