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."

Febrero ya

I cant believe its already February. Time is flying by like never before. Elder Larson and I really lack people to teach. We talk to everyone though. We do so many contacts. It's hard work. We have met all types of different people. We found a couple of new investigators this week though.

A couple weeks ago we saw a man sitting on his porch with a broken foot. We started taking to him and he invited us in. He saved us from the heat and gave us something to drink. We shared with him a little message. After that we tried finding him again, but he was never there. Finally just the other day we were walking down his street again and we stopped and yelled at his door. His wife answered, and invited us in. Ruben was there too. They asked us a bunch of questions and we testified of eternal families, and they are extremely interested. This was an answer to many prayers and much fasting, because we had just fasted to be able find a family to teach. So we are blessed that the Lord helped us find them. 

We also have a menos activa whose husband isn't a member. We are trying to help her come back to church and help her husband Pato too. We had an extremely powerful lesson with them about the Atonement with them, and Pato accepted baptism. But without a date. We would like to work with them more but they wont be back from vacation for another week or so. Also, in the beginning of March we have another family that is coming back from Peru, but that's a few weeks from now. Until then we are going to keep looking, and contacting. We have been trying to work with the ward too. We have organized Noches de hogar every Tuesday in the chapel and we invite all the members to bring a friend, or a reference. But we aren't seeing many results yet. We have also been hard at work with the Bishop trying to write our ward mission plan, para aumentar bautisms and church asistence. But that too is hard because the majority of the church leaders are on vacation. But we are doing work. And we hope to see a lot more progress soon.

Life with 4 Gringo's is good. But there is way too much English that happens here. Haha we need to speak more Spanish with each other when we are home, because that will help everyone learn the language better. 

Sending love from Santiago Chile,
Elder Ian James Kennedy

P.S. Yes, I burned a shirt for hump day.
