Week 16

Querido familia mio y amigos,
Espero que ustedes son muy bien y son felices. Mi semana fue muy aburrido porque no puedo trabajar!! Pero yo tuve la oportunidad a estudiar mucho y hablar con presidente y otros miembros en la casa. Okay all jokes aside... (Dont freak out mother I'm writing in English) I had a long week. I just sat in the house and studied, I'm about to go insane..I still have until Thursday! Talking energizes me, so its rough. But my email this week. is about the natural man. We read in the scriptures that the natural man is an enemy to God and that we should be the opposite of the natural man, the spiritual man. But what does that mean? In the Spanish scriptures there's something called the GEE which is pretty much a topical guide.  It says that the natural man is someone who follows HIS passions, HIS wants,  pretty much what HE wants and ignores what the LORD wants. This is very important because in reality, its really hard to not be ¨the natural man. With all that is in the world and the changing standards. But as we trust in God and come unto him with HUMILITY , he will help us overcome these natural man tendencies. We read in Alma that satan has control of the natural man, and that the natural man is an enemy to God. So what its really saying is that when were the natural man, were an enemy to God. My invitation this week is to humble yourselves before God. Look over your life and wants, desires, whatever it may be and look for things to improve and change to be closer to God. Love you guys. Have a good week!

Week 15

This week on Saturday November 12, 2016 Elder Kennedy had to have his appendix removed.  Elder Kennedy has remained fine and in good spirits throughout his hospitalization.  Every time we received a picture  it did our hearts good to see that he was getting well taken care of,  both spiritually and physically.  These pictures have  strengthened our faith to know he was in such good hands when we were not able to be there.  We had to step aside and trust so that the Lord could come in and create miracles for Elder Kennedy and our testimonies.  We are grateful for all of the Nurses, Doctors, Mission President and his Beautiful Wife, Elder Santiago,  and Branch President Florez.  Keep Elder Kennedy in your prayers as he continues to recover.
