Working hard and singing solos

Hello Everyone!

Life is treating me well. We are working really hard here.

Some man had a plane in his back yard
Something really cool happened. We are teaching a family that has two recently-baptized sons, but the parents aren't members, neither are they married (I don´t get it--people are together for thirteen years but are scared of marriage, crazy, right?) The mom attends church regularly, and always receives us; we´re pretty much part of the family.  But according to my companion, the father has never participated in anything. So we started talking with him as well, and Sunday morning we passed by their house to see if they were ready. He was sitting on the porch stop, had not showered, obviously had just gotten up. So we invited him to come to church with us. At first he told us that his mom needed his help, and that he had to go, but his wife quickly told us that it was a lie--he didn't have anything to do that morning. So we said, "Brother, we´ll see you there." And left. Five minutes into the service, He walks in with his family, clean and well dressed. Missionaries have been visiting the family for six months. It was pretty nifty that he showed up.

Being in such a small branch/group that is so small is interesting, They put me as hymn conductor, and I pretty much gave a solo--fun stuff!!!

  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 Costa Rica? 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 Costa Rica 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
