Encouragment from the Jungle of all Places!

Just got an email from a dear friend who translates God's Word in the jungles of Papua New Guinnea.  This is what she wrote:

Matt 6:25-34
Do not be anxious for your life, as to how you shall ever read French or learn how to say that stinkin' hard sound in that language. Is not life more than learning a new culture and a new language? Look at the birds of the air, they do not struggle to learn French or worry about fashion, or what new friends they will make, YET YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER takes care of them. ARE YOU NOT WORTH MUCH MORE THEN THEY? Which of you be being anxious can add a single hour to their life span? For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things, but seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. Therefore, do not be anxious about tomorrow.

So, since the birds of the air aren't concerned about learning French . . . so, as we say here c'est ne pas grave (loosly translated: no worries).
