What In Language Nation?!?

"I ni che!

That means "Hello" in Bambara, or "Hey y'all" if you're from the South. We are now in the midst of language learning here. The Bambara people group we are working with is the largest people group in our country with over 5 million people. To try and reach and interact with them more intimately, we are doing our very best to learn Bambara. However, it is like drinking from a fire hose trying to retain enough of it to have a conversation with only 3 days training. But God speaks every language, including Bambara, so we will make every effort to do so as well that His name might be proclaimed and glorified amongst the Bambara people.  (Even if we look frizzled like this while doing so)."
