Hi I'm Ingrid B Carvajal

I'm a Mormon and I will always be!

About Me

Ingrid Bibiana Carvajal, live currently in Saint Cloud, Florida. Widower from the late Ivan Ortiz. Femenine, Self assured, Loyal, and a Romantic at heart. Enjoy travel and dinning out. Forward looking and have left yesterday's problems behind. I am someone that will mean as much to you as you are to me, and I am not afraid to show it. Easy by nature, easy to be with, sometimes serious, always spontaneous, and always finding something to laugh about, honest and loyal, and spiritual. Romantic and Sweet. I have a good sense of humor, common sense, and easy going nature - non judgemental and spontaneity, good values, moral, and open mindness. FRIENDS ARE FOREVER AND DIFFICULT TO FIND.

Why I am a Mormon

I RECEIVED UNLIMITED ANSWERS FOR ALL THESE YEARS DOUBTS AND CONFUSED MIND. I PLANTED THE CELESTIAL FATHER GOSPEL INSIDE MY HEART, RECEIVING THE HOLLY GHOST, WHICH HELPS ME TO LIVE EVERYDAY AS IF" TODAY WAS THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF MY LIFE". I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO ME TODAY WITHOUT HAVING THE HEAVENLY FATHER'S MANUAL, LAWS AND GUIDANCE. MY LIFE CHANGED COMPLETELY, MY HUSBAND AND I LIVED IN NEW JERSEY, AND HE GOT LUNG AND BRAIN CANCER. MY HUSBAND ASKED ME TO HELP HIM TO MOVE TO FLORIDA, AND TO HELP HIM TO DIE THERE. I DROVE BY MYSELF FROM NJ TO FL, THE LARGEST U--HAUL TRUCK, A 26 FOOTER PLUS A 4 WHEEL TRAILER, WITH ME 2 LARGE DOGS JUMPING ALL OVER THE POWER STEERING WHEEL AND I HAD THE FLU TOO. IT TOOK ME 3 DAYS TO ARRIVE TO FLORIDA. I SENT HIM BY AIRPLANE WITH HIS MOM ANA ORTIZ AND HIS SISTER DORIS ORTIZ, BECAUSE HE COULDN'T WALK ANYMORE. HE WAS DYING AND WE DIDN'T HAVE TO MUCH TIME LEFT. I FORGOT ABOUT MY NEEDS, I SACRIFICE MY TIME FOR HIM, BECAUSE IT WAS WORTH IT! HE WAS AND STILL IS "THE LOVE OF MY LIFE". I LOST MY 2 HOMES IN NJ AND MORE THINGS. I WAS LIVING FOR 22 YEARS IN NJ AND I WAS AFRAID. I MADE HIS DREAM COME TRUE AND I MADE HIM HAPPY TOO. WHEN HE DIED ON DECEMBER 17, 2010 I ASKED GOD "WHY" I WAS GOING THROUGH ALL THOSE THINGS, I WAS BY MYSELF AND TOTALLY LONELY WITH 2 DOGS, I FELT PUNISHED AND CONFUSED AND ASKED GOD AGAIN AND AGAIN "WHY?". WAITING FOR AN ANSWER... MY MOM CAME TO VISIT ME FROM NJ AND WHILE WE BOTH WERE WALKING THE DOGS INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD... I SAW COUPLE OF THE ELDERS PASSING BY IN A BICYCLE, AND ASKED THEM...ARE YOU MORMONS? WE WEREN'T ALLOWED TO TALK TO THEM BEFORE, BECAUSE FOR 45 YEARS, WE WERE JEHOVA'S WITNESSES. THE ELDERS MADE A U-TURN. THEY ASKED ME IF I WANTED THEM TO VISIT ME AND I SAID : YES!. MOM DIDN'T LIKE IT! BUT, I TOLD HER THAT "WE DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO LOOSE!!. IT WAS AN ANSWER FROM THE CELESTIAL FATHER TO ALL MY PRAYERS AND I REALIZED THAT THEN I REALIZED HE WAS BLESSING ME, CARRYING ME ALL THE JOURNEY!

How I live my faith

MY MOM AND I GOT BAPTIZED ON DECEMBER 2ND, 2011 AND LIVED HAPPYLY EVER AFTER SINCE THEN. WE PRACTICE ALL THE COVENANTS WE MADE WITH GOD, AND LIVE THE LOVE WITH FAITH IN THE GOSPEL FOR THE REST OF OUR LIFES!!!

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Ingrid B Carvajal
A temple is a house of the Lord, a place where we may worship our Heavenly Father and feel of His presence. It is a sacred place where no unclean thing can enter. Because of the importance and sacredness of the temple, a temple recommend is required and is received based on individual worthiness within the church in order to enter its holy walls. The temple is where I go to find answers, to find peace, and to feel the Spirit. We are encouraged to go as often as possible and to attend seeking Spiritual guidance. Inside we perform sacred ordinances for ourselves and more often for others, those who are deceased. God requires that all to make covenants in order to return to His presence and many died without the opportunity to make these covenants. In the temple we perform the ordinances for them in their name giving them the opportunity to reject or accept the ordinance and thus enter into the presence of the Father. The temple is a very sacred and holy place. That's why: I HAVE DECIDED TO GET SEALED AT THE TEMPLE WITH MY HUSBAND WHO PASSED AWAY. SO WE CAN LIVE ETERNALLY TOGETHER AS A COUPLE IN THE CELESTIAL KINGDOM WITH OUR FAMILY! IN THE MEMORY OF MY BELOVED HUSBAND, IVAN ORTIZ ROSADO 10/19/1949 - 12/17/2010 I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO MUCH!!! ... INGRID B CARVAJAL-ORTIZ Show more Show less
