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."

Well, After 6 super fast months in Los Libertadores, I got changed (transferred). I’m gonna miss that ward. I learned so much there. I saw so many miracles there. I am going to miss all the people there. Sebastian, our investigator is going to be baptized next week. I’m so happy for him. Joaquin, an Investigator we found last week read and prayed about the Book of Mormon, got his answer and at his age of 75 with a very serious problem in is knee, he walked to church that very Sunday. After the meeting he went to the Bishop and asked if he could help clean the church on Saturday with the members. And offered to do all the outside cleaning every Saturday so that it be perfectly clean on Sunday. We were so amazed by his willingness to serve and help even though he isn’t even a member yet. He too will be baptized very soon. 

I am now in my new area. Still in Stantiago, in a comuna called OCHAGAVÍA, and a ward named VILLA SUR. This part of Santiago is known for being pretty ghetto. haha I love it. Its really close to and similar to my first sector (which got taken out of the mission and moved to the south mission). But yeah, our sector is super flaite (ghetto) It’s like being in East L.A. haha I love it. My new companion is Elder Stout from south Jordan Utah. He is super cool. We are gonna take out the trash this change. They tell me that the ward has a few problems, and that there hasn’t been a baptism here in 2 years. Elder Stout and I are gonna change that right around. I’m so happy to be here. I really feel like there are people waiting for us here, and that the Lord trusts us a lot to be able to help this sector.

The World cup is so awesome. It’s hard though, because even on the days Chile doesn’t play, almost no one lets us in to teach when there are games going on. But I love the mission.

I love you all! Read The Book Of Mormon! It really will bring so many blessings to your life.
