We are in New York City! Whoever called it a concrete jungle named it apptly. This place is huge! Today we had our first classes in linguistics, an orientation to city life, and then we went out on the streets to get aquainted with the city. My group walked through most of Queens looking for live eel and longan fruit. Parts of the city are like they are in another country. For two hours we did not see another white person! My room mates are great, the other students are wonderful, and I know we are going to learn sooo much in the next few weeks!
For those of you that don't know, my family is in NYC for five weeks at the DestiNATIONS International Missions Training Center. It is basically Mission Bible School. All DNI missionaries go through this "orientation" before going on the mission field, and any one else that wants to be a more effective missionary also may go through the classes. We are in the classroom most of the day, and then out on the streets from 3-5 every evening! Please pray for us as we learn and minister here!
