Hi I'm Anibal Salinas

I'm a missionary burning in Las Vegas, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I Grew up in chile and I have been In so many places that I don't remember, I had never visited U.S before, but I recieved my calling to serve in nevada las vegas mission, so, I guess that the Lord want me to see more places and meet more people, I really love to talk with people and to help them because I feel that everyone else has a lot of things to teach me. I went to college and I want to study again, but I know that with the guidance of the Lord I can decide easily. I love the opportunity to see and live different realities and to know what makes me so happy, and of course, share it with more people.

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon, at the beginning because my parents taught me, but, they never forced me to go to church, I know that it's the church of the Savior that has been restored again because I've recieved an answer, for this reason I am able to be closer to the Savior, in HIS church. Also the importance of family help me to be happier, because the family is important for me, to have the knowledge that Families are together forever help me to understand and have hope to see my family that's dead, this understanding and a lot of more things help me to be happier. I know, by an assurance of my heart, because of the scriptures, and because of the organization of the church, and more than that, because I have an answer from the Spirit himself, that Jesus is the Christ, that he is alive and he gives us revelation nowadays trough a prophet, that helps us to know the will of the Lord in this modern world. I know that we hold the power of god to serve people outside there, and I know that any other church in the world has that same authority and power. I know that President Thomas S. Monson, is the only man in the earth that can say with authority "thus saith the Lord", and I know that the gospel is the power of god into salvation and the answer of all the problems and questions of the world.

How I live my faith

I am a representative of Jesus-christ, and I need to follow his steps, not only to be able to work in the mission, also to be happier. Of course, every single human being is so different, that is what makes the world a place so awesome to live. However, sometimes, we see a lot of hard situations of people, and is so neet to see how the hand of the lord gives assurance and happiness to that people, and also to myself. Very often I see how we have so many questions about things that are hard to understand, but, I think that is a miracle of god to see our questions answered in a way that makes sense. I love to share my knowledge of myself with people and I love to hear about them, and to see how god helps us to grow up toghether and with him to "become one" I really think that to understand the lord, we have first to understand ourselves, and our brothers and sisters and I am very grateful for the great blessing that I have to meet all this great people and to see their realities and feel their feelings and really, REALLY, love them, with all that they have, this is, I feel, my calling from the lord, to serve, love and know his sheep. It's simple, follow the lord and your life will improve!!

What is the priesthood?

Anibal Salinas
The Priesthood is the authority to act in god's name. Every male member of the church have the opportunity to hold this authority that gives us the blessing to serve others, performing ordinances like baptism, leading congregations and blessing those who are sick. In fact, we can say that the priesthood is the authority to sacrifice ourselves and to bless and serve others in god's name, as member of the church, we have some requirements that limits the way that we serve, but most likely, we serve with love, gentleness and kindness, and we consider to serve others as an honro that God and Jesus-Christ is giving us and we hold this authority to serve in any way possible Show more Show less
