Week 64
Shout out to:
Gabe- Is the coolest, and was considered to be an amazing Le Fou in "Beauty and the Beast Jr." 
Lanie Beard- Was said to do a very fantastic job in SC Idol!
This week has been fantastic! We've found some more people to teach and have been able to continue helping those whom we have already started teaching. 
Last week we went hiking as a district! It was a lot of fun! We started a fire and roasted how dogs, made s'mores, it was fantastic! It was REALLY cold, but awesome!
Something that I've thought a lot about is remembering. Remembering is a theme of the Book of Mormon, and it is SO important. Heavenly Father often blesses us with experiences that could make a big impact on us, but if we forget to remember that experience is lost. A Book of Mormon prophet wrote

Heleman 5:12
 12 And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall.

If we can remember where true happiness actually lies, would we ever seek wrong things? No.

Moroni 10:3
3 Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things, if it be wisdom in God that ye should read them, that ye would remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men, from the creation of Adam even down until the time that ye shall receive these things, and ponder it in your hearts.

Remember God's mercy since the world was created. Remember experiences you've had. Remember that His mercy is there for you now and always will be there for you. 

Honoring God
