Hi I'm Carlos!And I love the Temple!!

My name is Carlos;I'm a missionary serving in the Massachusetts Boston Mission.I love the Gospel,I love my family and I'm a Mormon

About Me

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!

How I live my faith

I try to be an example for every one who knows me.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Carlos!And I love the Temple!!

What is the difference between attending church and the temple?

Carlos!And I love the Temple!!
This one is easy to answer,because when we go to the Church to pray and study gospel topics.Also we take the Sacrament.At the Temple we go to do sacred ordinances which can only be done at the House of the Lord.Nothing impure can enter at the Temple and only worthy members with a recommendation can.Everyone can assist to the Church,and everyone can go to the Temple,but after they've done the first covenants and have an understanding of what the Temple is.
