I’ve been in the process of learning Spanish for the last few weeks. I bought a Spanish workbook and it came with a CDROM for audio and extra practice. It’s tourist Spanish, but I’m mostly using it for sentence structure.
Why learn Spanish, you ask? Well, I really want to be able to reach out to a HUGE demographic where we live with our ministry. We currently live in the gulf coast region of South Texas, about an hour and a half from the Mexican border. My husband and his family are fluent Spanish speakers, and I can speak a whole lotta German. Spanish? Not so much. I think that by learning Spanish and bible Spanish we can reach people for Christ more than ever!! Reformers Unanimous has Spanish materials, so it’s just me not knowing how to speak or understand it that is keeping us from becoming a bilingual ministry.
I am currently memorizing Isaiah 55:7 for one of the Reformers Unanimous challenges. I have the English verse down, but am still working on the Spanish translation. My goal is to memorize all the RU verses in both English and Spanish!!
