Sweet... I would take a class at community college for French or hire a tutor or do an online program or all of the above! You have to speak French to build relationships out here, whatever you do before coming will make your year much more fruitful. It is a huge struggle to learn French for the first time out here.
Dude are you from Oregon? I heard about you from Theisens and Doug Hazen. I am the first guy leader living in West Africa with JC. Stoked you will be joining our small band of brothers here in September.
1. Learn FRENCH now!
2. Raise Mission Partners.
