Conversion to Christ

Hey everyone! This has been another week full of adventure! Elder Chavarría and I have been super busy. All is going verry well! I am feeling lots better, and have no problems with my health. I love this work! This week I have really been trying to Learn more of Jesus Chrsit, and put him at the center of my life. I love what Elder D. Todd Christofferson said, "We do not strive for conversion to the Church but to Christ and His gospel" (Why the Church - by Elder D. Todd Christofferson). As I truly make an effort to convert myself to Christ I feel a greater desire to fallow him and a great Love and gratitud for him! I truly love my savior Jesus Christ!

I love this time of year! My two favorite Holidays. Thanksgiving and Christmas! One we celbrate thanks all around the world, and the other, the birth of our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ. I think it is a great time, thanksgiving, to prepare ourselves to truly appreciate and understand what Christmas is all about. This Thanksgiving I would like to invite each of you to study more about Jesus Christ with the question in mind, why am I thankful for Jesus Christ. I am sure if you do so, this Christmas you will have a greater understanding of why the birth of Jesus Chrsit is so important, and will have a greater desire to follow his perfect example by serving and loving all and LIGHTING THE WORLD

I love you all! Happy Thanksgiving! Have a great week!

"Sanctify yourselves that your minds become single to God"

Hey Everyone! I hope all is going well! Life continues here in Honduras! I am doing verry well! Elder Chavarría and I have had a week full of adventure! This week there has been tons of rain, and we have gotten wet a lot. We also helped build the floor of a house in a swap. That was fun. We also got a ride in a semi-truck, and many other adventures including that I got Hopitalized and they found that I have Kidney Stones. We are working extrremely hard, and finding wonderful people who are prepared to recieve this wonderful gospel. 

I love the mission so much! I feel that truly my companion and I are so blessed. Our area is so great. There is so much work to do. The members are so good to us, and we have so many great investigadores. 

In these last couple days I have been reading in the Book Heleman in the Book of Mormon, and I have noticed the great danger of pride. Sometimes, when God blesses us it is so easy to forget the source of our blessings. I have noticed, that at times, even as a missionary, I sometimes am so weak and so quickly forget the Lord. As I was reading I came to realize how I need to humble myself before the Lord, and commit myself to his work. The scripture that really called my atention was Heleman 3:35, "Nevertheless they did fast and pray oft, and did wax stronger and stronger in their humility, and firmer and firmer in the faith of Christ, unto the filling their souls with joy and consolation, yea, even to the purifying and the sanctification of their hearts, which sanctification cometh because of their yielding their hearts unto God." 

What I really like about this scripture is that as we truly make an effort to remember God, or as we come unto him, he will give us the help we need. And in this way our humility will increase as well as our faith and desire to follow him and keep his commandments. And this brings sanctification, purity, which is necesary to return to Gods presence, and is only possible through Christ (3 Nephi 27:19-20). And this comes through  humility and yielding our hearts to God.

As Jesus Christ toguht us in D&C he said, "And if your eye be single to my glory, your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things. Therefore, sanctify yourselves that your minds become single to God, and the days will come that you shall see him; for he will unveil his face unto you, and it shall be in his own time, and in his own way, and according to his own will (D&C 88:67-78)."

And what is the Glory of God? God has said, "For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man (Moses 1:39)." 

As we humbly dedicate ourselves to our Father in Heavans work and Glory. As we work all our days to bring to pass the inmortality and eternal life of man, which is only possible through Christ and his Gospel; "that no man shall come unto the Father but by me or by my word, which is my law, saith the Lord (D&C 132:12)."

I know these things are true! I love this restored Gospel! I am so extremely thankful for our Savior Jesus Chrsit! It is my hope and prayer that we can dedicate ourselves to his work. That we can sanctify ourselves so we can return to his presence, and that we may show gratutud and humility to the great sacrifice of our redeemer Jesus Christ and our Father in Heavan! I love this work! 

I love you all!

#lighttheworld

The work here in Puerto continues! We are being so blessed here in Puerto Cortes, and we are finding so many wonderful people who have been prepared to recieve the Gospel of Christ! Elder Chavarría and I are working hard, and all is well.

This year as members and disciples of Jesus Christ we are all invited to #lighttheworld with the light of Christ through 25 ways in 25 days. From the 1 of December until the 25th of December we are all invited to serve, lift and share of Christ light. Truly this is a great oppurtunity to bring the Joy and Light of Christ into a world that so desperately needs. My companion and I are extremely excited to light the world, and I invite you all to join us! 

Why do we need the light of Christ? According to Gospel topics in lds.org we read, "The Light of Christ is the divine energy, power, or influence that proceeds from God through Christ and gives life and light to all things. The Light of Christ influences people for good and prepares them to receive the Holy Ghost" (Light of Christ).

I know that we all need the Light of Christ! I love you all! I know Jesus Christ lives! He is the light of the world! Jesus Chrsit said, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12). Let us light the world but serving as Christ would serve, loving as Christ would love, and most importantly, inviting all to come unto Christ, that they shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life. 

I love you all! Have a great week!
