what I've learned // week 4

what I've learned this week . . . 

1. it's pretty much impossible to watch a two year old, clean, and listen to worship music.

2. instead of telling people in Chadian Arabic that I have three sisters, I've been telling them I have three daughters. whoops.

3. that you know you're in Chad when the first question at the airport you get asked is, "Are you married?" and when my reply is no, the second question is, "Well would you like to be married?"

4. do not push two little girls on the extremely crooked swings at the same time, once they get high enough they will crash into each other.

5. listening to Arabic and listening to mumford & sons at the same time just doesn't work.

6. God stays the same and His grace never runs out, ever, even when I mess up.

7. Chadian "nutella" on bread is actually not bad.

8. if you try to speak with someone with a German accent it will rubb off on you if you're not careful.

9. moping floors here is pointless. someone is bound to walk through the water (with sandy, dusty feet) and it will turn to mud.

10. special treats like pancakes, movies, "nutella", juice, and phone calls on weekends are just the best.


  1. That is good. You have figured out what some of us take years to know. Words of wisdom. Thank you!

  2. So awesome reading about what you've learnt in the past month! God is so good, praying and thinking of you. :)

  3. That is hilarious about the airport question!!! Why do they ask that???



thanks for sharing your thoughts -- comments make my day!
