Hi I'm Carlos!And I love the Temple!!
I was raised in a small city in the smallest state in Mexico.My mom was baptized on 1985,and I was born in 1989, so I grew up in the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints.Now I'm 23 years old and I'm serving as a missionary representative of our Lord Jesus-Christ in the Massachusetts Boston Mission. I bear my testimony about The Book of Mormon,cuz I've seen the change it makes in people's life,as well in my own life.There's no other way to know better what God wants from me. I know,and I'm so grateful for Joseph Smith, cuz he was brave and kept his testimony til the last moment. I know that my Redeemer lives!! I have felt His love,and His kindness. I've made mistakes, but with His Atonement and my repentance I will be cleansed.I testify of His Church; the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only which has the authority of the Priesthood of God to make the ordinances we need to be together forever as a family. I know all this,and I will know more,and the people will know it beacuse "the field is white and ready for the harvest..." I've been called to serve to the people in New England, Elder Martinez,that's me.
Why I am a Mormon
My mom meet the Church in 85,so I was born into it ^^ and I took the covenants because I knew they would help me to be a better person,and it was!
Why do Mormons go on missions?
We go on missions because we want to show how grateful we are for the blessings of the Gospel and the happiness we have by knowing that Jesus is our Savior.So we want to everyone to know it!We go and testify about the things we know,the things we've experienced and how the knowledge of the Gospel help us to be more in harmony with God. Also,is required to every man in age,who is worthy and has the will to do it.Because no one is obligated to do so. We're the fishermen of our times (Matthew 4:19) We have been called for Him through his living Prophet.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The Book of Mormon has helped me to understand more my purpose in this life. It also helped me to have a full assurance that God loves me, and I know He wants to embrace me in the arms of His love. Knowing that I am not a spiritual orphan helps me have a fervent desire to return to that heavenly Father who gives me blessings EVERY DAY
How I live my faith
I try to be an example for every one who knows me.
