Weekly Update

Hey Friends and Families,

What is up? How is it going? I am alive and well.

This week we had Zone Conference in Payson, AZ. Some of the main focuses of it were on the importance of finding families to teach and the importance of Temples. We talked a lot about how focusing on the importance of temples when teaching investigators and less actives is much more afffective then just inviting to church. Learned that we really just need to begin with the end in mind. Our missions main focus right now is finding families to teach and we do that through being Diligent and obedient. Another "awesome" thing happened at Zone Conference. We got something called TIWI's installed in our cars. Basically what it does is report our driving habits to the Vehicle Coordinator. It tells us to slow down and tells us if we are being reckless. Our mission alone has spent over a million dollars on vehicle repairs so hopefully these will help lower down the reckless drivings in the mission. 

Also this week Elder Jackson (who was my trainer when I first came out) and I got to go down to the Mesa Temple and see a Recent Covert that we worked with down in Scottsdale receive his Endowments. It was such a special experience. 

On Sunday the Taylor Stake where I am serving was able to have Elder Maynes from the Presidency of the Seventy, Elder and Sister Frost, and our Mission President and his wife President and Sister Sweeney come up for a Special Stake Conference. They talked a lot about how we have a Prophet on the earth again. They mentioned this because there is some apostasy going on in Taylor of people thinking that there is no need for a prophet. So it was really good that they focused on Prophets. It was really good and spirit filled. They also challenged those who don't have a temple recommend to get one and those who haven't been to the temple before to meet with the bishop and set up a plan to go and get worthy to go. It was definitely a good challenge to some people there. 

So all in all a really awesome spirit filled week. Hope all is well with everyone. We get transfer news on Saturday so I may be going or I may be staying. Only time will tell. 

Well Love you all!
Elder Kennedy
