“Ako si Honey,” I introduce myself around the neighborhood. (Honey is my Filipino nickname, how sweet!)
Now what should I say?
Hmmm, common question these days as Chris and I study the Cebuano language. Chris ambitiously got caught up at the office, and was able to do 2 hours of language daily. I am also doing 2 hours a day with a tutor, and about 2 hours a day practicing around our neighborhood.

Practicing Cebuano at our neighbor’s
That’s my language tutor holding Sierra, ate Sheirylle.
Why not join an island motorcylce tour and learn Cebuano at the same time? Chris likes this kind of language learning!
I’m excited to see what God has planned as we build relationships through language learning. Already a nanny asked me how to be born again, but I didn’t know all the words for that. She offered to bring her Cebuano Bible next week so I could show her. What a joy to know God can speak through me.
Praise God with us:
Pray with us for:
Thank you for YOUR part in what God is doing here! Let us know if there is anything we can be praying for you about as well.
For Christ’s love compels us,
