In case you didn't know, today is a day to remember and celebrate language!
Specifically set aside in honor of the language classified as our Heritage Language; the language we identify with most; probably our first language, and what has cleverly come to be called our Mother Tongue. (I personally like the term "Heart Language" but that's a discussion for another time)
The following article was written previously by Ed Lauber and I am excited for an opportunity to share his perspective again, written from the vantage point of a Missionary Bible Translator!
I only have two days left in Asia, and I'm anxious to get home for many reasons, one of which is the old proverbial logic that the sooner I get home the sooner I can come back! : )
There will be more updates about that later, for now, let's Praise God for the blessing of personal, human communication and what it means for our heavenly, eternal relationship.
