We chose to go to Santa Paula for church.  Dell thought it was at 10:00. The drive was beautiful.  We parked and I said there are a lot of cars here for a 10:00 church.  We were there about 8 minutes early. Sure enough the sacrament was finishing up.  It had started at 9:30. We went in late. It was a good meeting and fun to see 4 sister missionaries who we saw this past week.  One of our YSA's mother from a couple of years ago came up and introduced herself.  I remembered her at our YSA Relief Society.  That was fun.  Since we didn't take the sacrament we decided to go back to Ventura and attend the Spanish branch.  I asked President to make sure if they wanted us to say anything, to tell them I didn't speak Spanish.  We were able to sit in the congregation.  I liked singing in Spanish.  It is easier to pronounce the words because it is slower.  The return missionary spoke very fast.  
No,  I didn't understand very much. 
I was writing in my journal tonight when Dell came in to share a comment from an email.  He then told me the branch president in Santa Maria was from Argentina.  He called earlier which I didn't know.  I can't believe it. We've been asked to speak in Sacrament Meeting the end of August.  Do you wonder why he didn't tell me?  Do you think he was trying to figure out a way?  Dell told the branch president that I don't speak Spanish.  The branch president said no problem that they have translators.  Oh goodness I better find time and at least get my testimony down. 
Any prayers would be appreciated.
