A Week of business

This week has already been very busy. I am studying very hard and trying to get ready for our annual National Leader's Conference. I am excited to go although I wish that it was closer than Warsaw. I AM excited to see many friends and to see God move in the young people of this country.

I made the decision to change to a lower Polish class. It turns out to be a great choice! The teacher seems to have a passion to teach Polish. It is not just a job for her. I sat in class and actually understood what she said! It was a great feeling to be in a class where you don't feel completely stupid! My teacher has also agreed to tutor me a bit. I am excited at this prospect! Tomorrow I meet with my other tutor, Pani Basia. She is an older lady who speaks NO English and we get a long just fine. She remindes me of my grandmother and I love spending time with her. Basia is not a believer and I can not wait for the day when I get to explain in Polish, why I am in Poland!

It is snowing and I feel like I am in Colorado! The first day of spring and you wake up to SNOW!!! Yeppie!

Well, I ask that you pray for this weekend. Many students come to the conference to rest from the spritual, emotional and mental stress of their lives. Please pary for the next two days! We leave in the morning and every year, something "goes wrong" to prevent us for getting this conference going.

So happy to hear that the language change is feeling better. That is such a fine needle to thread - getting the right teacher and learning situation. Thank God for moving some pieces into place for you. Look forward to hearing good language stories from you in the future! Andrea Pitcher
