Day 16, Tuesday, March 20

Being in another culture is stressful!  One hard part is constantly having expectations placed on you that you don’t know about or understand.  For example, I’m just realizing that people around here expect anyone to be able to preach “a word” at a moment’s notice.  I really don’t know what to do about that since I don’t think women should preach at all.  They’ve asked me or Bryan to share tonight at the evening devotions, & so I think he’s going to.

Today we took two more word & sentence lists from two more women.  The grammars of all these languages are very similar, which makes us think that the computer assisted adaptation would be possible for many of them.  The only thing we’re unsure of is whether there are enough of the speakers to make language vitality likely.
