This week we had a special church meeting, and we even had our Colombian investigator come. I imagine it was pretty interesting for this man to watch a bunch of old white men give talks and then a tremendous chorus sing in English...yea there's no Spanish translation for the Mormon tabernacle choir. Watching the conference in a different language is different, the translating is a good time. Sometimes the person translating gets really emotional and they quickly switch to someone else, and it's also really interesting when they use something that doesn't translate in Spanish. Like "walk the walk, and talk the talk." That leaves everyone in the audience really confused.
The rest of the day we spent playing volleyball in the church, between sessions. There was even a little room set up for the Gringos and the Latinos who think they speak English. It was a great weekend, until next week,
