The last few weeks have been difficult. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail except to say that a very special family member has gone home to be with the Lord. That is a confidence for which I am very grateful. He, in his own way and probably without realizing it, was one of my biggest “cheerleaders”. Swahili and a lot of other things took the back burner while my parents, one of my sisters and her children and I loaded into a van and made the trip back to Ohio for the memorial service. I would ask that you pray for his parents, his wife and their unborn baby girl and for our family as a whole. He is greatly missed.
I did take Units 8-11 with me, but I was only able to read through them a couple of times. Since Unit 11 introduces a new category of vocabulary, I mostly focused on Units 8-10. They are dealing with asking for food and introduce several types of fruit (Matunda). I thought you might enjoy a little fruit game. So, here are four words. See if you can guess which fruit they belong to in the picture below (No Cheating!) :
Chungwa, Ndizi, Tufaha, Zabibu
