Elder Kennedy's Mission Scripture

Elder Kennedy's Mission Scripture:

Omni 1: 26

"And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved."

Letter #1- First week at MTC

Hey Everyone,

The MTC is awesome. I’m learning so much everyday. I am so excited to be here. The first couple days were pretty rough, but I’m getting used to the work schedule. My P-days are Tuesday’s (at least in the Provo MTC) we'll see if I get my visa in time. I hope so, but being here isn’t so bad. I don’t think my brain has ever hurt so much. Sunday’s are cool because we go to one of the buildings and meet with our branch and take the sacrament.
Portuguese is coming along great. It’s an awesome language. Every day is insane because of the amount of learning and information that gets thrown at me. I've never gone to bed so mentally tired but Im taking in a lot of great stuff. My companion and I have already taught 8 lessons to an (investigator) in Portuguese. I have a great companion. His name is Elder Fuhriman and we get along really well and really help each other out with our studies. On Thanksgiving one of the 12 apostles is coming to speak to us. And tonight one of the seventy are speaking to us (hope it’s Elder Waddell)! Well happy holidays. I love you all so much and I can’t tell you how awesome the spirit is here! There is so much happiness and enthusiasm all around. I am so excited to serve the Lord these next 2 years and deepen my understanding of the gospel.
Renee and Joe- Thanks for the letters, photo album and cupcakes!!! My companion and residence missionaries love you guys now. Don’t worry I had 2 for myself. I got the photo album on Friday. A bunch of missionaries liked seeing my long hair haha.
Mom- I don’t have any real needs, but stationary is nice and some Mo-Tab. I love you so much and you were right about the spirit here, it is so strong. I feel really good about serving the Lord these next two years.
I love you all so much and hope all is well. I’ll write you soon.

Love, Elder Kennedy

P.S. I’ll write another letter to answer your other questions. I don’t’ need anything that I know of but getting a package is a great feeling. I’m taking lots of pics, don’t worry. Love you!
