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."

Good Week

Family!

Well, another fantastic week has passed. Elder Harries and I are taking out the trash, contacting everyone. It's gotten to the point where we walk down the streets and recognize 90% of the people and know 75% by name. But we are constantly finding new people to teach. 

Yesterday was the Birthday of Elder Harries. Omar and Coni did a little surprise party in their house and invited a few people form the ward. It was awesome. Omar and Coni are so awesome. They have so much faith. Lately they have been passing through a lot of trials, (typical 'after baptism' Satan stuff). But these trials are not small. However they recognize that with these trials it's even more important to obey the commandments. After Sacrament meeting yesterday Elder Harries and I saw Omar with a tithing slip sticking out of his pocket. Just that little sight gave us so much joy. Also they had and interview with the Bishop, and Omar is going to be called as the first consejero in the Young Men. We are so proud of them. They are just so humble. Despite of the fact that the electricity in their house got cut, after seeing my worn out shoes, Omar went into his closet and gave me his pair of dress shoes. I tried to assure him that I would be ok with my shoes because my mission is coming to an end, but he insisted. I was so humbled by the charity that he has.

I love the mission so much, I cannot express how much I love the people here. I wish I could stay here forever.
