This is just for fun, really. My friend Tim Batt put all of this stuff together for his timecky site (counting down to his wedding date). I liked it so much, I just had to figure out some way to use it. So...that's pretty much the only reason for it.

That being said, please let me explain a few things here. First: when people hear that I am learning Romanian and will be doing other, more common types of ministry after I have learned the language well enough, they often ask, "when will you be done learning Romanian?" Which I find to be a really funny question. I'm still learning English (aren't you?). So...not to be morbid, but the completion date for Romanian is based on my life expectancy (I chose July 4 for the fireworks).

Second:  My initial commitment will be over in Feb 2006. However, I don't want to give the impression that I'm counting down the days to when I leave Romania. But I needed something with which to contrast the "time to learn Romanian" info, and that's the best I could think of for now. If you have a better idea, let me know.

Also, you'll note that the "Total time in Romania" doesn't take into account the 6 month home assignment during the Spring and Summer of 2005. I'm sure there's a real easy math function to do that...but I'm too tired to mess with it right now.
