Pre-Call Surprise

Well surprise surprise - Roger and I, we are getting to be old we went to bed at about 9:15 last night(Friday). Well, the phone rings about 9:30, and it's Elder Rich from Pucallpa !!

How exciting !! He sounded so good and happy. The connection was so, was hard to catch every word. It wasn't cutting out, but it sounded like he was talking in a tunnel or something.

He had more of an accent than I have ever heard before, and sounded a little sing songy (Jungle Spanish).

He said he's back safe in Pucallpa, from the zone leader meetings. I told him that Evelyn said that one of her friends saw him, and talked to him, and told her that he was speaking JUNGLE Spanish. He laughed and laughed.

He said that President Steven Snow from the 70, will be coming to Pucallpa on the 23rd and 24th of this month. He was SO excited for that.

He said their zone has 53 fechas (dates for baptism) planned for May. He said they will most definitely hit 505 (the mission goal). He started lapsing into Spanish intermixed with English, and it was so fast and loud, and with the connection, we missed alot of what he was saying, but the gist was, that he is so very happy.

He is going to call about 8pm (our time) on Sunday evening, so everyone is invited. We will be having homemade Chicken Noodle soup and rolls. Come on over :)
