We’re Mahonri and Helaman from Mexico


Pack your bags! Come meet friends around the world!

¡Hola, amigos!*

Mahonri and Helaman are brothers who live on the coast of Mexico. Their parents named them after two great men from the Book of Mormon. Mahonri Moriancumer was the brother of Jared. He saw the finger of the Lord. Captain Helaman was a righteous leader. He led the two thousand stripling warriors.

These brothers hope to live up to the names that their parents gave them. They want to be just like Mahonri and Helaman from the Book of Mormon.

Our parents were sealed in the Guadalajara Mexico Temple in 2003. This is the closest temple to where we live. It takes about six hours to drive there. We love to visit the temple and know that someday we will go inside, just like our parents do now.

We enjoy spending time as a family. Every Saturday we go to the beach near our home. We eat shrimp—our favorite food—and tacos and tortas (a kind of sandwich). We walk along the Malecón, or waterfront street. We make sandcastles and play in the ocean.
