The “S.I.” people of South East Asia – Relationship Building

Cultural and language understanding are at the heart of relationships and the basis for ministry activities.

In order to be effective members of their team, Daz and Bee invest lots of time in understanding the local S.I people’s way of life and learning the local language. This way they can communicate and share in day-to-day life activities as well as on a more personal level by speaking the heart language of their local friends. To do this, they spend 2-3 hours daily, 5 days a week studying with their language nurturers and continues to make cultural observations through watching, listening, questioning and practicing.
