Week 2

Albania is good! Its different but at the same time it's not all that weird. There's nothing I'm super worried about because it's all in God's hands anyway. One thing I didn't expect was for it to be cold. The last week I have been wearing sweaters and tights, but I guess it is the same for you guy with the snow. The buildings are always super cold (including our house), so we have been turning on the heaters. But with watching Conference this weekend and have lots of lessons in the church, we have been inside a lot so we would go outside to warm up. Because when it does warm up here it gets hot!

My trainer is a good kind of crazy! We have fun. Aren't we all just latter day saint? We are sinners that just keep trying! (one of my favorite talks)

Yes I love the food, the sights and the smells. mostly! Except there is too much smoke, but I can fix that with the gospel! But yes I love them! They are just normal people but sometimes they do the funniest things that just makes me love them more! And their sentence pattern makes me laugh and other times it just confuses me!

Okay so Gerta got baptized on Friday! She is just the greatest human! Setting up the time and place of her baptism was hard and stressful. At one point she said as long as I get baptized that's all that matters right! She is such an example of Christ-like love and patience to me! Her faith is amazing she dropped coffee like it was nothing, they had told her that if she asked the Lord he would help her. So she asked him, and to no surprise, he helped her to have no desire to drink coffee even when it was put right in front of her! She knows the Lord loves her!

I love you all! I always tell people about how my family is the greatest! Tell them all I love them!

  1. Good morning, how are you?

    My name is Emilio, I am a Spanish boy and I live in a town near to Madrid. I am a very interested person in knowing things so different as the culture, the way of life of the inhabitants of our planet, the fauna, the flora, and the landscapes of all the countries of the world etc. in summary, I am a person that enjoys traveling, learning and respecting people's diversity from all over the world.

    I would love to travel and meet in person all the aspects above mentioned, but unfortunately as this is very expensive and my purchasing power is quite small, so I devised a way to travel with the imagination in every corner of our planet. A few years ago I started a collection of used stamps because through them, you can see pictures about fauna, flora, monuments, landscapes etc. from all the countries. As every day is more and more difficult to get stamps, some years ago I started a new collection in order to get traditional letters addressed to me in which my goal was to get at least 1 letter from each country in the world. This modest goal is feasible to reach in the most part of countries, but unfortunately, it is impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, either because they are very small countries with very few population, either because they are countries at war, either because they are countries with extreme poverty or because for whatever reason the postal system is not functioning properly.

    For all this, I would ask you one small favor:
    Would you be so kind as to send me a letter by traditional mail from Albania? I understand perfectly that you think that your blog is not the appropriate place to ask this, and even, is very probably that you ignore my letter, but I would call your attention to the difficulty involved in getting a letter from that country, and also I don’t know anyone neither where to write in Albania in order to increase my collection. a letter for me is like a little souvenir, like if I have had visited that territory with my imagination and at same time, the arrival of the letters from a country is a sign of peace and normality and an original way to promote a country in the world. My postal address is the following one:

    Emilio Fernandez Esteban
    Avenida Juan de la Cierva, 44
    28902 Getafe (Madrid)

    If you wish, you can visit my blog where you can see the pictures of all the letters that I have received from whole World.

    Finally, I would like to thank the attention given to this letter, and whether you can help me or not, I send my best wishes for peace, health and happiness for you, your family and all your dear beings.

    Yours Sincerely

    Emilio Fernandez
