Elder Matthew Whittle-- March 20, 2012

Que paso!

Remember when we partied in the hospital and at home when I got my surgeries. That's weird to think that was a year ago already. Time flies eh.

Oh man that's so cool that Trude already left to Argentina! He's going to love it. We have a guy from Argentina in our Branch, and he's super funny. They have a really neat accent. It almost sounds Italian. Pretty cool that he's heading down there. What part of Argentina is he in again. I can't quite remember, and Kaleigh had to get surgery too? Man what's going on haha. Hope she's doing ok.

Man you have no idea how many people have that doubt about their family is Catholic. We find so many people that want to be baptized, and come to church, but their parents are strong catholics and don't want them to do it. It's tough, but there is a perfect story for that in the Book of Mormon when Ammon goes to King Lamoni and converts him, and then him and Lamoni go to free his friends from prison and they meet up with Lamoni's father who tells King Lamoni to kill Ammon, but Lamoni refuses and then later on Lamoni's father is converted as well. I'm sure it wasn't easy for King Lamoni to go against what his father wanted, but he stuck true to what he knew to be true, and then God softened the heart of his father so that he could come to the truth as well.

Well things are going good here in Solana. We got some new people that we're going to try to pick up as investigadors so we'll see how that goes. I'll probably have a new companion coming up soon. Transfers are in two weeks, and Elder Zaitzeff has already been here for five so it's probably time for him to go. He ends his mission in two more transfers, and then by the time September arrives I'll be the oldest Spanish missionary in the mission. That's going to be really weird. They didn't have any Spanish missionaries come in for almost a whole year. Pretty crazy haha. Well Love ya all, and hope you have a great week! Que Dios Les Bendiga.

Con amor,
Elder Whittle
