hey kel whats up?! ( for his cousin who just entered the mission field)
officially a missionary now! so cool. its crazy thinking that we both are out serving the lord now. and did you hear about grandma?! crazy huh. our family is gonna be the most blessed family in the world! haha so ya I'm doing great here. i love Peru and I'm sure you are loving south Carolina. i heard your comp is from AZ! that's way cool. you're gonna be an amazing missionary kel. just focus on trying to learn something everyday and developing your ability to tune into the spirit, because the truth is that its not us teaching, its the spirit.
and we need to be the most worthy possible to be able to help others feel that spirit because that is how they will really be converted. we don't have to be able to speak all fancy and stuff to convert people, we just need to invite the spirit. i have had so many experiences here when i can explain or speak exactly how i want in Spanish but the truth is that it doesn't matter because if we just bear our testimony and teach with charity the spirit will testify to those we teach. the truth is that the spirit makes our job easier, but we need to be worthy to have it with us. that means being obedient and always trying our hardest to learn the scriptures. like it says in 2 nephi “feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do”. Kelly the best tip i have for you is to become 100 percent familiar with the book of Mormon because that with the holy ghost is our strongest conversion tool. Kelly i love you so much and I'm so proud of you. work hard and have fun!

what up bro!
so dude i heard youre killing it out there in new york. thats awesome.
i always knew you be an awesome missionary. my mom send me one of your emails and you sound like a future apostle, my competetive juices got pumping again, haha you know how i am. but ya man im loving it here in peru. its really an amazing place. the people here are so humble and its amazing to be able to work with them. its pretty amazing thinking of how im teaching descendants of the lamanites in the land where alma and all those homies taught. but i would have to say im pretty jealous that you get to serve in the area of the restoration. theres got to be some amazing spirit about that place. but ya man just wanted to shoot you a quick note and let you know to keep killing it. you are being a huge example for me and i love you man Love Elder Paolacci

Just wanted to let you know to keep being an awesome missionary and keep loving the people.
