I don´t have a lot of time to post this week. After writing the family and president I got a little distracted on You know you are a missionary when you could spend days on the site and don´t want it to end. Anyway this week I have been rereading my journal and I wrote a lot about a college professor of mine and how he talked about mentoring. This has been a lesson that has been with me ever since and how we need to look up to good examples learn from there accomplishments and failures. This somestimes doesn´t have to be a big person in leadership such as the Apostles and Prophets. That is whose biagrophies wow I am sure I botched that word but spell check is in spanish so you all get to deal with my poor english. HAHA. Anywa I have been reading them and it has been intresting. We also have great leaders such as mission presidents, bishops, but even more we have great parents, brothers and sisters even if they are younger, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins who write us great emails when we need them.  We also have great friends as well that will always be special in our lives. In the mission we also have zone leaders, district leaders, companions, and our trainers, and of course we even end up learning from members and the people that we are teaching.
In the end our best mentor can and always will be Christ in 3 Nephi 27:27 it talks about how we need to become like him.  (I am pretty sure that is the reference if not correct me in the comments) Anyway we need to develop chirstlike attributes and also look at those in others this will help us in the end find happiness and peace in this life and the life after like it says in the introduction of the Book of Mormon.

Well that is really it for this week and do to the lack of time but hope you all have a good week.

  1. Yes 3 Nephi 27 states "...Therefore, what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am."

  2. Having mentors in life is very helpful. I would say critical. Jesus is our ultimate mentor and we should anchor ourselves to him. Ether 4:4 "Wherefor, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God."

    Besides Jesus there are other key mentors in life... like you mentioned above. Financial mentors, business mentors, personal mentors. It is good to have people you can check in with and get honest feedback. People who you know love you and will tell you what you need to know, if if it is hard. Strive to always have good mentors in your life, people you trust and can turn to because the road of life is full of twist and turns and bumps. It is good to learn from those who have travel the road before.
