Accountability before God (The Gospel of Jesus Christ)

Helo everyone! Life is flying by so fast! I love being a missionary, and I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I feel so very grateful to have a loving Heavenly Father and I am so grateful for his Son Jesus Christ who payed for my rescue that I might repent and change, and be santified and purified by my faithfulness and the grace of our savior Jesus Chrsit. I also feel so very grateful for the Holy Ghost! God truly blesses us so very much each and every day! 

I am know just with Elder Mery again, on thursday Elder Martinez went to San Pedro. It´s been a crazy week once again, but we are looking forward to this coming week! Linet Mendez, an investigador will get baptized this friday, and we are so very excited for her! She has grown so very much and has change is darastic ways. I can truly testify that the Gospel changes lives for the better, and that repentence is so real and powerful. 

I love his work and am grateful for his restored Gospel and the marvelous work and a wonder that being brought to pass in these latter days. I am grateful for the Holy Scripture and modern day prophets and apsotles who guide and teach the correct path to fallow. 

Elder Quinten L. Cook Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, "As we look around, we see the devastation of wickedness and addiction at every turn. If, as individuals, we are really concerned about the Savior's ultimate judgment of us, we should seek repentance. I am afraid many people no longer feel accountable to God and do not turn to the scriptures or the prophets for guidance. If we, as a society, would contemplate the consequences of sin, there would be massive public opposition to pornography and the objectification of women. As Alma told his son Corianton in the Book of Mormon, "Wickedness never was happiness."" (Prepare to Meet God).

I testify that one day each and every one of will surely be resurected and we will be judge by God, and we will be accountable to God for who we have become. It is only through Faith in Christ and fallowing humbly the counsels of his beloved servants through repentance and strict Obedience that we might one day we made clean. It is by living the Gospel of Jesus Christ wholeheartadly making and keeping covanents with our father in heaven, like Baptism that we might truly recieve the power of God in our lives and be sanctified and purified for that great and glorious day! I wholeheartedly Testify that Jesus is the Christ and that this Gospel and plan was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith! I also testify that President Russell M. Nelson has been chosen to lead this work in these latter days. I invite all, with all my heart, my love , and humility, to come, learn of the truths that are tought. Read the Book of Mormon another testiment of Jesus Chrsit. Ask God if it be True. And make the decision to repent and follow the example of Jesus Christ. This work is true, this work is real. 

I love you all!

Wheat and Tares

Helo everyone! Life continues onward! This week has been super crazy and super busy! But all is going great! My companion and I continue to work very hard! This week we had Zone conference on tuesday and we learned so very much! Then we had divisions and we had to help some missionaries. But all is well! 

The work here in Cofradía is awesome! We continue to work very closely with Familia Hernandez. I love this family!!! Margarita and Antonio are the head of the family and are older, and are very nice. They both don´t listen particularly to our message, but treat us verry kindly. They have 9 kids, 25 grandkids, and like 5 great grandkids! There kids are Luiz, Claudia, Gladys, Hector, Wilmer, Karla, Ada, José, and Victor. Gladys, Karla and Ada are already members. But some of thier kids like the USA. Right now we are currently teaching the child of Karla (Christofer 10), José and Marlen (His wife), and Vicotr and carolina (His wife)! They are a super cool family and are very sincere. 

We also have various families with whom we are visiting, Familia Guillen (Ada, Eduardo, Bryon, Cristel, Naomi, Jeremy, and Reine), Familia Natarén Amaya (Mario, Elizabeth, Alejandra, Ricksi, Mario, Bryon, Elizabeth, Beverli, and Alison).  These families are so great and we are so excited for each of them! 

I love the work of our Lord and Savior! I know that this is his work. I know that we have been sent to teach repentance and baptize converts and by so doing we are fulfilling the parable of our Savior Jesus Chrsit when he tought, 

"Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the wheat into my barn; and the tares are bound in bundles to be burned" (Matthew 13:24-30).

I now that now is the time of the harvest! I know that God has called a prohpet and has sent his servants to gather the wheat! This is the purpose of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! This is our purpose as members and missionaries, invite all to come unto Chrsit! This is the invitation of our Savior and Redeemer, 

"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. And now for a man to take up his cross, is to deny himself all ungodliness, and every worldly lust, and keep my commandments" (JST Matthew 16:25–26).

Let us deny ourselves of all ungodliness! Let us fallow our Savior, let us keep his commandments. Let us be humble and do his will. Let us repent, change, be baptized, recieve the Gift of the Holy Ghost and endure to the end. Let us be faithful and implement the Character of our savior! I know that God plan is perfect as well as his life, and if only we will trust him and have faith in him all these miracles are possible! 

I love you all!

"Come unto me... and ye shall find rest"

Helo everyone! All is going well here in Honduras. I love this place. I can´t believe how fast time is flying by. This week was a good one. Truly Elder Mery and I have seen miracles and blessings. The Gospel of Jesus Christ in incredible. We have a family that we are teaching, and this week more members of the family joined us in the lessons and have shown great interest in know more about Jesus Christ and his perfect plan for us. We were also able to find some new people to teach who show a lot of interest in learning more about our savior and his gospel. 

This week I have particuluraly felt the need we all have as children of God to fallow the example of Jesus Christ and become more like him. As I was studying the new testament I came across this scripture which is found in Matthew 11:28-30,

 "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." 

I love the invitation that our savior extends, inviting us first, to come unto him, second, to take his yoke upon us (The yoke of Christ is a symbol of being a desciple of Christ), or fallow him, and third, to learn of him. By doing these three things we will find rest unto our souls. 

In John 5 a similar lesson is tought, "Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?"

By our faith in Jesus Christ and our obedience unto him, or by following him and learning of him we begin to overcome the world, we begin to find rest unto our souls. The world in which we live in is full of challenges, strugles, temptations and all sort of things, yet when we put God first, when we believe in Jesus the Son of God and overcome the world we will find peace and Joy. The trials will remain, the world wont magically change, but we will change, and we will see things differently. This is our true purpose. To become pure and clean, to become saints. 

It is for this very reason that the last invitation of the Book of Mormon by Moroni is as fallows, "Yea, come unto Christ, and be perfected in him, and deny yourselves of all ungodliness; and if ye shall deny yourselves of all ungodliness, and love God with all your might, mind and strength, then is his grace sufficient for you, that by his grace ye may be perfect in Christ; and if by the grace of God ye are perfect in Christ, ye can in nowise deny the power of God. And again, if ye by the grace of God are perfect in Christ, and deny not his power, then are ye sanctified in Christ by the grace of God, through the shedding of the blood of Christ, which is in the covenant of the Father unto the remission of your sins, that ye become holy, without spot" (Moroni 10:32-33).

I know and testify that God love us! He cares about us and is watching over us. I know that his plan is perfect and that through Jesus Christ and his gospel we can become what God wants us to become. We can be different. I know that by fallowing this plan and living his Gospel we will find Joy and happiness. "wickedness never was happiness" (Alma 41:10).

I love you all! I know these things are true!
