"Intense" August/September

Two weeks ago, I started a French Intensive Seminar here at YWAM Lausanne. The seminar is 4 weeks, 5 days a week, and 8+ hours a day. That's why it's called "intensive"! I'm excited to be learning French. It gets old quick when you go to the grocery store and don't know what the cashier is saying to you. Or when you feel lead to talk to someone about the Lord in the Lausanne city square and come to find out that you cannot communicate with them because you don't know their language - French.

Roughly 170 million people in the world speak French either as a first or second language. That's a lot of people! 30 contries in the world have French as their official language with several other countries speaking French as a secondary language.

Knowing French will open up many more doors for ministry, not only here in Switzerland, but around the world!


Would you take a few minutes right now to pray for me that I would understand as much as possible during the French course and that I would be able to retain what I've learned. Also pray that I do not become discouraged and impatient if I understand it right away. I am starting from scratch with French so I need to be patient with myself.

Thank you for faithfully praying for me. It's much appreciated and very encouraging.

God Bless,
