Week 21

  We had the best time Skyping with Elder Kennedy on Christmas.  It was great to hear his voice and see his smile. He loves the people in Colombia and his companion, Elder Olvera .  He shared some pictures of his week.

He looks so thin, He has now lost 50 pounds!!

Elder Kennedy made sure he gave his sister some good advice.

I love to take pictures!!

Elder Kennedy has been without a pillow and blanket for a few weeks.  We were happy to see he has both now.

 Elder Kennedy wanted to thank everyone for praying for him and writing him e-mails.

Week 20

I've been transferred..I'm now serving in Barranquilla the city and I live in a house with another compañerismo.  I"m a lot better now and I really love my campañion, Elder Olvera.  He is from Mexico and has 21 months in the mission. He's teaching me a lot and is really positive and always happy so its helping a lot. I"m still struggling a lot but not with the language.. well yes with the language but i"m pretty functional.  I just cant learn junk about the lessons or remember scriptures or yeah everything that matters on a mission but uh huh.. There's your costeñol for the email hahaha but yeah I'm doing better. We went to a mall today called Buenavista in Barranquilla. its huge!!! I bought McDonald's and it was really good,  which sounds weird but when you eat rice 2 times a day for 4 months it changes a man. anyway here's a pic of me with it. love you guys. 
I got the Christmas packages, Thank you! Also Elder Olvera wanted to say thank you!!

Week 18

Hola de Colombia! I had a good week... we found about 25 new investigators and most of them are firm. Baranoa has a lot of potencial so I hope it goes somewhere. We almost got hit by a motocarro the other day so that was fun but hey I'm here. My companion is getting transferred tomorrow and has been called as a zone leader so I'll be getting a new companion. Idk where he'll go or where I'll be or who my companion is but I'm ready to get a move on. I have to walk kind of slow and cant workout in the morning because of my surgery so I've been kind of bummed lately but uh huh. Attatched are some pictures of me today. I got bored while my companion was writing President so I found something to do. Love you guys.

While chatting with his Dad, Elder Kennedy told him that he had liver and onions the other day and   drank a lot of juice of mora.  I think it is blackberry but I don't know.
No, I felt bad but I couldn't do it ( he was referring to the liver and onions)
