Every interpreter's nightmare

Editora Fiel is one of the finest missions works I have ever been associated with (click here for a "translated" version of their website). Rich and Pearl Denham have given their lives to making Christ known in Brazil (and other Portuguese speaking countries) for more than 50 years. It has been my privilege to speak 3 times at the annual Brazilian Fiel conference for church leaders. The last time I was there was 2006. This clip is from the last day of that meeting. Eros Pasquini is the main interpreter for the conference. In addition to being a faithful pastor, he is the best interpreter I have ever worked with. At about 1:45 into the clip I begin to express my appreciation to him for his excellent work during the conference, and have a little fun in the process. If you have ever been an interpreter or worked with one, you will probably appreciate the humor.
