Out & About...

We have started language learning! :) What we've been doing with our group this week is going into town and experiencing culture in a natural situation. In experiencing the culture and seeing things we're about to learn it helps our minds start to comprehend these new words a bit easer.
This is a picture of the start of our 'down town' to we're been spending a lot of time in...

Here is a picture of us going into town on the local transportation 'mini bus'. Aways nice to have a recent photo!

This picture below is a good example of how we've been feeling lately, Western tourist in a Eastern world! We've been feeling very out of place and a little awkward in this new culture. But! As we study new words and comprehend them we are becoming very exited! :)

We will write more soon! Thank you for your continued support and prayers for our family here in Indonesia!
