The Gift of Tongues!

Some fun facts about my new area:

There are Elders that also serve in the ward and one of them is Elder Davis from Nevada! The wards given us some cheek about being siblings, etc. but there isn't any relation that we can tell. Amazingly, though, he knows Daniel Rust really well! Practically grew up with him. Such a small world.

There is the most beautiful Argentine family in our ward: the Abrechts. They should be models and they have four adorable children and an even more adorable accent. I spoke with Sister Abrecht all about your mission and she loved it. She loved that I knew a bit of Castillano.

Some fun stories this week:

I spoke to a young man from France (in French) and experienced the enabling power of the Spirit. As we were speaking I had many old words come back to my mind and understood him much better than I should have considering it's been over three years since I really spoke it. I'm reading the French BOM and leaflets whenever I get the chance and I hope the Lord gives me more opportunities to testify to our French-speaking brothers and sisters!

I had an amazing experience on a bus where I started the conversation with a Persian boy (who was really English but has a Persian father)...that I will have to relate next week. Blast this time thing!

This is the view from Molly's third floor "flat." Looks green and quaint, I think.
