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."

From Chile with love

We are working hard here in Los Libertadores. We have the list of the Endowed members. We looking for them, and thinking of assignments to give them. We had success with one: Cristobol Albornoz. He returned from his mission a little over a year ago and went inactive about two months after coming home. We found him, started bringing him to church and we got the bishopric to help us give him an assignment. He is now the Second Consejero in Young Men. We have also been inviting him to go out and do visits with us. 

We are looking for more. Especially those who have received their endowment because these are people that have a lot of knowledge of the gospel and have made very sacred covenants with God. We have also been able to motivate the leaders of the ward to have ward council more than once a month. We now have it once a week. This is very good because we now have more verification and the work progresses a lot faster. It's crazy how much work there is to do down here. It's kind of of nice though, because it keeps us busy. I know that this ward has a lot of pontential for growth. I think that this pilot plan is exactly what Los Libertadores needs to grow. This week we had 57 people that attended church. We are already at ten more  people than when I got here. I believe that with this pilot plan we will easily be able to raise the attendance by 20% and more even. This ward about to see a lot of change. 

Funny/Crazy story of the week. Walking down the street in our sector a couple of days ago we saw a guy get hit by a car. The crazy part is he didn't get hurt. He walked across the street when he shouldn't have and a car just took him out. But this guy rolled over the hood of the car and landed on his feet, and kept walking on. The car stopped, and every asked him if was ok he said "Yea, I'm fine." and just kept walking his course. What a boss! The things you see here are pretty crazy sometimes. 

Anyway I love you all.

(The pictures of the parade-ish thing is of Cuasimodo ... it's the day after Easter, when all the people go out with the Catholic Priests to bless the sick and give them mass and stuff. The people of the town ride out with them on horses and bikes and stuff. It is tradition to do this, to ensure that the Priests do not rob the houses they go to, because they used to do that like a hundred years ago.)

 Maté with Elder Larson and mini ties... we wore sweaters that day so we tied mini ties.
