I have had a full five months since my last newsletter. If you’d like to hear from me monthly, send me an email and I can add you to my prayer update list. Also, please read my blog as that is where I put longer reflections on my life and work in PNG.

The main event over the last few months has been my first extended trip to Ubuo to start learning Kope. I was in Gulf Province for two months, spending six weeks in the village and some time at both Kapuna and Kikori hospitals. Each of these two mission hospitals is about three hours by dinghy from Ubuo and are good places to take a break with friends before jumping back into the deep end of language learning by immersion.

Language learning is going well, but slowly. For my first time learning Kope, I am pleased with how I am doing. I am slowly building my vocabulary of words and phrases and starting to see patterns in the grammar. At the same time, I am often frustrated by how little I know and how hard it is to communicate. Thankfully I am only a complete beginner like this once. It will get easier with time and effort.
