Elder Duffy arrived safely in Raleigh a little over a week ago and seems to be doing great! Today was his P-Day so he was able to send out his first email on the field. His new address is at the end of his email.

(From a letter Dallin wrote to my parents) "I am writing this during day 2 lunch. Everything is going cool but I'm super tired. My first companion is Elder Stevenson. He is an all-american wrestler. The rest of my district is super cool and we are all pretty similar. Out of time. P-Day is on Monday." -Elder Duffy
"Whats up guys how you've been? MTC is super hard sometimes we're in class for like 12 hours straight with breaks only for lunch/dinner. Our district is super cool though and its probably the only reason i haven't freaked out yet. Today we had temple time in the morning and we did like 5 Initiatories. Then we came back and chilled and had lunch then went and played some ball. Anyways, Im learning a little bit and having alot of fun.The devotionals and movies we can watch are the best part. Some talk By President Uchdorf got me pumped to serve and be a good missionary. Oh my companion has a twin here - it's funny lol Love you miss you." - Elder Duffy

I will post Dallin's MTC address once again just in case you missed it in the last post. If you have the time, I am sure Dallin would appreciate some mail. I am going to start writing my first letter after I finish this blog! I can't wait to write a missionary!
Elder Duffy's MTC Address
Elder Dallin Jackson Kevin Duffy
2005 N 900 E Unit 99
Provo UT 84602
I came across a really cool website called:dearelder.com. It is a fast, free way to write a letter to Dallin in the MTC. You type your letter in the box and push submit. Then, at the MTC, they print your letter and hand deliver it to him (if you write it before noon they will hand deliver it to him that very same day Monday-Friday!) I just tried it and I got a conformation letter saying that it worked. I love this because I know he will get it today and also its free postage which is also a plus. Here is the link for the website: http://www.dearelder.com/index/inc_name/mission_selection
Make sure to put Provo MTC as his mission. It will then ask you his title which is elder and then his first and last name. Then it will ask his Unit number which is 99 and then it will ask for his mission/mission code which is Raleigh, North Carolina. Finally it will ask for his estimated MTC departure date which I believe is: September 22nd.
Oh, and one more thing! I just thought I should include a link with more information about what the MTC is just in case you are interested in learning more: https://www.mtc.byu.edu/themtc.htm
Thanks for reading!
