I shared a bench with a Chinese lass who had her nose buried in English Study books. I could hear her reading out loud practicing the vaguries of English.
It must be difficult learning a new culture and speech not learnt as a child.
I was immersed in English from birth, it has always come naturally to me. Not perfect "Queen's Eglish" I hasten to add, I am no scholar. But Ihave no difficulty swapping thoughts with folk around me.
How important to imerse ourselves in the scriptures and a personal relationship with God. Our faith will not grow if we only take the occassional 'SnapShot' of what it's all about. In immersing ourselves in God, our faith will become natural.
