Bonjour!

I'm seriously running out of titles and things to write in these
weekly emails! All the weeks kind of blend together into one big
experience that gets harder and harder to describe.

Well, this week, we FINALLY found people who are willing to give a
ride to and come to lessons for the big family of seven that we teach
(A. and her family), and then they canceled. Noooooo. But there's
always next week!

A few weeks ago, we contacted a woman named M. She was super nice
and asked us to come back, but she's almost never home. Finally this
week, we passed by and she was there! She almost said that she was too
busy, but then her husband that we hadn't met before yelled out the
door inviting us to come in for a bowl of coffee (they drink hot
drinks from bowls, not mugs here) and so we confirmed that they had
Milo (it's like hot chocolate) and went ahead! They then spent the
next hour telling us about things they don't like about their church,
followed with, 'what do you believe about that', and we just kept
sharing scriptures about what we believe about the given topic. It was
a pretty cool experience, and then they invited us back to share about
the Restoration, so we'll be doing that this week!

In this country, there are only two fast food places, MacDonald's and
a place called Quick. And EVERYONE is obsessed with MacD. The Elders
especially. And they really think it's funny to ask my companion to
get them MacD every time we see them. So at tomorrow's Zone Training
Meeting, we're launching a challenge, and the winner at the end of
next transfer will have MacD, bought by us. We'll see how it goes,
hopefully it motivates and gets the Elders to stop asking us to buy it
for them!

Well, that's it for this week. I love you all!

  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 Vanuatu? 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 Vanuatu 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)
    Spain

    If you wish, you can visit my blog www.cartasenmibuzon.blogspot.com 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
