Hi I'm Ernie Langston

The Plan of Salvation - knowing Heavenly Father loves each of us & given us a way to return to Him caused me to become a Mormon .

About Me

Whenever anyone asks "How are you?" My answer is almost always, "Better than most! My life is so very blessed. I have good health, live in sunny, southern CA, near the beach ,and most of all have received a testimony of Jesus the Christ and the Plan of Salvation. I have learned that families can be together for eternities. I have also learned that we lived with Heavenly Father as His spirit children before coming to this earth to gain a body so we could be like Him. When we die, we return to Him, taking all we have learned here to continue our progression. I know that through the atoning sacrifice of His only begotten Son, even Jesus Christ, we can repent and be baptized and enter into the path that will bring us back to live with Heavenly Father with our families forever. No matter what trials I must go through in this life, I know that He lives, and has given me hope of not just being immortal, but to enjoy the blessings of eternal life. On June 1, 1974 at 4:00pm on a Saturday afternoon, in Brighton Colorado, I was baptized and received the gift of the Holy Ghost. I had to quit smoking, drinking and a number of other things to get baptized! Honestly, I felt that God could not forgive anyone as sinful as me. I have learned that He truly loves ALL His children that He placed here on this earth. I promise you that He loves you too! If you are sincerely seeking answers and are willing to learn of Him and follow Him, He will make a way for you too!

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, it is the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. I have always recognized that Jesus is the Christ, my Savior and recognized how he suffered and died on the cross for me. But, I did not know what that really meant. When I began to learn that we lived with Him in the pre-existance and chose to come to this earth to learn and progress so we could live with Him again after this life, I was interested. But, when I learned of how far we could progress, I knew that this Fullness of the Gospel was true. But, what really sold me is that the Plan included everyone that was ever born, or that would ever be born. He truly loves all His children and has made a way for each of us to not only save ourselves, but our families and loved ones, and then to reach out and save others.

How I live my faith

I love sharing my testimony of the fullness of the Gospel that has been restored to the earth! I have held many callings in my almost 40 years as a member of the Church. At this stage of my life, I particularly enjoy doing genealogy work and attending the Temple as frequently as possible to do the work for those that have died without gettingvtheirvwork done.
