August 10 letters

To Mom:

So this week we were able to get a lot of document work done with our families that we are working with and it looks like we will be able to get 3 families baptized either late this transfer or early next transfer. It's been a lot of work but it's really been worth it and we're really excited to be making the final moves in the progression of these families. 

Several of our recent converts had interviews for the priesthood this week which was really nice and hopefully that means that adults won't have to bless and pass the sacrament every week. Getting the youth to do it will be a big step in the progression of the branch. 

The mission should get an aditional 22 missionaries this next transfer which will greatly increase our numbers meaning that we will possibly get a new companionship here in Chimoio which would be really nice and really help the branch a lot. 

We bought a small grill type thing this week (one of the ones you saw in that picture last week). and a grill thing to go on top. Chimoio has the best beef in mozambique so we bought hamburger and made our own hamburgers this week which were way good and this week we're going to do some steaks which are actually pretty cheep and should be pretty good.

To Dad (answering some questions):

Celso is 12 and he is still going super well. I think that our zone is called the quellimane zone but it's just all of the outside areas so we usually just call it the outside area zone.  Before we were only allowed to listen to hymns and now we can listen to any music that will invite the spirit so hip hop no but some of the music that I had will be good so I wanted to grab a few songs. That rule was changed by the new mission president which we are all really excited about.

  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 Mozambique? 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 Mozambique 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
    Calle Valencia, 39
    28903 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
