Waste Not

I am learning that God has let nothing in my life experiences go to waste.  Turns out that even my Online Dating experience prepared me for life as a missionary.  This week I signed up online at a sight for people searching for Language Exchange Partners.  Much like one signs up for online dating minus the pictures and with much less upfront information.  And now just a few short days later my inbox is filled with Italians who want to meet for coffee and to exchange an hour of English for an hour of Italian.  Today I am meeting with my first 2, then Sunday 1, Monday 2...I am taking a break on Tuesday and Wednesday to attend the Refugee Highway Conference and then 2 more on Thursday.  Just goes to show you that you never know what God will use.

I think this is awesome!! And while I'm not discounting the benefits of formal language school, I think this will be just as beneficial - maybe even more so! Plus the fact that you're expanding your circle of friends. :-)

Confirmation, to me, that God is leading the whole thing. :)

Well, sorry to say today's first round of Conversation Exchanges sucked (sorry that is the only word I can think of in English to describe my afternoon). The first guy did not show, I waited for 40 min. And turns out I waited at the wrong Piazza for the second so we did not meet either. Round 3 tonight.
