"Jaycie, will you pray?" (Novenber 21, 2016)

This week has felt like an eternity, probably because so much happened in it!
Service - Thanksgiving we get to help set up a quincenera #servicegoals

"El tuvo una vaca con asthma le dio medicina y estuvo bien feliz por tres dias y entonces despues murio."
"Si, pero corrio bien feliz!!"

("He had a cow with asthma that he gave medicine and it was very happy for three days and then after died."
"Yes, but it ran very happy!!"
Some things are just better in Spanish)

Spanish investigators
Jesus says, "Las preguntas *holds up el folleto*, las respuestas *holds up the Libro de Mormon*
("The questions *pamphlet*, the answers *Book of Mormon*"
Seriously though. It's so much funnier in Spanish.)

"Tienes novio?"
"Oh. Pues tu debes tener muchos pretendientes."
("Do you have a boyfriend?"
"Oh well you should have many suitors.")

Baptismal Invites
"Seguira el ejemplo de Jesucristo..."
"Claro, claro que si!"
"..y ser bautizado.."
"Ah, eso yo no se!"
"Cree que esas cosas son verdaderas??"
"Pues, porque no? Es de Dios!"
"Okay! Entonces, seguira el ejemplo de Jesucristo..."
"Claro, claro que si!"
"..y ser bautizado.."
"Ah, eso yo no se!"

"Will you follow the example of Jesus Christ..."
"Of course!!"
"...And be baptized?"
"Now that I don't know!"
"Do you believe these things are true?"
"Well why not! They're of God!"
"Okay! Then will you follow the example of Jesus Christ"
"Yes of course!"
"...and BE BAPTIZED"
"Now that I don't know!"

me - "Dangit I poured too much mustard"
Jace (4yo) - *in the background* "I wanna play the game!"
Bro Taylor - "Life is full of disappointments Jace."

*small freak out moment*

me - "Ohmygosh I thought you were talking to me because my name is really close to his."
Sis Taylor - "Oh really? What is it?"
me - "Jaycie"
Bro Taylor - "Ha! Sorry about that."

*fastforward to end of meal*

Sis Taylor - "Isn't that cool? Her name is like yours!
Bro Taylor - "Sister Hernandez, will you -"
Jace - "Jaycie, will you pray?"

Little kids are fun. Here's to hoping he doesn't blurt out my name at church.

And then the hurdle. So for a while now I've been really excited about starting up a Spanish group here in White Salmon. And we were getting so close! Then Saturday we get a text from the Zone Leaders telling us that they have to go to Hood River, no exceptions. The rest of the day we were running back and forth trying to get anyone to give them rides, to figure out who was going etc. The next morning we were up bright and early in a meeting with Bishop trying to figure out all what to do. Then we ran back and forth trying to get everyone where they needed to be. It will certainly be interesting to see how it all pans out but I am willing to do whatever the Lord needs me to do and am excited for what lies ahead :)
