One of our main goals during our time here in South Asia is to get to know the people and their culture as well as we can, not only so we can befriend them more deeply, but also so we can be more effective in communicating Truth to them.

And more often than not, the heat, the studies, and the three-year old have led to many incidents such as the one below--just collapsing as we fill our brains with language study!
