So funny story... Christmas eve we had dinner with a family. And we ate a lot of meat!! lamb, cow, pig, sausage, chicken, etc.. it was awesome.. but after the dinner we were walking home and I saw a drunk guy (like so drunk that he was moving more sidewase than straight) starting to cross the street.. then I saw a small truck coming toward him.. I jokingly said to my companion ``I hope he doesn't get hit," but I thought that the truck would slow down for the guy, but it didnt.. luckily it swurved just in time and nicked the guy with the side mirror.. the drunk guy fell and we went out go help him.. I thought that he had died or something but he was fine... we tried to help him get up but he told us ``leave me alone, I am trying to sleep``. The lady that hit him called the police and they got it taken care of. Then the next morning we opened our presents and ate our candy ;).. then we had lunch with other members and we had more meat.. it was sooo good. Then all four of us (me, Elder Holt, Elder Winward, and Elder Linford) went to another members house and skyped our familes. We had a rule that we couldnt go out side of our house unless we had a set appointment. So we had a lot of study time..
This week i found a scripture from Luke 6:46-49. it is so good .
46 ¶And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?
47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Great scripture and bascially explains itself. We should always do the things that we hear everyweek.. we should apply what we learn and hear so that we can recieve the blessings. We should exspecially do the things that are the seminary answers like read pray and attend church. Those three things are the three indicators that an investigator is progressing. If they do the,, then they will gain a testimony. And as members, sometimes we forget to do those things or we are lazy.. we should always do the basics so that when the trials come, we do not fall.. Helaman 5 : 12.
