The team that is working with the Masalite on the literacy program is quite multicultural–German (Angela), Chinese Malaysian (Eunice), and South African (Marthinus). An Australian couple also works with this team, but they are away right now.
Everyone on our team has been able to spend time along the way with someone from their home country. Not only has this helped me to learn a little more about Taiwan and South Africa, it’s also meant that in addition to French, Arabic (the trade languages of the areas we’ve visited) and English, I’ve also heard conversations in Manderine Chinese and Afrikaans. I’m loving it.
