April 11, 2016- in Gonzalez Catan with Elder Tinoco

"It rained a little. It was super fun. We had a tournament with all the districts and my district destroyed"

So it was a pretty great week I’ll give you guys the highlights. first of all a super cool thing while me and my comp were eating 2 dollar pizzas in the apartment for lunch. we watched a talk from elder Holland talking in the mtc. He talked about Preach my Gospel and the how important it is that we don’t just memorize the lessons but that we know the doctrine. Andrew probably would recognize it. He gives an example of two elders who contacted a lady in Ukraine like 50 years ago and got rejected. They ask why and she explains how her baby had died and when she went to a church for spiritual help the pastor told her that her baby was condemned and she was too she didn’t want anything to do with churches after that experience. The elders then opened up to Moroni 8 and explained where her baby really was. She then got baptised and is a legend in Ukraine. We went to a lesson the other day- I was with one of the asistants in divisiones. The lady tells us that her grandma and her baby had died. It was really just like the story that elder Holland told. I pulled out Mornoi 8 and Alma 40 and it was really spiritual and awesome. The next thing was Daniel. He is the only person in his family that isn’t a member of the church. The Lord has humbled him a lot recently so he is really ready to hear us. He was a reference from an excommunicated bishop. (the ex bishop is a good guy working back to become a member and everything) we didn’t think he was gonna make it to church because he can’t walk a lot. He just had surgery to remove his big toe. but his brother went and picked him up. He’s awesome. he’s from Lafere which is known for being a rough part of town. He looks like he’s from the rough part of town. It’s amazing to see how he just eats up the gospel. He reads every day without fail even though he can barely see right now without glasses. He’s awesome. I’m doing really good. I love you guys a lot!

1- The picture you sent us ---“it says ‘algun dia tus hijos preguntar├ín quien fue’. ‘One day your kids will ask who I was. I’m sorta the maradona of missionaries”
What is a maradona?

2- what's a tormenta blanca?
2 white storm. Where all the missionaries get together and just destroy one area for a day

3-how much does it cost to rent a soccer grass field?

3 - 500 pesos. 50 dollars. It was amazing. I’m a lot better on a bigger field.
