One of Those Good But Hard Weeks

Hola! This week was really good. I learned a lot about what it means to really truly rely in and trust in the Lord.

We spent the majority of this week trying to help the people that we are currently teaching to be able to make it to church. The family that we are teaching that has the really obstinate dad is still progressing. The daughter really wants to get baptized and can, as soon as she has permission from her dad. The parents have to be in agreement before a child can get baptized, and she is 12 years old. And a powerhouse! She has a lot of potential. This whole family, to tell the truth. We did a fast this week for the heart of the dad to be softened.

And this week culminated in having five investigators come to church. And the Lord brought every one of them through his members of this Ward! We sat there in happy shock watching as one of the members brought a family of their friends for the first time! We worked really hard this week, and the Lord came through.

This change has been my hardest so far in the misión. But this change has also been then one where I have grown the most.

Gotta run for know, but know that you are all in my prayers and thoughts. And in those prayers and thoughts I am hoping that all of you are excited as I am for the General Conference!!! AAAAH! Can hardly wait for this Saturday and Sunday.

Love you all!
Elder Kennington
