My week:

Monday- P-day busy as always preparing for the week, and at night on a train going to Erdenet.

Tuesday- In Erdenet on a split with the Erdenet elders (Yes I got to go to Erdenet again! I got like a heroes welcome! Everyone saw me and was super happy! It was awesome!!! (and this was safe and legal)

Wednesday- Still in Erdenet teaching them the area and helping them with their companionship and missionary work. I helped one missionary get three referrals (new investigators information).

Thursday- Got home in the morning, taught district meeting in the afternoon, met with a family, then got on a train to the next place.

Friday- In a place called Selenge. Its a super small little town. We went there and just went on a split with them to find out about their area and companionship. How we can help, etc. It was really successful . I helped one missionary find two new investigators. At night we got on the train again.

Saturday- Got into another small countryside town, called Zuunkharaa. Even smaller than yesterdays town. We went on a split with them too and worked with them on what they need to do to improve and help the area/work grow. Also very successful.

Sunday- Were supposed to go home but missed the 2am train back so had to stay longer and went to church in Zuunkharaa. We got back and immediatly had an appointment so with our luggage in hand we met with him, then right after (still with our stuff) visited another family and finally got to go home! First time I got to sleep in a real bed this week!! Busy busy busy!! Awesome!

Next week I will email a really inspiring storyt

  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 Mongolia? 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 Mongolia 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
