Funny memory of the week: I'll preface this by saying West Campus has a bit of a quirky personality. Not all the missionaries in both campuses can fit in the meeting room on Main Campus so about half of West Campus watches broadcasts of Devotionals in the Wyview Chapel instead of walking up to Main Campus (with me still?). There is a camera set up in the Wyview Chapel so they can show our congregation to the congregation on Main Campus. Last Sunday the Brother conducting the Devotional on Main Campus said something about hoping to find the broadcast reaching us in good condition and had the camera switch to show us.
What showed up on the screen however, was the entire front to rows of Elders in our chapel sprawled out on the pews pretending to be fast asleep. Ties loose, arms flopping around, head back, mouth open, the whole nine yards. It got a pretty good laugh. Honestly, if it had been any other speaker, we probably would have been reprimanded. The speaker that night, however, was Mary Ellen Edmunds who thought it was hilarious and had the camera flash back to us several times, and each time the Elders obliged with increasing shows of sleepiness. If you ever get a chance to hear her speak DO IT. She is so funny and incredibly inspiring.
I am continuing to learn and grow. I still can't speak Spanish to save my life (unless you want to hear me recite Joseph Smith's account of the First Vision (anyone?)). But what I am learning about is the Doctrine of Christ, the Love of God, gaining a sensitivity to the Spirit, and how important it is to be truly converted to Christ. Hopefully I'll learn how to express all that in Spanish. In the meantime, I will continue to wonder what an indirect object pronoun is and why my teacher keeps saying Eso!
I have much more to say, but not much more times. So you will just have to continue to wonder who put who in a blender.
Side note- our cafeteria and bookstore are giant trailers in the Raintree parking lot. They're pretty great.
