Pelaiah, a native of Zimbabwe and friend of Chase and Josue joins us. Yvann, our first ever guest and close friend, co-hosts this fun conversation with Josue. Pelaiah, Yvann, and Josue each share their stories of moving to America in 2002, interacting with parts of American culture for the first time, adopting different parts of the American lifestyle, the role of their parents in childhood, and what Ivorian, Congolese, Zimbabwean, and American culture can learn from one another.
We discuss coping with feeling like an outsider, how they mixed the two cultures, cultural difference, respect, favorite memories that other Africans might be able to relate to, Yvann’s premarital experience and mixing cultures with his wife, and the positive parts of our culture just being a glimpse of Kingdom culture.
