Hasta Ver

Jon saw several people at the MTC who he already knew. Here he’s with Elder NeSmith and Elder Schuerman from the Montgomery, AL Stake, who have also been called on Spanish-speaking missions.

Elder NeSmith, Elder Schuerman, and Elder Belyeu at the Provo, UT MTC. January 2011.

This is an extract from Elder NeSmith’s journal:

We just finished “Hasta Ver” as a zone. It’s where we sing “God Be with You Til We Meet again” in Spanish to the district that is leaving (today, it was Elder Belyeu’s district). It really was awesome. After singing, someone tells the story of Brigham young and Heber C. Kimball leaving on their mission to Great Britian. Then, accordingly, we shout “Hurrah FOR ISRAEL!” 3 times (loud, louder and make-the-windows-bust loud). It was really cool. A great bonding experience. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Who’d have thought you could cram 28 guys in a bedroom meant for 4, shout Hasta Ver and Hurrah for Israel and STILL be able to feel the spirit. Only in the TRUE church.
