Menorca is fun!Hi everyone, Elder Jonson here, this week has been fun!! To start off a fun little experience Elder Dixon and I had yesterday. We started sacrament meeting as normal, we were seated on the "stand" to bless the sacrament. The Branch President got up and gave the announcements and we sang the opening hymn. He got up gave the little talk of branch business and sat down and the sacrament hymn started playing. He then leaned over to my companion and said something. Elder Dixon then turned to me with a grimace and said, "Well, we've got talks." So we blessed the sacrament and I got up first while he went back and translated for some English tourists and then we switched. We literally had about 4 minutes to think about what we were going to talk about. Not something that happens every day! But I guess it went ok because nobody said anything and when you talk about Jesus, mixed with sharing scriptures you can't go wrong...Anyway, gotta love mission life!!
In other news the work here is great, we have been having a lot of member visits recently and it apparently has been helping because we are getting more and more people in church!!! Hopefully the work continues forward!!! Anyway I hope you all have a great week like the one I'm going to have! Remember to be strong and of good courage and the Lord will help you in any challenge!
