Hi Hola Hi Hola Hi Hi Hola

23 10 2008

I smiled at the toddler’s cheery determination to get my attention: “Hi! Hola! Hi! Hola! Hi! Hi! Hola!” (and it kept going!). I was walking to the mailboxes, and he was calling from a second story window of a house down the street. I smiled – but it was a sober smile, reminding me that I live on a mission field where toddlers aren’t sure whether to say Hi or Hola because both languages are so common. Lord, send laborers into this harvest field who know their language – or provide the way for us to learn.
