JRF’s #4: Language Learning IS Communication IS Ministry by E. Thomas and Elizabeth S. Brewster

I’m gonna call it and say that this book is going to win the cover of the year award.

Cheesy cover aside, this little book that I picked up at a missions conference in the “free” pile is worth it’s weight in bitcoin.  The basic premise is those cross-cultural workers who get out and talk to people learn a foreign language the quickest and best and therefore are better equipped for ministry.  In fact through the relationships made in language learning, ministry naturally occurs.   This reminder came as a good encouragement for me as I dove back into language learning after the Christmas break.
