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."

World Cup

Hey! So my new Mission President comes in on the 24th of June. Yeah, so the World Cup is going to start up this week. Pretty crazy. But 50% of the people are excited and the other 50% don’t even care because of all the politics that went into it.

So, this past week was cool. But we didn’t have much success/time to work in our area. I went to Recife three times (Thursday-Saturday). Thursday was a Zone Conference with President Lanius and the other two days I was in a division with Elder Hatch who has a gnarly toe infection. The foot doctor is in Recife. The good news is that we still had two investigators come to church. Leninha and Ángela. One needs to be married first in order to be baptized. So we are working on that. Angela is gaining a testimony still. Wednesday we will go to the Temple as a Zone and the next day is the first game of the world cup! They are recommending that missionaries not be out working during the games or after because there will be craziness in the streets like fireworks being thrown around. The streets here are all decorated and full of Brasil banners and colors. It’s super awesome!!!! Sao Joao is around the corner.

The coolest thing that happened this week was at the conference with the President. I feel like I know my Pres. better and have more faith and trust in him. It’s sad he will be leaving soon. He opened the last two hours of Zone Conference up for questions in relation to doctrine or his personal life and it was super epic!
I love you all so much. These next five months are going to go by too fast. Next week I’ll try and write more ;)
