So as I was writing a few letters, listening to my Joseph smith commentaries by Marion G Romney, I got a call from Elder Salgado, one of the assistants to the President. He told me…
”Hey Elder Snow, how are you?” (All of this is in Spanish by the way)
”Good what’s up?”
”Well, just calling to see if you were awake.”
”Hey, tell me about your district. Do you have any baptismal dates?”
”Yes! We have ten! 1 in Cerrito, 2 in Chinaca, and 7 in Calvario. They are each for the 16th, 10th and 23rd of February, their names are (etc etc etc)”
”Hey very good, it sounds like you are doing a very good job being district leader, however we need you to be a district leader in another location of the mission.”
”… I need you to be in Momostenango tomorrow at 1. You will be the district leader. See you there. Take care!”
And that was it. By tomorrow, I will be in the hardest zone in the mission. It is essentially scout camp. Hiking, not eating too much, weird showers that barely work, and possibly people speaking other languages. Actually the people there speak a language called Quiche. I think my Spanish is good enough to put a pause on it… Now I will be learning ancient Lamanite languages. How cool is that!
Wish me luck. I’m gonna need it. That being the case, I am super excited.
Remember 1 Nephi 3:7. I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded. For I know that the Lord giveth no commandment unto the children of men save he provideth a way for them that they may accomplish the thing that he commandeth them. (More or less) So! That being said… I’ll give it a try. Have a good week! Take it easy!

Blessings and prayers for your new mission!
