The Language of LoveMarch 23rd, 2017 — compassionradio
David Chavez isn't prone to fear of 'others.' As the son of missionaries to South America, he knows what it's like to feel out of place in a foreign country. In his case that 'foreign country' was America, even though he's an American citizen. A lot of missionary kids grow up in this in between place.
Now, some 'third culture kids' nurture a nagging resentment at having missed out on a 'normal' American life. David is not that sort. Quite the contrary. His experience has given him a genuine compassion for those caught between two worlds. And he put feet to that compassion. Today, his all-volunteer 'Bridges Language Academy' is helping refugees navigate a new language and a new life... in South Florida. And the best part is that Jesus is at the the very center of it!
