Hi I'm Mario

I'm from Texas. I work in Construction. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

  I am a husband, a father of three beautiful girls, and i work in construction. I like playing basketball and helping my children with their home work.Me and my family share some time reading the scriptures and praying together every night before we go to bed. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I'm a Mormon because I know that the gospel is true, that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was restored by the Prophet Joseph Smith, and that he was guided by our Heavenly Father, his son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I Believe in the Atonement of Jesus Christ, that he came into the world to bear the sins of the world and that God has a plan for every one so that we can be together forever. I also know that he answers our prayers all we have to do is listen. I used to think i had everything in this world but one day I felt like I was missing something, so i closed my eyes and asked God what was it that was missing in my life and right away I felt this peace and comfort and a warm feeling that came over me. The very next day a couple of Missionaries knocked on my door which hadn't done in over a year since me and my family had been living in this address. They shared the gospel and now me and my family are baptised. Also me and my wife both have callings in church and one of our daughters has gone to the Temple to do baptism for the dead. 

How I live my faith

 I am a Gospel Principles teacher and I get to teach all the new members and investigators about the gospel. I am very glad with my calling in the church because I get to learn alot as I prepare for my class, it seems that the more I prpare the class the more I get to know our Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. I also like to go out with the missionaries during the week to their appointments to share the gospel and also to share my testimony. 

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Mario
 The great sacrifice Jesus Christ made to pay for our sins and overcome death is called the Atonement. The savior atoned for our sins by suffering and by giving His life on the cross.How Jesus loves us, to suffer such spiritual and physical agony for our sake! How great the love of Heavenly Father that He would send His Only Begotten Son to suffer and die for the rest of His children. One of the reasons why Jesus Christ was the only person who could be our Savior is because He was chosen by our Heavenly Father.Without the Atonement we would have been lost and would have never had the opportunity to return to live with our Heavenly Father.  Show more Show less
