Here is little Elder Tyson, living the dream in the mission of
Champions, and what a week it was folks. Some intense moments,
dropping the hammer on investigators, teaching the Word of Wisdom,
eating Rabbit, being insulted on a bus, finding a naming a pet hamster
that wondered onto our balcony, giving amazing investigators to the
sisters, eating a famous paella that has won a Spain competition seven
years running, finishing the Gospels of the New Testament, hearing of
a Man's reformed Bible, his vision of EVERYTHING, and his plan to save
the world. (And if you call now, we will include a second magic bullet
free, just pay shipping and handling)
And almost all, will be explained in the email to come, so buckle up
friends, and hold on to your children, because this is going to be a
Yes I ate rabbit, and an amazing paella. Rabbit is very popular. I
loved it, in reality, tasted like chicken, the downer, tons of bones.
But it was great!! Thumper just couldn't say something nice, but he
sure tasted nice!!!!
The insults on the bus were hilarious, this old man was just telling
us how sick he was of seeing us all of the time. We just told him we
didn't understand Spanish and got off the bus. He was very frustrated.
He needs the Gospel.
The story about the man and his reformed bible, can't be done justice
in email. I will tell the details back in the states..... I have it on
the recorder!! Hilarious.
Finally Oreo, our pet hamster..... Here is the scoop. We get home last
night and our neighbor comes by and says, "hey you better get your
hamster, he got out" we were like, what hamster? He said he saw it on
our balcony, and he has a cat so we should be careful. We assured him
that we had no hamster but that we would investigate. Then the hunt
was on. I pulled out my voice recorder and a bucket and we went
looking. He was hiding in the corner, all shy and chubby. We coaxed
him out, and we put him in a box. Our piso is connected with three
other balconies, it wasn't ours, or the other two neighbors, and the
other didn't answer. So we couldn't just leave him, all though my past
life would say other wise. To me it was a mouse, and we needed a
shovel and the back mountain.... But we gave him a name, and resolved
to hold onto him for the night, search for the owner the next day, and
if not, give him to a member to be the ward mascot!!!! We took some
selfies.... Attached....... But the owner came. He was in the
shower.... He said his four year old was devastated, to lose pearl......
Pearl.... His name is Oreo...... It was like my best friend was
moving..... Sure, it was only two doors away, but we had grown such a
bond..... I hope that we can still visit.... He was like a son to
me...... But we press on...... Anyways.....
While it had its ups and downs, it was a satisfying week..... Can't do
it justice in an email.... But I hope you caught a glimpse of a goofy
elder in Terrassa.....
P.S. This by no means signifies that I want a hamster, or any other
