In order to give their kids a new life experience, a year and a half ago my sister and her husband moved with their three kids to Guatemala. This week the kids are showing us all of their favorite things. First up - a ride on a tuk-tuk! #needgreaters#guatemala#jutiapa#nieces#nephews
Almost 4 years ago we embarked on the journey to learn Spanish. Granted, Spanish is an easier language than most to learn but here are 5 practical tips to tackle a language based on personal experience:
1. Expect lows and plan how you will deal with them-expecting perfection will lead to disappointment and feelings of failure. There WILL be lows. Cry, get frustrated or embarrassed and then move on. Keep a positive quote, scripture etc. Nearby for those moments to help refocus your mind on the positive.
2. Surround yourself with the language- Much of what we have learned has come from just hearing others speak the language. You hear people say a word over and over and you learn in what context it’s ok to use that word. Also, you’re forced into conversing which gives you no other choice but to keep learning so you can talk to your brothers and sisters.
3. Keep up with your spiritual routine...in the language of your heart- this was a tip found in a WT but is so true! Learning a new language can be spiritually draining since you’re not receiving as much spiritual food as before. Spiritual food=energy. You won’t have the energy to continue learning the language if you don’t fortify yourself in the language of your heart.
4. Give yourself some extra time to study the WT- The WT is an excellent tool to help you learn many new words. Typically it uses simpler language and is a great way to learn the proper way to speak the language. If you use jw library to study, make a tag in your study for example: “Spanish words.” Then as you’re studying, highlight the word, lookup the definition and add that info to your spiritual gems with the tag. Then you can look back whenever you need and study those words that you learned.
5. Sticky notes are your friend-write the word in the language you’re learning on sticky notes and stick them everywhere! The fridge, the mirror, the light switch, anywhere you can think of.True, it’s not the most ideal in home decorating but you will see those words everyday and make a visual connection and you will be surprised how quickly your start to learn! Follow for Part 2 of this series and more practical tips.

Here’s an encouraging scripture I saved into my personal study gems.
Sure, we can give Jehovah our “firstfruits” financially to support the worldwide work. But maybe our “firstfruits” could also include giving Jehovah the first pick of our TIME. Serving as a need greater often involves BOTH.
More meals in service today! Fried rice and chicken. @ryan_vanessa_gangaram study with Sharda and Bai and they attend meetings regularly. Brother Bai is a publisher and hopes to be baptized at the next assembly.
Awesome day in Tapachula! Started with the beach and ended with ice cream. We went to the Spanish meeting (no English in Tapachula) where these two little cuties taught me some Spanish phrases and stole my heart #tapachula#jwfriends#bestlifeever#needgreaters

Travel is a necessary cost when going to serve somewhere or when we’re currently serving in an assignment and need to come home to work or take care of family. Here are 5 travel sites that have helped us to save lots of money when traveling:
They update their fares every few days and you can find some awesome deals but you do have to check the site from time to time and it’s better if you’re not in a rush
2. Orbitz- I love Orbitz!! They often have low prices compared to other sites and if you sign up to be a member (it’s free) they’ll often give you 10% off the price just because you’re a member. Also,every time you purchase through them, they will give you “Orbucks” which you can use for future travel purchases. They often have promo codes floating around the internet that you can use for your purchase and your “bucks” can be combined with promo codes.
These are very popular sites and sometimes it can be cheaper to rent a house or apartment instead of getting a hotel. Depends on the area but especially if you’re sharing a place with family or friends it can save you a good amount of money. (Watch out for hidden fees and cleaning fees though)
4. Travelzoo-they often advertise good flight/hotel/rental car deals. They change often so they will send you email deals although just FYI sometimes the emails can advertise trips that are quite tempting in price but maybe not in harmony with your spiritual goals. Don’t get sucked in!!
5. Priceline- They have the “name your own price” feature where you can tell them what you’d like to pay and they can either decline or accept your offer. It’s kind of like haggling for your price. They also have “express deals.” But here’s the deal: You don’t see the hotel name, just the rating and amenities and they don’t tell you the hotel name until after you pay (scary I know) BUT you can get some pretty deep discounts. Although there’s a secret to investigating what hotel you’re getting...Look in the main list of hotels, find the one you’re looking for and pay attention to the exact location, amenities and rating.
