To everyone that loves me, 
Sunday (6/29) was my birthday! I’m 20 now. I feel different than I did before, but not because of my birthday. It’s been great to be in a position where I really don’t get to think of myself as much as I do everyone else. I love you guys so much! I want to be able to hear from you! I can assure you that there’s a lot of you that I haven’t forgotten about, and unfortunately some that I have. My memory is starting to get really bad but I guess that’s what happens when you’re moving place to place and talking with a ton of different people everyday in Seattle. So talk to me! Tell me about your life! I want to hear from you! We’re almost one year down and it’s the scariest thought. I love what I’m doing and never want to stop. But yeah, my information is somewhere on the blog. Snail mail or email is all good. Hope to hear from some of you soon!
Love you, 
Elder Albrecht

"HELLO TUMBLR FOLLOWERS HOW ARE YOU DOING I AM GOOD, I AM NOT DEAD. 
Anyways, Washington is super swaggy. Like, it’s hoodie weather all the time and the weather is super comfortable but I can’t wear hoodies and I wear a white shirt and tie everyday. 
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, I’m right outside of Puyallup if any of you know where that is. I’m teaching a lot of people and meeting a lot. I work all day every day trying to help people be happy. 
I wish I could talk to all of you through here but hey, those of you that write me, email me, you’re super awesome and I love you guys. I write everyone back. Several of you can testify to that. 
I forget what my address is but my sister who is going to post this can find it and I love her so much so she’ll put that here and my email is andrew.albrecht@myldsmail.net send me all of your love and your questions and stuff. I want to talk with you guys, I want to love you. Um. But a little update, I’m learning to speak like, several different languages where I’m at and I’m helping a lot of people quit smoking and drinking and talking people out of ending their lives and just a lot of really deep stuff. I’m here to help people. The work is hard and busy, but so worth it. Who knew that so many people would spill their entire life story to a 19 year old guy? But heavenly father loves each of us so much. Miracles do happen, I see them every day. Stay swaggy”

So Elder Albrecht has been doing marvelous at the MTC!

     He is on the left making the scowl, haha. Anyway’s Elder Albrecht has REALLY loved and appreciated all the letters and support! So keep them coming. He requested for pictures of kittens as well as stickers if possible be sent to him.

Just some things Andrew said about the MTC

Hey, it’s P-day and I finally have access to email. Which is pretty cool but also pretty lame that I can only email people once a week, but I am totally able to write letters n stuff all the time. UM. 

But no, it’s not true. I’ve been doing a lot of stuff here. But eating does play a big part. There’s a lot of food here. I’ve been eating entirely too much and I feel terrible about it. I think I’m actually really backed up. 
Um. There’s this neat website called dearelder.com where you can send letters to the MTC for free and they’ll print them out and give them to us that day. 
Is it bad that I don’t like my companion? I mean, I love the kid but he has a lot of issues. I think there’s a learning disability in there somewhere. He’s tall and skinny and stuck in the 80s and he’s really really nerdy awkward with the raspy lisp nerd voice. I dunno man. 
I wanted to include pictures but apparently it doesn’t like that. 
So I leave on Tuesday morning for Washington. 
Feel free to make a tumblr post thanking everyone for the letters and emails so far and to keep em coming. I really appreciate them and I’m doing well here. Lot’s of really spiritual experiences and lots of happy tears. 
The one thing I will say is that all of my months of mission prep have been blown out of the water within five days of me being at the MTC. 
That is all,
Love you. 
Have fun.
Elder Albrecht

Oh hey, I got it to work, here’s a picture of me and my district at the Provo temple on Sunday.

Feel free to include those in a post somewhere. 
Also, if you could mention my email and address and that I’m going to Washington on the third on Facebook and Tumblr and yeah.
Thankkkkkkkkkkkkk yoooooooooou.”

God be with you til we meet again.

It’s been a fun few years Tumblr. 

I’m glad I got coaxed into making an account years ago. 

I’m glad I started to get followers somehow.

I’m glad that I got to talk with so many of you and had great experiences and developed friendships that I’m sure will last. 

I’m glad I was able to help some of you out with whatever you needed help with and for the help and support I’ve been able to receive from you guys.

So many of you are so wonderful, I can feel it and I know it. 

Don’t forget who you are.

Don’t put up with BS. 

Be strong, we have hard days so we can learn and grow. 

Everything will work out for the best, I can promise you that. 

I wont forget about you, I know each of you, and I will miss you all so very much. 

Just remember to be a good person, and be kind and charitable to everyone that you can, be the change you want to see in the world. 

Be confident. 

Show off your talents. 

You’re each special and unique. 

I can’t wait to be back and hear about each of your lives. 

I’m so proud of you guys, and I’m glad you’ve stuck it out with me. 

Make good decisions, don’t lose yourself. 

If you ever want to talk to me my address has been posted, I will respond and help however I can, I care. 

So this is it Tumblr. I’ll see you in 2015.

But like…they love you. It’s hard to say goodbye to people who have touched you. Plus, you’ll have to get used to it. I cry when my missionaries leave.

The amount of tears that have been caused by me in the past few days is pretty unsettling.

Knocked for you. Even so, just give really good hugs before you go. Say I love you a million times over. Apologize if you have to And let the rest go.

I’ve been doing my best at doing that this whole month. But there’s never enough time in the world.
