You can all call me translator Hunt now :)
Oh come all ye faithful! Hello!
is going pretty well here in Laredo! Just to start.. remember how I
said that my area was the border? Well.. all these lights are Mexico,
and I was standing in the middle of our area.
Okay I love it here. I've always loved Laredo but.. I really love it! I
definitely hope this is my last area and I just stay here for the next
little story from church yesterday. There is a family here in the
English branch that was asked to speak in church, but they only speak
Spanish! So the mom asked me if I would be able to translate her talk
for her. I thought she meant for me to write it down in English then she
can try to say it up there.. nope. She definitely wanted me to stand at
the pulpit with her and repeat after her in English. My Spanish skills
were put to the test! But yes I was actually able to do it. I stood in
front of everyone for about 25 minutes repeating a paragraph after the
sister said it. It was pretty cool. I definitely had to be on my toes
and make sure I was actually listening to what she said so that I didn't
forget anything. I found that I have a problem with getting distracted
REALLY easily. It's a challenge, but I concentrated really hard and I
actually never got distracted. Even with missionaries making faces at
of the week..hmm. The family of five came to church AGAIN! They are
progressing really well! I'm so excited for them! Keep them in your
This is a side note.. I definitely rapped for my entire zone. Peer pressure. That's all I have to say.
da da daaa! We get to go to Corpus Christi again this week for the
Christmas conference! Here's the thing though.. it's a 3 hour drive and
it starts at 8. Yes. We have to wake up at like 3:30. But guess who's
the lucky driver?? Yes that would be me. We better have some loud music
and cold air or something. It's going to be an adventure!
Okay well I'll leave the really exciting stuff for next time!
You can't see me, but it's starting to look like Christmas!!
Now you can see me, with our Christmas sweaters!
Zone activity during our zone meeting.. I still don't know why this happened!
