Sometimes a little bit of effort goes a long ways. A friend of mine who came from Iran just bought a used Dodge Caravan. But in trying to call it a caravan, she was having a hard time remembering the word and finding a way to remember it. So as I was thinking of a caravan, I thought of a group of camels crossing the desert. Being the international student that I am asked, “what would you call a group of camels on a trip taking people somewhere?”
And in her native language she said it would be a cara-fan.
I had to laugh because I thought amazingly we’re not as far apart as we think sometimes. A little bit of effort goes a long way. Persian….English… it all comes together in Jesus. Life is fun.
