Language 101

Welcome! Just behind me on the 2nd floor, is our apartment for our month long stay in Antsirabe.

Sunday morning at a local Lutheran church. Almost 500 people attended worship!

For the past two weeks Austin and I have been diligently studying the Malagasy language and culture.  We are here in Antsirabe [3 hours south of Tana] at a Lutheran language school.  We have class 4 hours each day, just the two of us, with a wonderful Malagasy teacher.

 

We attended a Lutheran Church about a 30 minute walk from where we are staying.  The service was a traditional Lutheran liturgy; we were able to  follow along with the order of worship and many of the songs.  From our language classes we even understood a few words and phrases.

    You are living a dream that I have always had, to live abroad and share the good news of Jesus Christ! How blessed you are!!! Enjoy each day and good luck with language class.
