November 2012: Dreaming in Chuukese

Hasn't lost that fun personality
By training Elder John, Eric has had to put his ability to learn Chuukese into overdrive. Since Elder John's English is limited, Eric has really worked hard to master the language. Since Eric's Chuukese is better than Elder John's English, all the lessons are now taught in Chuukese. Eric says when he goes to sleep at night he will think through conversations and try to speak in Chuukese in his head.  So now a  lot of his dreams are in Chuukese. Eric can sometimes talk in his sleep, and his companion told him he speaks in Chuukese. Eric said "It is amazing to see the power of the Gift of Tongues, yo." Yo indeed.
