Elder Kenison the Cook

Elder Kenison has had frequent "divisions" with one of his zone leaders, Elder Simmons. They seemed to "hit it off" and have become good friends. The photo shows them cooking pancakes together for a zone activity a while back.

This week, we got an email from Elder Simmons' mother, whom Bonnie made contact with through a "missionary moms" email list.
I just wanted to tell you that your son is an angel! He got brownies for my sons birthday and had the other Zone Leaders sing Happy Birthday to him. that made me happy because he hadn't received our cards or package yet. He tried not to sound to disappointed but I could tell that the brownies helped. Thanks for having such a thoughtful son!
We were very grateful for that little insight, and the compliment about our son. Matt started out making chocolate chip cookies with his dad when he was quite young, and has expanded his skills gradually. We understand he's becoming quite well-known in Chile for his brownies made from scratch!
