More from Mon. Jan. 20th

(From Parker's email to his Dad)
I have an awesome story I can share with you. So in the guaguas, you know those buses I showed you guys?  Anyways, I was in that today, and some guy started talking to me about the church. I couldn't really understand his spanish very well so I asked him where he was from. He is from Haiti, and spoke fluent French. I told him I spoke a little and to try that, because he was learning his spanish. He started doing that, and for some reason, I could understand him completely, and better yet, I remembered the important French and could respond! Not very well, but I could! Plus it helped that it is really close to Spanish so I could use Spanish because he understood that. But me and my companion taught him about the gospel and gave him a pamphlet as he left. He isn't in our area, but we did the right thing. Just reminded me of you, because you always were willing to do the right thing, no matter what the circumstances. It was really awkward to talk in a guagua with a bunch of random people listening, but I knew it was the right thing to do. Hopefully he continues to learn about the gospel from other missionaries in his zone. Anyways, I love you dad. You are the best dad ever! Stay awesome!

Your Son,
