The Barrier Of Language

Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech." So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth. (Genesis 11:7-9a)

One of the great challenges of being a missionary from Australia in Denmark is the requirement to preach in the Danish language. Learning another language is hard enough, it's even harder when it's a language where people sound like they have two potatoes in their mouth.

I sit my Danish exam today as part of my visa requirements. Please pray for me! Learning another language is about the most difficult thing I've done as an adult (aside from listening to Rob Bell - of course!).
