I learned Spanish while serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I lived in Honduras for sixteen months and taught the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Honduran people. I loved my time with them! Although I have not had the opportunity to use Spanish very often over the last six years, I have frequently prayed for God to send me a Honduran friend. I thought this could help me practice Spanish and give me reminders of what a blessing it was to serve a mission. Well, God answers our prayers sometimes in ways we can't even imagine. I was recently blessed with the opportunity to be friends with not just one Honduran, but eleven! I have been teaching them English, and we've been spending a lot of time together. Josh and I (along with some wonderful members of our ward) are having Spanish Family Home Evenings twice a month, and I am translating and teaching in the Primary. My Spanish is getting better because I use it so often. Blaine and Bekah are picking up on some Spanish too. Bekah thinks she is fluent, although she just makes things up ;) I think that she is pretty amazing. God sure is good to us, isn't He?
