Hi I'm Mario Rene, I am a Mormon.

I was born & raised in Mexico. I am a retired computer programmer and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

About Me

Like Nephi, a Book of Mormon prophet. I, Mario, having been born of goodly parents, therefore I was taught somewhat in all the learning of my parents and grandparents. I am the second child having an older sister and three younger brothers. We were raised by my parents who thought us to be respectful to our elders and to fear God. Because of that fear I have always have tried to do the things that I was taught, especially to keep the commandments that Moses received from Jehovah for the children of Israel the same commandments that apply to each and every one in our time. When the time came for me to find my eternal companion the mother of my children, I lived my life in such a way to be worthy to go to the House of The Lord to be married and sealed for time an all Eternity. I have three children, nine grandchildren and three great grandchildren. An Eternal family, a truth that the Church teaches we can become! Como Nefi, un profeta del Libro de Mormón. Yo, Mario nací de buenos padres y recibí, por tanto, alguna instrucción en toda la ciencia de mis padres y abuelos. Soy el segundo hijo teniendo a una hermana mayor y tres hermanos menores. Al ser criado por mis padres, siempre nos inculcaron el temor a Dios y el respeto a nuestros mayores, por ese temor siempre trate de hacer las cosas que mis padres me inculcaron, especialmente el respeto a guardar los mandamientos que Moisés recibió de Jehová para el pueblo de Israel los cuales también son para nuestra época.

Why I am a Mormon

Because of the example given by my maternal grandparents I have a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the restored gospel. The example set by my grandfather Toribio, a man of integrity, honesty and always willing to go the second mile to serve his fellow men has been the the reason all his posterity has been able to follow his example. The kind of service throughout his life to his neighbors, friends and family made him a unique person even though it was not easy for him. As I have studied the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, I have come to know that for our Heavenly Father makes no exceptions of persons all are important. There is nothing more important to me than being a member in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The teachings of the scriptures have increased my faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. As I learn the plan of salvation that Heavenly Father has made available to all, has given me the desire to be of service to my fellow men and to live a righteous life. As I keep the commandments, has made me a more tolerable and conscious of the things that I must do in my life. The knowledge that our Heavenly Father is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow that He communicates to mankind by means of a living prophet even Thomas S. Monson, we see on a daily basis the hand of God in our lives. I know that because of a living prophet there is only one true church of Jesus Christ having the priesthood authority in its fullness, to seal families for time and al eternity. This knowledge is available to all the people in the world so that they can take advantage of an eternal family. I have studied the Bible as the Book of Mormon and I know that both testify that Jesus Christ lives and is our Savior and Redeemer not only for us in the Church of Jesus Christ but to all the world whether they are christians or not. I know that as we repent from our sins the atonement of Jesus Christ will allow us to be together as families with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

As I live the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, gives me the opportunity to be more like my Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. Serving my fellow men, and being thankful for those who help me and my family in our shortcomings. As I prepare the lessons for the primary children, I get the opportunity to see the children learn the teachings of Jesus Christ and it reminds me that we as adults have to turn our hearts like the hearts of these little children so to be worthy of the Kingdom of our Heavenly Father. It is a privilege to be able to teach the Restored Gospel to these little children. I know that Heavenly Father lives, that He sent his only Begotten Son even Jesus Christ to allow each of us the opportunity to return to our Heavenly Father as long as we keep his commandments and follow His example. En qué forma vivo mi religión Al vivir las enseñanzas de la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Últimos Días, me da la oportunidad de llegar a ser más como mi Salvador y redentor Jesucristo. Sirviendo a mis semejantes, agradeciendo las atenciones hacia mí y mi familia. Al preparar lecciones para los niños de la primaria, me da la oportunidad de ver a los niños aprender las enseñanzas de Jesucristo, y recuerdo que tenemos que volver nuestros corazones como la de un niño para ser merecedores del Reino de Nuestro Padre Celestial, es un privilegio poder enseñar a estos niños el evangelio restaurado de Jesucristo en nuestra época. Se que Dios vive, que El mando a su Hijo unigénito aun Jesucristo para darnos esa oportunidad de regresar a la presencia de Nuestro Padre Celestial si es que vivimos sus leyes y seguimos sus ejemplo.
