I took a little walk outside around the house, and I thought I would post a few pictures of what I saw! It is so amazing all the different little things out in nature here. I am hoping to get up early one morning to take some pictures of birds. Apparently, Panama has the most variety of birds. :)
This is a papaya tree.
Otoy--Something like a yucca (I've never had it)
...and more ants!
There are also two kids here that like to talk to me in Spanish! They are brother and sister (10 & 8). They have learned to talk to me slowly, and I can really understand them to! I love talking in Spanish, and I talked to them for about a half hour last night, and some more today. My Spanish is slowly getting better...
Here is a picture of Joanise:
I praise God so much for this opportunity to strengthen my language skills! It isn't easy, and sometimes I wish I could just let it go, but I believe God has given me a talent I just need to strengthen. I want to use this opportunity to learn Spanish better so I can use this for God's glory.
I prayed before I left and told God how much I wanted to learn to speak Spanish, and it's amazing, because He has brought people and different situations into my life that force me learn or speak a little more. God cares about the little things that matter to us!
I shall leave with a little thought:
"And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ." Col. 3:23, 24
