Letter to Dad


I love you!  You are the best Dad ever.  I miss you tons.  This has definitely been the hardest thing that I have done.  I have already wanted to go home like 8 times.  It is so hard.  Especially when everyone speaks Tagalog to you.  But we are all getting better.  Sorry Dad, but I'm definitely not coming home soon.  It has been so much fun.  We go to the gym every day.  I either run or play volleyball.  It is super fun.  A lot of the Elders are pretty good.  And some of the girls too.  It is so much fun.  I love it.  I have been doing so good at eating too.  There has not been one day where I skipped a meal.  I even ate a navajo taco that had onions and chilies and tomatoes.  And, I ate it all.  I have been eating things that I would never eat before.  You would be so proud.  Haha!  The Spirit here is amazing.  It has been so much fun.  Well Dad --  I love you and miss you !  I am so lucky to have you in my life!  Mahal kita (I love you !)


A note from Mom:

For all of you who know Kenna - you are chuckling at the vision of seeing her eating onions and tomatoes.  We all know what's happening here …..  it's the power of the call.  It brings me back to not  more than two days before she left.  She had a taco that had an "accidental" onion in it.  One onion mind you.  She threw the whole thing out!  FUNNY!  Oh - how things change.  We teased her that the real reason behind her call to the Philippines was so that she could get over her "food issues".  Well - a miracle is at work here friends.  : )
