No really... I'm a pilot.

While sitting in language school this week, conjugating endless verbs and learning yet another way to say something in the past tense, I had a stunning realization:


"Eventually, I'm going to get out of here and start flying"

Learning Spanish has been difficult and even after almost 5 months of study, I still find myself very much at a loss for words... literally. I have been a conjugating machine instead of a pilot since moving to Peru. Did you know that there are 6 ways to say something in the past tense. 6 DIFFERENT WAYS! I know there are 6 cylinders on my airplane engine...


But while sitting in class, I remembered that by March I should be living out in Pucallpa and beginning the ministry that I have been working towards for the last 8 years. These are some pictures that have found homes as background wallpaper on my computer. It is a good reminder of what skills I do poses... unlike speaking good Spanish.
