“mink, i won’t be speaking to you in thai language anymore from next week on. i will also tell the youth group to do the same thing. if you want to get better at karen, you need the practice.” – jor dah
and i’m dreaded. yes, yes and yes, i want to be able to speak karen fluently…to use it just like i can use english and thai. but i don’t know what to expect at this point…so that’s why i’m a bit afraid.
i think i need a tutor…even better…a mentor. someone who would teach me intensively…everyday, if possible. i am motivated to learn but not by myself. i remember spending about 3 days with karen people…i learned fast and a lot.
so it’s my prayer that God would grant me that person, whoever it might be, to help me learn.
tomorrow i’m going up to a project in the mountains. it will take about 5 hours to get there. but i look forward to it. i love mountains! so i’d better get to bed now. it will be an early start. the driver will pick me up at 5:20.
heading to bed now…
