On the airwaves

Today was a real test of our Spanish skills or lack thereof! A week ago our pastor asked us if we would be willing to speak about the life of a missionary (not that we have much experience so far!) on his talk show, "Rumbas". This morning we received a list of questions to help prepare - we had about an hour to do this.

If all the questions were followed exactly we would be fine- of course we all know that life does not work that way. Each segment, we taped 2, was supposed to last 20 minutes. We deliberately spoke for over 25 minutes knowing that the producer would have a lot of material to edit!


When we were done - we were exhausted. It took every ounce of our concentration to interpret the questions correctly and then form an answer. I also had to remain facing a certain direction as a young DJ was "rockin" to some Christian tunes in the next studio. A conference room was next door with a large glass window into the studio and several of the church members were present so we had people waving to us also.

So apparently this segment is going to be aired this Saturday (not sure what time) on FARO del caribe. Not sure how the Lord will use this experience, but it sure was entertaining!
