First Week in Gyumri, by Russian Military Base

This week has been a very fun time! I’m getting used to the Gyum's.  The only thing that sucks is travel time.  We have to travel everywhere and it takes forever.  Other than that I love it.  The people here are way different though! They actually joke around but are also way more Russian in their pride about everything.  We have some good work so far and we are doing our best.  Its super stressful up here but its going to be worth it.  There isn’t a ton of news from up here. Oh, we don’t have food.  hahahah but we have been eating a lot of ramen.  We are going to learn how to make chili so that is exciting, it is from the land of my forefathers... funny thing is its not from Mexico! Anyway, we will be living on that for a while.  I want to give a special shout out to Parker Freeman who is having his farewell talk soon, he's going to slay it! So listen ahhah.  Just remember that God loves you! We are lucky enough to live in His promised land.  Trust in Him!!! Independence is awesome! We decided to re-draw the American flag with Utah as apart of the "14" colonies

Utah part of original colonies... hmm

  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 Armenia? 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 Armenia 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
