On Wed: I enter the MTC in the afternoon and was quickly taken through the process of getting all of the stuff I need. We then had a welcome fireside where all the missionaries that day all met together and talked to the MTC presidency. It was a very spiritual meeting and it was so cool to sing with all of the missionaries in one room. We then had our first teaching experience where we all went into different rooms where there were investigators. There were about 30 missionaries in the room teaching the investigator. This experience was great. It was so awesome seeing the investigators and seeing the spiritual progress we would make with them in only 45ish minutes. The spirit was so strong and I can't wait to be able to do it everyday of my life in the mission field.
On Thursday: This was the longest day of my life. It was also very spiritual. We basically had class all day and had different workshops. All of our days are planned our for us so 16 hours of our day is planned out for us and the only 8 we are sleeping. We also had opportunities to make up an investigator and then other missionaries taught us. The spirit is always so strong during all of these experiences. I love it here. The spirit is so strong everywhere you go. It is a really great feeling. Everyone who is 19 years old and eligible need to go on a mission. The spirit is so strong as a missionary. I have never felt the spirit stronger
Friday and Saturday were basically the same as Thursday
Sunday: we had church with our branch and other meetings all through the day. If you think 3 hours of church is bad imagine 15 hours of church stuff in one day. It was all really good and spiritual.
Monday: Today we went to the Temple and went through an endowment session in the Provo temple. It was a good experience and I cant wait to go again next week.
I am just about out of time. I do have a testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I know that I have been called of god to serve a mission and that I am going to Australia for a reason. My time is about up so I love and miss all of you and I hope you all have a great week.
Love,Elder Kyler Powelson
