The amazing linguistic ability of members here
Yesterday in Liepaja, in the Relief Society conference, we had Latvian and Russian speakers. Sister Dance was on the stand and had a young sister translating for her and we had a young sister translating for us. These young women didn't miss a beat, translating from Latvian to English and then from Russian to English. This is quite common here and I am continually in awe of their ability. Especially given the fact that the Russian alphabet is very different than the Latvian or English alphabet.
