Well, this feels to me to be a pretty seriously silly prayer request, but I need some help and don’t have a lot of other options!
Spero has some pretty exciting potential in our work with refugees from all over the world. More about that in another post as it develops. So, that has caused Brad and I to become more involved in the refugee population than we were previously. I’m liking that and have no complaints there!
It’s just that I have a hard time remembering someone’s name when it’s Eric. Or Bob. Or Lou. I’ve grown up in Oklahoma and have absolutely no propensity for foreign languages, as evidenced by the fact that I can’t remember how to ask for the bathroom if I were to visit France even though I completed French IV in high school. So, I’m really struggling with remembering people’s names that are so different to my ear. I know it’s important to remember people’s names and it has to make them feel less important to me than they really are when I have to ask several times!
So, I need the Lord to open up my measly little brain! And, to continue to have favor on us in working with this population, creating and blessing relationships.
