colorado bound!

for the next 5 weeks, i’ll be up in colorado springs in training at MTI, Missionary Training International. (June 14-June 25: PILAT, June 28-July 16: SPLICE)

i’m feeling very excited, but also a little apprehensive. we have two different training courses: PILAT–language acquistion, and SPLICE–field training. PILAT will help us learn techniques, skills and methods needed to learn another language. yay! i need all the help i can get!

SPLICE is designed to help us develop practical skills and attitudes that will help us adjust to life in another culture. “splice” stands for spiritual, personal, lifestyle, interpersonal, cultural and endurance training. i have heard that this training is “intense.” that is the word everyone i know who has been through it uses to describe it. so, i’m not totally sure what to expect…but i know it will be a very helpful tool, and i am praying God would continue to refine our team through this training. join me in praying for our team!

this is the training facility. i have to say…i don’t hate that i will be in the mountains for 5 weeks! 🙂 ahh….
