In my "off" hours, I am trying to learn Spanish. For a semi-bright person, you would think this would come with a little ease. But no, I have not been that blessed.
We also work with/encourage our Latino missionaries to learn English. English will change their life in years to come. Many are taking up the challenge. As part of the mission requirements, each missionary is supposed to email Keith every week with a report. Here are a couple of emails where courageous Elders tried to write Keith in English.
