Weekly Update - Nov 24, 2014

Hey Everybody, 

This week has just been full of Miracles. We were able to get 4 new investigators this week alone. To start off we finally got into a part members families home that I have been trying to work with since I first got up here. We were able to start actually teaching there daughter which she just turned nine in september I believe. They finally came to church sunday as well which is the second time they have been since I have come here. The Lessons are going super well for the daughter and she has a baptismal date for December 13th

We also started teaching a couple whose name is Kelly and Micah. She says she use to be a member, but now she is baptized in the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Her boyfriend Micah is going to be baptized in the next couple weeks in the seventh day adventist church. We were able to start teaching the first discussion with them, but then through them asking questions we kind of got off topic. We talked to her about why she left the LDS faith. She said that she never really had a testimony of the church, but also said that she wants the LDS faith to be true because it is the one church that makes the most sense. So we do have some potential to work with for this family. Hopefully we can meet again this upcoming week with them. 

Another family that we just started teaching with seems super prepared. The other Elders tracted into them when they were contacting a spanish referral. There names are Chris and Shannon Morales. We were able to teach them the first lesson and we invited them to make the temple a goal. We incorporated a baptismal invite by explaining that in order to go to the temple one of the steps is that you have to be baptized by one holding the proper authority from God. He said that before the other Elders came Chris had been talking to his wife about how he needed to be baptized. He took us coming as a sign from God. Amazing miracle there. 

We also met with Nancy Ward who has a baptismal date for January 17th, 2015. We were able to teach the Law of Chasity to her and it seemed to go pretty well. Nancy also fed us dinner on Saturday and gave all the Elders a letter and a present. So sweet of her. 

We also met with Bailee who is our first YSA baptism in a while. She has finally stopped smoking and drinking coffee. She is getting baptized on December 6th and is progressing so well. She has a lot of fellow shippers.

Chris Adams just got back from Payson a couple weeks ago and we were able to take him to the family history center and start to do his family history. We were able to find his Grandfather and pulled up his Grandfathers obituary. Chris just started bawling. The spirit was so strong there. I told him that now we need to take his grandfathers name to the temple and do the work for him. Such an awesome experience.  

I feel like things are going super well in our areas and things are starting to pick up again! So blessed to be were I am at this time.

Love you all, 
Elder Kennedy
