Robinson Ministry Update – 10th November 2016
This content is over a year old now. Please, read this page keeping its age in your mind and realise that not all the links will work. I'm happy to hear from you if you find anything that is broken or dysfunctional, but I may or may not be able to do anything about it!
Greetings from a slightly chillier Jos, Okay, so can’t really complain, it is still about 23 degrees C inside the house and warmer outside. The dry harmattan winds have definitely turned our way, sending us a delicate covering of dust for all our furnishings and dropping the humidity to 20%.
Dan is back at school after his October break. He is coming home with Christmas songs to practice ready for the Christmas concert. Kind of fun (if a little early) to hear jingle bells ringing through the house from his glockenspiel (which I am assured is the only correct name for it, it is definitely NOT a xylophone because it is made of metal).
I had to spend a week of enforced rest at home after spraining my ankle. I can now walk on it and have returned to the office but it is still quite painful at times so having to be careful.
Tim and I are starting a Hausa course on Monday that will run every weekday morning for three weeks. It is going to be a monolingual course, taught purely in Hausa with no English. We have been warned that we are not to take notes but simply to listen. I won’t lie, I am feeling a little nervous about it and feeling like if I can’t see the word written down, how will I remember it? However, we are assured that it is a highly successful technique and I hope to just throw myself into it and have fun. Tim is feeling a little more uncertain about it as I am sure you can imagine if you know him well.
Thank you for being part of the team that God has called to this work! If you can, please take some time to pray for the following:
Praise Improvement in my ankle Opportunity to improve our Hausa God’s Word getting out there through mobile phones!
Prayer My ankle will continue to heal and I will not try and do too much too quickly! We can make the most of the Hausa course That more people would have the opportunity to hear God’s word in their language
