First off I need you to ponder this picture.
Look at it. Isn't it wonderful?
This is an Elder Hough in his Natural Habitat. It is said that if you moo 3 times to the east, a wild Elder Hough will suddenly appear and glare with disappointment in a carebear outfit. This is my companion for the last few weeks and He's a cool guy. Very quiet and controlled guy. I respect him a lot and to be honest he's helped me be more conscious and aware of what I say.
A lot of times I forget the power that we hold as missionaries, but every day we like it or not, we are creating a legacy. A PERSONAL legacy of who you are, a MISSION legacy of why we're out of here, and more importantly a legacy of the two names we hold to our chest every single day.
As a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we always hold two names to our chest everywhere we go. On mine, it is Elder Villanueva and more importantly, the other name is Jesus Christ. As we walk as we teach as we are who Heavenly Father wants us to be, we are creating a legacy for our FAMILY and more importantly, we are representing JESUS CHRIST. We are proud of the fact that we are here and we work because we wanna make em proud and we want to create a legacy that will honor those we serve. I'm just lucky because my companion knows that way more than I do and he makes sure that I remember in times that I don't.
Strange... I know... But I think sometimes we all need a good Carebear to teach us that
