Because Jake's spanish was so good, soon after arriving at the CCM he was put into a district of only Spanish speaking Latinos. He loved this new district!

From Jake's letter: "On the plane ride from Texas to Guatemala, I sat next to a Guatemalan lady and we talked for the whole three hours in Spanish. It was so amazing and for two of the three hours we talked about religion and eventually I told her about why there are so many churches today and the need for a modern day prophet. She took everything that I told her about the church very well and she is a very religious person who doesn't like any of the churches that she goes to very much. I gave her a pass-along card and she said that she would definitely look more into the church. This was such an amazing experience and I loved being able to teach her. Sharing the gospel is the best thing in the world. I have been striving to have the gift of charity and I feel that I am starting to get it. I felt sincere love for that lady that I had never met before because I knew that she was a child of God and that our Heavenly Father wants her to return to live with Him again. It felt so great to be able to help her and I can't wait to share this wonderful message with the rest of the people of Guatemala."
