Today’s word is short, simple and easy to pronounce! It’s the word for “step” or “footstep.”
It’s pronounced like our word “croak,” but a little differently because the letter “r” in Slovak is a flipped r, like you probably learned in Spanish.
Why this word today? Because we recently received a picture of this display at one of our partner churches. It was made by a children’s group at Huguenot Road Baptist Church in Richmond, Va.
This display with the footprints is a clever way to highlight one of our themes, “Praying With Your Feet” (remember the song we re-recorded and posted a few weeks ago?). We love to see things like this, because it reminds us that we’re on a journey… and that we’re not on the journey alone. Thanks HRBC, for being partners with us on the way!
Like our English word “step,” krok can mean a physical footstep, or a step in a process. One of our mottos in learning Slovak and learning to minister here has been the phrase:
Krok za krokom!
“Step by step.” That’s how we encounter God, that’s how we learn Slovak, that’s how we serve others… it only happens one step at a time.
