This situation reminded me of a group of women that I met last month. These six beautiful women just recently left for Cambodia to reach out to those involved in the sex industry and show them the love of Jesus for the next two years. They don't yet know the language and a few of them have talked about the language barrier being difficult to deal with when they just want to love on the people!
Praying that the language would be learned quickly and that the Lord would give them opportunities to encourage and love the people without words. Also praying for the sweet little girl as she has her surgery soon.
