Today Thursday 16th July we received our 1st letters and pictures from Elder Fesolai. I was the happiest Dad on earth. What a blessing to hear of his experiences and love for our Saviour and his Atonement. It was his PDay today so he was busily writing letter to everyone. Here is the one I got from him. Enjoy.
Hey Dad!The MTC is so awesome ay! Our District has 9 missionaries in it! 2 sisters and 7 Elders! So 4 of us are going to Ghana, Accra and the other 5 are going to Arcadia, California! My Companion is a pretty funny guy haha! We have alot of differences but we are able to get along real well as we are continually studying, teaching investigators and Learning more of the Gospel! Ive been unable to email those people because our P-day was today and were not really supposed to email on any other day! As a district one of our goals was to be exactly obedient so we been doing our best to stick to emailing on P-days! But i was able to go to Temple Square last Friday, it was kinda rushed and we were real limited on where we could actually go because of Boyd.K.Packers funeral service that day! But the Salt Lake temple was so amazing! we didnt get to go inside but we walked around it and also around the General Conference Centre and Church Headquarters! My experience in the MTC has been so awesome though, my understanding of my purpose as missionary has just broadened so much more and my understanding and testimony of the Savior's Atonement and Restored Gospel has just grown immensly! I Feel like ive learnt more in this last week than i have in the last 4 years of seminary lol! Its defiantely because of the Spirit! We found out our travel itinery, its back at the residency flat but we leave on the 21st, which would be the 22nd in Australia and Fly from Saltlake to Amsterdam and then from there to Ghana! Theres a decent bunch of us elders going on the same flight too which should be awesome! But we dont have a heap of time, were so busy finding answers for our investigators finding scriptures or messages that will help them come unto Christ, aswell as studying in class which is so great! I was able to give a blessing of the Sick to my companion too whic hwas an awesome experience! He got some kind of flu and it was coming off pretty hard on him! I have been looking for Elder Herschi too, i think i might come across him today because on of the elders in our district met him at a devotional this week. But i hope youre well Dad, and that Mom, Keanu and Neo are too! Know that i pray for you all daily and Love you so much!
