Two languages? Bilingual.
One language? American.
I’m writing this on a train between Zagreb and Split, Croatia. Sharing our compartment is a Croatian man who works as a waiter. He knows German, Croatian, and Russian fluently plus a little English and Hungarian. And he’s typical for this part of the world.
We Americans are the exception; and with English fast becoming the second language of Europe, it’s likely we’ll remain that way.
But I hope we monolingual American Christians will move beyond mono-national interests and get involved with sharing the Gospel in different countries.
It’s not everyone’s responsibility to become a foreign missionary, but it’s everyone’s responsibility to pray that the world will know about Christ’s love.
"Open your eyes and look at the fields! They are white for harvest." John 4:35
Let's make prayer for the nations our "second language."
