Having the ability to speak “Bahasa Indonesia” (Indonesian) definitely has its benefits in my private life as well as in my work life. I work as a hospice nurse, and I distinctly remember one of my patients who was a pastor from Indonesia. I overheard the patient and his wife speaking Indonesian to each other, so, I just started talking in Indonesian to them.
When the couple realized that I was Indonesian, they were so happy and excited that they had an Indonesian there right by their side. It’s just such a beautiful thing when people connect with each other through culture and language.
