August 29, 2016 translating

Hey fam, its been another great week as a missionary. This past week we had a General Authority come and visit our mission. Elder De Hoyos from the 70 and his wife. We had a zone conference with them and they dont speak very much english so i was their personal translator! I didnt know translating was so tiring. I translated all of the english talks to spanish for them and when Sister De Hoyos gave her talk to all the missionaries i translated from spanish to english for everyone.Translating is a tiring job, It was a super cool experience and a great meeting!

So as you found out from the grape vine we had a baptism this past week and this wasnt my first one. I appreciate mom shredding me in a loving way through via email. The reason i havent shared my baptism experiences before is because words dont do it justice and they are pretty sacred to me. But this past Saturday Parker Wallace got baptized. He is a 10 year old from a part member family that is coming back into activity in the church. Coolest family every. I love them all!! Ive grown super close to them over the past couple of months and seen them all progress in the gospel as they have come back to church. One of Parkers older brothers Zac got the priesthood recently and was able to baptize him. Me and Elder Major were put in the right place at the right time to be able to help this family out. 

Love you all have a great week!

***Yes I had heard thru my brother Matt that he had a baptism this week, we were excited that finally the work was progressing, but our knucklehead missionary kind of overlooks things that happen in his mission as he writes us each week.  ITs good to know he is out there serving not just for the stats :)
