(Notes from Christmas Day phone call)
*They had 2 baptisms on Saturday, Dec. 22nd. A 9 yr old girl, and a 13 year old "golden" boy were baptized. Hermana Burner was able to play the piano at both baptisms.
*There is a mobile home park that houses mostly spanish speaking people. There is a part-member family that lives in one of the mobile homes and does not speak any english. Hermanas Chase and Burner were walking past their mobile home when the couple came out and called for them to come quickly. They were on the phone trying to handle a problem with the phone company, and were not able to communicate with them due to the difference in language. Hermanas Chase and Burner went inside and were on the phone taking care of the problem for them for about 1 1/2 hrs. Prior to this the non-member wife of the member-husband would always avoid the missionaries and not talk to them. She apologized for doing that.
*Hermanas Chase and Burner were at a dinner appointment where salmon was being served. Neither of the missionaries is fond of salmon, but Hermana Chase dislikes all seafood. She took the smallest piece she could find, and cut it up and spread it around on her plate. Hermana Burner's strategy was to take the smallest "burnt" piece of salmon and eat it.
