Yeah, they call me Rabbit this is a turtle race

So this week… I´m trying to think back at all te stuff that happened this week but honestly nothing is coming to my mind. It was also a short week (or at least from the time that I last wrote).

One thing though is that with the missions reinforcement of the rule that we can´t enter a house without another male over 18 years (its always been like that but a lot of people said that with an open door and window and if you can see and hear the street its cool), we haven´t been able to get into as many houses to teach people. Which is GREAT; because we have the opportunity to work with the members more and also look for families to teach.

But while the lessons weren´t flowing like milk and honey we still found opportunities to fulfill our callings in different ways. I think I bore my testimony of the BoM and the savior in more contacts than I had ever done before this weeks, We also found more opportunities to do service (see pictures). 

But all in all it was a pretty good week, I learned a lot which is all that really matters.

Enjoying A “Completo”

 Spiritual thought:

In helaman 5 in verses 6-12 Nefi and Lehi are recieving counsel from their father before they leave to go preach. And helaman says remember about 13 or 14 times (or at least in spanish he does). But what speciffically are we suppossed to rememebr (because this counsel is for all of us). 

1. Remember the commandments that have been given to us and t always fllow them. 

The commandments are the one thing that we have to do in order fully follow Jesus Christ and return to live with our heavenly father. 

2. Helaman asks that Nephi and Lehi remember teir names, and the acts of those who had them before.

Our names are an important reminder to us of who we are and where we came from. We always represent our family in all that we do. With that said we also bear the name of Christ, we are “children of Christ” when we enter into covennants with him, So we also represent that family in all that we do. 

3. Remember the words of the prophets of old (and modern day prophets/ leaders) speccifically about the atonement. 

Now all the words of the prophets are important, but the Atonement is the greatest event of the human race, and yet we can not fully comprehend it. But we need to do all we can to fully understand the roll of a savior in  our live, our absolute nesecity of the atonement, and the sacrifice that both God and his son Jesus Chirst made with the Atonement. 

4. The last thing that we are to rememeber is to build upon the foundation of Christ.

This one seems kind of simple and easy to explain. Because it is, learn all you can about Jesus Christ and do all you can to follow him comepletly. 

Pero eso no mas.
