I'm midway through my first week of language studies since the Christmas break. I have less than a month to go until I finish my final German course. That doesn't mean that I am finished learning, however. I still have a ways to go before I would consider myself fluent. I do have a good foundation on which I can build, though. Tomorrow I have to register for a German proficiency exam that will determine whether or not I'm able to enter the university. The actual exam takes place on February 2. As you may recall our current visa situation is dependent upon my status as a student. Please pray for me throughout the next few weeks as I prepare for this test. Have a great day!
