March 29, 2016

Wah gwan mi general,

Happy (late) Easter. Yesterday was Easter Monday (whatever that is... Probably just an excuse to have a day off work). I was sitting in church on Sunday talking to this member. I asked her if she felt like it was Easter. She told me yes and asked me if I felt like it was Easter. I told her not really, because it just felt like any other day. She asked me what Easter at home feels like. Easter egg hunts, candy, Easter basket, family, dinner.... She pulled out a little chocolate and gave it to me. She said, "I can't give you everything else, but here is an Easter Sweet."

Pweety Picture

Anna-kay came and visited me on Sunday. She brought me a nice big piece of home made cake. Have I ever told you how much I love Anna-kay?? And I love her for so much more than her home-made cake. She is genuinely one of my best fiends in Jamaica. She said she might come visit me one more time before I leave (I only have 3 more Sundays :O) I told her if I didn't see her in the next few weeks, I would text her when I get home. Weird, but awesome.

Marcel came to Boulevard Ward on Sunday as well. He is another one of my best friends here. May Pen just produces best friends. Anyways, he just got his call to the Belgium Netherlands Mission. He is going to the Provo MTC so I will be able to send him things before he leaves!!

On Saturday we watched the General Woman's meeting. It was really nice. I am planning to study King Benjamin's sermon in Mosiah. Apparently we need to serve more!! I am looking forward to General Conference on Saturday and Sunday.

The work in this area is.... I guess you could say, moving forward. It could be better, but Alma says that we should be content with the things which the Lord hath allotted unto us. Alma 29. And I am grateful. I love Jamaica and I am grateful for the time I have to be here. And trust me, mango season is coming on and I am determined to eat as many as I possibly can before I leave.

I finished the Book of Mormon again this past week. I read from one of the little blue copies and as I read I marked whenever it talked about a step from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I wrote my testimony in the front and gave it away. I wanted to read it one more time before my mission finishes, but I'm not sure I'll make it.

Well, that's all!
I love you all sooo much
Bless up yuhself.

  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 trough 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’s impossible to achieve in other various territories for several reasons, 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 Jamaica? 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 Jamaica 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 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
