Elder Christopher Wahlquist, Elder Eric Garlock, Elder Nate Garlock
Christopher is our first grandchild and is serving in the France Toulousse Mission. Nate is our nephew and is serving in the same mission. Eric is another nephew and is serving in the Ukraine Donetsk Mission. All three of these young men entered the MTC on the same day - July 28, 2010. Thank you for your service!
Christopher and Nate are finally serving in the same city - Marseille.
We are now studying Romanian three times a week with a tutor from the MTC. We are finding it interesting and challenging. Because we are instructed to read Cartea lui Mormon every day in Romanian, pray twice a day in Romanian, sing a hymn in Romanian and study Romanian vocabulary words daily our jaws ache. Why do words need to be feminine or masculine? And do they really need three A's , each with it's own sound? And what's with the two T's and two S's? If we could just get everyone we meet to speak very, very slowly and say very simple things we might stand a chance.
