The Al Lino Connection

These are 4 of the best missionaries ever! We had the opportunity to have the Assistants and Office Elders over for lunch today. With Elder Hansen going home and the upcoming week going into transfer mode, we knew this might be the last opportunity to get these 4 together. I know I've said this over and over, but they are such outstanding young men. They're smart and fun, but most of all, they have solid testimonies of Jesus Christ and the Gospel. They're so wise beyond their years.

We may have visited for a bit longer than the suggested hour meal time, but I'm sure it's because we were taking care of some mission business. In the course of our conversation we discovered that Elder H's dad served his mission in Jamaica and was companions with Al Lino! If you aren't Tongan or didn't live in Hacienda Heights in the 80's, that name won't mean a thing. But Al was a regular at our house. He played football on the high school team and spent time with his football buddy who lived across the street but managed to find his way to our house around dinnertime. He was the only member of the Church in his family and could use moral support, so we were happy to have him be a part of our lives. Marc wrote him regularly while Al was serving his mission.
