During Language Study I translated out "Onward Christian Soldiers" into English, and IT IS SO COOL!
Con valor marchemos #159 (side note, the first 2 lines of the first verse are also the words of the chorus)
We, the hosts of Jesus, march with courage,
with the weapons of truth and light.
The Lord will be out great general, with His banner displayed high.
When the charge is sounded, Satan flees from us.
Firmly, then, we march, we wait no longer.
Full of terror, Hell's foundations tremble.
To the Lord we sing hymns of praise.
We go forth with the Savior;
together we march, without any fear.
We are all one in truth, hope, faith and charity.
Onward, then, brothers, to the rhythm of the sound,
while singing together the triumphal song.
All will honor the great, eternal King;
Angels and men together will sing.
Isn't that so neat? Gives me goose bumps. In some instances I think I like the hymns in Spanish better than in English, good stuff, man.
Today turned out to be quite interesting, but we were able to get the interview for Guissell done as well, so she and her sister can be baptized next Saturday. Yay!
Random fact, E Comin is from
Alberta, Canada. He's
also the only Canadian that we know of here in the Oeste and Este missions, we
don't know about Tegucigalpa
or Comayaguela. So he's pretty unique!
Also found a lady that sells turtle eggs, and they are quite expensive. I can't say I really have great desire to eat turtle eggs, but it was cool that that's an option here. I have no idea what the turtle egg market is like here, have to do some research on that.
