Elder Kennedy's Mission Scripture

Elder Kennedy's Mission Scripture

Alma 26:12

"Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever."

Made it to Santiago

Elder Kennedy made it to Santiago on Wednesday morning at 7:25 a.m. 
It was a long flight that was slightly delayed. This was his journey on Tuesday-Wednesday (Mar 12-13): 

This is the Provo MTC. Located right in the heart of Provo UT. It is the largest MTC in the world. He spent his first 6 weeks here learning Spanish before entering "The field" (before he left for Chile).

On Tuesday he was driven to the Salt Lake Airpot and commenced his long day of traveling by boarding a 3 hour flight at 1:30 p.m. MST with a just short of a 3 hour layover in Atlanta Georgia's International Airpot.

During his layover we were all able to talk to him. He has grown so much! He mentioned he was sad to be leaving the friends he made at the Provo MTC, but he was very excited to be headed to Chile! He was on a flight with 22 other missionaries. He only knew one of the missionaries which was a sister missionary.

We had the opportunity to hear him recite from memory the 
primera visión (first vision) in Spanish! It sounded so great! Fellow Spanish missionaries from the MTC said his accent was amazing. 

Then he boarded his 9 hour flight to Santiago at 10:40 p.m. EST.  His flight was supposed to leave at 9:55 p.m. EST but was delayed by 45 minutes. 

After just under 9 hours in the air, he landed safely at 7:35 a.m. UTC-3 (which was almost 5:35 a.m. his time/MST) on Wednesday March 13th.
