I'm writing this blog post on the eve of an immersion language program that prohibits me from speaking English for two months. Starting 7am tomorrow morning, with very few exceptions, I will no longer be allowed to speak English until August 10th. I hope to become much more proficient in Arabic by the next time you hear from me. Well, at least by the next time you hear from me in English; I might bumble my way through an Arabic tweet or two :-)
I hope to learn Arabic well so I can be more precise and accurate in my Islamic studies. Please pray that I will work with excellence to glorify Him not just in the outcome, but in the process :-) Your prayers are coveted and greatly appreciated.
P.S. I may intermittently be posting short updates and tweets in Arabic. Feel free to use http://translate.google.com to read :-)
