“Sold, to 4897” the auctioneer said as we claimed our small snowblower for $2. During October, we have been participating in the Intercultural Communication Course (ICC) at the Wycliffe-JAARS Center (jaars.org) near Charlotte, North Carolina. One of the required training activities was to attend an auction where we learned how to interact on the fly by observing other participants.
The focus of the training is preparation for transitioning to a new culture and serving well in any environment. The skills we are practicing and the topics we are studying are essential for successful cross-cultural communication during our language study in France and for our ministry in Cameroon.
