Hope for Eternal Life

This has been a excelent week! Truly I have been and am being so blessed as a missionary. I love serving the lord and his children. I love this gospel. The work is progressing wondrefully. Elder Chavarría and I are working so hard, and we are having great success. We found another great family this last week, and we are super excited to teach them more. This week we will have the Baptism of Jade Motiño, the sister of the bishop. She is so ready and excited to make this promise with God. We also have scheduled a baptism with Familia Sauceda! I am so excited for them. It has been a verry special expereince, because they have such a great desire to follow Christ, and as they read and pray, the spirit truly testifies to them of the truth of this Gospel!

I love missionary work! I love sharing this Gospel! I love the scripture in 2 Nephi 2:8, "Wherefore, how great the importance to make these things known unto the inhabitants of the earth, that they may know that there is no flesh that can dwell in the presence of God, asave it be through the merits, and mercy, and grace of the Holy Messiah, who blayeth down his life according to the flesh, and taketh it again by the power of the Spirit, that he may bring to pass the cresurrection of the dead, being the first that should rise." I am grateful that God has permitted me to be a part of this teaching. I am also extremely graterful for the restored Gospel, and the truths we have been given, and the knowledge of the true purpose of Christ suffereing, that we may all repent, come unto him and be perfected by our faith and repentance and by his grace. 

As Moroni teaches, "Yea, acome 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" (Moroni 10:32). I know that this is the purpose we have. God has sent us to this life, and has sent his only begotten son to "bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man" (Moses 1:39) that we may be perfected, that we may become like him!

I feel such gratitud and humility to feel the love of God, and such a great desire to improve. I truly love the Gospel! I love our Father in Heavan! I love my Savior! I know that these things are true. All God asks of us is that we have faith in his Son Jesus Christ, trust and fallow him, repent of our sins, make and keep covanents (Promises) and endure, being faithful until the end. 

Do we trust God? Do we trust Christ? Are we willing to put our faith and hope in his "Great commandments; and be faithful unto his words, and choose eternal life" (2 Nephi 2:28)?

I testify and believe with all my heart the words of Moroni, "Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God" (Ether 12:4).

Let us have Faith, and therefore hope for a better world. Even a perfect world, where we may partake of eternal life! I love you all! This is true! I know these things are true!

Testimony

Helo everyone! This has been a great and busy week! This week we had our Zone Conference, and also another reunion in San Pedro. They were great, and once again we were able to learn so much. As for the work it is continuing to advance. Truly we have seen miracles, and have seen how the leard leads us to those whom are prepared to recieve his restorered gospel. 

We are working verry hard with Family Brown, Family Lozano Sol, Family Sauceda, Family Motiño and José Roberto. This week we had a lot of them come to church. It is such a blessing and brings such great Joy to see the people with whom we are working feel the spirit and have thier faith grow. I love these people so much! I love sharing the Gospel. 

Truthfully there is som much work to do! There are so many people who need to learn and hear of the Church of Christ. I am privlaged and grateful to a part of this work. I love my savir Jesus Christ! I love being a misionary. 

Yesterday in Church we had our fast and testimony meating, and many people shared thier testimony of Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ. Today I would like to share my testimony. 

I know that Jesus Chrsit is my Savior. I know that my Father in Heavan lives. He created a perfect plan for each of us that we might be happy and have joy. This plan includes this life, and the necesity of a savior, even Jesus Chrsit. I know that only through Faith and Repentance in his name can we find the happiness and joy that our father in Heavan hopes and prayes that we find. I know that all prophets from the beggining of times have been called of God to teach this plan and invite all humankind to repent and folllow christ. The Book of Mormon and the Bible are evidence of the profetic calling, and I know that today we having living prophets who do the same. They testify of Christ and teach the plan of Salvacion and invite us to follow him. 

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

Trust, Love, and Stay Firm through The Book of Mormon

Hey everyone! I hope all is going well for each of you. As for me all is excelent! Elder Chavarría and I are working hard as ever. We thoroughly enjoyed the General Conference and the words of our inspired leader. I am so grateful for the prophets and apostles and that God has called them in this work, and he leads and directs them that they may guide us in this lifes Journy back to our Heavanly Home.

My Companion and I have continued to talk with all those we can to share this special Gospel message with the world, and continue to work with those who have a true and sincere desire to learn and humbly follow Christ. A cool story of this week is on Friday Elder Chavarría and I were walking down the street when we saw an older couple sitting outside there house and we felt the impresion to stop and speek with them. We asked if we could rest and speak with them a little, and sat down and started to talk. We ended up talking about the Book of Mormon and the key role it plays in the restoration of the truth of the Doctrine of Christ and a powerful testimony of Him. They showed a lot of interest, and the Spirit was verry strong. We invited them to the General Conference to listen to the Prophets and Apostles of Christ in these latter days, they said they would come Sunday Morning. Then on Sunday they came, and after the session they said, "We loved it! We will be here again next week!" Elder Chavarría and I are so excited for them, and we know they have truly felt the spirit. I know there are so many people who are prepared to recieve this Gospel, and all people need it. I truly love my Savior, and I love our God! He has truthfuly created a amazing plan, and has offered as everything through his mercy and love. Elder Chavarría and I are seeing so many miracles, and we will continue to work! We had a lot of people come to the Conference, and we are grateful to our Father in Heavan who has permited us to help bring his children home. 

As for the Conference. This was a spiritual feast (Manjar)! I love the General Conference! I was able to learn so much and feel the spirit, and I know that these men have been called of God to lead his Church in the last days. For me personaly there are 3 points to this conference that stood out, 

1: Trust in the Lord and Fallow him.
2: Turn outward through Charity and Service.
3: The Book of Mormon is the Key.

I feel that truly God trust us so much, but we are so slow to put our full trust in him, this includes full trust in those he calls in his work. I also enjoyed the words of Elder Chrsitofferson who shared the scripture, "He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him" (John 6:48, 56). He then went on to teach, "To eat His flesh and drink His blood is a striking way of expressing how completely we must bring the Savior into our life—into our very being—that we may be one" 

It also called my atention the verry many times we were tought about the importance in Serving to truly show Christilike love, also know as Charity. I loved what Elder Alonso said , "Love without service is like faith without works; it's dead indeed." I also think that Sister Oscarson was inspired as she tought us to begin our service with those all around us, she tought, "How much value is there in fixing the world if the people around us are falling apart and we don't notice? Heavenly Father may have placed those who need us closest to us, knowing that we are best suited to meet their needs." We have so many opurtunities to serve each and every day. We just need to take the time to look around us and love our fellow men. 

I also loved the focus that was put on the Book of Mormon and follow up from what President Thomas S. Monson tought last Conference. I enjoyed most thoroughly the Promise and testimony given by President Nelson, "My dear brothers and sisters, I promise that as you prayerfully study the Book of Mormon every day, you will make better decisions—every day. I promise that as you ponder what you study, the windows of heaven will open, and you will receive answers to your own questions and direction for your own life." I know that this promise is true. I also enjoyed the words of Elder Callister who tought, "The Book of Mormon is not only the keystone of our religion, but it can also become the keystone of our testimonies so that when trials or unanswered questions confront us, it can hold our testimonies securely in place." In these days we need to continue and stay firm. Satan is working harder then ever to bring misery and sadness into our lifes, and the Book of Mormon is the key to keep us firm in the only path that leads to true and everlasting happiness. 

I bear my solemn testimony that these men are and have been called of God. That the words they spoke were truly the words that Christ himself feels we need. I testify that Jesus Christ is the savior of the World, that God is our Father, and The Holy Ghost will lead us and guide us home if we will yield to his enticings and put of the natural man. I testify that the Priesthood Power has been restored so the Atoning Power of Jesus Christ can be accessible. I believe and know these things to be true!

I love each and every one of you with all my heart!

"Ye do well that ye take heed!"

Hey everyone! Life is going just great here in Puerto! My companion and I are working as hard as ever, and we are enjoying our time together. Elder Chavarría is super awesome, and he makes me want to be so much better. This week found a ton of people, and we have just been teaching like crazy. On sunday we had José Roberto Armijo come to church for the second time. We had a baptismal date with him, but found out he is not married, so we will continue working with him so he can get married. We also had Cyntia and her son Kelvin. They are a great family. Her husband, Albert also had an interview last week for a new job so he can keep the sabath day holy and go to church on sundays. They are going to married and baptized in November. Also Jade, the sister of the bishop came to church for the second time! She is preparing for her baptism. She is going to be baptized the 5th of October! It is such a joyful experience to invite and help people come unto Christ! There is so much work to do here!

Sunday my companion and I both talked in Church. Elder Chavarría gave a great talk about missionary work, and 6 tools we can use to help us help others learn about the restored gospel and invite others to come unto Christ. What cought my atention most was he talked about being worthy and being a good example. I feel that is key!

I talked about the importance of leaders and revelation. I am so thankful for Prophets and Apostoles and lider´s who recieve revelation and direction to guide us as we follow Jesus Christ. Like the time of the Apostle in the New Testament Peter said, 

"We have also a more sure word of Prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed... For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost" (2 Peter 1:19-21). 

I know that like times of old we have prophet and apostles here on the earth. Jesus Christ is guiding his church through his servants! We do well if we take heed. I want to invite each of you to take heed. Listen to what these holy men have to tell us as they are moved by the Holy Ghost. Saturday and Sunday of this week! I love the General Conference! I know that God wants each of us to be there! 

I love you all!

Hey everyone! This week has been a great week! Elder Chavarría and I are working as hard as ever. We are trying to improve everyday, and are really doing our best to talk with everyone and share the Gospel of Christ. 

This week we had divisions with Elder Nolasco and Elder Mena, 2 elders in our zone. That was a lot of fun. We also had to travel to San Pedro to have divisions with the AP,s. That was also lots of fun, we were able to learn tons. I went with Elder Call! He is super awesome, and a great exmple to me. 

We have a lot of investigadors, and we are working with them alot. One of them is named José Roberto Armijo, he is an older guy, and has such a strong faith in Jesus Christ. We have been talking a lot with him, and he came to church for the first time this week. He also has a baptismal date for the 5th of October. We are also teaching the sister of the Bishop. She is super awesome, and we feel like they can really progress. There is lots of work to do here!

I really love the mission! I love helping others come unto Christ! I love this area! I love my Companion. The members here are so great, and they are really helping and supporting us so much, and there are so many people who are prepared to recieve the restored gospel! I know with all my heart that this is the truth. I am so grateful to my Father in Heavan for the blessings he has poured down upon his children, and he has commanded all who have recieved to share. This gospel is the greatest Joy I have. My greatest wish and hope is that each of you, my dear friends, will try it. I know it will bless your lives, and bring the same Joy that I have along with my family. 

One of thre greatest blessing we have recieved from the restored gospel is that of Eternal Families and Family History. Elder Chavarría has told me a lot of his desire to talk more about Family History with those we contact, and I have a greater desire to learn, so we can truly put it to practice. Yet, as I have started to study more, my eyes are being opened to one of the greatest blessings God has given us, and at the same time, what great work we have ahead of us, to share the gospel with all, and to help those on the other side. I still have much to learn, but I know that the families are important, and our children, and our childrens children need this gospel. Just as much as our fathers, and our fathers fathers. 

I love this Gospel! I am super happy! I am loving life! I love you all so much!

John 6:33: Seek ye first the Kingdom of God

Hola everyone! Life is going just wonderful! Changes passed this last week, and Elder Santos my companion had changes. He left to finish in Florida Copan. So he will have one change in Copan, and then he goes home in October. So now I have a new companion. My new companion is Elder Chavarría! I am so excited! Him and I were in the same ward for 6 months when I started my mission in San Pedro, and we are now together here in Puerto!

It has been really good, and we have been working super hard. Him and I have been trying to find lots of new Investigadors, and we are trying to talk with everybody we can. As we have put this to practice we have truly seen some miracles. There have been many or reject the message of the restauration, but we have also seen the fulfilment of what Christ says in D&C; 

"And ye are called to bring to pass the gathering of mine elect; for mine elect hear my voice and harden not their hearts" (D&C 29:7).

I have seen the fulfillment of this in these last few days. We really have been able to find the "elect". I know that this is God´s work, and that those who have been prepared, those who humble themselves and truly have the desire to follow Christ and do his will, these are they whom are elect, these are they whom will hear his voice.  

It is my hope and prayer that we can all humble ourselves before the lord, so we will not harden our hearts. I feel like one of the hardest things for me as a missionary is not getting down and discouraged when people choose not to follow Christ for fear of men. Even in the scriptures we can read of those who tated of the fruit (1 Nephi 8:28), or believed in Christ (John 12:42), yet in the end they turned away. All of this because "They loved the praise of men more than the praise of God" (John 12:43). 

So today, I would like to propose the question to each of you, along with myself. 

Do we love the praise of men more than the praise of God? 

I think this is a question we need to ask ourselves more then once, and I´m sure if we are honest with ourselves, there will always be some area in which we can improve. And if we still are not sure, I would invite you to meditate the words of King Benjamin in the Book of Mormon,

"And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent. For behold he judgeth, and his judgement is just; and the infant perisheth not that dieth in his infancy; but men drink damnation to their own souls except they humble themselves and become as little children, and believeth that salvation was, and is, and is to come, in and through the atoning blood of Chrsit, the Lord Omnipotent. For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a Child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father. And moreover, I say unto you, that the time shall come when the knowledge of a Savior shall spread throughout every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. And behold, when that time cometh, none shall be found blameless before God, except it be little children, only through repentance and faith on the name of the Lord God Omnipotent" (Mosiah 3:17-21).

I know these things are true! The Gospel of Christ is not about what we want. It is about what He wants. The Gospel of Christ is not about doing our own will, but aligning our will with his. After all, Faith and Repentance means to Follow and Change. If we are not doing his will, as simple as it may be, I would exhort you to Change dirrections, follow him with complete trust and faith!

This is a blessing. I am not perfect. None of us are. We all fall short, but the blessing is that through Humility and Love, through complete trust and faith which leads to repentace, we can be saved, we can return home, and our mistakes and sins can be washed away. 

I know this is true! Please ponder the question: Do we love the praise of men more than the praise of God? If we do, which we all do in some small or simple way, change! Let us humble ourselves bofere the Lord!

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth! I know that God the Father and his son Jesus Christ visited to prophet Joseph Smith. I know that they called him as a prophet and that latter the priesthood authority was restored. Dont love the praise of men more than the praise of God. The Book of Mormon is the evidence of these truths. Humble yourself before the Lord. Read the Book, pray and ask God with all true intention to follow him, and I promise he will respond. He has done so for me, and he will do so for each of his beloved children if they will so ask in faith and humility!

I love you all with all my heart! Have an excelent week!

Charity

Hey everyone! We have had a super busy week again! All is going verry well, and my companion and I are working hard, and trying to help the work progress here in our area, as well as in the stake and zone!

On sunday we went to visit each ward with the stake mission leader, Moroni, and a return missionary hace 1.5 years. It was good, we did follow up on the return missionary activity. We are really trying to get the missionaries and the members to work. It is so important. 

As I have been a missionary I have really come to understand that this is a team effort. If the members and the missionaries don´t work together it is verry difficult to have success. Yet, we are working hard, and I know that if we will all work with the members we will have a lot of success! 

I love the mission so much! I was talking to my companion the other day about Charity (The pure love of Christ, not my sister haha. Love you Charity) and we were talking about how amazing it is that Christ loves each and everyone of us despite our weaknesses, yet, us as people are so quick to judge and focus on the weaknesses of others. Elder Santos then told me, "We call everyone our brothers and sisters, but we just need to treat them and truly believe they are our brothers and sisters." As I though more about it, it is really true. All of those whom I truly love, my friends, my family, I love them. I love them because I see past there weaknesses, I see there strengths, and I see and know that they can improve. If we can all learn to see all of God´s children in this way, all of our brothers and sisters we will have charity!

I am so thankful for those in my life who had Charity towards me. I am far from perfect, yet because certain people in my life could see past my weaknesses, trust and confide in me, and see what I at the moment, or in moments cannot see, I have become who I am to day, and will continue to become who God will make me tomarrow. 

Charity has power! Love is the center of the gospel! For this reason Paul tought, "Though I speak with tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith,so that I could romove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing" (1 Corinthians 13:1-2).  

We must develop the gift of Charity! We must learn to love others as Christ loves us. I pray that we can see past our brothers´ weaknesses and love them for their strengths, and trust in Christ´s atonement, that one day their weaknesses can become strong (Ether 12:27). Let us strive to keep the two great commandments that our Lord and Savior tought, "Though shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, though shalt love thy neighbour as thyself" (Matthew 22:37-39). 

Coincidence? I don´t belive so. As my football coach would so, "Nothing happens for a reason" (Brent Walk). If we learn to love, our God as well as our fellow men, our brothers and sisters, we will "Become the sons of God; that when he shall appear we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is; that we may have this hope; that we may be purified even as he is pure" (Moroni 7:48). 

I love each and every one of you! I know that these things are true! I know God lives! He is our Father! He has perfect love. He sent his son Jesus Christ who atoned for all our sins. Through him we can change, and all of as can change. Let us love, let us trust in the Atonement of Christ that we all so desperately need! 

I love you my brothers and sister!

WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD

Hey everyone! Life just keeps tickin´! Life is going great here in Honduras! These week we were super busy. 

On Wednessday we went to San Pedro, and a seventy, Elder Cordón came with his wife. We had an awesome conference, and I was able to learn so much. Then we had another reunion with Elder Cordón on Friday with the zone leaders, so we were only able to work tuesday, thursday, and saturday of this week. On sunday we also had to travel to help other elders with some stuff. 

It is pretty crazy so far here in Puerto. I still feel like I havn´t quite gotten into a rythm. We have to travel a lot, and it´s dificult at times balencing the time between investigadores, members, and the zone. But I know that God helps us out. Specifically my companion and I have really been reflecting on what we need to do to help accelerate the work here in our zone and the choloma stake. We were able to learn a lot from Elder Cordón, and are excited to put it into practice!

Just to give some highlights of the most important thing I learned;

1- 99.9% obedience is not enough

I feel as though this was the lesson most important I was able to learn, and I realized how much work I have to do. Elder Cordón shared with us the story of Moses, and what happened to him when he talked with God face to face. God explained first and for most, "Though art my son" (Moses 1:4). Then following this God shows moses all that he has created. Here we see that we truly are children of God, and we truly have devine potential. Yet following this scene, the presence of God withdraws from moses and moses says, "Now for this cause I know that man is nothing" (Moses 1:10). And imediately following, satan comes to tempt moses saying, "Moses, son of man, worship me" (Moses 1:12). But, Moses having seen God, and knowing the potential he has and knowing his true identity, Moses told satan, Who art thou? For behold, I am a son of God (Moses 1:13)

What we learn from this story, as Elder Cordón tought, is we are indeed Sons of man, and man is nothing. Yet, we are also sons of God, and God is everything, he is God. We are free to chose our destiny. We are free to choose to be sons of man, an enemy to God, or, we can yield to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and put off the natural man and become a sain (a son of God) through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and become as a child... willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon us (Mosiah 3:19).

We must be exactly obedienct! We must put of the natural man. We must be like Moses, cast satan away, we must see who we truly are! WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD! He is our father. We can become like him!

I, like each of you have weaknesses. I am far from perfect. But for this purpose God sent his only beggoten son! We can do this! God, our father wants us to do this! He wants to see us repent, he wants to see us change, he wants to see us put of the natural man. He want that because he knows it´s the only way to happiness. And God has said, "no unclean thing can enter into his kingdom" (3 Nephi 27:19). We must be cleansed through our savior and redeamer, by becoming as a child, and putting of the natural man, saying no to satan. 

Our beloved apostle Paul put it this way, "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty" (2 Corinthians 6:17-18).

I know this is the truth! I am extremely thankful for my savior! I am thankful that through him I may be cleansed, I may put of the natural man, and I may become a saint. I know that I am a Child of God. I have devine potential, and I can and will be like him. It is my choice, and I have chosen. I now invite each of you to choose wisely! 

I love you all! I know this is the truth! I know God lives, he is our father, he sent his Son, and his son, even Jesus Christ truly died and was then ressurected for you and me. I also testify that God the father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith in 1820 and did indeed restore the truth to the earth. The Book of Mormon is the evidence and is true! 

I love you all!

Eternal Life

Hola! I hope everyone is having a fantstic day! I am doing great! This week was a great week! And Today has been an excelent day. 

The Highlight of this week was a activity we did stake wide. We had a Devocional with all the Returned Missionaries and missionaries. The Stake president, Mission President, and an Area Seventy were present. We were able to present an activity challenge. The chalenge was that each return missionary give a referance to the missionaries and baptize a friend, familiy member, or acosiate in 2 months. Elder Hernandez the seventy spoke about the importance of referencas and missionary work for not only 1.5 or 2 years, but a life time, and also talked about how missionaries are called to teach the gospel, to find is the duty of all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter day Saints. 

Something that really called my atencion of what he said is we as members of Christ´s church are not here to teach salvation, we are here to teach Eternal Life. Thanks to Christ, each and every one of us will be saved, we will be resurected. Yet, to live with God and our families we must make and do the correct covanents and ordinances through the power and authority of God which is only found in his church that was restored through the prohpet Joseph Smith. I solemnly testify that God lives, as well as his Son Jesus Christ. That Juan the Baptist appeared, visited, and restored the Aaronic Priesthood to Joseph Smith, and later, Peter, James, and John, to restore the Melchizedek Priesthood. I testify that through Jesus Christ we are saved, and through following him, and making covanents with him, and being changed through him will we recieve Eternal Life. 

As gospel topics teaches, "Eternal life is the phrase used in scripture to define the quality of life that our Eternal Father lives. The Lord declared, "This is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man" (Moses 1:39). Immortality is to live forever as a resurrected being. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, everyone will receive this gift. Eternal life, or exaltation, is to live in God's presence and to continue as families (see D&C 131:1–4). Like immortality, this gift is made possible through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. However, to inherit eternal life requires our "obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel" (Articles of Faith 1:3)." (Gospel Topics - Eternal Life).

I testify that God is our Father! He loves us! I wants to see us happy, and this is the only way. That we change and become like him. "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom though hast sent" (John 17:3). Of this I testify!

I love you all! I pray for you all! I believe in you all! Have a great week!

The Gift of Change

Hey everyone! Life is going great here in Honduras! I can´t believe how time flies. I love being here and am learning so much!

This week we had boundry changes in the ward, so my companion and I went to a new place called travesia. It is about 20 minutes from puerto on bus. It was pretty cool. It is basically a town with a high population of african americans. It´s definatly got a different culture, and many of the people there speak Spanish, as well as a native dielect called garifuna. We were able to find some cool people, and how to return this week. 

Other then that were are continuing to work hard. This week I have really been greateful for Jesus Christ and the Atonement. 

I have been thinking alot lately about the plan of Happiness and the central piece that Jesus Christ plays in that plan. In 3 Nephi 27:19-20 Jesus Christ tought, 

"And no unclean thing can enter into his kingdom..."

In other words, as Christ has tought us, if we are not perfect as he and his father are perfect, or clean as him and his father are clean, we can not enter into there kingdom. Yet, because God loves us, he sent his son Jesus Christ (John 3:16). And Christ continues,

"...therefore nothing entereth into his rest save it be those who have washed their garments in my blood, becuase of their faith, and the repentance of all their sins, and their faithfulness unto the end. Now this is the commandment: Repent, all ye ends of the earth, and come unto me and be baptized in my name, that ye may be sanctified by the reception of the Holy Ghost, that ye may stand spotless (clean) before me at the last day."

What a blessing! Through Christ, even though we are not perfect yet, we can repent, we can change, and we can still be made clean. Thanks to Christ we are given a time to prepare. I solemnly testify that this Change, Repentance is possible through christ! Personly, I have many weaknesses, I am not perfect, I am far from it. But thanks to my savior and redeamer, our brother Jesus Christ I know that I can repent. I can Change, and over time my weaknesses can be made strenghts. (Ether 12:27). 

God loves us! Who knows what will make us happy, and he knows wickedness never was happiness (Alma 41:10). For this reason he sent his son and has called the world to repentance. It is the blessing he has given us which is the only true way to happiness. 

In the Book of Mormon the prophet Alma was teaching of Jesus Christ and this gift he has offered it. 

"Yea, I say unto you come and fear not, and lay aside every sin, which easily doth beset you, which doth bind you down to destruction, yea, come and go forth, and show unto your God that ye are willing to repent (Change) of your sins and enter into a covenant with him to keep his commandments, and witness it unto him this day by going into the waters of babtism (Alma 7:15)

And then comes the blessing in verse 16, "And whosever doeth this, and keepeth the commandments of God from thenceforth... he shall have eternal life."

This is the Gospel of Jesus Christ! This is the plan of Happiness our Father in Heavan has for us! I testify of Him! I testify of his son Jesus Christ, he payed for our sins, to offer us the gift of Repentance (Change)! With all the love of my heart I invite each of you, along with myself, with the prophet Alma of the Book of mormon to repent! To change! 

I love you all!

Life Continues

Hey everyone! Life is good in Honduras! I am enjoying my new area and continuing to learn lots. This week was a verry good week! We were able to find a lot of new people to teach, and are very busy with all the many investigadors we have. 

On thursday we had divisions with the AP´s, and that was pretty cool. Other then that there isn´t a whole lot new. The work just keeps going forward! My Companion is super awesome, and we are getting along great! It is super hot here in Puerto, and I am adjusting. The cool thing is in our room in our house we have air condicioning, but in the middle of the night leaving our room is like stepping into a sauna.

I love this work and am so thankful for this gospel! I am so thankful for Jesus Christ! What a blessing it is for each of us to have the oppurtunity to repent, to pregress, and to build a spiritual house brick by brick! I know that Christ lives! I know he loves me, and each of us! This is his church! 

I love you all!

Miracles!

Helo everyone! Wow I can´t believe how fast time is flying! It is now almost August, we have changes this week, and I have been here in Copan Ruinas for 6 months. We still don´t know what will happen, but most likely I will be leaving, but the Lords will be done!

The big news of this week is we had a Baptism here in Copan Ruinas!!! His name is José Aroldo Ramirez Rodriguez! We don´t have any pictures because he asked that we don´t take any, but Elder Hurtado and I were verry excited! He is a great guy, and really has such a great desire to follow Christ! The truth is this week was a crazy one. We decided to visit him every day this week to help be preapared to make this big step in his life. Starting with Monday we had a family night with Him and a member family. It was great, and He was verry excited. Then Tuesday when we came he wasn´t there and we had to go to another appointment, so we weren´t able to meat with him. Then Wednessday we passed by Famila Hernandez, and they told us that he wanted to talk to us, becuase he had some doubts. We were able to talk to him, and He told us that he had had a hard week. He told us he did´t feel super good, as well he hadn´t slept becuase he had had nightmares, and many people were telling him not to go through. He told us he wasn´t sure. We encouraged him to keep reading and praying. Then Thursday again, we passed by and he wasn´t there. Friday in the morning we called Familia Hernandez, and they told us that thursday in the night Aroldo brought all the books and told them he didn´t want to go through with it. My Companion and I were devistated. We prayed alot that morning, and then in the afternoon, after an appointment we prayed as a companionship asking God to help us find him, and to help him feel in his heart the truth, and to not fall into satan traps. We went looking for him, and ran into Jesus, the son of Julian. He told us that Aroldo came back and said he made a mistake and he wants to keep going, he is just confused. Julian was able to talk to him and share his testimonio as well as explain to him that Satan always works the hardest when we are about to make a good desicion! After this we were able to talk some more, and he wanted to keep going, and he told us he knows that it is true. Then Saturday he was baptized, and Sunday Confirmed! 

My companion and I were able to learn so much from this experience! The most important is that God loves his Children! And God answers all our prayers. Also that the members or friend are so important in the conversion. In this story, without Familia Hernandez, and don´t feel that Aroldo would have been able to overcome all of the temptations of satan, but with the help of a true friend, and a true servant of Christ all things are possible!

The other big news of this week is we put a Babtismal date with Karen and Fabiola! They are 2 youth, who have truly been reading the Book of Mormon and Bible, and praying and asking God for wisdom, and have recieved thier answer! They have both told us that they believe it is true, and Karen told us that she had a dream, and was reading the Book of Mormon, when a Dove came and made the letter S-I (Yes) with sticks on top of the Book. She said that when she woke up she was full of Joy and said it´s true! 

I love this Gopel! There is so much work to do! I know God loves each of us! He answers our prayers! 

I love you all! Have a great week!
