´No hay que comer`

Hello hello everyone!
JORGE AND VICTORIA GOT BAPTIZED!!!!! Woooohoooooo :) A few day before their baptism we were asking them the baptism questions to prepare them and I said okay, Jorge, la Palabra de Sabiduria (word of wisdom) and he responded.. uhh no hay que comer (you can't eat)!! He was so proud of his response.. I was like, we can't eat?? Shoot I need to do a lot of repenting! I have been laughing at it since! But the baptism went well, one of the ZL's is going home this change so we had him baptize the kiddos for a last hurrah. The baptism started an hour late (Guatemala standard time) and their mom and younger siblings came. When Victoria came out of the water she started bawling. We were like... did she get water up her nose...? No water, she was really upset that her dad didn't come and support her.. poor gal. They bore their testimonies after and Jorge said he's never going to miss a sunday of church! So changes are here!!!!! YEAH :) I am going to a place called Los Campos, it's in Coban and my companion is going to be Hermana Escobar, I don't know her, but she's from Panama and I heard she's really nice and super quiet and a great missionary! So I think it'll be good :) I'm excited to get to know Coban even though it's cold and rains a lot haha! I didn't realize how much stuff I had... packing is a bear! Well, have a great week :) I sure love you all and I'm so thankful for all of your support!
Love, Hermana Brems

  1. Two baptisms, that is wonderful. We are so proud of you. We are going to find a map to see where Coban is. You are really thin Jenna. You need some Pink Lady cut up by your grandma. You are an absolutely young woman. Love you. Be well@

  2. 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 Guatemala? 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 Guatemala 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
