Do You Speak Greek?

Little miracles happen everyday at the Hyde Park Chapel Visitors' Centre. Today we had a man come in from Greece who spoke almost no English. We struggled for 30 minutes to try to communicate with him including using Google translate and trying to reach a Greek speaking sister missionary serving in another area of London. As we were about to give up a member came in to go to the Self Reliance center upstairs. As he passed, Linda asked on a whim, "Do You Speak Greek?" He replied, "Sure, doesn't everyone." He wasn't from Greece but his father was. He helped us sort out the man who came in and made arrangements for him to come back and try to find another member of the stake who speaks Greek.

Jane is also from China. She had come into the VC a year ago for a tour and then moved back to China. As soon as she returned she came into the centre and requested the lessons. Another sister and her daughter from Madrid, Spain were baptized following Jane. Another sister was baptized the next week also from China.

We were treated to a performance of "The Mouse Trap" by J. Paul and Alessandra as our Christmas Present. It was awesome! The Mouse Trap is the oldest running play in the world. The week before we were able to see "Beautiful" the musical telling the life of composer and performer Carol King.
