Letter Home: Weakness becomes a strength

Want to know something cool?  I think my speech impediment has helped me learn [Japanese].  My Japanese vocabulary and grammar is very limited.  As such I have to take my ideas and communicate them with what vocabulary and grammar I know. Often I have to think of a different way to communicate my concepts from what I thought.  Like how I explained resurrection as mentioned in last week's email.  I have had to do this in English because I could not pronounce the word I thought [of] to communicate my idea.
