20 years old

So yeah I am now 20 years old. Its so weird to think that I am starting this chapter of my life now. But it is so nice to start moving on the adult things and to move on. Also I was able to skype the family this last Sunday. As a missionary we only get to write our families twice a year, so 4 times as a missionary. And Ive already skyped twice, man the time is flying by so fast. I cant believe it. I really dont have a lot to write you all this week. We are headed to Sincelejo tomorrow for a zone meeting which will be really fun. Also today we discovered a tie shop that sells ties for 10,000 pesos. Which is roghly 3 dollars, what a steel. I hope all is well with you guys at home.

Shout out to all the mothers back at home. Doing their best to teach their kids and being the best people in the world. Without moms I am convinced we would be nothing, so glad that I have had an exeplary of a mother for me in my life. Thank you so much mom and all the other mother figures in my life for helping me get on the mission and being the man I am today.

Also i brought a freaking amazing hammock the other day. It was an early birthday present hahahah it is the best thing after a long day of walking in the scorching heat of Sahagun.

Take care, god speed. --

  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 Colombia? 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 Colombia 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
