Dec. 16

bonjour j'mappel elder crandall and this place is crazy its only been a couple of weeks and it has been a roller coaster of emotions the days here feel like weeks but the weeks feel like days. A lot has happened in the past couple of weeks that I thought would never happen so the friday after i got here I had to teach my first investigator in french. Her name was Brenda and that went bad, it was hard. So let me take you guys through a day in the life of a missionary at the MTC so we wake up every morning at 6 a.m. work out for a couple of mins then we get in the shower and get ready for the day. Then go eat breakfast at 7 after that we go to our classroom and study for an hour, then we would have our first teacher come in how turned out to be brenda her name really is soeur(sir) green she's way cool then she teaches us until lunch which is at 1130. But every class that is taught is taught in french only which is way hard but I've been picking up the language pretty fast. I can understand it more than we can speak it which make it kinda difficult but its what ever. Anyways after lunch we go back to class and meet our other teach soeur cook she is cool all my teachers just got back from Tahiti from their missions. But they have been teaching us and now we have two new investigators soeur cook how is pretending to be cecillia and soeur green who is pretending to be taihani anyway after soeur cook is done teaching we have an hour of study time until dinner then after that we go back to class and prepare our lessons and its pretty boring at times. Then we have gym at 8 then we go back to the res and we hold it down we just said good by to a couple of elders on our floor last night is was sad to see them leave, it was just as hard saying bye to them as it was saying bye to you guys. We only knew them a couple of weeks but it was like we had known them our whole life they were so cool. So let me tell you about my zone/ district, theres only 8 of us right now but we are suppose to get 17 more in our zone. But theres me and my colleague elder Ford he's from queen creek az. And then theres elder Paxman from calgory canada eh! And then theres elder loamanu from taylorsville ut haha and we all "hold it down, cuz ya kno we keeps it 100" haha we are the chills elders in the whole mtc in my opinion we all sing like we are in a barber shop cortet haha but we need new songs to sing so if you have any suggestions of songs from the 40's- the 60's that would be great. I would really love to hear from you all and if you want to send me stuff my mailing address is

  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 French Polynesia? 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 French Polynesia 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
