On the bright side

Recently, in the Vladivostok Russia Branch sacrament meeting, a new elder from Japan, Elder Nakamura, gave a short talk to introduce himself and bear his testimony.

All in attendance witnessed the fascinating phenomenon of a German elder listening to a Japanese elder speak in broken English, which was then translated into Russian so the members of the Russian congregation could understand. It was a marvelous experience to see the joining of these nationalities under one roof, all worshiping together in love and fellowship.
