Our ward is a designated American ward. All of the north americans who work for the embassy and such are in our ward. and ALL of the Argentines here want to speak with us in English. Its a big challenge for me because at this point I'm mostly thinking in Spanish and when I teach it´s in Spanish. Even writing this is borderline brutal. So we´re starting up an English class this Saturday. pretty excited, but have no clue how to teach English. Well I love you all and I pray you are doing well. Do your visiting and home teaching. Without the members, there is no point to missionary work. The members are key in continuing what the missionaries start.

6 And now behold, I say unto you, my brethren, you that belong to this church, have you sufficiently retained in aremembrance the captivity of your fathers? Yea, and have you sufficiently retained in remembrance his mercy and long-suffering towards them? And moreover, have ye sufficiently retained in remembrance that he has bdelivered their souls from hell?
7 Behold, he changed their hearts; yea, he awakened them out of a deep sleep, and they awoke unto God. Behold, they were in the midst of darkness; nevertheless, their souls were illuminated by the light of the everlasting word; yea, they were encircled about by the abands of death, and the bchains of hell, and an everlasting destruction did await them.
9 And again I ask, were the bands of death broken, and the achains of hell which encircled them about, were they loosed? I say unto you, Yea, they were loosed, and their souls did expand, and they did bsing redeeming love. And I say unto you that they are saved.
So, each of us receive blessing from our Heavenly Father, and we are so quick to forget. I know that I, even as a missionary, forget the blessings of God. We pray to find families to teach, and then we find families. I get so excited because of the blessing we received that I forget to continue seeking the Lord's guidance. It is through the Holy spirit that our Father is able to guide us to those who are prepared to receive the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I remember what God does for me, and I always remember the sacrifice that Christ made for me. But the question is, do I remember it ¨sufficiently¨? Am I sharing what I know? Am I remembering to express thanks in my prayers? Am I showing that thanks in my actions? Do I continue to live as Christ would have me live? Just some things to think about. I love you all. Have a great week, and plan a family home evening, invite your friends who haven´t received the Gospel, and then invite the missionaries to come too.
