Breaking barriers in Peru

Tim in front of a store in Cusco, Peru.

Have you ever struggled to speak in a different language? Maybe you know the feeling of having no idea how to say what you are thinking. I have had my fair share of those moments since I grew up speaking English and had relatively few experiences to practice the Spanish I learned in school.

A similar situation occurred during the Pentecost, which is described in the second chapter of Acts in the Bible. There, Jesus’ disciples were confronted with a situation in which many different languages were spoken in the same place. The disciples had an important message to convey and an absolute trust in God to guide them. They were “filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2:4)—and this allowed everybody to hear that message in their own language, clearly expressing the one divine Mind that united them.
