HISTORIA PERSONAL DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO, 1975

Provo, Utah, USA August 2, 1975

Por el Elder Freddy Desposorio

PERSONAL HISTORY OF FREDDY ENRIQUE DESPOSORIO CUBAS:

(Recopilacion de mi: "Missionary Diary", Tomo I, Pagina 1)

Siendo exactamente las 10:30 pm de la noche [del 2 de Agosto de 1975], quisiera exhortarme y expresar mis sentimientos desde aquí del "Language Training Mission" (Misión de Entrenamiento [capacitación] de Lenguas), Brigham Young University [desde la Universidad de Brigham Young], en la ciudad de Provo, Utah. Para esto quisiera sintetizar el comienzo de Mi Vida.

Nací un 4 de Febrero de Mil Novecientos Cincuentaiséis, y actualmente tengo 19 años y 6 meses [de edad]. Mis padres son Dionicio Desposorio Urcia y Rosa A. [Amelia] Cubas de Desposorio. Mi lugar de nacimiento es el país de Perú en la ciudad de Trujillo. Mis padres fueron bautizados en la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Días [la Iglesia Mormona] un 10 de Mayo de 1963; un mes después, pasó a ser bautizada mi hermana Margarita Haydee Desposorio C. [Cubas] quien es 1 1/2 año mayor que yo.

En vista que yo no tenía los 8 años de edad para ser bautizado, pasaron los años y fuí bautizado [en la Iglesia Mormona] el primero de Noviembre de 1969, luego después, obtuve mi Sacerdocio, y no relato las fechas, por estar ya en las primeras páginas de este diario: Página "My Personal History".

Mi familia consta de 7 personas, mis padres y cinco hijos que son: La primera, Margarita Haydeé que nació el 24 de Octubre de 1954. Luego yo, Freddy Enrique. Tercero es mi hermana Ruth Marisol que nació el 21 de Marzo de 1963. Después viene mi hermana Gloria Esperanza nacida el 2 de Diciembre de 1965. Por último viene mi hermano Wilmer Eduardo que es del 23 de Noviembre de 1967. Todos nacimos en la ciudad de Trujillo. Mi padre es Profesor de Matemáticas, titulado de la Universidad Ncional de Trujillo, y mi mamá profesora de Ciencias Sociales y Domésticas.

A los pocos meses de nacer, en 1956, mi padre fué nombrado Gobernador del Pueblo y Valle de Viru durante el Gobierno democratico de Manuel Prado Ugarteche. Es de decir que mi padre cumplio una funcion excelente como gobernador, ya que era novedoso ver a mi padre en aquel entonces abogar ante el Parlamento capitalino por la ejecucion de obras publicas modernas para su pueblo. Entre las obras que logro durante su gestion como gobernador fueron la inauguracion de su flamante auto-pista desde la carretera Panamericana hasta el centro del Pueblo conocido como la Avenida Viru. Otra gran obra inaugurada fue su Planta Electrica y su Centro Escolar Primario. Es de recalcar que mi padre siguio los pasos politicos de mi abuelo Manuel Desposorio Pulido quien fue uno de los fieles Apristas Viruneros, un politico activo, que padecio persecucion a raiz de la Masacre contra los Apristas en 1932 durante la Revolucion de Trujillo. Mi padre fue mas cauteloso y fue mas bien un politico intelectual. Al surgimiento de Fernando Belaunde en 1963 como Presidente del Peru, mi padre se convirtio en Accion Populista, militancia que lo tiene hasta el dia de hoy.

Estudié mi Kinder Garden en una escuelita de la calle Yoque Yupanqui de la ciudad de Trujillo, y mi transición (6 años de edad) en la Escuela Jardín de la Calle Zela de la ciudad de Trujillo. Mi primaria lo realizé en la Escuela "Enrique de Guimaraes # 280" que sigue funcionando en la Calle Pizarro, en el centro de la ciudad, al frente de la Iglesia San Francisco y al lado de la Catedral de Trujillo de la misma ciudad, a excepción de mi primer trimeste del primer año de Primaria que lo empecé en la Escuela de Primaria de Celendín, Cajamarca por motivos de los nombramientos de ambos de mis padres como Profesores a Celendín.

Mi estudios Secundarios los realizé solamente en la Gran Unidad Escolar "José Faustino Sánchez Carrión" de Trujillo de 1968 a 1972 terminando mis estudios a los 16 años de edad. Durante mi época como Colegial, en mi tercer año, 1970, tuve la oportunidad de ser admitido para ingresar al Colegio Militar "Ramón Castilla". Pasé todos los éxamenes de Admisión, pero al final mi madre cambió de parecer, y se asustó de inculcarme en la carrera Militar. En mi 4to y 5to ano, debido a mi talla, siempre fui admitido a formar parte de la escolta de Honor de mi Colegio, eramos 6 personas y uno adelante llevando la bandera bicolor nacional. A veces yo llevaba la bandera, y a veces estaba entre los 6 llevando el rifle. Para mi lo mas vibrante era desfilar el 27 de Julio en la gran Parada Militar que se realizaba en el Centro de Trujillo.

En mi último año de Secundaria, 1972, me enrrolé al plan de Servicio Militar Voluntario que ofrecía el Ejército Peruano a los estudiantes por un año durante el gobierno del General Juan Velazco Alvarado, que se llamaba "Reemplazos Críticos". Allí asistí con mis amigos, compañeros de estudios de la GUE, una vez por semana, todos los miércoles, y los sábados mensualmente. Al final de año, me gradué como Soldado de Artillería y Morteros de la Reserva del Perú, y tuve que cumplir junto con mis otros compañeros de clase, una Campaña de entrenamiento de Guerra por un mes en el desierto. Recuerdo como me extrañaron mis padres, y me recibieron como a un veterano de Guerra; de igual forma fuimos recibidos por la gente cuando se nos hizo un desfile en la plaza de armas el mismo día de nuestra llegada, y yo con mi rifle, mi uniforme, mi casco y sentado en los camiones del ejército y la gente aplaudiendo, incluyendo mi papá que de casualidad lo vi entre la muchedumbre.

Mis mejores amigos de estudios secundarios fueron, Rubén Darío Chacón, con quien congeniamos y nos respetamos mucho, y con quien desde la primaria estuvimos a punto de entrar al Monasterio de Arequipa para ser Curas, habiendo llegado a inscribrinos correctamente con el Párroco, asistido a capacitaciones y seminarios de preparación y orientación vocacional, y comprado todas nuestras listas de ropa y maletas, pero que al final mi mamá lloró junto conmigo porque había cambiado de parecer.

Otro buen amigo de la GUE fué Jaime Goicochea, que caminábamos juntos para ir y regresar del Colegio a nuestro barrio "Chicago". Tuve otro dos o tres buenos amigos, como un tal Cubas que nos tratábamos como primos, y me defendía de los amigos que querían pelear.

En cuanto a mi profesor mas predilecto, lo ví a un tal Profesor Sagástegui, que me enseñaba Historia del Perú, le decían "Serrano", por su forma de expresarse. Otro buen Profesor, fué "Muñequita", era mi Profesor de Física, un gran maestro, y por último tenía un buen Profesor de Literatura, "El loco Vallejo", porque era muy filósofo y nos llenaba de filosof1a y de pensamientos, así como era un gran poeta y nos recitaba grandes versos.

Entre mis familiares con quien jugué desde mi infancia, están mi primo hermano Carlos Vilela Desposorio que siempre me hacía reír, y yo también hasta que se ponía bien colorado. Otro gran primo hermano, fué mi primo Carlos Miguel Salcedo Cubas, con el jugué y nos enojábamos bromeando hasta que me vine a USA, pero al que más quise.

Entre mis tíos, el que más me impactó fué Jorge Luis Desposorio Urcia quien un día, a mi edad de 13 años, me regaló un pantalón color verde petróleo y una camisa blanca. Fué mi gran regalo, y así contento me iba a la Iglesia con más ánimo, y con la corbata que me obsequió mi papá, empezé a asistir al Sacerdocio con mucho entusiasmo.

Tuve un Padrino a quien frecuenté muy seguido, todas las semanas, se llama Segundo Mendoza, iba para que me de mi propina, y era tan bueno que siempre me lo daba sin que yo se lo pidiera, y me quiso mucho toda mi vida. Mi madrina fué su hija mayor, Rosa, quien solo me daba propina de vez en cuando, pero eran muy amables conmigo, y me querían mucho. Ellos vivían a unas cuadras de mi casa, en la calle Zela del barrio Chicago.

Mis casitas donde viví, traen muchos recuerdos. En mi infancia visité la casa de la Calle Grau de mi abuelo Pedro Cubas. Mi primera casita que recuerdo era la casita de la Calle Sucre, a unas cuantas casas de la actual donde viven mis padres y hermanitos ahora. Luego nos mudamos a la casita de la Calle Yahuarhuaca, que me acuerdo mucho, porque era muy chiquita. Allí viví desde los 5 años de edad. De allí partimos a Celendín en 1963, a mi edad de 7 años de edad. Luego regresamos con mi hermanita Margarita, solo los dos, para continuar los estudios en Trujillo, la razón fué porque era tiempo de escuela y mis padres no podían pedir Licencia, así que nos embarcaron a los dos, y fuimos llevando un chanchito arriba en el ómnibus, que le habían regalado a mi mamá una de sus estudiantes. El viaje consistió en dos días y una noche, salimos a las 10 de la manana de Celendín y llegamos a la ciudad de Cajamarca a las 6 de la tarde, luego tuvimos nuestra conección a Trujillo cual llegamos al siguiente dia a las 6 de la manana y que fue otro omnibus de la misma Agencia "Díaz" a quien los pilotos ya habían sido encomendados de como cuidarnos y tratarnos a estos dos niñitos de apenas 7 y 8 años de edad.

Mis padres contrataron para que nos pensionaran en la casa de mi Tí Graciela Cubas de Salcedo, hermana de mi mamá. Allí estuvimos pensionados por tres años. En 1967 mis padres compraron su casa en la Calle Suárez # 1031. Allí crecí por varios años hasta que mis padres compraron otra casa en la Calle Sucre # 656 de Chicago. Nunca me olvidaré que el día que habían señalado mis padres para la mudanza y que habían coordinado con mi tío Carlos Desposorio Urcia para que proveera su Camión, ese mismo día domingo a las 3 de la tarde, y que empezaba el Partido de Futbol del Mundial México 70 en que debutaba Perú, estábamos sentados listos para el inicio del partido, y en media mudanza, cuando se produjo el terremoto mas catastrófico de la historia del Perú, con epicentro en Chimbote, murieron mas de 30,000 personas. El susto fué grande, muchas Señoras llorando a fuera en la calle; no fué para menos; parecía el fin del mundo. Salí a caminar con mis amiguitos por el Centro y se veía la gente muerta, especialmente los que habían ido a la función Matinal del Cine, se veía como habían caído desde el segundo piso, unos aplastados por la desesperación, y otros por haberse saltado para salvar sus vidas. Fué terrible.

Durante mis últimos años como adolescente, los viví en una casota grande que compraron mis padres en el año de 1970, ubicada en la calle Sucre # 656, Trujillo, Perú. Viví allí hasta que vine a los Estados Unidos en Octubre de 1973. Allí siguen viviendo mis hermanos hasta verlos algún día.

My hair color is dark brown, and my hair is very curlie, just like my mother and her father. My eyes color are light brown, and I inherited this from my mother whose father's eyes color were green. My race is a mixture of white from my mother's side and Mestizo from my father's side. I have a Roman nose. My eyeslid are big and deep. I have a mole on the left side of my face, right on the middle of my cheek. My physical texture appearance is of a thin body. My shoe size is 9 1/2 and 10.

My health has always been healthy, with a lot of energy to run in Marathons, to swim, and to play basketball, thus representing to my High School and classroom. I have always been left handed, I kick and play football with my left leg, hammer with my left hand, shovel with my left hand, use the niddle to sew with my left hand, and many other things I do with my left hand, except that now I write with my right hand when my Kinder Garden teacher forced me to do so.

Cuan grande fueron mis bendiciones desde la fecha en que obtuve mi Sacerdocio en 1969, y desde cuando realmente fuí Presbítero del sacerdocio de Melquisedec, en que doy testimonio con corazón fuerte y amor profundo, que conocí, obtuve y aprendí muchas cosas maravillosas del señor, al haber trabajado y ayudado bastante en mi Rama [organización geográfica de la Iglesia mormona] de Trujillo III, como Maestro del sacerdocio de Melquisedec, y años después, al término de mi Secundaria en 1972, como Segundo Consejero de la Escuela Dominical, y luego como Secretario de mi Rama [organización geográfica de mi Iglesia], dando así al término [fin] de mi estadía en mi país del Perú, porque poco después, decidí venir a este país de los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, a seguir mis estudios superiores, con la ayuda de mis padres y familiares que me animaron.

Doy fe que en el transcurso de este esfuerzo que hize para demostrar mi amor al Señor, y mi humildad y manzo corazón, que trabajé con bastante ahinco al saber que todo venía de mi Padre Celestial. Es por eso que el Señor vió en mí para merecerme tales bendiciones, y ahora conocí este hermoso país, quien leyendo, viendo, y sintiéndolo, veo que este Estado [de Utah], es la tierra sagrada del señor.

El 10 de Octubre de 1973, llegué a este país de USA, donde un día antes dejé a mi país, mis padres, mi familia, y a mis amigos, con un propósito, de ganar muchas experiencias, pruebas, testimonio, y bendiciones del señor. Desde entonces, he pasado una vida de muchos esfuerzos para conseguir y lograr lo que Dios me puso en el camino, para lograrlo con mi fe en él. Para esto, pasé penas, tristezas, dolores, sufrimientos, accidentes, alegría, y maldiciones o tentaciones de Satanás. Pero yo he orado fuertemente a mi Padre Celestial porque sabía que él era el único quien me podía ayudar y consolar, por ser él el Camino, la Ley, la felicidad, y la Vida Eterna. Sé que si me hubiese dejado vencer por mis debilidades, hubiese sido el hombre mas caído en este mundo, pero Dios no lo quiso, por ver en este tierno hombre un camino de responsabilidad a su familia y al prójimo.

Es así como mi bendito Padre Celestial ha escuchado mis oraciones por la gran fe que tuve, y traté de demostrarlo, haciendo desde apartir, todo lo que un Mormón de los Santos de los Ultimos Días debe ser realmente, y empezé a tener y sentir su Espíritu Santo mas cerca a mí, y supe que nunca se apartaría, por la cual empezé a leer sus escrituras desde Mayo a Julio [de 1975], como el Libro de Mormón, que logré entenderlo y captar todo.

It was my Kinder Garden teacher who forced me to always use my right hand and she also pressured my mother to cut my ever long curly hair (my first haircut) when I was five years old. My oldest sister, Margarita is also a left handed and she still does.

 1 - DIARIO PERSONAL DE MANUEL DESPOSORIO PULIDO, 1978: Biografia de Victoriano Desposorio-Soles Pulido



BIOGRAFIA DE VICTORIANO DESPOSORIO-SOLES PULIDO

Viru, La Libertad, Peru 1978

Por Manuel Desposorio Pulido (hijo de Victoriano)

"...Mi padre, Victoriano Desposorio Pulido, un buen padre amoroso para sus hijos y su esposa, querido por los hijos de su pueblo, y con muchos compadres y ahijados fué muy estimado por todos ellos. Era un jóven varón de mucha empresa, de muchas esperanzas para el progreso de su pueblo, se dedicaba a la agricultura, sembraba mucho arroz, maíz, una cosecha tras otra, porque el agua abundaba en aquella época; las tierras donde el sembraba eran de su propiedad, adquirido por su trabajo, en común con mi querida madre; eran muy aspirantes a tener lo propio.

Compró (mi padre) un terreno en el ramal denominado "El Choloque", que fué de un Señor José Pulido Díaz, y otro que fué del Señor Manuel Macabeo Barrigas en el mismo ramal, (más) una huerta que fué de la Señora Inés Palacios, otra que fué de Raymundo Pulido con Baltazar Díaz, (y) otra de Miguel Desposorio (¿Pereda?, entonces su medio hermano).

Poseía todas estas propiedades, más los bienes de su padre, denominados "LOS PAREDONES", y otra que se llamaba "El Sanjón", y otra "La Soledad", en el barrio denominado Feneo. Todas estas tierras estaban sembradas de arroz en el año 1916 cuando fué asesinado mi padre.

Mi padre tuvo, ó eran 4 hermanos que se llamaron: Manuela Desposorio Pulido, Adolfo Desposorio Pulido, Victoriano Desposorio Pulido, y Manuela de la Asunción Desposorio Pulido.

Mis abuelos : (José) Santos Desposorio (Soles), y Jacinta Pulido (¿?) junto con sus 2 hijos primeros, murieron con una epidemia contagiosa; mi madre que los asistía no fué contagiada, por lo que pudo sobrevivir junto con mi padre (Victoriano Desposorio Pulido) y su hermana menor Manuela de la Asunción Desposorio (Pulido).

También, mi padre beneficiaba ganado vacuno y lanar para espender en el mercado. El ganado lo traía de la serranía, "Hacienda Carabamba" (hoy Distrito Carabamba, Provincia de Julcán, La Libertad), de los dueños Cirilo Avalos, quien les daba crédito sin ninguna garantía. Mi padre correspondía con el valioso pago, llevándole al mismo domicilio al valor que le correspondía; mi padre Victoriano se iba acompañado de un siervo fiel que se había críado con mis padres y mis abuelos, se llamaba Tomás Nasario. Este, cargaba una pequeña alforja puesta dentro de sus hombros, llena de monedas de oro y plata, sellada de 9 décimos en aquel tiempo. En aquel tiempo se vivía más garantizado con la moneda, no había piraterías. Mi padre cumplió con sus compromisos y recibía más crédito, así era como trabajaba durante su vida.

También fué él (Victoriano Desposorio Pulido) quien inauguró la Plaza del Mercado de Abastos, cuyo mercado fué donado por el Filántropo, Señor Víctor Larco Herrera, Viruñero, nacido en el Fundo San Idelfonzo, que queda de 3 a 4 kms. del pueblo Virú..."

"TRAGEDIA DE MI PADRE": Victoriano Desposorio Pulido VIRU, 1916

Al presumir este concepto, lo digo con todo mi orgullo que, un grupo de sánganos, sanguinarios, con los nombres de Víctor Ganoza, Julio Mariano Ganoza, José Zanelli, y Julio Soé Ganoza, conociendo que mi padre se encontraba progresando en su trabajo y muy querido por su pueblo, surge la envidia; para mas tarde eliminarlo.

Una noche que funcionaba un circo muy atrayente por su puesto, se dirigió mi padre para entrar a dicho espectáculo, acompañado con una concubina. Estos les lentiaron y les causó envidia, por lo que trataron de pronunciarles palabras duras, insultando, queriendo avergonzar ante su dama. Para ésto, mi padre trató de apasiguar diciéndoles que en ese momento no podrían contender, pero si querían, al día siguiente tratarían el asunto. Fué así que se citaron, dándose la mano para el otro día a las 4 de la mañana. En efecto, no tardó el alba del día siguiente, cuando José Zanelli, que así se llamaba el que encabezaba la banda o equipo, se apresuró a tocarle la puerta de la casa de mi padre diciéndole que se levantara a cumplir su palabra. Mi padre que estuvo atento, al escuchar su preventiva, contestó: ¡Un momento! Y cogiendo su revólver salió y se dirigieron a un desolado que existía no muy lejos de la casa de mi padre.

Luego de acuerdo, se posesionaron a una distancia de 20 metros; estando posesionados, mi padre le dió la preferencia a su adversario para que disparara. Este, todo nervioso le disparó, no pudiendo hacer blanco, entonces mi padre le dijo así se dispara y al disparar hizo blanco, hiriéndole el pecho, éste cayó al suelo por el impacto y al caer, mi padre lo creyó que lo había matado, y tuvo que escaparse para auxiliarse, porque se encontraba solo, mientras sus adversarios atendían a su enfermo.

Mi padre pudo esconderse debajo de un puente de un Canal de agua, en un sitio llamado "La Alameda" que conduce al río Virú, que dista 2 cuadras mas o menos. Con esto, despistó a sus adversarios que lo seguían para eliminarlo. Esperó la noche, escondido en un vecino y amigo, cerca del Puente, y se condujo a la Chacra de su propiedad llamado "El Sanjón", que estaba sembrada de arroz, y al día siguiente esperó la noche para conducirse en su brilloso caballo que montaba siempre; una movilidad que tenía para realizar sus negocios.

Se condujo al Pueblo de Moche, donde tenía unos compadres para que por medio de ellos buscaran un abogado para reconciliarse con sus adversarios por lo que consiguió sus propósitos, volviendo a la amistad nuevamente. Así, pudo retornar a su Pueblo (de Virú).

Pero sus enemigos no contentos con esto, siempre trataban de vengarse. Para el efecto, un día (Domingo) 17 de Abril de 1916 (Manuel Desposorio tenía a penas los 11 años de edad), lo invitaron a mi padre para brindar copas en un Restaurante de propiedad de Santiago Morillas, que después de brindar muchas copas, uno de ellos simulando ser el mejor amigo, lo abrazó y bajó la mano por la cadera, como quién palpaba si tenía o nó revólver. Pero mi padre no tenía ni una aguja, al poco momento salió a un desolado, de enfrente del restaurante para hacer de aguas, junto a un orcón de algarrobo, mientras tanto sus falsos amigos aprovecharon para hacer de las suyas. El dueño del restaurante siendo pariente y amigo de mi padre, también fué cómplice y jalando un cajón de su mostrador, entregó a Víctor Ganoza un revólver, diciéndole: ¡Mátalo a ese palangana! Fué así que disparó cuando él (Victoriano Desposorio Pulido) estaba haciendo de aguas, hiriéndole la pierna y el abdómen. Mi padre imploró: "Así no se matan a los hombres". Al oír la detonación por los disparos, la gente se alborotó para saber lo que sucedía, y se dieron con la sorpresa de lo que sucedía, oséa, el hecho que acababa de consumarse en desmedro de mi padre. Sus compadres y amigos que de inmediato se hicieron presentes lo auxiliaron, conduciéndolo a su domicilio, a una cuadra del hecho; (hubo) muchos lamentos de parte de todo su pueblo querido.

Pero mi padre, encontrándose con vida todavía, trataron de salvarlo, consultando con un buen médico que se encontraba en Virú, llamado, Dr. Bravo, quien después de examinarlo nos deshaució, porque la bala había comprometido los intestinos. Con todo esto, mi querida madrecita (Martina Pulido Fernández), con el corazón destrozado por el horrible hecho, atinó llevarlo a la ciudad de Trujillo para ver si podían salvarle la vida. De inmediato confeccionaron una camilla en la cual lo conducían acompañado de todo el Pueblo. Pero al llegar cerca al Fundo San Ildefonzo, lo bajaron para descansar mientras mi padre pedía agua, porque tenía mucha sed. Después de tomar (agua) dió un fuerte suspiro. Terminó su vida y entregó su alma a quien nos la dió.

Que de Dios goze y en paz descanse, esperando su voluntad para ser juzgados en el día del juicio, para obtener el galardón que nos merecemos. - AMEN



ALGO MAS SOBRE EL BISABUELO DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO SOMETHING MORE ABOUT THE GREAT GRANDFATHER OF FREDDY DESPOSORIO:

VICTORIANO DESPOSORIO PULIDO o VICTORIANO DESPOSORIO-SOLES PULIDO Para todos los que deseen conocer un poco mas de la Vida de Victoriano Desposorio Pulido, Mi Bisabuelo se caso con su prima Martina Pulido Fernandez. Pero para poder casarse con su prima, tuvo que cambiarse el apellido de "Pulido" a "Soles" (Soles, era el apellido materno de su papa Jose Santos), de lo contrario de acuerdo a las leyes, no hubiera podido realizar tal matrimonio. Asi que a lo largo del resto de su vida se llamo: VICTORIANO DESPOSORIO-SOLES PULIDO

Pueden mirar una foto de Martina Pulido Fernandez quien fue esposa de Victoriano, o miren foto de Encarnacion Desposorio Pulido quien fue hermano de Manuel Desposorio Pulido. Encarnacion se parecia mucho a su papa Victorianoy eso les puede dar una idea de su parecer. Por descuido familiar no tenemos una foto de Victoriano, y la replica de un cuadro pintura de los retratos que mi papa: Dionicio Desposorio Urcia tenia de mi bisabuelo Victoriano junto a su esposa, se extravio. Dicha pintura fue hecha por mi tio Roberto Ramos de Rosas Desposorio quien fue un Pintor de profesion y Poeta (hijo de Pascuala Desposorio Pulido quien fue hija de Victoriano).

Ojala que lo puedan disfrutar conociendo un poco de mis antepasados.

En http://www.desposorio.org tambien pueden saber mas de mi bisabuelo Victoriano Desposorio Pulido. Saludos a todos.

 2 - DIARIO PERSONAL DE JORGE DESPOSORIO URCIA, 1979: Historia Personal de Jorge L. Desposorio



PERSONAL HISTORY OF JORGE L. DESPOSORIO

Los Angeles, California, April 6, 1979

Por Jorge Luis Desposorio Urcia

I was born in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred forty, on the twenty eighth day of August, in a small town called Viru, which is located on North Coast of Peru, among the boundaries of Trujillo City.

I come from a very large family. My parents, Manuel Desposorio and Maria Magdalena Urcia had 13 children, three girls and ten boys, from which 4 boys passed away, three when they were small babies and one at 32 years of age. I'm the eighth child. My parents, who still live at the farm in Viru, are in their seventies. My brothers and I moved at an early age to the city so that we could get a better education. We visited our parents frecuently, and especially during vacation and helped them on the farm to harvest corn, pineapples, kidney-bean and fruits.

When I was born I looked like a dead child with purple skin and the midwife picked me up by the feet and hit me with her hand to get my respirations started which made me cry a lot. I was healthy but very skinny. When I was a school boy one of my classmates, kicked me hard in my leg and caused an hernia. In High School I caught a terrible cold and bled a lot from my nose and was absent from school for a week.

In the month of July 1961, the first two missionaries in that city [Trujillo], Elder Burffuss and Elder Douglas Ross, taught us the gospel, and all my family gradually left the Catholic Church and we were baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, except my brothers Carlos David, Rey Manuel and Santos Victoriano.

My father is the oldest son in his family and works as a farmer. He was twelve years old when his father, Victoriano Desposorio, died on April 16, 1916. He has three brothers and one sister: My uncles Manuel Encarnacion, Maximiliano, Pedro and Pascuala. His inheritance was a farm of 7.5 acres. My mother is a housewife and does part-time work as merchant selling the harvest of the farm, which is mainly fruit. Her inheritance was a farm of 2 acres, and together they worked very hard. We always had food and plenty of clothes because of our harvest, my parents and my oldest brother and sister made the clothes for all the family.

All my brothers and sisters have a profession, except Santos, who is accompanying my parents and helping them as a farmer.

My brother Dionicio, studied Mechanics, and received a Diploma [degree] as a Mechanical Technician, but he did not like that job, so he studied more and got a Diploma [degree] as a Teacher in Physical Mathematical Science. Now he has taught in high school for 15 years and is now studying law. He has 5 children and his oldest son Fredy, after his Mission in Uruguay, is studying International Relations at Brigham Young University in Provo.

My brothers Carlos David and Victor Manuel, both have six children and work as Barbers and are also Merchants. My brother Rey Manuel is a football player. He works as a minibus driver and has a cafeteria in Puente Viru. He has a child called Arturo Ruben. My brother Domingo Jose after studying for many years, got his diploma [degree] as a Medical Doctor at the National University of Trujillo in the month of August 1974 but unfortunately few days later had a traffic accident. He was [hospitalized] at the Hospital de Belen for two months and finally passed away when he was thirty two years old.

My sister Aura Elvira, was a nurse and lived in Lima-Capital until she got married to Jorge S. Gutarra Tello. She helped a lot economically to our family, especially during our studies. Now they have a child called Olinda Janet, and live in Viru, close to my parents. Maria Jesus is a clothes Designer, living in Trujillo, and her son Carlos David Villela, started his Mission in March 1979 in South Peru-Mission, after entering to the Sao Paulo Brazil Temple. She gave us assistant at home during the years of our schooling.

My sister Eva Lucia, was a Teacher in Peru for four years, then she served a Mission in Chile for two years (1969-1970). She then returned to her job as a Teacher for six months and after that, came to the U.S.A. in 1971; following her studies in Los Angeles City College, then in California State University of Los Angeles. She got her Diploma [degree] in "Latin American Studies". On February 18, 1978 she was married to David Johnson Fox at the historical Saint George Temple, in Saint George, Utah.

I studied the carreer of Teacher and received my Diploma [degree] as a Professor in History and Geography (1964), and worked for fourteen years at "San Isidro" National High School in Tembladera, Cajamarca. During that time I studied Anthropology and got my Degree in Social Anthropology (1974). I founded The Archeological Museum "Julio C. Tello" in Tembladera. For many years I enjoyed teaching teaching in High School and working in a Museum before I came to Los Angeles in February 1978 to attend my sister's wedding. In April [78] I attended The 147 Annual World General Conference in Salt Lake City, and also had the opportunity of greeting the Prophet, Spencer W. Kimball and felt his great love for his people. Since March 31st, 78 I have been studying English as a Second Language in Evans School L.A. California, and I have been serving as a Ward Clerk for Los Angeles Fourth Ward since October 29, 1978.

In my country when I was studying at the University I got sick with "tonsilitis" but the doctor cured me in time. While I was working in my Archeology Practice off campus I had an accident. I was excaveting and my tool hit a stone, and my spine injured badly. I was seriouslyn sick and spent two months in bed. The doctor said after he saw my X-rays, "you have a separated vertebra and your bones need calcium". Finally one of the missionaries, Elder Ronald Viotty, from Brazil, gave me a blessing and then I felt much better; soon I recovered my health and started my job again in school.

In my family we used to have prayers in the morning, before or after each meal and before bed time. Our favorite prayers were "The Lord's Prayer" and "The Sign of the Saint Cross" as a Catholic tradition, to give thanks to God.

I remember the economical situation when I was a student because I grew up with little food and clothes, and our house was big but unconfortable. So, when I was studying in Viru, my Godmother Clarita Santolaya [Dioncio's wife's aunt], was like my own mother, and took care of me during the first semester because my home was too far from the school for me to go home to eat for lunch. She gave me lunch and sometimes 2 or 5 cents to buy candies. Sometimes, when I was in High School and I was hungry I thought "Someday when I grow up I will work in order to make money to buy a lot of cookies and bread to eat!" At home I helped my mother in taking care of her animals.

I remember some good teachers who taught me. In Elementary School I had as a Teacher, [Mr.] Alexander Bulnes, who taught me the first letters and a poem about "Mother's day", and Luis Herrera P., a lovely man, who taught me mathematical science and other subjects. In high school, I remember teacher Rafael Narvaez Cadenillas who taught me History. At higher level in education [college] I had several good teachers but I remember Julio Gutierrez Solary and Miguel Vega Castro, both professor of Geography. I also remember my Anthropology Teacher, Victor A. Rodriguez Suy-Suy. Now I am greatful to all my teachers for their wise teaching.

I was converted to the Mormon Church when I was 21 years old and the most important thing for me was the very good appearance of the missionaries, who were like angels coming from Heaven. I was baptized in the Pacific Ocean, "Huanchaquito" Beach, by immerssion by Elder Leo Dennis Houghton and confirmed by Elder Ronalds Romney. In the Mormon Church I enjoyed attending Sunday School, the Mutual, the Priesthood Meeting, Sacrament Meeting and different [other] activities of the church. I am greatful to the teachers and missionaries for their good teachings.

My principal [main] friends during my school and professional life were: Victor Bayona Ulco, a good football player, who played with me many times. He is a teacher of Language and Literature; Jose A. Pereyra M. because he always played with me after school, and I knew his home and his nice family. He is a lawyer and works as a Judge in Iquitos City. I had another friend also, Mardoqueo Munoz A. who, with other friends and me, made a magazine "Geo-History" and after we graduated from the University we worked together for seven years in the same school. He is now a Lawyer and works as a Law Investigator in the "Eight Region of Education" in Trujillo City. I also remember other very good friends.

I like sports, but rarely won a game because I am not physically a strong man.

I like to read good books, to recite poetries, to take pictures and to dance.

In my sentimental life, I was timid, so my first girl friend was in school. She was a beautiful girl and I thought about getting married to her. At that time I was not a member of the Church. Some years later, because I had problems with some girls who were not members of the Church, I decided to never fall in love with any girl who is not of my church. By the way, in my ward, there were pretty girls also, but I wanted to get married in the temple, and at that time there was no temple in South America.

I know of two tragic situations in Peru. My father told us that in 1925 there was a terrible flood there, and in 1970 [there was] a strong earthquake in North Peru which interrupted the comunication between one city and the other, the houses were damaged and the people didn't have food for many days.

My father was an active politician Aprista. After the failure of the Aprista Revolution in 1931 [1932], there was a persecution to all the Apristas by the Military Government of Sanchez Cerro, and around six thousand people were killed in the ancient ruins of chan-chan, Trujillo. My father was able to escape from that danger.

After I finished my school I got a job so I could save money to help in the building of our own house i Trujillo City.

I had some trips in my country and got to know many interesting places, especially the Ancient Pre-Columbus ruins as: Macchu-Picchu, Sacsayhuaman, Pisac, Kenko and Cuzco [which is], the Archeological Capital of South America, Pachacamac in Lima, Cotosh in Huanuco, Sechin near Ancash and the Jequetepeque Valley: Pacanamu, Limoncarro, Montegrande, and the Pethroglyphos of "Santa Clara" in Yonan, Tembladera.

In the church, I had some positions [callings] as teacher in Sunday School, the Mutual and Priesthood, member of the High Council for the Trujillo District, Branch Clerk, and District Clerk. Finally, before I came to the United States I was a First Counselor to Bishop Hector Noe Garcia in [the] Trujillo Ward in January 1978.

It was a very nice occasion also my Graduation from the Institute of Religion, because I received my Certificate with the signature of the Prophet, Spencer W. Kimball.

A few days after I arrived in the U.S.A. I entered the Los Angeles Temple on March 3, 1978. It is a wonderful place. I felt near the Lord in that place where all is peaceful/ I hope that many people have the same experiences in "The House of the Lord and that our appearances and conduct reflect the LOve and Reverence we hold for him".

My Patriarchal Blessing is a very special guide in my life and I know that if I live the Gospel principles, the promises will be fulfilled.

I started to write my diary on February 22, 78 to remember [in rememberance] also "The Aprista Fraternity-day", and his political author, Victor Raul Haya de la Torre.

Finally, I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to my parents, to David and Eva D. Fox who are helping me and supporting me, and to the Authorities of the Mormon Church who gave me this wonderful opportunity to write my brief personal history.

 3 - DIARIO PERSONAL DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO, 1979: Anécdotas de Mi Infancia y Niñez




 Los Angeles, California
 1ro de Agosto de 1979

Por Freddy Desposorio

MI HISTORIA PERSONAL (Recopilacion de mi: "Missionary Journal", Tomo III, Pagina 301)

Esta es una compilacion de recuerdos instantaneos sobre algunos eventos historicos de mi Vida, para fines de runir datos y escribir mi libro de " Historia Personal", en un orden cronologico.

De manera que las proximas paginas, no son sino "UNA NARRACION DE LOS ANOS Y EDADES MAS RECORDADOS DE MI VIDA".

INTRODUCCION

Inmediatamente despues de haber terminado el escrito de mis hechos de hoy [en mi Diario Personal], me salteo a esta pagina para hacer un "Breve relato de mis acontecimientos mas recordados y mas sobresalientes de lo que fue mi vida, antes de mi Mision". Osea, escribir toda evidencia que me acuerde o se me relate por medio de mis padres o de algun pariente desde mis primeros anos de mi vida hasta mis ultimos anos de adolescencia que sera los 19 anos, cuando fui a cumplir una mision proseletista al campo misional del Uruguay, ya que hasta esa fecha no guarde diario [personal].

El relato y las evidencias ocurridas seran un esfuerzo de mi memoria y de la ayuda de otros parientes quienes hayan participado en tal acontecimiento de mi vida, para ser escritas en estas ultimas hojas de este Diario. Y sera lo mas exacto posible, sin desviar en nada, ni cambiarle de significado.

La razon por la cual he decidido este compendio, es por la simple razon de que en mis planes de viaje a Los Angeles, incluía primero, asistir a esa Reunión Devocional de B.Y.U., Provo. Fue alli, donde al escuchar a esta Autoridad General, un ex-Cura Catolico, me vino la idea de escribir cuando casi fui Cura, a mi temprana edad:

 PERU 1967
 MI CASI CONVERSION A SACERDOTE Y PADRE CATOLICO
 (11 anos de edad)

Eran los ultimos dias de mi educacion Primaria en la escuela "Enrique de Guimaraes", ubicado en la Calle Independencia de mi ciudad natal de Trujillo, del ano 1967, y cursaba mi 5to ano de Primaria, a mi edad de 11 anos, para el siguiente ano entrar a un Colegio Secundario que llegaria a ser mas tarde la Gran Unidad escolar "Faustino Sanchez Carrion".

Fue entonces cuando los Curas Catolicos (creo que eran Franciscanos) llegaban regularmente a nuestra aula en los 3 ultimos meses del ano [escolar] '67 a orientarnos y aconsejarnos sobre que hacer "el dia del manana", y nos decia que hay muchos que no saben, ni lo que quieren ser, y no saben lo que el destino les espera. Era entonces cuando me empezaba a preocupar, y pensaba en algo para llegar a ser: Un aviador, o un Militar, un Policia, un detective, un Taxista, o un Artista? No sabia que.

Fue entonces cuando los Curas nos pusieron en la mente y nos entusiasmaron para ir a la Escuela de Seminarios de Padres [Catolicos], alla en Arequipa.

"Arequipa? me decia yo, Tan lejos? Caramba [me dije] que lindo seria ir por esos lugares, y asi salir de mi casa y ser hombre! Asi fue pues, como mi entusiasmo era tan grande.- [ademas me decia:] Pero yo no quiero ser Padre, ni Religioso; eso es para los sonsos. Yo me ire y estare en la escuela de Seminarios, que me imagino sera grande y cercado todo el rededor para que nadie se escape, asi me decia. -Ademas quiero conocer esa ciudad blanca, y ver como se hizo blanca, quizas nieva; bueno estare alli un tiempito y ya cuando me esten por hacer Padre, me escapare escalando el cercado y correre y correre hasta que nadie me agarre".

Y asi fue como pense. Despues me reuni con mi amigo Ruben Dario Chacon (un amigo medio achinado que tiraba mas para Japones) por varios dias, [ya] que nos dejaron de plazo para meditar y decidir. Los dos acordamos ir [al Monasterio para ser Curas], y aunque [con un poco] de miedo y astusia, dijimos a los Curas, Si!

Los dias pasaron y nosotros nos preparabamos y deciamos lo mismo que dije al comienzo, que nos escapariamos.

Las semanas pasaron. Yo ya tenia mis sabanas alistadas por mi mama, mi ropa, mi frazada, y por fin, ya mi papa me iba a comprar la maleta del mercado, que era lo que mas ansiaba verlo y tenerlo en mis manos, y asi verme como un Viajero.

Pero una semana antes de partir, ocurrio que mi papa y yo estuvimos hablando, y me dijo lo que pensaba [el], y [sobre] la preocupacion de mi mama que si me iba, que seria de mi, y [me dijo] que, si en el caso de enfermarme, [y de] quien veria por mi [cuando] "aquellos Curas no van a estar al lado de tu cama viendo que te sanes". [Y] me decia mi mama: "No, no te vayas hijo. No vaya a ser que te me enfermes. Y despues?

Y yo? Si vieran como me senti. Todas mis ilusiones, todos mis planes se fueron abajo, y no tenia nada mas que seguir sus consejos. Al amigo Ruben, tuve que decirle que [ya] no podia ir a Arequipa] por causa de mis padres, y que no era por mi. Le dije [asi]: Lo siento no poder ir juntos, pero tu vas verdad? Asi le pregunte. Despues me entere que tambien cambio de parecer. Aquella vez, me fue dificil decirle que no iba, pero asi es la vida!

Ahora comprendo, el porque no fui. Hubo una fuerza mayor que trabajo en mi vida por medio de mis padres para no ir. A eso es lo que le llamo amor de Dios y del cuidado a sus hijos, para que hyo [dia] haya conocido la verdad [de su evangelio] y [ahora yo] haya realizado una mision que que en vez de ir a Arequipa, que hasta la fecha no conozco, haya podido ir al Uruguay.

La razon [del] porque mis padres cambiaron de pensar, no lo estoy seguro, pero se que mi tio Jorge Desposorio, hermano de mi papa y mormon muy fuerte, charlo [tambien] con mi papa.

 4 - DIARIO PERSONAL DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO, 1980 - 1996: Biografia de Jose Santos Desposorio Soles, y otros



BIOGRAFIA DE JOSE SANTOS DESPOSORIO SOLES

Provo, Utah, USA 1980

Por Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas

Don José Santos Desposorio Soles un buen varón de buena apariencia radicó en el pueblo de Virú, distrito de su mismo nombre, y que desde su formación perteneció a la provincia de Trujillo, ubicada dentro del Departamento de La Libertad, república del Perú.

Para entonces, el valle de Virú o más conocido como Guañape, era tan sólo un poblado habitado por indios desde 1553. Para 1601 fué cura de Guañape (Virú) desde Trujillo, el Padre Fray Alonso Díaz de la orden de las Mercedes. "En 1724 en las riberas del río Virú fundose el pueblo de San Pedro de Virú; sus habitantes fueron indios e indias, siendo cacique don Ponciano Pajuelo y Vergara." (para más historia de Virú, click aquí ). Pero Virú fue creado como distrito recién en la época de la Independencia por la Junta de Gobierno de Bolívar, y con su capital del mismo nombre, en el año de 1823, en cumplimiento a lo estipulado por la Constitución del 12 de noviembre de 1823.

El Virú de la época de 1850 era todavía un Valle o territorio olvidado, que pertenecía a la Intendencia de Trujillo a una distancia de 50 Kilómetros, y como tal su prósperidad era remota é inmadura; se necesitaba de buenos Inmigrantes y Colonizadores para emprenderla hacia la Agro-industria. Solo se escuchaba de Virú como la tierra de los Cañanes, y de un valle embrujado por sus ancestros los Mochicas, y que aún había rastro de sus Huacas y de tesoros escondidos.

Se desconoce con precisión del lugar de orígen de mi tatarabuelo José Santos, pero hay indicios de que pudiera haber nacido aproximadamente en el año de 1856 en la serranía de San Sebastián, Ancash o en la serranía de Huamachuco, La Libertad y de allí haber imigrado al Valle costeño de Virú.

Al iniciar la nueva década de los años 1860 a 1880, este valle pronto sería la mira de nuevos immigrantes para la colonización de un Valle que todavía contaba con escasos habitantes originarios de nuestra riqueza racial peruana.

Es así que las miras de un jóven soñador como de Don José Santos por immigrar a nuevos rumbos, se hace realidad para el bien del futuro de su familia y de su posteridad que pronto formaría.

Don José Santos Desposorio Soles contrajo matrimonio con Doña Jacinta Pulido posiblemente en Virú. Del matrimonio de don José Santos, nacieron cuatro hijos, y un hijo de otro compromiso por parte de padre. Sus hijos se llamaron: Manuela Desposorio Pulido, Adolfo Desposorio Pulido, Victoriano Desposorio Pulido, Manuela de la Asunción Desposorio Pulido, y Miguel Desposorio Pereda. El matrimonio de Don José crió a sus hijos en un hogar próspero porque supieron valorar las enseñanzas de su padre Don José, y así pudieron emprenderse por sí mismos en el comercio agrícolo de Virú habiendo Don José inmigrado en su adolescencia desde la Sierra Peruana para un mejor vivir de su familia y descendencia que pronto dejaría.

Don José Santos, pronto se convertiría en un próspero agricultor y propietario de muchas parcelas. Para mediados de los años 1880 ya era un reconocido ganadero y agricultor en el cultivo y el comercio del arroz trayendo así el florecimiento económico al Valle costeño de Virú.

Don José Santos y Doña Jacinta Pulido juntos con sus 2 hijos mayores: Manuela Desposorio Pulido Y Adolfo Desposorio Pulido, murieron en una epidemia contagiosa del pueblo de Virú que posiblemente pudo haber sido la Malaria, allá por el año de 1906. En su dolor ellos, fueron asistidos en aquel entonces por su reciente nuera, Doña Martina Pulido Fernandez quien hacía poco había contraído nupcias con su hijo Victoriano. Ella y su esposo Victoriano Desposorio Pulido no fueron afectados por tal epidemia, por lo que pudieron sobrevivir, al igual que la hija menor de Don José Santos, osea, Manuela de la Asunción Desposorio Pulido.

Poseía, Don José Santos antes de morir, muchos bienes y ganados vacunos y lanar. Entre algunas de estas propiedades y sus bienes se encuentran los denominados "LOS PAREDONES" , heredada y hoy perteneciente a los descendientes de su nieto Maximiliano Desposorio Pulido, otra que se llamaba "EL SANJON" , heredada y hoy perteneciente a los descendientes de su nieto Manuel Encarnación Desposorio Pulido, y otra que se llamaba "LA SOLEDAD" , heredada y hoy perteneciente a los descendientes de quien en vida fué su recién nieto nacido, Manuel Desposorio Pulido. Todas estas parcelas estan situadas en el Fundo que se denominaba Feneo (y que hoy en día se ubica desde la carretera Panamericana al pie del Puente Virú, hacia el oriente llegando hasta el Kilómetro 3 donde colinda con la parcela La Soledad cerca a la ciudad de Virú); estas tierras estaban sembradas de arroz hasta el año 1916 cuando fué asesinado su hijo Victoriano Desposorio Pulido (para conocer la historia de su asesinato, ver su Biografía por Manuel Desposorio Pulido ).

BIOGRAFIA DE VICTORIANO DESPOSORIO PULIDO

Provo, Utah, USA 1980

Por Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas (bisnieto)

Mi bisabuelo, Don Victoriano Desposorio Pulido nació y dejó de existir un día lunes del 17 de abril de 1916 en Virú, del gran Valle de Virú, en el Departamento de La Libertad, República del Perú. Nació el 7 de Febrero del año de nuestro Señor 1881 y fué el cuarto de cinco hijos que nació dentro del matrimonio de don José Santos Desposorio Soles y Doña Jacinta Pulido. Sus hermanos mayores fueron Manuela Desposorio Pulido y Adolfo Desposorio Pulido que fallecieron a temprana edad. Victoriano tu vo una hermana menor que fué Manuela de la Asunción. Aparte de sus hermanos directos, tuvo otro hermano por parte de padre, llamado Miguel Desposorio Pereda.

Victoriano creció en un hogar de padres agricultores é immigrantes de la Sierra Peruana; se presume que sus padres hayan emigrado de San Sebastián del Departamento de Ancash. Su padre, don José Santos, un próspero agricultor pronto se convirtió en propietario de muchas parcelas, y para esa época ya era un reconocido emprendedor en el cultivo del arroz que trajo el auge económico al Valle costeño de Virú.

Al iniciar la nueva década de los años 1880, este valle pronto sería la mira de más immigrantes para continuar con la colonización de un Valle todavía con escasos habitantes. Es así que la niñez de Victoriano fué bendecida con una familia de mucha prosperidad y con un futuro esperanzador para su posteridad.

El nuevo siglo 20 se inicia, y Victoriano, se convierte en heredero a la temprana edad de su juventud adulta, tanto del amor, la ternura y de todos las enseñanzas y principios, así como de ese espíritu de emprendedor que legó de sus padres para administrar los bienes que le habían dejado por esas cosas del destino. La ciencia médica todavia no habia dado sus frutos en vencer a las terribles epidemias que arrazaban al mundo; ambos de sus padres y sus hemanos mayores fallecieron para 1906.

Para entonces, Victoriano ya había contraído matrimonio un 8 de Noviembre de 1901 en Virú con quien fuera su prima, Martina Pulido Fernández, esto para suerte de una mejor mayordomía de los bienes heredados, segun las mismas palabras mas tarde de su hijo Manuel Desposorio Pulido. El gozo y felicidad de sus padres no pudo haber sido más completa que lo que estaban viviendo. La pareja Victoriano y Martina tuvieron cinco hijos, el mayor de sus hijos llamado Santos Desposorio Pulido falleció en 1902 al poco tiempo de nacer, murio de una epidemia de la epoca, su otros cuatro hijos que sobrevivieron fueron Manuel Desposorio Pulido, Maximiliano Desposorio Pulido, Manuel Encarnacion Desposorio Pulido y Pascuala Desposorio Pulido.









BIOGRAFIA DE MANUEL DESPOSORIO PULIDO

Provo, Utah, USA 1980

Por Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas*

Mi abuelo, Don Manuel Desposorio Pulido un heredero, hacendado y agricultor. Heredero, junto a cuatro hermanos suyo, de muchas parcelas en el Valle de Virú, nació el 12 de Octubre del año 1904 en el mismo día de la celebración del Descubrimiento de América por Cristobal Colón, en Virú, Departamento de La Libertad, en la República del Perú.

Fueron su padres, el terrateniente, ganadero y Camalero, Don Victoriano Desposorio Pulido, también heredero de parcelas, y su madre Doña Martina Pulido Fernández. Fueron cuatro hermanos cuando falleció su padre Don Victoriano. Ya de viuda, Doña Martina Pulido contrajo nupcias con Manuel García Lecca y de allí nació un quinto hermano. El mayor de los hermanos fué Don Manuel Desposorio Pulido, luego le siguieron, Don Maximiliano Desposorio Pulido, Don Manuel Encarnación Desposorio Pulido, y la hermana menor, Doña Pascuala Desposorio Pulido. Su medio hermano se llamó Pedro García Pulido. Todos ellos beneficiaron de las herencias que su padre Don Victoriano les había dejado.

Don Manuel y su hermano Manuel Encarnación realizaron sus estudios primarios en la Escuela: "Centro Viejo # 241", un gran edificio colonial, que a hasta la fecha se encuentra al frente de la Plaza de Armas, hoy Plaza Mayor, de la ciudad de Trujillo. Como el trayecto de Virú en ese entonces había que realizarse por burro, o por camión a la orilla del mar, y que duraba más de un día para llegar, su padre Don Victoriano los puso en pensión en la casa de su tío Don Miguel Desposorio Pereda.

Don Manuel Desposorio Pulido llegó a quedar huérfano de padre cercano a la edad de 12 años cuando un 17 de abril de 1916 su padre Don Victoriano fué asesinado en el Pueblo de Virú. A temprana edad, Don Manuel tuvo que interrumpir sus estudios secundarios para hacerse cargo del mayorazgo de los bienes de su padre. Junto a su querida viuda madre supieron salir adelante y administraron los bienes dejados. A medida que fueron creciendo sus hermanos, el jóven Manuel supo enseñarles la ciencia del cultivo del arroz, del maíz y de la agricultura. Tiempo más tarde, aproximadamente en 1938 y con el apoyo de su madre decidieron dedicarse al cultivo y producción de las frutas, entre ellas del naranjo, las piñas y de las ciruelas para espanderlo en los mercados nacionales.

Al pasar los años, Don Manuel creció como un jóven muy obediente a los consejos de su madre, muy responsable y como un buen morador produciendo para el bien de la economía de Virú. No pasaría mucho tiempo cuando ya de adultos, Don Manuel y sus hermanos recibieron sus herencias para poder seguir administrándolas de la mejor manera. Cada uno de los nuevos herederos, tanto de Don Manuel como de sus hermanos supieron emprenderse hacia una nueva era del Siglo 20, y con nuevos cultivos para el mercado. Don Manuel se dedicó a sembrar sus tierras principlamente al cultivo de las piñas y de la ciruela, su hermano Maximiliano al cultivo de las naranjas de Huando, y su hermano Encarnación al cultivo del maíz.

En el año de 1925, Don Manuel se unió en nupcias también con una heredera de la familia Urcia, la última y menor de nueve hijos, Doña María Magdalena Urcia Castillo. Juntos tuvieron trece hijos. Para 1926, cuando se encontraban radicando en la ciudad de Trujillo, Doña María Magdalena se hallaba en parto de su primer hijo, siendo el mayor de todos, Don Dionicio Desposorio Urcia y que fué él quien se dedicó a pajarear a la aves del cultivo del arroz hasta que Don Manuel decidió cambiar de cultivo; luego le siguieron, María Jesús, Víctor Adolfo, Carlos David, Víctor Manuel, Aura Elvira, Eva Lucía, Jorge Luis, Domingo José, Isidro Américo, Segundo Manuel, Rey Manuel, y el último y menor de todos, Santos Victoriano.

Entre las parcelas que Don Manuel Desposorio Pulido heredó se encuentran: La chacra denominada "Huerta Grande" ubicada en el ramal "El Choloque", otra chacra denominada "Huerta La Soledad" que se encuentra en el Km. 3 de la Avenida Virú, y una casa terreno que fué donde vivió por un tiempo su hijo Dionicio, ubicada en la Calle Alfonso Ugarte de la ciudad de Virú. Posee todas estas propiedades Don Manuel como uno de los cuatro hijos que fueron, y que lo heredó como parte de los bienes heredados de su padre don Victoriano Desposorio Pulido. Para el año de 1999 todas estas tierras se hallaban sembradas con otro cultivo, los espárragos, cuando falleció Don Manuel Desposorio Pulido.

Los bienes de su esposa María Magdalena fueron, una huerta denominada "La Huerta Chica" y está situada en el Km. 1 de la Avenida Virú, una casa terreno que se encuentra en la calle Avelino Cáceres de la ciudad de Virú, un terreno denominado "Frutería del Puente" que está ubicada en la Avenida Panamericana al lado de la Comisaría del Puente Virú, otro terreno casa, denominada "Pollería Don Vitorio" que se encuentra en la Avenida Panamericana, a 100 mts. frente a la Fruteria del Puente, y otro terreno casa, denominada Restaurante de Irene", ubicada en la Avenida Virú, Km. 0

En 1930, Don Manuel participó y sirvió en la vida política de su patria. Se ligó al histórico partido Alianza Popular Revolucionaria Americana (APRA), y en 1932 cuando se realizó la masacre en Trujillo contra los militantes Apristas por haber sido artífices de la Revolución de Trujillo 1932, fué perseguido por su militancia aprista, y fué así que tuvo que huír de Trujillo para muchas veces vivir oculto en Virú de la amenaza militar anti-Aprista.

Años después cuando todo llegó a la tranquilidad de Trujillo, Don Manuel Desposorio se dedicó a la producción de sus chacras y de sus huertas con el apoyo de su esposa y de sus hijos. Don Manuel supo inculcar a sus hijos por superarse, y a emprenderse por un camino mejor, de prosperidad profesional. Les inculcó a pisar las aulas escolares y universitarias. Fué así que se dedicó a la criar a sus hijos por un mejor porvenir y para esto les apoyó a trasladarse nuevamente a vivir en la ciudad de Trujillo.

El 16 de Agosto de 1986, fallece su esposa, María Magdalena, de allí en adelante Don Manuel ya de 82 años se retira de la producción de sus tierras y de la cosecha de sus frutos para dedicarse a sus nietos, y a construír un legado para su posteridad, escribiendo y narrando su historia personal y familiar: El Imperio de la Familia Desposorio.

Don Manuel fué un padre muy disciplinado pero amoroso a la vez, un hombre justo en todos sus tratos y para con sus hijos. Supo compartir lo justo y supo enseñarles principios cristianos, a tal modo que sus hijos aprendieron a valorar esas enseñanzas y a saber respetar lo sobrenatural.

Para Marzo de 1999, realizó su primer viaje a los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, llegando primero a visitar la ciudad de Los Angeles, y de allí se trasladó a Utah donde pudo conocer a todos sus nietos y bisnietos y a toda su descendencia. Murió realizado, habiendo dejado un gran legado, una gran herencia, y una gran historia todavía a escribirse.

El 2 de Diciembre de 1999 falleció, a la edad de 95 años, después de una recaída crónica, que le tuvo así por varios meses en el lecho de su casa-huerta "El Choloque", en Virú

  • Nieto mayor de Don Manuel Desposorio Pulido por parte de su hijo mayor, Dr. Don Dionicio Desposorio Urcia

Por Manuel Desposorio Pulido

El que relata: Manuel Desposorio Pulido de 76 años de edad, hijo de buenos padres que se llamaron: Victoriano Desposorio Pulido, y de Martina Pulido Fernández, casados el año 1901; nací el 12 de Octubre de 1904, quedando huérfano a la edad de 12 años, siendo el hijo mayor de los 4 hijos que dejó mi padre y que nos encontramos gozando de vida todavía hasta este momento.

    Los nombres de mis hermanos se llaman, el que me sigue es:
    2do Maximiliano Desposorio Pulido, el
    3ro se llama Manuel Encarnación Pulido,
    4to es mi hermana Pascuala Desposorio Pulido.

Después de viuda, mi madre tuvo otro compromiso con el Señor Manuel García Leca, que le nació un hijo con el nombre de Pedro García Pulido, siendo un hermano más, solamente por parte de madre y que también se encuentra con vida. Todos los 5 hermanos hemos contraído matrimonio, cada matrimonio con numerosa familia, hijos, nietos y bisnietos.

El relato de cada familia lo haré por separado para así facilitar mi historia.

EL MOTIVO DE MI HORFANDAD. HISTORIA DE MI PADRE (VICTORIANO DESPOSORIO PULIDO): TERMINO SU VIDA EL AÑO 1916

Mi padre, un buen padre amoroso para sus hijos y su esposa, querido por los hijos de su pueblo, y con muchos compadres y ahijados fué muy estimado por todos ellos. Era un jóven varón de mucha empresa, de muchas esperanzas para el progreso de su pueblo, se dedicaba a la agricultura, sembraba mucho arroz, maíz, una cosecha tras otra, porque el agua abundaba en aquella época; las tierras donde el sembraba eran de su propiedad, adquirido por su trabajo, en común con mi querida madre; eran muy aspirantes a tener lo propio.

Compró (mi padre) un terreno en el ramal denominado "El Choloque", que fué de un Señor José Pulido Díaz, y otro que fué del Señor Manuel Macabeo Barrigas en el mismo ramal, (más) una huerta que fué de la Señora Inés Palacios, otra que fué de Raymundo Pulido con Baltazar Díaz, (y) otra de Miguel Desposorio (¿Pulido, su hermano?).

Poseía todas estas propiedades, más los bienes de su padre, denominados "LOS PADERONES", y otra que se llamaba "El Sanjón", y otra (que se llamaba) "La Soledad", en el barrio denominado Feneo. Todas estas tierras estaban sembradas de arroz en el año 1916 (cuando murió Victoriano Desposorio Pulido).

    Mi padre tuvo, ó eran 4 hermanos que se llamaron:
    Manuela Desposorio Pulido
    Adolfo Desposorio Pulido
    Victoriano Desposorio Pulido, y
    Manuela de la Asunción Desposorio Pulido.

Mis abuelos : (José) Santos Desposorio (Soles), y Jacinta Pulido (¿?) junto con sus 2 hijos primeros, murieron con una epidemia contagiosa; mi madre que los asistía no fué contagiada, por lo que pudo sobrevivir junto con mi padre (Victoriano Desposorio Pulido) y su hermana menor Manuela de la Asunción Desposorio (Pulido).

También, mi padre (Victoriano Desposorio) beneficiaba ganado vacuno y lanar para espender en el mercado. El ganado lo traía de la serranía, (de la) "Hacienda Carabamba", de los dueños Cirilo Avalos, quien les daba crédito sin ninguna garantía. Mi padre correspondía con el valioso pago, llevándole al mismo domicilio al valor que le correspondía; (mi padre Victoriano) se iba acompañado de un siervo fiel que se había críado con mis padres y mis abuelos, se llamaba Tomás Nasario. Este, cargaba una pequeña alforja puesta dentro de sus hombros, llena de monedas de oro y plata, sellada de 9 décimos en aquel tiempo. En aquel tiempo se vivía más garantizado con la moneda, no había piraterías. (Mi padre) cumplió con sus compromisos y recibía más crédito, así era como trabajaba durante su vida.

También fué él (Victoriano Desposorio Pulido) quien inauguró la Plaza del Mercado de Abastos, cuyo mercado fué donado por el Filántropo, Señor Víctor Larco Herrera, Viruñero, nacido en el Fundo San Idelfonzo, que queda de 3 a 4 kms. del pueblo Virú.

TRAGEDIA DE MI PADRE (VICTORIANO DESPOSORIO PULIDO):

Al presumir este concepto, lo digo con todo mi orgullo que, un grupo de sánganos, sanguinarios, con los nombres de Víctor Ganoza, Julio Mariano Ganoza, José Zanelli, y Julio Soé Ganoza, conociendo que mi padre se encontraba progresando en su trabajo y muy querido por su pueblo, surge la envidia; para mas tarde eliminarlo.

Una noche que funcionaba un circo muy atrayente por su puesto, se dirigió mi padre para entrar a dicho espectáculo, acompañado con una concubina. Estos les lentiaron y les causó envidia, por lo que trataron de pronunciarles palabras duras, insultando, queriendo avergonzar ante su dama. Para ésto, mi padre trató de apasiguar diciéndoles que en ese momento no podrían contender, pero si querían, al día siguiente tratarían el asunto. Fué así que se citaron, dándose la mano para el otro día a las 4 de la mañana. En efecto, no tardó el alba del día siguiente, cuando José Zanelli, que así se llamaba el que encabezaba la banda o equipo, se apresuró a tocarle la puerta de la casa de mi padre diciéndole que se levantara a cumplir su palabra. Mi padre que estuvo atento, al escuchar su preventiva, contestó: ¡Un momento! Y cogiendo su revólver salió y se dirigieron a un desolado que existía no muy lejos de la casa de mi padre.

Luego de acuerdo, se posesionaron a una distancia de 20 metros; estando posesionados, mi padre le dió la preferencia a su adversario para que disparara. Este, todo nervioso le disparó, no pudiendo hacer blanco, entonces mi padre le dijo así se dispara y al disparar hizo blanco, hiriéndole el pecho, éste cayó al suelo por el impacto y al caer, mi padre lo creyó que lo había matado, y tuvo que escaparse para auxiliarse, porque se encontraba solo, mientras sus adversarios atendían a su enfermo.

Mi padre pudo esconderse debajo de un puente de un Canal de agua, en un sitio llamado "La Alameda" que conduce al río Virú, que dista 2 cuadras mas o menos. Con esto, despistó a sus adversarios que lo seguían para eliminarlo. Esperó la noche, escondido en un vecino y amigo, cerca del Puente, y se condujo a la Chacra de su propiedad llamado "El Sanjón", que estaba sembrada de arroz, y al día siguiente esperó la noche para conducirse en su brilloso caballo que montaba siempre; una movilidad que tenía para realizar sus negocios.

Se condujo al Pueblo de Moche, donde tenía unos compadres para que por medio de ellos buscaran un abogado para reconciliarse con sus adversarios por lo que consiguió sus propósitos, volviendo a la amistad nuevamente. Así, pudo retornar a su Pueblo (de Virú).

Pero sus enemigos no contentos con esto, siempre trataban de vengarse. Para el efecto, un día (Domingo) 16 de Abril de 1916 (Manuel Desposorio tenía a penas los 11 años de edad), lo invitaron a mi padre para brindar copas en un Restaurante de propiedad de Santiago Morillas, que después de brindar muchas copas, uno de ellos simulando ser el mejor amigo, lo abrazó y bajó la mano por la cadera, como quién palpaba si tenía o nó revólver. Pero mi padre no tenía ni una aguja, al poco momento salió a un desolado, de enfrente del restaurante para hacer de aguas, junto a un orcón de algarrobo, mientras tanto sus falsos amigos aprovecharon para hacer de las suyas. El dueño del restaurante siendo pariente y amigo de mi padre, también fué cómplice y jalando un cajón de su mostrador, entregó a Víctor Ganoza un revólver, diciéndole: ¡Mátalo a ese palangana! Fué así que disparó cuando él (Victoriano Desposorio Pulido) estaba haciendo de aguas, hiriéndole la pierna y el abdómen. Mi padre imploró: "Así no se matan a los hombres". Al oír la detonación por los disparos, la gente se alborotó para saber lo que sucedía, y se dieron con la sorpresa de lo que sucedía, oséa, el hecho que acababa de consumarse en desmedro de mi padre. Sus compadres y amigos que de inmediato se hicieron presentes lo auxiliaron, conduciéndolo a su domicilio, a una cuadra del hecho; (hubo) muchos lamentos de parte de todo su pueblo querido.

Pero mi padre, encontrándose con vida todavía, trataron de salvarlo, consultando con un buen médico que se encontraba en Virú, llamado, Dr. Bravo, quien después de examinarlo nos deshaució, porque la bala había comprometido los intestinos. Con todo esto, mi querida madrecita (Martina Pulido Fernández), con el corazón destrozado por el horrible hecho, atinó llevarlo a la ciudad de Trujillo para ver si podían salvarle la vida. De inmediato confeccionaron una camilla en la cual lo conducían acompañado de todo el Pueblo. Pero al llegar cerca al Fundo San Ildefonzo, lo bajaron para descansar mientras mi padre pedía agua, porque tenía mucha sed. Después de tomar (agua) dió un fuerte suspiro. Terminó su vida y entregó su alma a quien nos la dió.

Que de Dios goze y en paz descanse, esperando su voluntad para ser juzgados en el día del juicio, para obtener el galardón que nos merecemos. - AMEN

 6 - DIARIO PERSONAL DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO, 1980: Historia Personal de Rosa Cubas de Desposorio


Trujillo, Perú 29 de Diciembre de 1980

Por Rosa Amelia Cubas Lopez

Narracion de mi mamá, cuando me reuní con ella para que me hiciera un relato personal para nuestra Genealogia Familiar de los Cubas. Esto ocurrio cuando recién había llegado al Perú, procedente de USA, después de 7 años de ausencia. Yo tenía muchas ganas de escribir la historia genealógica de mi familia asi como de mi madre y de mi padre.

Esta historia es según me relató mi mamá Rosa a hoy 29 de Diciembre de 1980, y es lo siguiente:

RELATO DE PEDRO CUBAS ALVAREZ Y MATILDE LOPEZ MEJIA

Mi papá Pedro estaba de amores (enamorado) con Mamá Matilde desde muy jovencitos. El apenas tenía 16 años de edad y ella tenía 14 años de edad. Pero resulta que mi Abuelita que se llamaba Dorotea (Mejía Aguilar), la mamá de mi mamá Matilde, no lo quería o no lo simpatizaba a papá Pedro (creo que por su situación económica). Por lo que mi abuelita Dorotea (Mejía Aguilar) consintió que mi mamá (Matilde) se viniera con un tal Alfonso Aldea, quien era un hombre de buena posición, pero cuentan que era una persona mala, porque al irse con Matilde a su chacra (cuando convivieron), la trataba muy mal, ya que no le daba para el diario, solo paraba en fiestas, y (muchas veces) la dejaba encerrada. Y cuando mi mamá (Matilde) ya estaba en estado, esperando que naciera (mi hermanito) Juan Aldea López, resulta que hubo por el camino una culebra que le asustó a mi mamacita, a tal punto que se quedó inmóvil y muda por un gran rato; y se cree que esa es la razón en que afectó para que mi hermano Juancito hoy en día sea un poco sordo.

Todavía como mi papacito (Pedro) estaba en amores con mi mamá (Matilde), se fué a buscarla hasta donde estaba ella, y se la robó (se escaparon) para desde entonces vivir juntos para siempre, junto con sus 15 hijos que le nacieron, aparte de mi hermanito Juan (Aldea López), ya que su padre legítimo (Alfonso Aldea) nunca quiso y se resistió en que papá Pedro lo reconociera y lo adoptara con el apellido de mi papá (Cubas).

Ya después, Alfonso Aldea se unió con otra mujer apellidada Aransibia. Los hermanos (de padre) de mi hermano Juancito (Aldea López) fueron: Alvaro Aldea Aransibia Gualberto Aldea Aransibia y Víctor Aldea Aransibia

Mi mamacita (Matilde López Mejía) tuvo varias hermanas y hermanos, pero una de ellas (muy recordada y renombrada) se llamaba "Clarita" (Clara) Mejía, quien fué su hermana por parte de madre, de mi abuelita Dorotea (Mejía Aguilar). A ella, mi tía "Clarita", la conocí hasta el final (cuando falleció).

Todos mis otros hermanos y hermanas, vivimos juntos con mi papacito, en la calle Grau de Trujillo. Después que mi mamacita (Matilde) muriera cuando yo tenía séis años de edad (1940), mi papá se casó con tu abuelita Eusebia Gutiérrez. Ella era la más apropiada para él, ya que nos conocía desde muy chiquitas, porque cuando tu abuelito (Papá Pedro) quedó viudo, y al ver muerto mi mamacita, mi papá contrató a una empleada para la casa, para que le ayudara con los quehaceres de la casa, y para atendernos a nosotras las más pequeñas. La señora Eusebia, "tu abuelita Eusebia", era más que una empleada, mi papá nos enseñó a respetarla; ella era como una madre para nosotras porque después que mi madrecita murió, ella (Eusebia) nos cocinaba y nos planchaba la ropa. Mi papacito nunca la consideró como una empleada de la casa, sinó como una mamá más de nosotras.

Todos mis hermanos y mis hermanas de mi papacito Pedro Cubas Alvarez y mi mamá Matilde López Mejía, fuimos 15, empezando con la mayor (sin contar a tu tío Juancito que fué hermano de madre de: Matilde López y que puede haber nacido en 1905), los siguientes:

   1. Cristina              Cubas López   1907
   2. Idelbrando            Cubas López   1909
   3.                       Cubas López   1911
   4.                       Cubas López   1913
   5.                       Cubas López   1915
   6.                       Cubas López   1917
   7. María Graciela        Cubas López   1919
   8. Manuel Antonio        Cubas López   1921
   9. Edith                 Cubas López   1923
  10. Elizabeth             Cubas López   1925
  11.                       Cubas López   1927
  12.                       Cubas López   1929
  13.                       Cubas López   1931
  14.                       Cubas López   1932
  15. Rosa Amelia           Cubas López   1934

Y mis hermanos de padre, por parte de mi papá Pedro Cubas Alvarez y doña Eusebia Gutiérrez [madrastra de mi mama], "tu abuelita", son:

    1. Roberto Gutiérrez (hijo de Eusebia)
    2. Yolanda Cubas Gutiérrez
    3. Luis Alberto Cubas Gutiérrez
    4. María Antonieta Cubas Gutiérrez,   Y
    5. Cármen Julia Cubas Gutiérrez

Ahora, en cuanto a mi hermanito "Edilberto", él se llama Eduardo Edilberto Goicochea Aguilar. No es mi hermano directo sino mi primo, pero toda la vida nos críamos juntos, mi papacito (Pedro Cubas Alvarez) lo crío como si fuera su propio hijo desde muy niñito. La mamá de mi hermano "Edilberto" se llamaba Antonia Santolaya Aguilar de Goicochea (prima de mi mamacita Matilde López Mejía, y sobrina de mi abuelita Dorotea Mejía Aguilar); por lo que en sí "Edilberto" viene a ser mi primo (segundo). El fué muy cuidador de sus primas: oséa de Graciela (Cubas López), yo y de mis otras hermanas (de padre: Yolanda Cubas Gutiérrez, María Julia Cubas Gutiérrez; Cármen todavía estaba muy chiquita), tan guardián que nos pegaba y correteaba a los muchachos cuando alguno se nos acercaba. El es un chino alto (mide 1.75 mt.) y cuerpudo; a mi pobre hermana Graciela la tenía muy controladita, porque ella vivía en la calle y siempre lo correteaban a su pretendiente Daniel (Erazmo Salcedo Hurtado), a él se lo correteaba por la calle, igual a Dionicio (Desposorio Urcia) tu papá. "Edilberto" era un bandido, y muy celoso.

 7 - DIARIO PERSONAL DE FRED DESPOSORIO, 1991: Mi oracion a Dios para unir a America Latina

____________________­_______

14 DE DICIEMBRE DE 1991

LIMA, PERU

Dedicatoria Ofrecida al Pié

del Aeropuerto de Lima,

"Jorge Chávez", en la

ciudad de Lima, Perú,

el 14 de Diciembre de 1991

Siendo exactamente la Una de la Mañana, del inicio del día Sábado Catorce de Diciembre del Mil Novecientos Noventa y Uno, Yo, Fredy Enrique Desposorio Cubas, habiendo iniciado un Viaje de Campaña Por la Unión de Las Repúblicas de América Latina, y habiendo abordado la Línea Aérea Brasilera "Varig", en la Ciudad de Los Angeles, con destino a la Ciudad de Buenos Aires, y con ruta [escala] en las Ciudades de Lima, Río de Janeiro y de Sao Paulo, arribé en Lima, en el Aeropuerto de Jorge Chávez, para DEDICAR Y CONSAGRAR A LA TIERRA DE AMERICA LATINA, a Dios, nuestro Ser Supremo y Creador de la Tierra y del Universo, en lo que respecta con la Ciencia de Gobernar Políticamente y Económicamente a los Pueblos de Dios, como a su único Reino Político sobre la Faz de la Tierra, y De este Modo, PREPARAR LAS VIAS DE DESARROLLO POLITICO Y ECONOMICO PARA AMERICA LATINA Y EL MUNDO EN GENERAL, en el Nuevo Milenio que se nos Acerca.

Así fué, como en el resplandecer de un día hermoso, un Sábado, El Compatriota y Conciudadano, Fredy Desposorio, dió comienzo desde las Tierras Peruanas, a su GRAN CAMPAÑA UNIONISTA CONTINENTAL, un Día Histórico que quedará Registrado en las Páginas Peruanas, así como Latinoamericana, y Mundialmente, con la Oración (Invocación) Cristiana que ofreció.

Para este fin, fué que llegó al Perú, listo a comprometerse y para HACER UN CONVENIO CON DIOS Y CON SU PUEBLO, de "Dedicarle un Gobierno Justo y Unido". Antes de empezar, Agradeció por el gozo que sentía sobre los Grandes Milagros y Bendiciones que el Señor le había dado en su Vida, y por la facilidad que le había proveído para realizar tal Viaje, tal y conforme había sido su Deseo, y su Agenda Unionista.

En seguida, Yo Freddy, empecé a Descender del Avión, y mirando hacia el Horizonte, ví a América Latina, como a una Tierra Prometida de Dios, llena de Promesas, Bendita entre todas las demás, y ví a todo el Continente Americano, como a un Pueblo Escogido, y separado de entre los Mares y Océanos de la Faz de la Tierra, para un Sabio Propósito, y que esa Misión de hacer de América un solo Pueblo, estaba pronto a realizarse.

Para entonces, al pisar Tierra Peruana y Latinoamericana, se halló inclinado y arrodillado ante el suelo, al pié de la aeronave, y al pié del Aeropuerto, y ANTE DIOS, y así besó a su Tierra Latinoamericana, como un símbolo de Adoración y Esperanza por la Unión de América Latina.

Acto seguido, el Compatriota y Unionistsa, Desposorio, levantó su Mano Derecha en señal de Reconocimiento de Un Solo Dios Omnipotente y Todopoderoso, y así CONSAGRO A AMERICA LATINA Y SUS GOBIERNOS PARA EL GRAN DIA DEL SEÑOR, para el momento esperado que Dios habrá de Reclamar su Reino Político y habrá de Gobernar Teocráticamente através de América y el Mundo entero. Así, Desposorio, ofreció la siguiente Oración :

Oh Dios, Padre Eterno, Creador del Cielo y de la Tierra y de todo lo que en el Universo hay. Tu, Oh Dios de Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, y de muchos Grandes Patriarcas de nuestra Historia, aún de Moisés, y de José, gobernantes justos de tu Pueblo. Sí, Oh Padre Elohim, en el nombre de tu Hijo Jesucristo, quien dió su Vida por Nosotros, hoy levanto mi mano en señal de reverencia, para Bendecir y Consagrar a este Pueblo de América Latina, y al Continente Americano, a Vuestra Majestad, a fin de que la Gobiernes por los Siglos de los Siglos, como a tu Gran Tierra Prometida.

Sí, Oh Dios, He aquí tu Sión, tu Majestad, y tu Gloria, he aquí América Latina, tu América Adorada, para que la gobiernen los Representantes que tu Pongas, para que la gobiernen hombres de principios, íntegros y eternos, Hombres que sepan Consagrar su Vida para Tí, y para una sola Causa, He allí la Edificación de tu Reino Político, Justo y Milenial, de Eternidades en Eternidades, para que no más tengan que sufrir tu Pueblo, y tus Hijos de las Debilidades Humanas, de la Injusticia, de la Desigualdad, del Hambre y de la Miseria, sinó para que seamos una Antorcha a los demás Pueblos, y un Ancla de Unidad, así como una muestra de cómo Tu Gobiernas a tus Pueblos, y de cómo nosotros los Humanos debemos aprender a Gobernar.

Sí, Oh Dios Omnipotente, tuya es la Gloria, éste es tu Pueblo, tómala, arráncala, y danos las Bendiciones y los Privilegios de ser un Pueblo Bendito para Siempre, y de ser un Pueblo para servirte através de los Tiempos y de los Espacios, con Valentía y Dignidad. Sí, Oh Padre, cóncedenos, Nuestros Derechos, Tu Promesa, y Nuestras Bendiciones Hereditarias, que fueron marcadas desde antes que este Mundo fuése.

Gracias, Oh Dios de Abraham, Isaac y Jacob, y de América, por todo lo que nos has dado, por todo lo que nos has enseñado, por todo lo que nos has Humillado, porque hemos aprendido de tí la Gran Lección de "Sed Uno, porque si no sóis uno, no sóis míos", y si no somos Tuyo, no somos nada, Oh Padre. Tú, quien nos Dijistéis, "Os la daré como Tierra de Vuestra Herencia, si es que la Procuráis con todo Vuestro Corazón". Tú serás Nuestro Gobernante, Nuestro Rey, y Nuestro Legislador, y nosotros Tu Pueblo. ¿Qué cosa hay que pueda detener tu Mano? ¡Haznos ser Uno! Haznos recibir esta Tierra, como Tierra de Nuestra Herencia, y como Herencia para Nuestros Hijos para siempre jamás.

Oh Padre Eterno, tú que moras en los Cielos, tú quien Nos enseñásteis y dijísteis, "Juntaré a Mi Pueblo como la Gallina junta a sus Pollos, debajo de sus alas, sí, a cuantos escuchen Mi Voz, se Humillen delante de Mí, y me invoquen en Poderosa Oración...", Ahora Yo Freddy, clamo, desde Aquí, un pueblo Latinoamericano, un Restode tu Casa, Tu Pueblo que Sufre y está Humillado, para que con tu Grandeza, Toques nuestros Corazones, y el Corazón de los que hoy Gobiernan, y Reclames tu Justicia y Tu Hermandad, así como la Unión de todos Nuestros Pueblos, y que oigamos El LLamado del Recogimiento de tus Escogidos, y de la Voz de tu Evangelio, para que podamos ser Recipientes a Tus Enseñanzas y Principios, en una Conversión más Velóz, como Piedra Clave, que será para Recibir NUESTRA HERENCIA UNIONISTA, y el Derecho de ser Uno, América Toda, en Corazón y Voluntad, y para que vivamos en Justicia, y ya no haya Pobres entre Nosotros, en el Nuevo Milenio que se nos Aproxima, y así, puedas morar con Nosotros con Poder y Gran Gloria.

Sí, Oh Dios Sempiterno, REDIME A TU PUEBLO, y Reina entre Nosotros en esta tu Sión de América, tu Sitio y tu Pedestral, de donde saldrá tu Ley para Gobernar al Mundo. Oh Dios de Todos, tu que Moras en las Alturas, Bendice a este Pueblo Adolorido, que ha sabido Dar, y dará cuantas veces Pidas y nos exigas.

Gracias Oh Dios, por estar en este tu Pueblo del Perú, tierra Añorada, que me vió Nacer, y que por alguna Razón he de haber nacido aquí, Gran Tierra del Legendario, Perseguido y Maltratado Apóstol Político, ...

 8 - PERSONAL DIARY OF FRED DESPOSORIO, 1991: A hope and prayer to God about uniting Latin America

____________________­______

DECEMBER 14, 1991

LIMA, PERU

Prayer Offered at the Foot

of the Airport of Lima,

"Jorge Chavez", in the

city of Lima, Peru, on the

14th of December of 1991

At one in the morning sharp, in the beginning of the day, Saturday the Fourteenth of December Nineteen hundred ninety one, I begun my Campaign Trip for the Union of the Republics of Latin America, and having aboarded in the City of Los Angeles, the Brazilian Airline "Varig," towards the City of Buenos Aires, and with a stop over in the Cities of Lima, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, I had arrived in Lima, in the Airport of Jorge Chavez, TO DEDICATE AND TO CONSECRATE THE LAND OF LATIN AMERICA, to God, our Supreme Being and Creator of the earth and the universe, regarding the science of governing the people of God, politically and economically, as his only Political Kingdom on the face of the Earth, and thus, TO PREPARE THE WAYS OF POLITICAL AND ECONOMICAL DEVELOPMENT FOR LATIN AMERICA AND THE WORLD AS A WHOLE, in this New Millenium that it is coming.

Thus, in the shining of a beautiful day, a Saturday, I began on the Peruvian Land, this GREAT UNIONIST CONTINENTAL CAMPAIGN, an Historical Day that will be recorded in my personal history, as well as in the Latin Americans, with the Christian Invocation that I offered.

This was the reason why I arrived in Peru, ready to commit myself and TO MAKE A COVENANT WITH GOD AND MY PEOPLE, "to dedicate a righteous and united government to God". Before I began, I was thankful for the joy that I felt about the Great Miracles and Blessings that the Lord had given hme in my Life, and for the ways that was provided to me to make such trip a reality, just as it was my wish and my Unionist Agenda.

As, I began To get down from the Airplane, and looking towards the Horizon, I saw to Latin America, as a Promised Land of God, flood of Promises, Blessed among all other nations, and I saw the entire American Continent, as a Chosen People, and separated from the Seas and the Oceans of the face of the Earth, for a Wise Purpose, and that the Mission to make of America a single nation, was soon to be a reality.

Then, when I was on my Peruvian and Latin American soil, I was found inclined and knelt down towards the ground, next to the Airship, and to the Airport, and BEFORE GOD. And I kissed my Latin American Land, as a symbol of Adoration and Hoped for the Union of Latin America.

Immediately afterwards I raised my Right Hand as a sign of recognition of a Single Omnipotent and Mighty God, and thus I PRAYED FOR LATIN AMERICA AND THEIR GOVERNMENTS FOR THE GREAT DAY OF THE LORD, for the right moment that God will have To demand his Political Kingdom and will govern Theocratically through out America and the entire world. Thus, I pronounced the following invocation:

Oh Eternal God, Creator of Heavens and the Earth, and of everything which is in the Universe. Oh God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and of many Great Patriarchs of our History, even Moses, and Joseph, righteous rulers for thy people. Yes, Oh Father Elohim, in the name of thy Son Jesus Christ, who gave his Life for Us, I raise my hand in a reverence sign, To ask thee to bless and to consecrate this People of Latin America, and the American Continent, to thy Majesty, in order that thou may Govern for Centuries and Centuries, as thy Great Promised Land.

Yes, Oh God, behold thy Zion, thy Majesty, and thy Glory, in Latin America, thy beloved America, so that here can govern the Representatives that thou may appoint, so that it can be governed by men of principles, Men that shall consecrate their Life unto thee, for a single Cause, for the building of thy Political Kingdom, a righteous and Millenial one, from Eternities through Eternities, so that they may never have to undergo thy people, and thy Children from the Human Weaknesses, the Injustice, the Inequality, the Hunger and the Misery, but to be a Watch to the other Nations, and an Anchor of Unity, as well as a sample from how to Weathervanes to thy people, and of how we the Human beings must learn to govern.

Yes, Oh Omnipotent God, thine is the Glory, this is thy People, take it, grab it, and give us the Blessings and the Privileges of being a Blessed People for ever, and to be a People to serve thee through the Times and through the Spaces, with courage and Dignity. Yes, Oh Father, allow us our Rights, thy Hereditary Promise, and our Blessings, that were made before this World was.

Thanks, Oh God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and of America, for everything that thou hast given us, for everything what thou hast taught us, for everything of what hast humiliated to us, because we have learned of thee the Great Lesson of "Because if thou art one, thou art mine", and if we are not one, we are nothing, Oh Father, thou who hast saith, "I shall give it this Land as Your Inheritance, if it is that you try to be of one Heart". Thou shall be Our Governor, Our King, and Our Legislator, and we thy People. What thing can stop thy Hand? Make us be One! Let us receive this Land, as a Land of Our Inheritance, and as an Inheritance for Our Children for ever and ever.

Oh Eternal Father, thou who dwells in Heaven, thou who hast taught us and hast saith, "I shall gather to My People like the Hen gathers its Chickens, under its wings, if they, listen to My Voice, and are humbled in front of Me, and they invoke to me in Powerful prayer... ", Now I Freddy, cry out, from Here, a Latin American people, a Rest of thy House, thy people that suffers and is humiliated, so that with thy Greatness, thou may touch our Hearts, and the Heart of he who governs today, and that thou may demand thy Justice and thy Brotherhood, as well as the Union of all Our People, and that we may hear the Calling for the gathering of the chosen ones, and of the Voice of thy Gospel, so that we may be prompted to Receive thy Teachings and Principles, in a much faster Convertion as the corner stone, that it shall be for receiving OUR UNIONIST INHERITANCE, and the Right to be One, the whole Americas, in one heart and one mind, so that we may live in Justice, and that there may be no poors among Us, in the New Millenium that is coming closer, and thus, thou may dwell with Us with a Great Glory.

Yes, Oh Everlasting God, REDEEM THY PEOPLE, and dwell among Us in this thy Zion of America, thy Site and thy Pedestral, where thy law shall go forth to govern to the World. Oh God of All, thou who dwells in the Heights, Bless to this painful People, who hast learned to share, and shall give at any time whenever request it and ask us.

Thanks Oh God, for being here in Peru, a hopeful land, where I was born, and that there might have been a reason of why I was born here, a Great Land of the Legendary ones, of the Persecuted and Mistreated Political Apostle, ...

 9 - AUTOBIOGRAFIA: HISTORIA PERSONAL DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO, Mi Vida y Obra Política, 2000

Por Fred Desposorio

MI VIDA Y OBRA POLITICA

Provo, Utah, USA 28 de Julio 2000

Hola Compatriotas:

Soy Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas,

Nací el 4 de Febrero de 1956, en la ciudad de Trujillo, gran ciudad, de alrededor de un millón de habitantes, y Capital del Departamento de la Libertad, símbolo de la "Libertad". La Libertad es el primer Departamento de los 24 Departamentos en que se compone el Perú, que dió ¡El Primer Grito de la Libertad Peruana! (el 29 de Diciembre de 1820). Es por eso que me identifico con ese principio de libertad para que exista y se respete en toda nuestra América. ¡Ese es mi deber, no hacerlo sería mi verguenza, como liberteño que soy!

Nací en un año de transición democrática. En 1956 fué el fin de la Dictadura de Manuel A. Odría, y el inicio de las Elecciones Democráticas que llevó como legítimo Presidente Constitucional a Manuel Prado Ugarteche.

Soy el segundo de cinco hijos. Mi padre, Dionicio Desposorio Urcia de profesión Profesor y Abogado, y mi madre, Rosa Amelia Cubas de profesión Profesora, me críaron con el espíritu de humildad y servicio, dentro de un hogar en donde la sencillez y la mansedumbre estaba por encima de toda vanidad. Soy descendiente de abuelos Agricultores por ambas partes, Cajamarquinos y Liberteños (de Bambamarca y Virú).

Crecí en un Barrio muy popular de Trujillo, en donde me contagié con el verdadero pueblo, que somos la gran mayoría de América Latina, con el sueño de ser algo mañana más tarde: ¡Con el espíritu de aspirar, y rendirnos jamás! Conocí los sufrimientos de un pueblo que no tiene en abundancia, y que sin embargo tiene la fé suficiente para seguir sirviendo y viviendo por sus Hijos, por su Patria, por su Ley, por su Libertad, y por su Dios, y así sacar de donde no hay. Es por eso que "Conozco a los míos, porque soy uno de ellos". ¡No puedo pasar por un pobre, y no extenderle una mano!

Salí del Perú desde mi adolescencia, un 9 de Octubre de 1973, habiendo culminado la Secundaria en la G.U.E. "José Faustino Sánchez Carrión" en el 72. Salí en el día del natalicio de mi querido padre. En ese día, declarado a la vez "Día de la Dignidad Nacional Peruana", aprovechó mi padre para sacarme del Perú. Con mucha tristeza, ví desde el avión como me distanciaba de la vista de mi padre, en su día de cumpleaños, temprano por la mañana, y durante la Dictadura de Juan Velazco Alvarado. Salí a los 17 años de edad, como estudiante, gracias al esfuerzo de mis padres, rumbo hacia Los Angeles, California, Estados Unidos de Norteamérica. Aquí me eduqué y aquí aprendí a valorar el principio de la Libertad y del Sistema Democrático que haya existido jamás en alguna nación de la tierra. A los 19 años, interrumpí mis estudios superiores en EE.UU., para servir dos años voluntarios de mi vida, como Misionero Mormón, empezando primero en Brasil y luego en la República Oriental del Uruguay. Allí observé de la diferencia que hay entre un pueblo unido como los Estados Unidos de Norteamérica, y nuestros pueblos desunidos como las Repúblicas Divididas de América Latina, é hizo sentido en mi vida el significado del gran sueño de Bolívar, San Martín y Artigas.

Me gradué en Relaciones Internacionales en la especialidad de Leyes Internacionales y Diplomacia (1975-81), y en Ciencias Políticas (1981-82), ambos en la Universidad de Brigham Young, "B.Y.U." También estudié un Post-Grado en Política Internacional (1981), en la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, "U.N.A.M."

En 1983, de parte de mi fé religiosa, fuí asignado a trabajar profesionalmente y asalariado esta vez, para el Sistema Educativo de la Iglesia (I.J.S.U.D) Fuí asignado a Guayaquil, Ecuador, y después a Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, como Director Regional de tres programas: Seminarios, Institutos, y Alfabetización. Allí aprendí verdaderamente lo que es el sufrimiento de un pueblo olvidado y postergado, y de la gran urgencia de unirnos como Pueblo Latinoamericano. Observé como la mesquindad y el privilegio de los afortunados y gobernantes, puede humillar tanto a nuestros ciudadanos indefensos y a nuestras fronteras desunidas. En 1987, regresé a Utah, USA a seguir trabajando para la I.J.S.U.D., pero esta vez, relacionándome con todos los Consulados de América Latina en los Estados Unidos para adquirir Visas Religiosas para todos los misioneros que semanalmente son llamados a servir exclusivamente en América Latina, y através del mundo.

En 1992, decidí, embarcarme a la vida pública, y para ésto, me dediqué a representar y defender, en cuanto a Derechos Humanos y Derechos Civiles se refiere, para mi gente Hispana aquí en USA. Tarea que vengo haciéndolo hasta la fecha.

Desde muy jóven, fuí motivado por dos grandes ilustres peruanos, rivales políticos entre sí, Víctor Raúl Haya de la Torre, y Fernando Belaúnde Terry, para entrar en la Política. Con el espíritu unionista que abrigué, decidí abrazar a ambos ideales, uno por su ideal "Integracionista Latinoamericano", y el otro por su Ideal Nacionalista de "Peruanizar al Perú". Ambos, ¡demócratas probos! En 1975, nuestro ex Presidente Constitucional del Perú, Fernando Belaúnde, encontrándose exiliado en Estados Unidos por el Golpe Militar del 68, llegó a visitar la Universidad de Brigham Young, en la ciudad donde yo vivía desde entonces, Provo, Utah, USA, para dar una Cátedra.

En Febrero de 1978, siendo aún estudiante de Ciencias Políticas, y previo a las Elecciones Peruanas para la Asamblea Constituyente del 78, escribí desde los Estados Unidos, mis primeras dos cartas políticas, a Haya de la Torre, y a Belaúnde Terry, preguntándoles sobre el porqué escribir otra Constitución más para el Perú.

Me afilié al Partido de Haya de la Torre, "APRA", en 1980, cuando después de 7 años de ausencia, regresé a mi Perú, tierra que me vió partir a muy temprana edad. Había sido elegido y jurado como Presidente del Perú, Belaúnde Terry, hacía escasos meses. En 1981, me emprendí a conocer más de mi orígen Latinoamericano, y decidí conocer por primera vez MachuPichu, y en un extenso viaje por tierra, conocí el sur del Perú, Bolivia y Chile. Para 1985, apoyé incansablemente a la candidatura de Alan García Pérez por su Gran Espíritu de Democrático, pero una vez ganado las elecciones, y siendo yo aún, miembro del Buró de Organización para el CED de la Libertad, y comisionado a la re-inscripción de toda la militancia Aprista para el control disciplinario de dicho partido, fundé el 27 de Abril del 85 un Círculo Aprista, que se llamó "U.R.I." (Por la Unidad de las Repúblicas de Indoamérica), y decidí regresar a Norteamérica, no sin antes conocer el Norte del Perú, y me extendí en otro viaje por tierra, a Ecuador, Colombia y Panamá. Ya juramentado Alan García, me retiré del Perú, rumbo a los Estados Unidos, el 6 de Agosto de 1985. Convencido de que su programa económico no duraría mucho tiempo, y para evitar una oposición de mi parte, siendo ajeno de la contención, y ya que mi tésis unionista no encajaba con la teoría integracionista de Alan García, me retiré silenciosamente del Perú para buscar apoyo internacional y continuar con la "Causa Unionista Latinoamericana" en que me había embarcado. Posteriormente, escribí una Carta a Alan García el 9 de Julio de 1988 desde Provo, Utah hablándole de la "Decadencia del APRA y Opciones Políticas" que quedarían en el escenario político del Perú (haga click abajo en "ABOUT MY UNIONIST IDEAL", luego en "U.N.I.T.E.D.", en seguida en "Unitist Documents", después en "Documentos-Discurso­s: II Parte").

En 1987, me alejé del APRA, y fundé el Movimiento Unionista, " U.N.I.D.A.D."

En 1989, realicé mi primer viaje a Europa para unirme en la celebración del bicentenario de la Revolución Francesa, y fué mi intención observar y estudiar de cerca de cómo puede un Continente con diversidad de idiomas como Europa, y de tanta división histórica, estar preparándose para lo que hoy es la Unión Europea. Para ésto, me dirigí a la Alemania Occidental, momentos antes de la caída del Muro de Berlín, así continué a Suiza, Italia, España y Francia. Para Enero de 1990, viajé a Tokyo, Japón, a conocer talvés al Imperio del Sol Naciente, y su cultura oriental. En Junio de 1990, nuevamente viajé a Europa, esta vez a Inglaterra, y a Francia, para seguir conociendo de cerca la historia de éstos pueblos del Occidente. En 1991, decidí iniciar la "Cruzada Unionista Latinoamericana", y cristalizar así en un futuro inmediato, nuestro Sueño Bolivariano, para ésto, empecé mi CAMPAÑA UNIONISTA, viajando a México D.F., México; Lima, Perú; Sao Paulo, Brasil y Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Para 1992, estábamos a punto de hacer de U.N.I.D.A.D. un Partido Político, cuando estalló el Autogolpe de Estado de Fujimori, y con ello, disolvió el Congreso, cerró la Corte Suprema, ilegitimizó a los Partidos Políticos como únicas Escuelas y vanguardias de nuestras Democracias, y concentró todo el poder del Estado, en su imágen de Tirano.

A fin del año 1999 (31 de Diciembre), fuí invitado por el Partido Peruano de Belaúnde Terry: "Acción Popular", Partido al cual pertenece mi padre desde 1963, pero de la cual yo nunca milité, ni menos simpatizé, y menos lo esperé, a integrar la lista de Pre Candidatos al Congreso de la República Peruana. Esto, gracias a la nueva política de convocatoria de unas Elecciones Abiertas históricas por parte de Acción Popular, para todo el Pueblo Trujillano que deseara participar, sin importar militancia partidaria alguna. Candidateé entre el pueblo de Trujillo Metropolitano solamente, y en el día de las elecciones abiertas, gané y me convertí como Candidato al Congreso. Fuí proclamado Candidato oficial por el Jurado Nacional de Elecciones del Perú, el 9 de Febrero del 2000. En las Elecciones Nacionales del 9 de Abril, las más fraudulentas y diabólicas que jamás haya registrado la historia peruana, queda pendiente en que la Justicia reclame al causante de dicho Crímen Electoral. Los votos, de todos nosotros los Candidatos que quisimos representar legítimamente al Perú, nos fueron ultrajadas. Solo la historia lo dirá algún día, sobre quiénes fueron los verdaderos ganadores...

Mientras tanto, tengo un Deber que cumplir, y un Juramento que realizar como ciudadano Peruano, como ciudadano Latinoamericano, y como ciudadano Continental:

"¡Yo, Freddy Desposorio, JURO, a hoy 28 de Julio del Año de Nuestro Señor, año Dos Mil, siendo las cuatro de la tarde en Utah, USA (cinco de la tarde, hora peruana). Sí, Juro ante mi Dios, ante mi Patria Latinoamericana, y ante el Perú dolido de hoy, ante la Constitución Peruana de 1979, ante la Constitución Norteamericana, soberana de la Democracia y la Libertad Mundial, ante los Grandes Hombres del Ayer, ora Ancestros, ora Precursores, ora Libertadores, y ora Contemporáneos, que dieron sus vidas por la Unión y Libertad Latinoamericana y Norteamericana. Sí, Juro ante mis hijos y posteridad futura, y Juro ante la Biblia:

Defender sagradamente Nuestra Libertad que nos queda. Defender Nuestras Constituciones Legítimas del Continente. Sí, Juro, Restaurar la Democracia en el Perú, y en los otros pueblos que le falte. Velar porque se lleve a cabo la transferencia de mando en México al nuevo Presidente Electo, para Diciembre del 2000, y según manda la Constitución, así como velar por la Alternancia Democrática en el resto de nuestra América. Y JURO, LUCHAR POR LA UNION DE LAS REPUBLICAS DE AMERICA LATINA!"

Estoy seguro que sí, es posible lograr este Sueño Libertario, Democrático y Unionista. Para ésto, cada uno, debemos estar seguros que ¡Sí hay una amenaza mundial! y que esa va en contra de nuestra familia, nuestra fé, nuestra patria, nuestro Dios, y nuestra Libertad. ¡Vamos Compatriotas, empuñemos ese escudo de la Fé, que será el mismo escudo de la Libertad y de la Unión!

¡UNIOS,... dijo Bolívar, SINO LA ANARQUIA VA A DEVORAROS! Y yo diría, la Tiranía actual de Fujimori, o de cualquier presunto Julio César que se crea endiozar como Dictador, tal como ocurrió en Europa con el estallido de la II Guerra Mundial.

Fred Desposorio

Updated Biography after 2000

After the events of 2000 in Peru and worldwide, many experiences has happened in my life that has led me to the conclusion that this nation, America, would be needing the favor of God to defend the freedom of this land. This thought came to me after the results of the November Elections which brought Political division and controversial opinions about the elections results between the two Political Parties and their Candidates, Al Gore and George Bush, the last claiming to be the winner of the U.S.Presidency with a lot of unpleasant voters through out the nation. By then, I thought the U.S. was taking a dangerous direction in government. Thereby, my interest to get involved in the U.S. political and constitutional issues has increased, and my desire to help this nation increased as well.

By 2001, the American social and political stability seemed to be deteriorating with the September 11 Terrorist Attack. The freedom and democracy in the entire world also seemed to be uncertain. The threat of "a rising hard Ruler and Warrior" demanded by the people was on the way. Then the threat from President Bush to create a World War was at hand with the preparation to attack Irak.

By 2002, I decided to get involved by raising my voice in what I thought it was my citizen duty to warn our people of what was coming ahead. To raise my voice, I attended the National March for Peace in Washington D.C. to stop the War, to stop Agression and to promote the defense of Democracy and of our Constitution which I thought it was now in danger. This demonstration was on April 20 and April 22 in Washington, D.C. I also became active member of the Democratic Party and became a County Delegate and then a Utah State Delegate between 2002 and 2003.

Now the attack against Afganisthan and Irak has taken place, and many lives has been taken away. After the invasion to Irak, there has also been casualties among close friends and relatives within the family who has given their lives as soldiers for Freedom and Liberty.

This is my favorite phrase in times of casualties:

WHEN FREEDOM IS JAILED THERE IS ONLY TIME LEFT WITHOUT DISTANCE... THEREAFTER... ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN... FREEDOM RETURNS... DISTANCE WILL BE RECOVERED... BUT THE TIME?... NO LONGER WILL BE THE SAME... AND FOR MANY IT WILL NEVER COME BACK.

Pops, I have to get my wisdom teeth out. Oh, I'm excited for you to go to Uruguay, sounds like fun. I got your package today, thanks a lot for it. Well, I need to get my wisdom teeth out and we have to pay for it ourselves. The last time I checked in my bank account of Zion's I had about 900 and something dollars. I haven't used any of it yet, but I already called Sister Tanner (Mission President's wife) and told her about it, she said to just find a place to get them out. Well, I'll just get them out and worry about paying later. Just get the money out of my account and send it to me or something, okay? But other than that, I'm doing good here. We're still trying to get that Spanish ward going here but there aren't that many Spanish members here. It's pretty hard to get people to come to church, but we're doing the best we can. Angelica didn't come this Sunday. Well, we're just gonna still keep on moving along and get those people baptized. I hope everything goes well with your baptizing Elizabeth, sounds cool that you're doing that. If I was still at home I'd love to come with you. But anyway, I'll talk to you guys later. Take care, bye--

Hey Bro! Waaaaaaaz up? :P Nothing much here. I'm here over at my dads house. it's about 5:45pm. We already went to church this morning. Actually I was there 5 minutes before church started because my dad told me to be early. So I was, and guess who all walks in about 10 minutes later, yep the fam. But it's okay. Church was okay. Then we got home and started watching home movies. I helped them fix all their videos because they were all messed up. So I organised it. Now all the home videos are somewhere else and are easier to find. I also put them in order by year. I was watching the very first video, when we were all little and stephanie wasn't born yet. It was pretty funny. It's weird how we all spoke spanish. Like the whole time. That video is the one where, we show off our halloween costumes. Where you were a pirate, and Felix was a Smurf and Sarah was a Gypsy, and I was an Angel. Yeah, it was funny. We were also all dancing to that spanish music in the kitchen, I kept laughing. Especially how like every five minutes one of us would say, Hey Video game dude, talk to me! Or, Kay sura sura, whatever will be will be.Yeah it was a funny video. Then after we were watching videos, me and Stephanie were having a water fight inside and outside of the house. It was pretty fun. Then we got in a water fight with my dad too! It was fun, he kept getting us with a mug full of water though! He cheated. But yeah we finally calmed down, and then me and Stephanie played Uno. OH yeah we were also looking at some pictures that we took when we all went to california. Yeah, I guess my dad just barely developed them like last week. But yeah, I think he's going to send you some pics. So yeah. School is finally over!!! Tuesday was like the last day. We just had an assembly, then we got out yearbooks, and we were out by 11:30, and then we were just signing year books. But then on Wednesday I had to go back to school at 8:00 in the morning beause Tashina and I had to do our dance test. We were suppose to do it like 2 weeks ago, but Tashina sprained her ankle. It was pretty funny. But, my teacher let us take the test on Weds, and she only took 5 points off, of 100. Which is pretty good. She should see our dance its cool. We did a mixed song with all these songs of Michael Jackson. It's not a mixed version, I mean it's like 4 songs cut, into to make 1 song. It's pretty cool. Yeah, and that's about it. I gots to go now, because I'm tired and I wants to kinda get home now. But I promise I'll write you a letter this week okay. And sorry if this post is kinda weird. I'm just writing it fast and I dont know if it really makes sense. But yeah. luv ya!

My son, Elder Freddy Desposorio. You don't know how much I miss you. Stephanie and I pray every night for you. There has not been a single day without mentioning your name in our prayers. Do you know who else does Stephanie pray for, every night? For Elizabeth. It's amazing how sweet Stephanie is for everybody. I think Stephanie wants to see me happy too. Just as you said it once to me, few months ago when I was with a broken heart. Your words are being fulfilled, that the Lord will bless me with the right person. Well, this is happening now. Every thing is going great between Elizabeth and I. I'm going to Uruguay on June 18, and coming on June 25, everything is ready for her baptism on June 21. She is so spiritual, and has a strong testimony. She said that her life has changed when she least expected. These are all miracles. Well son, you don't know how happy I am for you, to be at the right time and at the right place, as a missionary. Felix is graduating on Thursday. He and Spohia already got their Yearbook, yesterday Tuesday. Felix's Senior activity will be to Lagoon, and they are going today Wednesday. My daughters are growing. Stephanie has grown up a lot. People who has not seen her for a while notice it. Felix is happy now that he is graduating. He wants to be free. He is a great son just as my son Freddy. Sophia and Sarah are also great daughters. They are always together and go to places together. They look like twins, and Stephanie always visit her mom and sisters. May the Lord bless you always. Dad

Hello Hello Hello. I'm sorry I couldn't write last week but now I can. How is everybody doing? I'm good, everything is going good here. We just got transfer calls last night and I'm staying here in Cleburne with my companion. How are things all going up there in Provo Utah? Anything exciting happen yet? It sounds like Felix is pretty bored over there, eh? Anyway, things are going good here. Today is the 19th of May and it's almost June my birthday. Wierd huh? Yeah, Stephanie, hi. It's a good thing that you guys cleaned up Rinny's little house, it was starting to get smelly. (I would imagine =) So, I'm glad to hear from all of you guys. I was happy to talk to my mom and siblings for Mother's Day, it was cool. I'm learning a lot more things out here, how to use the scrpitures, both the Bible and the Book of Mormon to answer people's questions. By the time I get back I'll be a genius! =) I've also learned a lot more about what other churches believe in. They're all still living in the Apostacy and are confused. Well, so far we have had no investigators at church. We were supposed to have 11 investigators at church yesterday and the same last week too but Satan is working on the people here. We're doing our best to help the people here out. We've got a lot of good investigators right now. We've got at least 3 good families that should get baptized some day even if I'm not here. It takes a lot longer for the people that you tract in to to get baptized. We sure are getting the word out here in Cleburne. I'll probably stay here another 6 weeks and then we'll see what happens. I hope to see a baptism here though, it'd be nice. Well, y'all take care and have a wonderful day.

Hey Freddy. What's up? So how was your week? It was cool being able to talk to you on Mothers day. My mom really loved it just so you know. It was probably her best present she got. Next to the Donny Osmond cd we got her. Hee hee jk. She likes it though. So wait, you got the tape we sent you right? Good. We'll probably be making another one soon, aaiight. Did you get the message from Tashina? Oh yeah there it is, right under mine, I think. I don't know we're writing them at the same time because we're both here after school in the computer lab. I have to wait for Sarah to pick me up at 3:30, remember. Yeah. Well thats about it. I'll try to write you a letter this week okay. Luv ya.

Elder Desposorio. How's my missionary. Did you have a great day yesterday for mother's Day? I sure was surprised to hear your voice on Saturday. It made me very happy to hear it at least for few minutes. The church still needs you mission official email. Could you send it to me? Thank you. I'm going to Uruguay on June 18-26 to meet and baptize Elizabeth. She would be baptized on Saturday the 21th. Do you know what do I need to take with me, any recommendation form so that they can know I'm worthy to baptize her. Please let me know. Dad

That's what the claratin is for. Well, I hope you're having fun out there. I'm sure it's more fun that this boring nothing to do town of provo. Where nothing really exciting happens. You're not missing much. Anyway, I'll talk to you later okay. Bye

Pops, I hope that you got my "package" that I sent to you. It was the empty container of the medicine. I just ran out this morning. It's working good. Yeah, on Mother's Day have my mom call me, okay? Actually, I'll probably need to call you guys. What's my mom's phone number? I forgot. Because I don't know what time we are going to call. But just in case I'll give you my phone number right now. It's 817-556-2747. I'm glad to hear from both Stephanie and Sophia. Stephanie, I'm doing fine, how are you? I miss you too. I just have 17 more months to go. Sophia, some missionaries call everybody Elder and others just say their last name. I just like to say their last name. But the guys down here like to call me Despo. Weird huh? anyway, have fun at school. Keep working hard okay? I'll from now on make the double sided tapes, okay? Maybe it's because my mom wants me to do the whole to sides and now cheat her out. Oh well, anyway, I'll be waiting for the tape. Well, that's about it. As it is chilly in Provo, Utah, it is really warm and humid here in Cleburne, Texas. I hear it gets a lot more humider and a lot more hotter. We've had some days where we've been sweating so much because it was real humid. Oh well, I'll just have to get used to it. You all take care, bye--

Hello Elder Desposorio. Tell me, How is your skin? Is the medicine helping at all? Let me know. Here we had a wonderful Sunday. Yesterday we went to church as usual, and the same amount of family, Sophia and us. Felix is graduating from H.S., but only from 2 or 3 years Seminary. That's OK. He had his free agency. I couldn't do more. But he is a great boy, as you are. I love all my children. I'm planning to go to Uruguay from June 18 to June 25, to meet Elizabeth and baptize her. We are having the most wonderful spiritual experience. Who would have ever thought about this few months ago, right? That's how the Lord make things work when he said My ways are not your ways, neither are my thoughts. The whether here is still chilly. This past week has been cloudy and raining and hailing. Off and on we have seen the sun. Our pets are doing great. We should be sending you some letters this week. Ah, on Mothers Day, I think I should only let you talk to your mom, not with me, since is mothers Day. Maybe with me will me for Fathers Day. Is that OK with you. Thank you Son. Tell me of any of your needs. Do you need any cash? Are you using the one from your account. I haven't check it lately. It's OK about you buying your boots and hat and belt. I should send you money for that. Tell me when. Have a great week, and may the Lord bless my missionary a lot.

Hey Freddy, I mean Elder Desposorio. Do your companions get to call you Freddy, or do you all have to call eachother by saying elder? I was just wondering. Yeah, I'm here at school early in the morning. It's 7:23. Did I tell you that I'm here at school everyday from 6:45!!! Crazy huh. It's because my mom and Sarah both have to be at work at 7:00 and Tats doesn't leave for work until 7:40 because he doesnt need to be to work til 8:00, so it's either be half an hour late every day, or be 45 minutes early everyday. Personally, I wouldn't mind being late everyday, but you know. Oh yeah, we(my mom, sarah,me,stephanie,m­e, and felix) We all made a tape to send to you. We made it like 2 weeks ago, but I don't think my mom sent it yet. I don't know why, she's slackin, but she'll probably send it soon. Yeah it's front and back too! I don't know why, but my mom doesn't want to use the back of the ones you send us. So you might as well just use the front and back of the tapes you send us so you don't have to waste it. Yeah, well the bell just rang so I gots to go. Bye.

Hello family, I'm glad you're all doing well. Pops, that's so great to hear about you giving a referral to the missionaries down in Uruguay. That's something that us Spanish missionaries in the US need. We need a lot more referrals. Well, here I'm doing good in Cleburne. We have a lot of investigators that are progressing and hoping to get a baptism in the next month or so.. (If I'm here long enough) Well, yesterday we did some service in a very run down house, we did some major yard work there and also the library was closed so we came today since we did do that yard work yesterday that took a long time. Well, this one's going to have to be short but just to let you know I'll start writing Sarah more okay? So I can get her excited about church. Well, you all take care. Bye--

Elder D., Stephanie and Felix are doing great. Stephanie will write you later and send you a picture on the US mail, and I think Felix wrote you by email. By the way, The ward (bishop) needs your Missionary official site email address. They told me to ask you yesterday. Do you know how things are going between Elizabeth and I? Great. This past week, I felt the missionary work spirit, because I was many times on the phone with the Elders from the Mission office of Uruguay (and with the Mission President), giving and checking the referral I gave to them and seeing if they passed it to the Missionaries in the area where Elizabeth lives. Finally, Elizabeth received a call from the Elders of her area, on Saturday morning, and she went to church yesterday, and by coincidence, it was a Stake Conference, and the Mission President was there with all Church local authorities (She went to church on Easter Day, but for her surprise it was closed because it was being rebuilt, so she missed it on that sunday. Bye son. Love you always.

Hello! Pops, I was surprised to hear that you guys got a new bishop because Bishop Worthen wasn't bishop for too long. But then you said that he's the new 2nd counselor in the Stake Presidency, that's good. Plus, President Mullen is a Mission President in New York? That's cool. Well, it's great to hear about you and Elizabeth pops. I hope everything goes good with that. And I will pray for Papá Dionicio. Yes, I did get a letter from him, it was nice to hear, I was surprised that I got something from Peru, it was cool. Well, everything is good here in Cleburne, we're doing good here. On Tuesday we are going to go to Dallas to go to the temple. Cool, huh? That's why today we only have 'till 12noon for p-day. But that's okay.

Elder D., Hello my son. We got a new bishop today. He is brother Borrup. I was his home teacher until today, now I got different families. I'm sure I will miss him. I told him I hope we taught him well to be a good bishop, and we laughed. The reason of this change is that Bishop Worthen was called as First Counselor of the Stake Presidency to fill the vacancy of this brother, the short one, who was called as Mission President to NYC. What a change, eh? That's life. Changing conversations, about my friend Elizabeth, we are doing terrifically well. Today we talked on the phone for 2 hours, same as Wednesday, and we email 3 or 4 times a day. There are also a lot of spiritual connections between us. Someday you will know it. My mother told me yesterday (her birthday) that she has had a dream about Elizabeth's family back in Jan 2003. By the way, now that I remember, my dad said he has sent you a letter on the first days of March. Did you get it. Tell me about it, please. Papa Dionicio will have a surgery on April 23 for his kidney stones. Could you join me in prayer all of these days? Thank you. I don't want anything bad to happen yet until I get married again and he sees me happy again. I'm planning to make a trip to Uruguay sometime on June to meet her again, and then baptize her (it would be nice if it is on the same trip). But don't worry, if I ever marry again it will be in the temple within a year from baptism. Well son, I just leave it in the Lord's way this time. May the Lord bless you and keep up the great work you are doing, and he will reward you a hundred fold. Love

Hello. How are y'all doin? Pops, I haven't been doing good with that TB medication. I still have a whole container left of that. I think I was supposed to be done with that on the 11th of this month, huh? I don't know what to do. Should I stop taking it? Well, I also got the medication that you sent me last week. Thank you. I got your letter also from Dear Elder and it was the same thing you wrote here on the post board. Last week I read it on here and I didn't have time to reply to it because it was long. But that's very interesting of what has been happening. I'm happy for you. I've always tried to include the last name of people when I write them in my journal. By the way, I forgot to tell you, I got some more pictures on the internet and I'll send them to Felix's e-mail okay? Well pops, the work here in Cleburne is doing good. We keep finding a lot of people to teach and we're trying hard to have them read, pray, and prepare to get baptized. I hope before this next transfer is over that we can get a date for baptism. I think it's possible. But anyway, yesterday night (Sunday) was transfer calls and I'm still gonna be in Cleburne like I expected. But Cleburne is a good place. Well, I forgot to tell Felix Happy Birthday!!! You're 18 now. On Saturday I remembered it was your birthday and I couldn't believe that you are 18 now. You're getting old. 1 more year and you go on a mission!! cool. Even cooler if you came here to Texas =) Well, conference was great. We watched all 10 hours of it at church. How's my mom? Did she get my cassette tape? Well, I'll be sending a letter here today to you guys. But anyway, tell me what more is going on. How's the weather? Here it's finally starting to stay warm and sunny. I saw on conference on Saturday it was sort of snowing outside in Salt Lake City. That's rough, too bad ya 'aint here 'n Texas where it's nice n' hot!

Yes. Before I forget, I have to report of how you are doing with yor TB medication. They have called three times now in the past 2 months, and I keep forgetting. They wanted me to ask you that. Other news? I'm doing great with Elizabeth in Uruguay. It all seems a sweet dream, she cannot believe thats happening in her life and I cannot believe it that's happening in my life either. We've been emailing each other twice a day, and phone calls once a week. And what news do you have for us? How is your missionary work in that area? Is it hard? Well, read my stories, and you'll see that for the Lord nothing is impossible. May he bless you. Love you always.

Just got to pass everything you know. Well,.... yeah... looks like Mike T. Just might pick up bass, we made up a song the other day that sounded real cool, and he liked jamming so much, he's been wanting to jam every day since then. So Sean's been teaching him stuff, and he's picking it up pretty fast, it should be cool. Well yeah, i'm 18 now, it's kinda weird, but pretty much the same.

Well, now about the great news is that, I had a beautiful week, dealing for the first time ever, with the families I found and baptized in my mission of Uruguay. This was for me a rewarding experience. I never thought I would feel such a really great joy for saving one soul as a missionary. What happened is that I never wrote nor called any of my families since I finished my Mission. That's 27 years ago. But I always had the feeling that one day I will hear or see my families again when I go to Uruguay again. And last week, some Uruguayan family called me at 4 in the morning for an emergency legal immigration help. Thereafter, I felt like I wanted to know how my families were doing. I never tried it before, because I thought their addresses I had written in my Missionary Journal, were not updated anymore, besides I did not have any of their phone numbers. But I asked how to get it, and I was told that I could find them in the Internet by looking on the white pages. And I said, yeah that's right! So immediately I searched in my Journal for their complete names, and I began finding their Phone numbers. With this excitement, I decided to call, one by one (I'm still not done with all of them, but I'm in my fifth call so far.) I have been calling my best families first. It was an emotional experience for them and for me. They said they think they were dreaming. Me too. My first call was to the Palesso Family. My second call was on Tuesday 25th March, to the Mazzolenni's Family (Alfredo Sr. and Alfredo Jr. and the mother.) I talked to this little boy whom I baptized on August 1976, he was 8 years old, at that time. Now he is 35 years old, a man and a father of 3 children. He said he still remembered me, and brought up an evidence, and said that his friends ask him very often, of how he is the first and best player in Checkers in town, and he says to them that a Mormon Missionary from Peru taught him. And I said, "Did I really Teach you? 'cause I can't remember," and he said yes. His father whom I baptized, died in 1995 and his mother is sick. I called her on the next day, and she cried...

Dear Elder, What a week I had. Many news, but great news. First of all, let me tell you that about your medicine, I found out that the one Dr. Kenneddy prescribed was not the one you asked but it's the less effective one. He said he cannot prescibe you, "Accutane 40 Mg" (which is the one you used once) or you have to see a Dr. down there. But the one I mailed to you, are really great, the Dr. said. He asid, it should be very effective. I sent it via USPS Priority Mail and you should get it by Tuesday.

It won't be for a long while until I have another baptism because the Spanish people here haven't had missionaries here for a long time, so we're just sowing seeds right now.

It's wierd that it's happening while I'm on my mission. Oh yeah, pops. I thought I said in the tape that I DID chew gum and that it didn't work.

Dear son: Elder D., We got your tape cassett this Friday. We shared it to your mom and to your sisters. We all liked it a lot, and we liked to meet your companions and getting to know them. Your companions are very friendly and funny. We were impressed of your tremendous progress. Also, your voice sounds more mature, and your spirit has grown up a lot. Son, before I forget, why don't you send me a letter via dear elder.com ? All you have to do is click above on "Mail Room" Try to log-in first. If you forgot the password, let me know. There is plenty of money for the stamps I had to put in the website account, back in October. Each letter sent, costs me $0.34 cents, but it's all paid. Take advantage. It's easy to send. All you have to do is type inside the square, then click "Send Letter," There is also an area where you need to write my address. Try it. I'm curious to know how the letters look like. Did you ever received my letters I sent you in your first two or three months of your mission? Don't forget to tell me. I need to know. About your experience on the airplane, on your way to Texas. Son, when one has a cold, it's not good to aboard a plane or you got to tell it to the airplane ladies. I learned this in the hardest way. You know, I have boarded airplane thousand of times, but I was never misearable as I was once when I had a strong cold, and I boarded a plane, and on the way to my destination, the plane had to make three stop overs. My ear almost exploted because of the air pressure. That flight was the longest I ever had in my entire life. I have never boarded an airplane again, until I get over a cold. I didn't know you went through this on your flight to Texas. I feel sorry for you. It's not fun at all. Now, if you did not have a cold, then, you were not aware that you had to chew gums, so your ears will not get plugged. I thought you would remember that. We used to give all of you gums, when you were children, before boarding the plane. Sorry, if I did not remind you of that. It's an awful experience. I don't want my children to suffer of what I did. I feel powerless that I wasn't there with you. Well, changing conversations, here I had a busy week with all of this, war, going on. I'm worried and sad, my son, for the unnecessary lost of lives and the stubborness of Bush and the leaders of nations who supported this cause. I hope there is a way out, if there's still something left. But you take care and do your part as a valiant soldier of the Lord. That's the greatest honorable mission on earth that a man can serve. Love you. --THE PICTURES YOU SENT ME ARE NOW IN THE PHOTO ALBUM IN THIS SITE. I almost forgot, but last Friday Felix went under surgery with anasthesia to extract his wisdom teeth. And about Rinny, we did not give her away, Stephanie decided not to. Maybe because she saw you were sad about the news, and that's a good news, because I was going to miss her a lot. Yeah, I'm thinking of buying a piano and Stephanie's violin soon. Linda is still Stephanie's teacher. And about moving, I'm not planning to move at least for now, but if we do, we would stay in the same ward.

Hello, yes I will be burning a shirt on the 2nd of April. Cool huh? Yeah, it's the tradition here. On your 1 year mark you burn a shirt, and 18 mo. mark you burn pants and then 24 months you burn a suit. Yeah, pops, send that medicine to me, okay? Thanks. I'm sorry I can't write much today because I have to go. Love you all, thanks for writing. Bye.

Son, I forgot to tell you that I have my citizenship interview next Monday 24 March at 8:00 AM. This appointment invitation was mailed to me on Dec 31, 02. Finally I decided to be U.S. Citizen of this country and give up my rights for Peru and the dreams I had for them (but I can help them from here, Can't I?) By the way, today at 8 PM EST, Bush will address to the nation. I would say this is his declaration of War, although he would not say it directly, as usual. Elder Desposorio, you just be a great missionary to the Savior. Be the greatest missionary that the world ever had, and the Lord would protect you. As of me and my house, I would say, like Moses said to his family when the 7 plagues had to happen to the Egyptian Pharaon (and the greatest Empire ever, at that time,) when the Lord's plague of "the Destroyer Angel," was to pass over (Passover) their lives. And Moses said: "AARON, JUST CLOSE THE DOOR AND LET THE DESTROYER PASS...!!!" Son, let us not worry about this worldly thing. May the Lord bless and save his Kingdom.

Elder D. Dear Son, Do you know who says hello for you? Brother Sheldon Nicolaysen. I was talking to him this afternoon on the phone. I called him because I'm writing the history of the Mormons in Peru, on our Family Web, and I remembered that once I showed him in 1996, when he was our home teacher, the pictures I had about his brother when he was the second Mission President of Peru in 1962. Anyway, he gave me a lot of information. I asked him if his brother has left a Missionary Journal, and said that unfortunately not, but that later he wrote an oral history interview into a book, and that he will hand it to me. That is great. As you know he was a missionary in Uruguay (1947). What was surprisingly, was that I was going to write the history of the church in South America when it began back in the 1940's from the Uruguay Mission in order to understand the Peru Mission History, and I found out that brother Nicolaysen was the 2nd Counselor of the Mission President of Uruguay (1947) to brother Shreeve. It's this man what I wanted to write about Uruguay, because when I was at BYU he was a teacher and he was so proud that I served my Mission in Uruguay, and I knew that he knew a lot of Uruguay Mission History. Now I found out that he died last Aug 2002. He is the old man, you and I saw in the Mall with his wife, back in Jun or Jul 2002 and he asked me how my political dreams for Peru were coming along. Remember? Anyway, now that he is dead, bro Nicolaysen can tell me of the history of Uruguay, because the Peruvian Mission was part of the Uruguay Mission at first. I remember, bro. Shreeve used to tell me that Apostle Richard Scott, Elder Thomas Fyans and Elder Gene R. Cook were called as missionaries to Uruguay, including me. He was always proud of Uruguay and loved the Latin people a lot. Son, I shared this to you 'cause the Lord really opens doors, when one thing is true and right. So there is a reason why we were neighbors to bro. Nicolaysen. The reason I'm writing the History is because I promised once, in 1985 to bro. Penarrieta who was the first Pioneer of Trujillo, and District President, as he moved to Provo and gave me a lot of old Pictures of the Church in Peru, that one day I will write that history of the Church in his memory. Then the next year he died. And I always felt that I should write it soon, and now I just bearely started writing, and he should be proud up there in heaven. Changing conversations, son, President and sister Cameron came back home, and spoke today in the Sacrament. They were Mission Presidents in the Pensylvannia Mission, after serving for two years. He could not finish the 3 years, because on Jan 2003 he was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. His testimony was great and humble. He and his wife spoke a lot about their missionaries, their problems and their successes. I was thinking of you. Son, Mission Presidents and their wives are your spiritual parents for 2 years. Always, keep in touch with them about your health, your successes and your worries. You will see the results. I love you. May the Lord bless you.

Hello. Pops, I got your Valentine's cookies a while ago up in Lewisville. Thanks for that. I also recieved your scriptures that you sent. I was actually wanted to get some new ones but I didn't want to ask for them not knowing if you had money. But thanks for them. Sorry to hear about Fred Rogers, he was a cool guy. I think he started that show when he was about 20 years old! Wow, he's been doing that for a while now. Hey, do you know a lady named Suzanna Perkins? My companions told his mom that I was from Peru and he said that his mom knows a lady that knows you and my mom, or just you, or just my mom. But I don't know. She's Peruvian and her husband is white. Well, I'm doing okay here in Cleburne, we've been knocking a lot of doors and had a lot of first discussions. I know that first discussion very well now. By the way, did you hear about that we can't say the discussions word for word anymore? We have to go by the Spirit and already know that doctrine in order to teach the discussions. It's kind of cool because we get to learn more. Well, I'm going to send Stephanie a picture I colored for St. Patrick's day, okay? Well, bye---

Dear Elder. So, are you settled in your new area? I know how hard is to leave your area and the families you made. It's a heartache. That's what I was talking about. You learn to love new people and then the Lord sends you to another place and meet more people. It's the mission of life. Anyway, yesterday I bought Felix a new car, but I told him I would not give him the key until he graduates and until he passes his ACT on April 12 (I told him he may have the key on this date, if he takes the preparation course which starts next week, 'cause that night is Prom's,) so he can start BYU in Winter 2004. What happened is that I was too busy that I did not spend time on finding out the BYU deadline for new students, and I thought it was going to be the same deadline as it was for me, March 1. Now he will go to UVSC for one semester. Anyway, the car is a Dodge Intrepit '96. It's a cute one. I'm thinking of either selling your car or Felix's old car. Which one should I? or should I get rid of both? Let me know. Son, Did you hear of the death of Mr. Fred Rogers last week (3rd or 4th March)? I watcged a special TV program dedicated to him on Night Line News. It made me cry, cause you all used to watch that, and I used to watch that. And when you were kids I used to imitate him by taking my sweater off when I arrived from work. Remember that? Anyway, a great man! Son, Don't forget to use your money from your Debit account. There's still left about $90 and so. Tell me if you got the present, and the package I sent you long time for Valentines. By the way, I shared your pictures to your mom, and she shared those ones she got, to me. I will put them all together in an album this week so when you come you can claim them back. Also, soon I will put them on this site. Church was nice today. The members always ask me how you are doing, and I tell them: He couldn't be better. He is doing terrific. Love

And about my hotmail account is working now. Felix fixed it, but don't send me anything, either on this or my yahoo account, try instead to email me on my desposorio.org account, when you have any private things to share, otherwise, use this site.

I'm now here in Cleburne Texas, a small town south of Fort Worth. My new companion's name is Elder Baters. Me and my comp have been trying to get some things going in this place. We've already taught 4 1st discussions by knocking doors. We've been here since Thursday. Yeah, we both kind of miss our other areas, but we have to put that aside and start working in this place. In fact, Elder Bates was supposed to have a baptism on Sunday which he missed and would have been his first baptism so he was kind of bummed out about that one. He's been out for 9 months now and yesterday I hit my 5 month mark. Pretty cool huh? Tuesday I didn't get to see any other families either and on Wednesday was supposed to be transfer meetings but they cancelled it because of the storm and so I thought that I was gonna have a whole other day in Lewisville but they called us up and told me to come over and exchange us. I stayed over at the mission office and my comps came and picked up the newbee and then I went and slept over at the A.P.'s house with all the new people and that was wierd. But then the next day we had the transfer meeting and that's when I met my new comp and we found our car that we were taking, we looked for Cleburne on the map and then headed down. All day on Thursday we were getting all situated and stuff. But anyway, this whole place is going to be hard to work in it's kind of a rough area. Well, we have no investigators, we had to start from scratch, and it's pretty hard to do all of that. I hope we can get this place going though. Plus, there is no Spanish ward. There is only one ward here in Lewisville and it's in English. We have only one Spanish family in the ward but it's just an old couple. They speak very little English and I had to translate for them during sacrament meeting with the headsets. Translating is hard! I kept messing up but I'll have to keep practicing. Anyaway, we'll see you all later. ---Bye---

Hello, pops. That's kind of funny about the ring. It's pretty cool too though. Yeah, so this new place Cleburne is kind of wierd. Anyway, how are you all doing over there? I don't know what you mean about the pictures... do you mean that the pictures disappeared?? Well, I'll see what I can do. By the way pops, you can make another e-mail account with another name. Just make sure that you don't give out your e-mail to anyone on the Internet and it'll be clean with all the commercials taken out. That's what I did with my elderdesposorio account, I never gave it out and I don't get any junk mail, just the e-mails that you all send me. Well, have fun and take care, okay? By the way... tell Sophia to e-mail me okay? Tell her not to foget about me =) --bye--

Elder D. Dear son, Today Sunday was a beautiful day at church. I shared my testimony after few months. It was unexpected. I did not want to share it but the spirit was stronger. So, Felix just shared about the ring story? (This was suppose to be a secret.) Yeah, it's a pretty one. I went crazy and purchased it on Feb 14, that way I would be ready next time. My friends don't really make fun, they just think it's a great idea and said they want to do the same thing if they had the money. They tell me that I am very positive. I tkink it's faith. Whatever, I bought it in cash and I ough no one. This time I don't want a girl to ask me to marry her and give me a ring like crazy Nicole did 4 years ago. Sorry! --- Son, now back to us. I was looking the pictures you emailed to Felix. They are great (especially when you are with the horse and giving it a B of M. It made me laugh.) It remainded me that you have a great skill to entertain people and that I used to tell you that when you are on a mission someday, the children there will love you. I hope you are putting it in practice. About the other pictures you mailed me, I haven't had time at all to downloaded in your Site. I was busy with clients at work and with meeting deadlines at BYU. However tonight I was looking the pictures you emailed Felix, but there is a block to copy them to my desktop. After so much work, found out that it's all in blank, and I need that first, in order to download them to your dearelder's site. Check with Wall Mart and see if they are supposed to be blocked for commercial reasons. However the pictures you mailed me, I will put them soon in this site. Today we had the Ward Newsletter, and I will send you a copy. The Ward said they are sending you one too, every month. Tell me, are you getting them from the Ward? Anyway, my best regards in your new area. I sent you a present on Saturday. You will get it soon. Bye, Dad

Hey Freddy. How's it going? How was your transfer, I hope you get adjusted well. Wanna hear a funny story? Okay, a man buys a Engagement ring, but doesn't have anyone to propose to, but says "I'm making an investment, so When I do find some one to ask, i'll be prepared." His friends make fun of him, but i think it's a good idea. Yeah That guy is my dad. Hehe, he bought one a while ago, it's a nice ring, he says he just wants to be prepared. so yeah... anywho...

Elder D., Hi. Guess What? Last week I got an email from this guy in Peru who is a descendant from the guys that in 1916 shot my Great Grand Pa, Victoriano Desposorio, at his ranch. Now the story is not a legend for me anymore, because all the Desposorios used to talk about it when I was a kid. Wuauuu! He said he saw my website www.desposorio.org and read the story, and was very surprised to read the names of his grandpa and grand uncles, and did not like it at all. He asked me why did I write those names. I said, I did not write it. It was my Grandpa who wrote it in his Journal and then he shared it with me in 1980, and then I wrote it in my Personal Diary. He said he was sad to know of the story of my great Grand Father. He confirmed that his family mentions that his grandpa did indeed killed someone. This family's name is The Ganozas, a well distinguished family in Trujillo same as the Desposorios (and they were rivals ever since.) I told him that I have nothing against the Ganoza family, and not even my father, except my grandpa, because he became orphan when he was 12 years old. What a story, eh? You can read this letter on the Desposorio's Site, under "Family Forum," keep clicking till you find that page. And you can read about the story of my Grand Pas' Personal Diary under "My Family/Mi Familia." Good luck. Another thing, there's a Desposorio Family in Texas I met back in August, remember when I called them on the phone? Well today, I talked to them on the phone, and told them that you are a Mormon Missionary, and they want you to visit them, but I said that you can't, so they said if they could visit you so they can know you. They live in Katy, Texas, 4 hours from Fortworth. Maybe you can send the missionaries to them. Let me know. Tomorrow Monday I will be calling the other Desposorios I met through the Phone back in August, and who lives in NYC, Miami, and Los Angeles. That way, I can follow up, and keep uniting our relationship. That's all son. Hope you are having wonderful spiritual experiences. Love Dad.

It was just like last year that he left, he went to Spain huh? Yeah, time does fly by. Anyway, I did get a letter from Sophia's friend, I didn't even know who it was. Yeah so, I hope everyone had a good Valentines Day. everyone else that we had lined up for baptism isn't going very well. Juan Ramirez hasn't been to church in a long time. Maribel and her brother and sister aren't going to come to church anymore because Maribel said that her brother and sister weren't very comfortable in church and she wants to at least take them to SOME church. So they're going to the Catholic church. It sucks because Maribel is so cool and she's been reading the Book of Mormon and she understands a lot about it and a lot of the principles of the Gospel. I don't know, we'll just have to keep working with them. As for Marisol and Osiel.. we can never get a hold of them and they didn't go to church today or last week either. So we have a lot of work to do here. Well, other news.. I heard last week that the world was supposed to end on Saturday. I guess that didn't happen huh? I hear everything is messed up in the world and it's pretty scary. I heard that someone was going to drop of bomb of Small Pox and that everyone had to stay indoors and tape up their windows with plastic. That's messed up! Anyway... sounds like everything over there is going okay and you guys are doing good. Well, tell Sophia and Stephanie to write me, okay? Bye--

Yeah, you know what the strange part about that is? I always liked that Kolob song but I never looked up the reference before. And then when I was reading in the Pearl of Great Price I read that same scripture but I didn't know that it was on the song. But I liked the scripture so I put it for my plaque. And then in the MTC I looked down at the reference in "If You Could Hie to Kolob" and I saw that it was the same, (or about the same) scripture as it was on my plaque. Isn't that weird?? Anywho, that's pretty cool that you guys are getting puppies. At first when Stephanie said that you guys were getting rid of Rinny I was going to say no. But then you said that you're gonna give it to Summer and so now it's okay. There's this big old Great Dane dog that we pass by here almost everyday and it's HUGE! Now when I get back from my mission I'm gonna get a big old Great Dane and a German Shephard. Yeah, I'm sorry pops that last week I forgot to tell you HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Yeah, did you guys get my Valentines cards that I sent you?? Did my mom get hers too? Anyway, it sounds like you all are doing good. I'm glad that Sarah and Sophia still care about Fred.

Son, Today at priesthood I've found out through Felix that this is your favorite hymn. It happened when we were singing and I told Felix, Hey this song has the same message as Freddy's favorite scripture which is in his missionary plaque and in the Homepage of this site, and he told me, that's his favorite hymn! Anyway, I wrote it for you:

IF YOU COULD HIE TO KOLOB

If you could hie toKolob in the twinkling of an eye, and then continue on ward with the same speed to fly. Do you think that you could ever, through eternity find out the generation where Gods began to be? Or see the grand beginning, where space did not extend? or view the last creation, where Gods and matter end? Me think the spirit whispers, "No man has found pure space nor seen the outside curtains, where nothing has a place. The works of God continue, and worlds and lives abound; improvement and progression have one eternal round. There is no end to matter, There is no end to space, There is no end to spirit; There is no end to race.

What a great message! I'm really proud of you. Dad

Hello everybody, I'm doing pretty good over here. Right now is an exciting time for us because right now we have A LOT of people commited for baptism. We met this cool new lady named Maribel and she is so into the Gospel. She lives with her 2 sisters, 1 brother and her daughter. Also we have a lady named Martha and she has two member friends that live in the same apartment complex as she does and they started going to church and Martha came with them twice. It was sweet. We also have another lady named Marisol (like my Aunt's name) and her husband Osiel. They're cool too. They both said yes to getting baptised and they have a 9 year old son and a 7 year old daughter. We also have Juan still commited. On Sunday there was a new thing that was starting up. The Lewisville/Flower Mound members don't go to the Farmers Branch branch anymore. We now attend with the Flower Mound 4th ward in a bilengual ward. It was all because of Elder Frost. He got it the whole thing moving to get services here in Lewisville. The chapel is right on the border of Lewisville and Flower Mound. Flower Mound is west of Lewisville. Yeah so yesterday was the first day that we met together in that branch and all the guero leaders from that ward just wanted all the Hispanics coming in to their ward to feel welcome and it worked out. Everybody liked it and there are a lot of people in that ward now, it's pretty cool. Sunday was a good day. So I heard about the shuttle thing. Me and my companions were driving down the streets and seeing all of the American flags down half-way. (by the way, here in Lewisville they have A LOT of American flags EVERYWHERE. PLUS, they're HUGE! They've got so many huge flags all arouind accompanied by the Texas flag.) Yeah, so then we went home and had a message on our answering machine from the Zone Leader telling us what happened and told us if we find any pieces of the shuttle to not to pick it up and report it to the police. They said that a bunch of pieces landed in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I've also heard of a bunch of pieces found near here. Well, that's about it. Later-

My dear Elder, I'm sending this post a little bit earlier. The news has being going on all day long today about the Space Shuttle that exploted early this morning. Tell me if this has happened anywhere close to where you are. What a devasting thing! Anyway, last night Friday, I was in the Temple and guess whom I saw after a long time, Bishop Kerry Graves. He was with his father and two of his brothers. He introduced them to me. They all look as nice as him. Kerry told them that we used to be in the same ward and that he was my son's Boy Scout Leader. I told them they got a great son who is now a bishop, and that he was a great influence in my son's life and in his youth. Kerry told me that he got a letter from you. That was a nice surprise for me. it made me very happy. He said that now he needs to write you back, and I said that you'll be very happy to hear from him, but to do so on his time, when he can. I'm sure he may be a busy man now. Well my son, Sophia is coming to our ward this Sunday and told me that she will keep attending our ward. The great news I got about this, was when I redeemed myself because of my lonliness and following the promptings I felt like calling her and I told her that I missed her a lot and that I felt very lonely without her and I told her that she could stay at her mom's if that will make her very happy, and she said yes with one condition, that if she could keep coming to our ward. That's exactly what I wanted to ask her. Well, dad is now happy. Do you know that there is a new release movie named "Return Missionary," it starts today, but I'm going to watch it on my b-day. Great present, eh? Take care my missionary, til we see again. Dad

I was going to say it was him last time but I thought you already knew. So, how's everything going at home? Everything here is going pretty good. Also, we have 3 good people promised for baptism. We've got Juan, a lady named Martha, and another lady named Marivel. Yeah so, it's going pretty good here. Well, I'm going to see if you're online right now, so I'll send this post message.

Son, Maybe they don't have this tradition in your mission field, but if you like the idea, is that I can order a lot of those pictures of you, which is in the front of this page, in wallet size. That's the size we used, and I can send them to you so you can give them to your families or friends. It's up to you. Son, about your questions for that prescription, which Doctor was, Dr. Kenneddy or who? That will help me to speed up the process. Thank you. Love, Dad

Hey pops, I like your dream, it's sounds good. I hope that everything goes well in your life. Just keep praying and try to understand what the Lord wants for you and what he thinks is best. I'll keep praying for you, all of you, okay? Here everything is good. We have a new companion so now we're three. His name is Elder Owens and he was called to go to Venezuela but they're having problems down there. Anyway, I couldn't write on Monday because it was Martin Luther King Day and the library was closed. Well, now it's Wednesday and we took some time to check e-mail and such. Hey, I sent you a letter with a check that Uncle Wilmer and Aunt Meg sent me but I couldn't cash it. Try to see if you can, okay? Juan isn't getting baptized this Sunday because we haven't been able to get together to teach him the 5th and 6th discussions and so we'll have to keep teaching him. But he said that he IS going to get baptized so I'm not worried that he won't or that he'll change his mind or anything like that. Well, I'll write you guys on Monday, okay? And take care, take care at work and at home and keep going to chuch, okay? I hope everything goes good for you guys, I miss you. Bye -Elder Freddy Desposorio

Dear Elder Freddy Desposorio, How is everything going down there? Here we are doing just fine. Well, Sophia has been living with her mom for a week now, and I miss her very much altough she may not think so. It's hard, but anyway. Elder Freddy, tell me what kind of pictures are you going to use to give away to your investigators and companions once you move from place to place. The reason I ask this is, because on my mission, the Mission Home had a good system with a Studio to have all missionaries take a picture for 1 year supply, and we gave these away to our investigators and friends. Tel me how I can help. Love you always, Dad.

Hey Dad, I have only 19 minutes left on this computer so I have to write you right now. How's everything going right now? Is there anything new? Felix told me about Gerald's wedding and that's cool. I wish I could've gone. Yeah, yesterday it snowed here. Did it snow over there? It was snowing during church and me and Elder Frost got a flat tire on our car when we were leaving the church parking lot to go pick meet up with some investigators so they could follow us to church. We had to get out in the wet and cold to change the tire and I got a picture of Elder Frost at that time. Yeah, so, today we didn't go play basketball so we got here at about 10:10 am CT (9:10 MT) So how's everything going over in Lonely Provo? yeah, it's pretty good here. Let me send this e-mail to you right now okay? Hey pop, I only have 8 minutes now so I'll finish my e-mail. Everything is good here. But I won't be able to reply to your e-mail until next week becuase I don't have more time left. Guess what? on Wednesday we had a Zone Conference for the Spanish Zone and I got to see all the guys from the MTC District. I saw Elder Blanchard, Elder Healey and Elder McKeon. They're all doing good too and I was happy to talk with all of them. I hope that some day in the future I'll be companions with at least one of them. Yeah, so write me back okay? How's everyone doing over there? Is Rinny still there with you guys? And the birdies? That's good. Well, I'll talk to you next week okay? Bye - Elder Freddy Desposorio

Elder Freddy Desposorio Dear Son, This is part of the email I sent you the second time: You are a great son, a humble one and a chosen spirit. I'm so greatful to have a son serving the Lord as a missionary. May the Lord always bless you so that your faith can be as strong as a rock. I love you and I always pray that you may be able to have the richest experiences teaching the gospel. I hope that you may be able to baptize this young man or investigator you were telling me about. Hopefully you will baptize him, because when I was a missionary sometimes I had a broken heart when I was so excited of getting ready with some investigators to baptize them after the last discussion, but overnight they changed their mind, or they were not ready to be baptized when the District Leader interviewed them. I've learned that men are human beings and that men have a lot of sins hidden, or at least twice as much than LDS members, and that's life, that's OK. But ihave also learned that the gospel is to bring them out from their captivity. I just pray that you don't have too many of these investigators or too many broken hearts like dad did. I pray that at least you may pray the Lord so that he can lead you to those of open hearts and those that are ready to accept the Gospel. Any way, please tell me more about your investigators, and I will share you some Teaching techniques. In the meantime, always share your humble testimony with authority (as you have been called from God) and with the spirit, and with love, and you shall see the resutls. Here, I am with these trials with Sophia. She wants to go and live with her mother. And I too want her to live with me so that I can have her succeed in school and at church. That's my only worry, but she doesn't vision that far. Anyway... Felix wants to go on a mission. He is so humble too. I just hope that the WAR that is about to start, would not stop the spreading of the Gospel and the direction the Church is leading towards, or I hope that somehow this war will not be an obstacle for "Missionary Work," and that the missionaries will not be returned home, as prophecied for the latter days, at least for another few years, so that Felix can also go on a mission, and not serve in the Armed Forces. As you know, I do not support War or Military Forces at all, nor will I encourage that to my son. I am opposed to War. I'd rather have my sons be soldiers of the Lord, of his kingdom and of his gospel than wasting time or killing people, it does not matter if it is for defending the sovereingty of country. All, it matters is defending the Church and the Gospel when they will be really in Jeopardy (When? Prophecies said when the Saints will be persecuted and be forced to resign to their faith or be put to death. Then that's the real time to show our courage and manhood. At that time I hope that those that supported war will not chicken out and give in easily their faith and testimony just because they were told to choose between life or death.) May the Lord bless us when that day comes. You and Felix are very humble and obedient ones. May the Lord's will be done. Take good care of you. Love Dad

I remember that wish from Alma: "Oh, if I just were an Angel..." Alma wanted to be a great missionary and convert thewhole world,or at least bring the chosen souls to Heavenly Fatherby preaching them the gospel. Love You and good luck. Dad

Hey dad, Yeah, I'm sorry to hear about you and Audrey. I think it was you that told me on my other e-mail account, Sophia or Felix didn't tell me. Anyway, like I told Felix, tell me anything about what you guys are going through it's okay, I don't get unfocused here. Hey, did you see the changes I made to DearElder? Yeah, so check it out. Hey, guess what? By the end of my mission I'm going to speak Spanish like a Mexican saying, "orale" and "andale" and "mande?" Yep, I hear those all the time and pretty soon I'm going to catch on to it. My companion Elder Frost has already gotten used to saying those. Plus I'll talk different English too. I'll probably say "y'all" (meaning, you all) because everybody says that. For example: "Are y'all coming or what?" Yeah, there's an example used in a sentence. Well, I haven't been using those terms that I mentioned yet, but I fear that soon I will as the days, months and years go on. Hey, have a good Christmas over there y'all. It was sunny yesterday and today exactly right now it's raining and it's cold. The days previous in the past week were pretty nice, it was nice and sunny. Tell me how it is in Utah, is it snowing yet? Well, just reply to my e-mail telling me whatever you want to tell me, okay? thanks. bye - Elder Freddy Desposorio -

Today in my sunday school class, we were having a lesson about Christmas and also about how my teacher went on her mission to France during Christmas and it made me think of you, and how you'll be there(in Texas) too during Christmas. And you know I felt really proud that my brother is there on a mission teaching the people and letting them know about our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and how you'll probably be telling them the story about when Christ was born, and what a beautiful story it is.

Elder Freddy Desposorio

Dear Son,

HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

My best wishes to you from the bottom of my heart.

What a better place on earth to be than on a mission and serving the Lord Jesus Christ. Just now when the whole world is trying to celebrate the birth of Christ, but do not know how to celebrate it. Most of them because they do not have the light of the Gospel, others because they lack of faith. How fortunate we are and to have known the gospel from our parents and grand parents, and that you are a missionary, proclaiming of good tidings to the world. May the Lord bless you for ever and ever.

Son, how great and blessed you may feel that you have completed reading the Book of Mormon. Isn't that great? Now you can feel with more authority to go and preach your fellowman. That's exactly what happened to me, "the spirit of conversion." My life was never the same, and my personality completely changed during my mission, that my parents never recognized me again. You are such a special spirit and a noble one. Always please the Lord, and he will reward you from above.

We are here OK. I can't believe Christmas is here again. Time has really gone that quick.

I feel much better now, even though I'm alone again, not that I would say that I'm happy or that I like that, but that my faith has gotten stronger, and this comes when one is lonely, is rejected or feel pain. It is there when one gets humble, if one remembers the Lord and pray to him, then one becomes more Christlike. That's what I'm learning more and more. Perfection is but a process, a step by step formula, just like Christ, he had to grow precept upon precept.

My son, May this Christmas be a time of joy with your companion.

I love you. Stephanie and I, always pray every night for you. Same we pray when we get together with Fekix and Sophia to have family prayer. Thank you for your prayers as well.

Happy Holidays,

Dad

But if she doesn't want to I can send her letters. Well, on Tuesday I couldn't call her because the phone card was out and the plane was leaving so I had to go. I tried calling her in Phoenix but no one was there and I guess she was already at work. But I can call for Christmas and I'll get to talk to her and that'll be good. Well, I had to reactivate my accounts because they haven't been in use so if you were tryting to send me e-mail and it wasn't working, then that's why it wasn't working. Well, I guess I'm doing okay, it's just that I'm shy and don't really talk to new people that well. But I'm doing better and hopefully I can overcome that. Well, I'm going to e-mail everyone else. Oh yeah, I can only e-mail my family so I can't e-mail other people. I can recieve e-mails from people that aren't my family but I can't write them back. Pretty wierd huh? Yeah so you can e-mail me at sliver_3@hotmail, elderdesposorio@hotm­ail, or elderdesposorio@yaho­o. Well I'll talk to you later. Bye -Elder Freddy Desposorio

REFERENCE: Elder Freddy Enrique Desposorio

Dear Brother Desposorio:

We are pleased to welcome your son to the Texas Fort Worth Mission. It was wonderful to share some time in the Mission Home with your missionary. Be assured all is well and a great experience will be enjoyed during this time of service. We hope this photograph will symbolize for you our desire to work as a team with this fine missionary in accomplishing the purposes for which he was called. Please note that his release date is currently scheduled for October, 2004. You will receive more information about this as that date approaches.

We encourage you to write your son often expressing love and support for this great work. Missionaries feel the prayerful strength of their loved ones. As missionaries choose to be spititually prepared, obedient in all things, and faithful to their covenants, they can fully realize all the great blessings the Lord has in store for them.

If you sense or hear of a concern about your missionary please call us. We ask that you not phone or accept phone calls from your missionary without first speaking with the Mission President. This time honored mission rule allows the missionary to experience personal growth and independence.

May the Lord bless you and your family as you share your son with those he is called to serve.

Sincerely,

William W. Tanner

President

December 1, 2002 Elder Freddy Desposorio, My dear Son: My desire is for you to have a very nice trip towards Texas, and a rewarding Mission for your next 22 months left. You are probably very excited to move to the next step as a missionary, which is to "Go ye through out the world and call unto repentance and baptize my people." Son, today I had a beautiful Sunday. I enjoyed listening the testimonies of the brothers and sisters. Also, every Sunday I stop on the Hallway, by the bulletin board and see your missionary picture and read and re-read your Scripture Passage from your Mission Plaque, and I enjoy it so much because it is a very inspired statement. Today, I invited Sarah at 4:00 PM to join us for dinner, and I cooked a lot of stuff specially for her. I cooked a delicious soup, rice, roast beef, lasagna, sweet potatoes and corn. Sarah liked the soup, very much. Today I have also gone to visit uncle George and he says hi for you. He asked me for your Mission Address. He is a great man. I also watched the Christmas message from the First Presidency. In summary, it was a beautiful Sunday. Once you arrive on your Mission field, we probably won't get letters from you at the beginning, because you will be lost, and new with a new companion. How exciting! Then you will be settled and ready to write us. We are waiting and will be looking for that time anxiously. We didn't get your letters this thanksgiving weekend, maybe it was because the Post Office are delayed with delivering because of the 2 days Holidays. I'm sure we will get your letter tomorrow Monday and will get instructions of the time when you are going to call us on Tuesday from the Airport. We will be ready. Your mom is also aware that you will call them. Don't forget to tell Sarah to call you back from her cellular so you can save money. May the Lord bless you always. Love, Your Dad

Wow, two months went by pretty quick. Well, I wish you the best of luck out there, on the trip there, and while there too. How was your thanksgiving? Mine was good, we ate at Em-par-atrice's house, and at my mom's. It was a nice weekend, till I got sick. Don't I always get sick around this time of year!

Nov 26, 2002 Freddy(aka Elder) HI whats up, i'm not in a good moood right now because i'm sick. I keeps sneezing and coughing, I didn't even go to school today. Today is tuesday and we only had school today and yesterday cause for Thanksgiving break. So how is everything going? Are you excited that your going to be leaving next week for Texas? I know that your ready to go out there and teach the gospel, it'll be a great experience for you. I don't know if I want to go on a mission yet, maybe I don't know. But yeah I know this is a really short e-mail, but I'll write you a real note on paper later(my dad keeps bugging me to write to you the cool new internet way) oh well. But i'll write you a letter probably tomorrow, oh and I'll send you a group picture of my Halloween Dance okay. Well gotta go, I love you. Love always,your lil sis, ~Sophia~

Nov 20, 2002 Dear dad, Thanks for your letter. Guess what happened today. About 890 new missionaries came today and that was bastante porque there were a lot of them around. It was actually kind of annoying because we had to move out of our way just for them. Por ejemplo, during meals we had to walk outside all the way around all these buildings just to get to class. The bookstore was closed for a long time because that's where all the new missionaries get their new stuff. By the way, I have to pay $75 for the Twinrix Hepatitis shot that I got today. Should I use my money or will you send more? They said that I have to pay it before I leave. Well also, I'm so glad to hear about little Wil's baptism, I wanted to be there. Also, I wanted to be at Gerald's wedding in January. I just thought about how I want to be in the temple when people I know get married. I know that they probably won't get married in the temple though, but I just thought of that. Also, I will pray for you. I was going to pray for you when I read about you meeting that lady, and once you said to pray for you I said of course. Hey, I'm sorry to hear about Papa Dionicio, I hope everything goes well with him and Mama Rosa. By the way, I wanted to tell you that, remember when I came in to the MTC and I had a cold? Well I haven't had anything since then and all I really needed was cough drops the first couple of days and I haven't been sick since then. So I don't need any medicine, but thanks for asking. By the way, how old is Audrey? Just wondering. Sincerely, Elder Freddy Desposorio P.S. I have less than 2 weeks left here in the MTC. Pretty scary huh? Did I tell you that you can't come to the airport? I can call you guys (my family) though. Also, another inconvenience with the new missionaries today is that we don't have gymnasio hoy, because they need to use 19M. That's what we're supposed to have right now, but I'm writing to you.

Nov 20, 2002 Dear Elder Desposorio, How are you doing? Well i'm here stitting at home, I got home a while ago from a wrestling Match. Mike Pinned Ammon Malone, Mike did real good, he looked solid, and came out with the pin. Unfortunately Myke got pinned by Ian Greer, he did real good though, he toughed it out with him, a couple times I thought he had him, but he made a little mistake towards the end, which cost him the match. Sean's match was real good, he wrestled some Zack kid. It wasn't too far into the first period when Sean pinned him. Sean looks real solid this year,I wouldn't doubt it if he went to state this year. he looks good and comfortable on the wrestling mat. Speaking of Matt, he was also the ref. This match was a match to see who would be starting this year on varsity and such, and to show who ever came how good the wrestlers are. Mike should be starting 135, Sean already had the start from the beginging, he'll be 165, and Myke looks like he'll have to work his way through the pack this week, i'm sure he'll beat Ian. Anyway, I just thought i'd tell you how things are going for the guys. They look like they might have a fun and succesful wrestling season this year. Well keep working hard, I know I say this all the time, but I also know that you're doing your best in there, and in less than 3 weeks you'll be out in the field, doing what you've been tought to do, I know you'll try your best, cause I know when you set your mind to something you stick to it, and this is a good thing you're doing, and you're a good man to do it, you're a good brother, I miss you a lot, we'll have to jam when you get back, there's no one here that want's to jam with me, but I know you will. Write me back you here. your brother, Felix Desposorio

Nov 19, 2002 Elder desposorio, Dear Son: Sorry that you have not received any letter yet this week. Your brothers should be sending you tomorrow. That's right, we got your letter yesterday Monday, this time, maybe it's because of what you said. Any way, On Sunday, we all went to Wilmercito's Baptism. It was at 6:00 PM. He turned 8 years old on Sunday. Aunt Meg's parents were here and they say hi for you. Uncle George was also there, and Gerald with his fiancee. They are getting married on Jan 10. I gave the closing prayer. Wauu... Freddy, that's great you have gained few pounds. Keep it up! Grand Pa Dionicio and Mama Rosa won't be able to come for thansgiving. They had to change their plans because Papa Dionicio got sick. He has problem with his Collon... I don't know how's that spelled, but it's by the rectum, and the Doctors said that he needs a surgery. We'll see what happens. Besides this, we all here seem to be pretty well. No great news, life is the same. Your mom seems happier, same as Sarah. Sophia and Felix are fine, no great news of girl or boy friends (neither from Sarah). About Felix, I see him lonely sometimes, but he is still a great boy. Stephanie, you know, she brings sunshine in my life, and is doing just fine. She is a happy girl. She says she misses you a lot, especially when you used to play with her, because here at home no one likes to play with her. Anyway, she make us laugh. How about you? How you been doing? How's your health? Have you caught a cold or flue yet at MTC? Tell me if you need any other medicine for colds or flue so that I can send it right away. Thanks for the pictures. I will scann them for the website, and then I'll return them to you. Now I need to go to bed. It's 11:36 PM. So you take care like you know how. May the Lord bless you, and don't forget to have that powerful prayer for me and for Audrey. I like her a lot, but the Last word still is not told, but things are going great so far. Love, Your Dad

Dad - How are you? I'm great, thanks for all the things that you've sent. I told Sarah how greatful I am for you and what you do for all us kids. My mailbox # has changed to # 127. Last time it will change. And, add a 1203 to the part of TX-FTW, it just means the date that I leave. Okay, well, I'm done with the first 2 charlas and I'm starting on my 3rd one. I can't believe it took me 1 whole month to memorize just the 1st charla. It only took me 1 week to memorize the 2nd one. My teacher, Hermano Warr, had us make specific goals of when to lograr our metas for memorizing our charlas. I've been doing them very well. My Spanish is better and we talk all the time in Spanish because it's a rule now. Except on Fridays and Sundays because it's P-day and Sunday meetings. By the way, I will only be writing letters on Friday. Maybe sometimes even on Sunday if I need to. I really need to memorize all of the charlas and study the Book of Mormon whenever I have time. And as you know, we don't have much personal time here. Well, it is our 6th week now and we're actually been here for 5 weeks and 2 days. Everything is going great. You guys can write me whenever you want. Please tell me what is going on over there and take care of the family. I pray for you all (my family) every time I pray, except for prayers in class, of course. Well, take care of yourselves. Love you all, Sincerely, Elder Freddy Desposorio

Hola Familia, Me gusta mucho los papeles de el internet-o. Gracias Felix por la lista de los Scripture Mastery. Y, ahora estoy en la lavanderia con mi distrito. Es bueno. Es muy dificil para mi para escribir en Español. Pero, estoy tratando. En Martes yo tenía un corto de pelo cita. Entonces mi pelo esta corto (I think I already told you guys about that) De todos modos, Gracias por esos papeles. Me gusta. Estoy muy tired por tratando a escribir en Español, entonces, voy a escribir en English now, K? Well, yesterday my companion's grandpa died. It was sad to hear about it because he already knew that his other grandpa was going to die because he has cancer. But he didn't die yet. His other grandpa got in a car wreck. He was actually driving a tractor and got hit and died. [HUMOR PHRASE ON LETTER PAPER: "WAIT ELDER! IT'S ONLY A 'DEAR JOHN'] We talked about it in class and it was good. Entonces back to Español. On Martes nosotros ayunemos por el abuelo de Elder Blanchardy mi compañero. El que tiene cancer. Era para que el podía morir porque está en pain todo el tiempo, siempre. Entonces, nosotros 6 en el distrito (los Elderes) todos ayunemos, ayunamos, ayunimos, however you say the preterito tense. Entonces, no tengo tiempo para escribír a Felix pero quiero preguntarte, and mí papá. (my dad) ¿Cuando es su ultimo partido de fútbol Americano de Provo High? Quiero que ganan, estoy feliz que usted y Mike están starting. Voy a get mi segundo rollo de filmo pronto, quisas hoy dia. Y yo casi tengo el tercero film cumplido (done). So, eso es todo. Gracias otra vez por los papeles y las listas. Estoy feliz, =) See? Si puedes, sendar me pictures como yo sendí de yo y mi compañero. ¿Know what I'm sayin'? Sí, entonces, tengan un Feliz de el de los muertos. ¿Halloween? Is that como se dice Halloween? Oh well, also, yo voy a estar aquí en el MTC para el Día de Gracias. Thanksgiving, ¿Sí? Pero cuando yo regreso en el año dos mil cuatro, voy a spend Halloween y Día de Gracias en la hogar. (At Home =) ) So, no se preocupen. Ayer era el dia de nuestro TRES SEMANAS a estar aquí. Es extraño porque yo nunca he estaba lejos de casa por este amount de tiempo. Pero es bueno. Sí, as you can see, necesito practícar mi gramatica más de Español. Espero que están llendo, indo, vando, ...whatever, going a la Iglesia todos los semanas. Yo se que sí están. No pelean mucho, y argue no mucho. Gracias. Sincerely, Elder Freddy Desposorio P.S. in Spanish, is there an accent on the first "E" in the word 'Elder?'

BREVE RESEÑA DE LA HISTORIA DE LOS PRIMEROS NINOS MORMONES EN TRUJILLO Por: Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas Provo, Utah

Sabado, 15 de Marzo del 2003

Creo que la historia de los Mormones en Trujillo, va paralela con la historia de mi vida, donde di mis primeros pasos en los pasillos de la Iglesia Mormona, en su primer local de la AVENIDA ESPANA # ____, y en el segundo local de la Iglesia, en la CALLE PIZARRO # 359 de Trujillo, Peru. La historia de los primeros Ninos mormones en Trujillo, Peru claro, que se inicio con algunos que me antecedieron, ya que aunque ellos no estaban bautizados tampoco, al igual que yo, por ser menores de 8 anos de edad, ya sus padres estaban bautizados desde 1961 al igual que mis tìos. Mis padres recien se bautizaron el 10 de Mayo de 1963. Las charlas fueron dadas por la misionera, Hermana Brown. Yo naci en 1956. Los primeros Misioneros Mormones que llegaban al Peru, se dirigian hacia Lima para hacer Obra Proselitista Mormona desde la sede Sudamericana de la Mision que estaba en Montevideo, Uruguay y en Buenos Aires Argentina. Yo fui bautizado el 1ro de Noviembre de 1969, cuando repentinamente los Elderes Ronald Lund y M. Raun Child, que visitaban a mis padres constantemente descubrieron que yo no estaba bautizado todavia suposicion que hasta yo pensaba que estaba bautizado cuando asistia la iglesia desde los 5 anos de edad con mis tios. Dicha historia, es otro tema a tratar en otra ocasion.

Aunque la historia de los Mormones en Trujillo, se inicio en 1961, cabe decir, sin embargo, que aqui voy a enfatizar el inicio de la Iglesia Mormona en Lima, Peru que fue con la llegada de los primeros Misioneros Mormones a Lima, entre los anos de 1956 a 1959 cuando se fundo la primera Mision Peruana, cuyo nombre oficial fue "La Mision Andina".

Para esto, voy a recurrir a entrevistarme, gracias a que tengo la honra de conocerlos, a Jose Sousa y Juan Uceda Andrade, dos Mormones peruanos y limenos de hace muchos anos pero que ademas son testigos del crecimiento de los Mormones en Peru, habiendo sido llamados como Autoridades y Lideres Misionales, en su epoca.

Tambien me entrevistare con un tal hermano Norteamericano, y que fuimos vecinos aqui en Provo, Utah. Se llama Sheldon Nicolaysen (El fue mi Maestro Orientador de 1996 a 1997 en nuestro Barrio Grand View 6 de Provo, Utah). El fue hermano con quien fue el segundo Presidente de la Mision Mormona que llego al Peru, y que ya a fallecido hace algunos anos.

Tambien me entrevistare con quien admiro mucho, y fue el Segundo Presidente de la Mision de Uruguay, el hermano Lyman Shreeve, a quien conoci en la Universidad de Brigham Young en mi epoca de estudiante, y quien quizo mucho a los Latinoamericanos.

Tambien estoy sumamente agradecido, a quien un dia comparti horas y dias muy valiosos antes de que fallezca en 1985 aqui en Provo (sus restos se encuentran sepultados en el Cementerio de la calle State de Provo), donde vivio los ultimos anos de su vida, a un gran Peruano Mormon quien fue el primer Presidente de Rama y de Distrito de Trujillo. El fue el primer Pionero, incansable, devoto, y fiel hasta sus ultimos dias, y fue, el: DOCTOR ALFREDO PENARRIETA PARKER, natural de Puno, quien emigro a Trujillo, por cuestiones de su trabajo profesional como un gran Medico prestigioso de Trujillo.

Es al hermano Penarrieta a quien le dedico esta historia, porque me facilito sus fotos de la Iglesia en Trujillo, y muchos mas historias cuando le dije que un dia yo escribiria la Historia de la Iglesia Mormona en Trujillo-Peru. Por falta de espacio, no puedo publicar todas las fotos que tengo aqui (ver abajo en Galeria de Fotos), pero cumplo con lo que le prometi al Presidente Penarrieta, como gratitud por aquellas fotos que me facilito, y he aqui esta historia de la Iglesia en Trujillo.

Tambien a el le rindo gracias, por lo que influencio en mi vida cuando yo de nino lo presenciaba dirigir la Iglesia, en la primera Capilla de la Avenida Espana, y que le recuerdo con mas claridad y memoria desde la Capilla, de la Calle Pizarro, en Trujillo. Y tambien le agradezco por lo que influencio en mis padres, para que un dia del ano de 1962 se bautizaran, y por los sabios consejos que les supo dar a mis padres en sus primeros pasos en la Iglesia, y a su adaptacion hacia una vida y cultura nueva "El Mormonismo".

De ellos procedo. Soy producto de todos ellos. A todos ellos agradezco. Tambien a mis primeros tios Mormones, quienes fueron los que refirieron a los Misioneros, para que fueran a visitar a mis padres, para compartirles el evangelio, alla en 1961 y principios de 1963. Estos tios fueron: Maria Jesus Desposorio Urcia, y Domingo Jose Desposorio Urcia, que ya han fallecido, que de Dios gozen y en Paz descasen! Todos ellos fueron Pioneros Mormones de la Iglesia en Trujillo, Peru.

Tambien recurrire a mis siempre recordados y respetados hermanos, que en vida son: Juan Alva Navarrete, Jorge Malca, quienes radican en Peru, y a Manuel Castillo Crespo y Jorge Luis Desposorio Urcia que radican en Utah, USA.




HISTORIA DE LOS PRIMEROS PRESIDENTES DE MISION DE LA MISION ANDINA Por: Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas Provo, Utah

Domingo, 16 de Marzo del 2003

Los primeros tres Presidentes de Mision de la Mision Andina con sede en Lima, Peru fueron los siguientes:

PRIMERO.- Presidente J. Vernon Sharp, 1959-1962 SEGUNDO.- Presidente Sterling Nicolaysen, 1962-1965 TERCERO.- Presidente J. Avril Jesperson, 1965-1968

Hoy pude contactarme con el hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen. What a great man he is. He even remembered the year and the month when such or such thing happened, or when such Elder started his mission, even back to the 1940's.

He aqui un extracto de la informacion que el hno. Sheldon Nicolaysen me ha proporcionado en este dia, y dice:

El Presidente Sterling Nicolaysen fue el 2do Presidente de la Mision Andina de 1962 a 1965.

El Presidente Sterling Nicolaysen es hermano mayor del hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen quien actualmente vive en Provo, Utah. Fueron 6 hermanos, 4 hombres y 2 mujeres. El Presidente vivia en Beverly Hills, California al momento de ser llamado para servir como Presidente de la Mision Andina. Sirvio de Agosto de 1962 a Agosto de 1965. Sterling fue el tercero de los hijos. Fue Misionero de la Mision Hispano Americana con sede en El Paso, Texas. El y su esposa tuvieron 5 hijos: Vivian, que vive en Freemont, California, Beth, David, Gail and Daniel. Sterling Nicolaysen fallecio en el Otono de 1991 con cancer al estomago. Antes de fallecer, dejo una entrevista oral de su vida, cuya historia fue scrita por el Departamento Historico de la Iglesia en Salt Lake, la cual el hermano Sheldon ha tenido la gentileza de ofrecerme una copia de ese libro, despues que yo le habia preguntado si su hermano habia dejado escrito algun Diario Personal como Presidente de Mision, y despues de enterarme que no habia dejado escrito ningun Diario Personal. Al hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen le doy gracias por tal acto bondadoso.




HISTORIA DE LA IGLESIA EN SUR AMERICA Por: Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas Provo, Utah

Sabado 15 de Marzo del 2003

La Iglesia Mormona tuvo su origen en Argentina en los años 1920, aunque en su historia data desde los años 1850 con la llegada de Parley Pratt a Chile, y en los años 1920 con la dedicatoria en Argentina a la Obra Misional por el Elder Melvin J. Ballard.

El hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen me compartio lo siguiente:

A principios de los 1930 Frederick S. Williams es llamado como misionero a Argentina. El fue el tatara-nieto del Elder Frederick S. Williams, Consejero del Profeta Jose Smith. De 1939 a 1942, Frederick S. Williams sirvio como Presidente de Mision en Argentina.

Luego se creo la primera Mision de Uruguay en 1947, siendo llamado como su primer Presidente de Mision otraves el hermano Frederick S. Williams (1947-1951).

Luego el hermano Lyman S. Shreeve es llamado como el 2do Presidente de la Mision de Uruguay de Mayo 1951 a 1954, y llamó como su Consejero al hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen. El hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen fue Misionero en Uruguay desde el 4 de Diciembre de 1949 a Julio de 1952.

En 1950, bajo la direccion del Presidente Williams, llego a servir como misionero al Uruguay, el actual Apostol, el Elder Richard G. Scott. Durante el tiempo del Presidente Shreeve, el hermano Francisco Viñas, quien es actualmente una autoridad de Area de la Iglesia en Uruguay, fue bautizado, cuando su padre se encontraba como prisionero en Espana bajo la Dictadura del General Franco. El hermano Nicolaysen fue quien confirmo como miembro de la Iglesia a la hermana Viñas.

El hermano Lyman Sidney Shreeve, Senior fue Profesor de Literatura y Espanol en la Universidad de Brigham Young. Fallecio el 5 de Junio del 2002. Dias antes de fallecer, tuve la oportunidad de reencontrarme con el hermano Shreeve cuando me encontraba caminando por el pasillo del University Mall de Orem, Utah. Me encontraba junto a mi hijo quien acababa de recibir su Llamamiento Misional, el Elder Freddy E. Desposorio Jr. para servir en Texas Fortworth Mission; nos encontrabamos comprando sus libros y matreiales misional en el Deseret Book. Anteriormente al fallecimiento del hermano Shreeve, habia fallecido su esposa, hermana Afton Kartchner Shreeve, en enero del 2001. los cuerpos de ambos yacen enterrados en el "East Lawn Memorial Hills Cemetery" (Edgemont Cemetery) de Provo. El hermano Shreeve realizo muchas actividades a favor de los Latinos en BYU, y en recuerdo a su amor por El Uruguay, mision querida.

Tambien los Nicolaysen han dejado una rica historia de la "Obra Misional" para la Iglesia en Sudamerica. El primero de ellos fue el hermano Timothy Nicolaysen, que ha servido como Presidente de la Mision de Caracas, Venezuela de 1998 al 2001. Timothy fue hijo de Stanley Nicolaysen, y Stanley es sobrino del hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen. Actualmente Timothy vive en Draper, Utah.

Por Uruguay han pasado misioneros recordados y queridos, como el Elder J. Thomas Fyans en 1947 bajo el Presidente de Mision Frederick Williams, Elder Gene R. Cook en 1961 tambien bajo el Presidente Frederick Williams, Elder Freddy Enrique Desposorio de 1975 a 1977 bajo su Presidente de Mision Gene R. Cook, y muchos mas.

Fueron Presidentes de Mision del Uruguay, los siguientes:

(1)Frederick S. Williams. (2)Lyman S. Shreeve. (3)Gardner H. Russell. (4)Marion C. Robinson. (5)Lynn G. Robbins. (6)Frank D. Parry. (7)Timothy M. Olson. (8)Kevin E. Monson. (9)J. Thomas Fyans. (10)William N. Jones. (11)Arthur M. Jensen. (12)F. Burton Howard. (13)R. Quinn Gardner. (14)C. Scott Grow. (15)Robert L. Marchant. (16)Gene R. Cook. (17)Waldo P. Call, Sr. (18)Joseph K. Brooks. (19)James R. Barton. (20)Eduardo Ayala.





MAS RESEÑA SOBRE LA HISTORIA DE LOS MORMONES EN SUD AMERICA Por: Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas Provo, Utah

Jueves, 27 de Marzo al 16 de Abril del 2003

En estas semanas he encontrado un extracto de lo siguiente, en mi Diario Misional Personal, Tomo I, Pagina 136-137 que dice:

En 1852...Parley P. Pratt...y su esposa...regresaron de su mision en Chile. El entusiasmo les embargaba debido al potencial de la actividad misional en el area andina...

En Julio de 1926 (año en que nacio el papa de Freddy Enrique) el Elder Melvin J. Ballard estableció la Mision de Sudamericana en Buenos Aires, Argentina. En...1927 y a solicitud de la Primera Presidencia, se hizo un estudio para determinar la posibilidad de la obra misional en Peru por el Elder J. Vermon Sharp.

En el Peru, la Obra Misional comenzo a ser organizada en Septiembre de 1959 por el Elder Harold B. Lee, quien cito las siguientes palabras profeticas dichas en 1926 respecto a America del Sur por el hermano Ballard:

"...La Obra del Senor crecera aqui lentamente por un tiempo, de igual manera que un roble crece lentamente de una botella. No germinara en un dia como el girasol que crece rapidamente y luego muere. Pero miles se uniran a la Iglesia y se dividiran en mas de una mision y seran de las mas fuertes en la Iglesia. La obra aqui es todavia pequena pero vendra el dia en que los lamanitas de esta tierra tengan una oportunidad. La Mision Sudamericana sera un pilar de la Iglesia..."





LOS MORMONES EN PERU Por: Freddy Enrique Desposorio Cubas Provo, Utah

Jueves, 17 de Abril del 2003

Hoy fui a la casa del hermano Sheldon Nicolaysen a recoger el Libro que me habia ofrecido. Que entusiasmo ver su contenido, y encontrar una rica historia de la Mision en el Peru. En la pasta del libro dice:

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" ORAL HISTORY PROGRAM

STERLING NICOLAYSEN

Interviewed by William Hartley

En la primera pagina se encuentra la siguiente foto del Presidente de la Mision, Sterling Nicolaysen con su esposa y sus hijos en el Peru (ver abajo en Galeria de Fotos).

Un resumen del Prefacio de este libro, dice:

"Sterling sirvio como Presidente de la Mision de los Andes de Agosto de 1962 a Agosto de 1965. El reemplazo al Presidente J. Vernon Sharp quien fue el primer Presidente de la Mision, y Nicolaysen fue reemplazado por el Presidente J. Avril Jesperson. Durante sus tres anos en la mision el Presidente Nicolaysen tuvo la responsabilidad de la obra proselitista en el Peru, asi como para con todos los miembros de la Iglesia de las Ramas y Distritos del Peru, mas tarde en su mision, el envio Misioneros hacia Bolivia para aperturar la primera obra misional en tal pais. Las experiencias de su Presidencia Misional son los principales temas a tratar en esta Historia Oral..." Asi dice en el prefacio.

Para prepararse con este proyecto de la historia oral, el hermano Hartley consulto con la historia oficial detallada de la Mision de los Andes; converso con el experto del Departamento de Sur America, Gordon Irving, y reviso el Programa de Historia Oral; "Guia para entrevistar a Presidentes de Misiones". El que fue entrevistado (Presidente Nicolaysen) no tuvo Diarios Personales del que el o el entrevistador podian consultar sobre las experiencias de la Mision de los Andes...

Esta historia quedó inconclusa. Si alguien desea continuarla y tiene el espíritu de hacerlo puede ponerse en contacto con Freddy Enrique Desposorio al 377-0244 ó Celular. : 687-2551

Si desean sacarle copia al Libro de “La Historia Oral de Sterling Nicolaysen” o ver más Fotos, yo puedo prestarles. F.D.

 14 - BIOGRAPHICAL PROFILE OF FELIX DESPOSORIO, 2003

By Freddy Enrique Desposorio

May 20, 2003

As a father of Felix Desposorio, I would like to say that my son was born on April 5, 1985 in Trujillo, Peru while I was working abroad for the L.D.S. Church Educational System.

Felix and the rest of the family came back to America after a two year assignment in South America, on August 6, 1985. Although he is a U.S. Citizen, we also think his heart would be for Peru someday when he returns to visit the land of his ancestors.

My son is the third oldest child out of five children. I remember I named him, “Felix Eduardo” as a family traditional way. His mom and I used the initials “F.E.” “F” for his first name and “E” for his middle name. We used these initials to name all of our sons who would be born. These initials were after his dad’s name initials. Thus, Felix Eduardo was named like that. The name Felix, is after his grandfather, and the name Eduardo is after his uncle. He could not carry his dad’s name because his oldest brother was named after me, his dad.

Felix has always been a special boy, a very dear child to his parents. He is a very obedient child, and has always liked to help at home whenever mom or dad asked him for help. He helped washing the dishes since he started school at Kinder Garden. I remember sometimes when I arrived home from work, seeing him standing on a chair and helping his mom, and then taking out the garbage.

Felix is a very active person, either in sports or in church activities, and even in playing with his friends. One night, when he was five or six years old, he had a terrible accident at a church activity, during a Tent Show. He fell down from the tall ladder of the stage where it stands behind the curtains and which it is to connect to the attic. Felix and his friends were playing, climbing the ladder and he was all the way up, while dad and mom were the Masters of Ceremony for the show. When this accident happened, I remember as I was conducting the Show with my wife then, how the people were gathering at the front of us, helping a little child who was bleeding from his forehead. When I was told that he was my child, I run to the crowd, and there he was, with a terrible purple and a swollen eyebrow, and at the same time he was vomiting. I had to be excused and took my child to the emergency Hospital in Provo, Utah. There I stood until he was taken cared by the doctor. I got relieved after he started moving.

This and other interesting accidental stories are part of his life. He is a fortunate child to be alive up to this day. Now he is 18 years old. Time has gone fast. He is planning to be an LDS missionary and he is learning to take care of himself.

 17 - HISTORIA PERSONAL DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO, 2005: Encontrando a los Misioneros que me bautizaron en 1969










 18 - HISTORIA PERSONAL DE FREDDY DESPOSORIO 2005: Los Misioneros que me bautizaron

December 13-14, 2005

Provo, Utah

Today I have a neat story to write:

Yesterday 12 of December I was curious to check in the internet, Google, the names of the Elder missionaries who baptized me, so that I can contact them.

This story began to develope (once and for all) last Friday December 9, 2005 when I decided to go to the Church adult dance to see if I can meet someone special.

There I met this Lady by the name of Lisa Tanner who has one child of four years old, very pretty and who got divorced a month ago. So she is single and available. While we were dancing for the second time. I asked her how many children she has, and she asked me the same question. Then she asked what my five children's names were.

After that, I asked her if she has served a mission. She did serve in Chicago, Illinois. She asked me if I had served too. I said, yes, in Uruguay. Then she asked me where I was from. I said Peru. She got surprised and asked where about. When I said Trujillo, she replied that her dad served his mission in Peru. I was astonished to hear that, so I asked her in what year. When she said that he was a missionary there during 1968, I replied: "Oh, really? I was baptized in 1969. You know? I always wanted to know where are the missionaries who baptized. I would like to see them. You know, I want to see again the missionary who baptized me and his companion. His name I was Elder Child, that's all I remember. Maybe, you can ask your dad to see if he knew them. One of the Elder's name was Elder Child. Could you please check with your dad?" She replied: "Certainly, I will."

Then, we danced for a little more while. Then, she needed to go to pick up her child from the babysitter, so I asked if I could walk her to her car. I was happy when her response was positive. She first need to look for her sweater. I helped her find it; it took a while to find it. Then, she needed it to get her overcoat and we went to get it from the closet; it's ver cold and icy nowadays. Then I walked her out to her car. It was nice to do so. I haven't asked for this for a long, long time.

During the weekend, I was thinking about the names of the missionaries who baptized me, and I was wondering how I could find them if I never get to hear or see Lisa again.

I knew that for many years before, as I was growing and maturing, I was anxious to contact the missionaries who baptized me so that I can remember my chidlhood and go back to history for my memories. By then, I was a return missionary. I was a former Leader of the Church Educational System, and I always heard neat stories of brethren of how they have re-encounter the missionaries who baptized them. And I also wanted the same miracles to happen to me. So I shared and asked through out my life to members about how can I contact them. So, I always wanted to go to the Church's offices in Salt Lake City or write them a letter so that they can help me locate the address or phone numbers of the Elders. I never did write to the Church Office nor went there to ask for this quest, but I remember calling one time to the Offices in Salt Lake and told them of my wish to find these missionaries, and they said that they would research this for me and let me know if they finf their current address or something, but I neve heard a word of it.

On Monday, yesterday morning, before I lef to work, I went to my living room to check on my Missionary Journal for the Personal Data of my early life in Church (front pages). I wanted to verify who and what was the correct name of the missionary who baptized me. For my surprise, I was wrong, it was not Elder Child who baptized me, but instead, it was Elder Ronald Lund who did baptize me. Elder M. Raun Child was who confirmed me. But in my mind, it was always Elder Child because that was an easy name to remember, whereas, the name Lund was so hard for me to pronounce it. Then I began to recall that I always wanted Elder Child to baptize me, but I think also they both were excited to baptize me, and Elder Lund was given the chance to baptize me.

I wanted to get their names right and memorize them in my mind because I had no pen to write them down at that moment. I wanted to go to my work and check those names in the internet. But when I returned home at night time I remembered that I had not checked the Elders' names at all, and I said: "Why did I forget? But I won't let this day end without checking them in my home computer!"

Finally I got excited of checking their names on the internet. I became convinced that one of these two Elders' names would be in the internet. For years, and after the internet invention, I was always wondering if their names would be in the internet, and I used to conclude that maybe not. Maybe they are not popular or well known, or maybe they may have not done anything as authors or writings, or even worse they are not celebrities. These thoughts are what have influenced in me not to check on the internet.

But yesterday Monday when I woke up I had a clear idea that Why Not? Why would their names may not be there? Why should I not check on the internet? Maybe if I type their names on Google, just like I do to check my own name and my last name to research and to keep doing my Genealogy. Yes, I said I should check them on GOOGLES. Who knows? Something must be there on the internet. I better check their names.

So I did, and this is what I found out. First of all, I first started checking for the name of Elder Ronald Lund. I was very curious to know of what would it bring. For my surprise, the funny thing is that I opened it in order, and the first Page was about a Ronald Lund who was a criminal and sex offender whom I think was a policeman. I decided to look deeply for any clue that he is or was a Mormon, or that he was conected to Utah at all keeping in mind that all this people's background could be from any part of the USA. Since I did not find any clues that led me to that I still had hope that he was not inactive in the church.

So I opened the next name, and the second Ronald Lund was a teacher but to young to be he.

So I skipped to the next name. I opened this Page about a firm of Engineers, and I did not understand at first what this page was about. But I saw the name of Ronald Lund as the Executive or President of the Company along with a list of five or six names as the top list of the personages who has succeded. So I decided to keep checking deeply for any clue about he being a Mormon, and this is what I found out: That he graduated from the University of Utah (this was a great hope for me) and that no one else from that list graduated from the U of U but from other Universities around the State. Then I went deeply to make sure if that page was from Utah or if I could find out more about he being a Mormon or if he ever was in Peru. I could not find anything else in his Personal Resume, but the phone number and address from the Company.

Thereby, I am now even closer to contact the Elder who was changed my life for good and I am going to contact him and thank him for all he has done for me along with Elder Child. May the Lord help me reaching him, since I was not able to find anything about Elder Child. I just hope he has just not died, so that I can have the chance to reunite with both.

THE END

UPDATE: December 14 - 15, 2005

Yesterday the 14th of December, I called to Ronald Lund's workplace in Michigan. The phone number is in his Company's WebSite. I called and left a message on the Company's voice mail and introduced myself and explained what I was calling for, and to please give this message to Ronald Lund. I was so curious to know if he is the person I am looking.

And today by 9:45 am since I have not heard anything from the staff of that Company, I decided to call, and the receptionist answered, and said that she has heard my message and that she had already sent an email to Ronald because he is on a trip, and that hopefully he will return my call. But I was so curious if he was a Mormon so I asked the receptionist if he was a Mormon or not. She said, Yes, and she said that he is still very active in the church. I don't know how she read my thought, but she answered all my questions.

Now, I will just wait for this contact from Ronald Lund. I sure can't wait until I hear his voice and tell him all about it. But mostly I will thank him for what he did in my conversion. I have been very humble all of this week for all that has just happened in my quest to look for him.

 20 - Personal Profile I used in LDSSO

Hi, my native name is Freddy Enrique.

I got an English name and a Spanish name. How about that? World unity, eh! That's me.

My name equals to = Fred Erick = Frederick = Fred Enrique = Federico = FE de Rico (Faith of Richness [but in the spirit]) or just FRED; this is how I like to be called. I would've liked to be called Federrrrrrrrico or Alfredo or Fredenrique in my life, but unfortunately I was not.

I just like my name: Fred -by my associates, or Freddy -by my dear ones and my close "FRiEnDs"(=Fred). That's right I want to be a friend above all.

My style of life, and my way of thinking is not the same as when I was young. My whole life has been tranformed. Church has changed my life in my youth. My LDS mission has changed my life to be an eternal companion. My callings in the church has changed my life to become an eternal father. The gospel and my testimony in the church has kept me enduring through the end. My education at BYU and my daily life education made me become a fair person, charitable, compassionate, and a man who respects his neighbors and his fellowman.
