On my way to the MTC!

Last night I was set-apart as a Full-Time Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I AM FINALLY PACKED and my room is cleaned!
My dad is so happy about this. 

I enter the Missionary Training Center at 1:00 pm today.  
If anyone would like to send a letter or package my address at the MTC is:
Elder Thomas Daniel Wood
2005 N 900 E Unit  64
Provo UT 84602

I will be at the MTC for approximately 3 weeks before flying to Jamaica.
Just 3 more weeks of winter :-)

Why do we send missionaries?

Provo City Center Temple Open House

February 16, 2016
As I prepare to complete my own Endowment I was able to attend the Provo City Center Temple Open House.  It is an amazing building with incredible work by craftsman and artisans.  What an amazing building that has risen from the ashes.  The spirit there was peaceful and uplifting.

Took a drive to attend an Endowment Session at the Salt Lake Temple today.  The session was unique since it was live and I am glad I live close enough to have this experience.

Personal Endowment

March 2nd, 2016
After getting up at 4:00 am to be at the Rexburg Temple at 6:00 am it seemed like a really long and exhausting day.  The Temple was beautiful and I was overwhelmed with the teachings and the Spirit.  it was an overwhelming experience but I was comforted by the Spirit.  Brother Scott Peterson and Bishop Humphery attended with my mom and dad.  Overall it was a great day and something I will always remember.
