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!
