International week at M*

This week is international week at M*.  This means there may be some posts in languages other than English.  There may be some stories of spreading the Gospel beyond the United States.  The goal, I believe, is to celebrate the growing non-American nature of the Church of Jesus Christ.  Given that this is a volunteer blog, things may not go according to any strict plan.

Personally, I am doing my small part for international week by doing some volunteering.  On Sunday, I signed up to help translate family history information from other languages into English for my stake.  This week I will also offer to become a volunteer translator for a local hospital.  I have no idea yet how either of these efforts will go, but I’ll let you know.

About Geoff B.

Geoff B has had three main careers. Some of them have overlapped. After attending Stanford University (class of 1985), he worked in journalism for several years until about 1992, when he took up his second career in telecommunications sales. In 1995, he took up his favorite and third career as father. Soon thereafter, Heavenly Father hit him over the head with a two-by-four (wielded by the Holy Ghost) and he woke up from a long sleep. Since then, he's been learning a lot about the Gospel. He still has a lot to learn. Geoff's held several Church callings: young men's president, high priest group leader, member of the bishopric, stake director of public affairs, media specialist for church public affairs, high councilman. He tries his best in his callings but usually falls short. Geoff has five children and lives in Colorado.

  1. I think a renewed focus on missionary work is something I am hoping to see out of international week.
