Elder Kennedy's Mission Scripture

Elder Kennedy's Mission Scripture:

Omni 1: 26

"And now, my beloved brethren, I would that ye should come unto Christ, who is the Holy One of Israel, and partake of his salvation, and the power of his redemption. Yea, come unto him, and offer your whole souls as an offering unto him, and continue in fasting and praying, and endure to the end; and as the Lord liveth ye will be saved."

Slow week

Hey! This week was pretty cool but slow. My companion is sick so that stinks. I’m trying not to get sick from him. Anyway Renee and Joe, I’m stoked everything is going good with you except for Joe being sick too. Thanks for putting some sunscreen in the package. It’s actually really hot here. Always! The summer and winter temp doesn’t really change all that much. As far as investigators go we have a few, but a couple have shown more disinterest. This week we are going to make some bomb contacts, get some addresses, and teach the gospel to ‘em! The members are super nice but I don’t know what it is about Ponte. The members don’t ever give out references. My companion says here they give out the least references out of all the areas he has been in. Whatever! I’ve just got to work harder and reel in who we find. Mom, Aunt J, Renee and Joe- that’s sweet you all went to Sea World! I’m jealous.

It rained a bunch again and we take these VW bus-taxi’s to areas in the city sometimes for divisions and whatnot and the road was so flooded the tires were completely underwater. We saw a BU bus like the normal huge city bus size stuck and halfway submerged. Walking the streets in the rain is just a mess, impossible to stay dry especially my feet. Hahaa another bus story this week is, we were in another area (muribeca) to give an interview for baptism for the elders there in our district and on the way home we took a bus that passes by our house so its convenient. The ride home from muribeca to ponte is like an hour and a half. Well, we reach pontezinha and the bus breaks down so we had to walk like 30 minutes more in the rain. Right now everything is sunny, hot and dry. 
Thanks again for the package!

Com amor,
Elder Kennedy
