In January, we went to the LSA (a.k.a., the Linguistic Society of America) annual meeting in Portland, Oregon, with a dozen other SIL linguists and at least a couple thousand others from elsewhere. We didn’t present any papers, but we met a lot of other linguists and each attended about 20 lectures or presentations. Walking around Portland it felt like we met some of the people in the following video.
Portland has noticeable cultural differences from Texas, but all of us need to know God’s love. We were encouraged to find this video not too long after our visit. It’s about one man reaching out and living out God’s love in Portland.
