Harrison Dell recently left Springfield for Mozambique. He will be updating us frequently about his experiences there. We would like to explain a few of the "jargon" he will be using in his updates to follow.
Makua – the tribal group that the mission team is working with
Makua-metto – the language of the Makua people
Smiths – the missionary family that Harrison is staying with. Jeremy is the father of this family.
Howells – one of the other missionary families working with the Smiths. Allen is the father of this family
Interns – the group of college students (including Harrison) that are visiting Mozambique together
Team – Harrison will refer to the “mission team” and “our team” – the first is obvious; the second is the group of interns mentioned above.
Bonding Experience – Harrison will spend several nights in a village home by himself – “bonding” with that family and learning about life in the village.
