: Wow, your a mayimbe! That's great. I was there during 94 and 96 and I must say that it was people like you that screwed over the mission. I don't remeber you very well but I don't think that you should be proud for having been part of a group ( gang? ) of missionaries that stood for disobedience. The mission really meant a lot to those of us that were there to work and people like you nearly ruined it for all of us and it left a legacy for other missionaries that helped to nearly destroy the entire misson. I hope you and your little band of buddies can get together soon and reminisce to your hearts content. I hope that you are proud of yourself. For anyone else who reads this, feel free to email me your responses. I'll respond to anyone.
Folkman...this is a pretty negative message here...from what i see brad boyer was only looking for some friends from the mission as i see you have inquired as well. As you can see Elder Boyer wrote "Yo soy El Mayimbe" (if you understood his personality you might not have written your note to him) not Yo soy uno de los mayimbes de la mission este quienes trataron destruir la mission...We both know there was disobedience in our mission but that goes on in all missions of the world my friend. as for me i knew all of those guys you're rebuking and most of them weren't that disobedient. I tried to befriend all types of missionaries and became friends with most everybody...i had a great mission and felt that i worked hard and when it was time to have a good time, i did. My mission was a spiritual highlight of my life..Pres. Hinds helped me imensley to gain spirituality as i was serving. we are all imperfect.
Maybe there are some regrets from the "gang" as you put it. I personally don't think those guys were making an effort to be disobedient...
We all are also entitled to our own opinions i suppose...Maybe i just didn't think your entry here was appropriate for this website...let the bad things go...forgive and forget and your life will mejorar--
