Hi I'm Elder Eric Proctor

Hey my name's Elder Proctor! I'm a Mormon and I love it :) Right now I am in Oaxaca, Mexico serving my Savior Jesus Christ!

About Me

So I'm LDS and I have been called by a prophet of God to serve my Lord Jesus Christ and preach repentance in His name to the people of Oaxaca Mexico! I have been on my mission a little over 10 months now and I'm loving it! There is nothing else I would rather do with my Life. I am currently serving in the city Ixtepec. I love serving the people here and seeing the change take place in their lives and Holy Ghost witnesses unto them that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true and living church of our Savior and redeemer Jesus the Christ and that His Gospel as restored through His Servant Joseph Smith and living prophets is the only way to repent of their sins and experience true peace, joy, and happiness in this life! There is no greater work than the work of salvation and no better time to be laboring in it! Now is the time to hasten this great and marvelous work! For Behold a Great and Marvelous work has already come forth among the children of men and has spread to the far corners of the earth! I know without a doubt in my mind that this is the Church of Jesus Christ and that he soon cometh.We must prepare the world for His coming. There is no greater work and we have all been called by a living prophet to hasten it. I encourage each and every person who sees my profile to pray to know what you can do to serve your Lord. And for those who have not experienced the joy of membership in this amazing Church find out what it's all about!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this is the Church of Jesus Christ. How do I know that you ask?? Well I'm glad you asked! I was born into the church and raised by amazing parents who taught me the ways of the Lord. I have read the Book of Mormon and the Bible and I have studied for years the Doctrines of Christ. But more than anything else I have spoken to my Father in Heaven and asked Him time and time again if this church is true. And without fail He has told me every time that this Church is not only the correct, but the only path for me. I am a mormon because God Himself has told me that this is His only true church and that Joseph Smith was his prophet and that today Thomas S. Monson is His prophet, seer, and revelator. Here to prepare the world for the Second Coming of Christ!

How I live my faith

I serve the Lord with all of my heart, all of my might, and all of my strength! I am a representative of Christ in Oaxaca Mexico! I invite all people unto Christ by helping them to recieve the Restored Gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His atonement, faith, repentance, baptism, recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end! For behold this is the way the truth and the light! This is the Gosple of Jesus Christ and the only way we can find eternal peace and joy!

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

Elder Eric Proctor
One of my Favorite scriptures about this topic is found in the Book of Mormon. Alma Chapter 7. Here in this chapter it helps us understand that not only did Jesus Christ pay the price for our sins, but He also suffered every pain and affliction we could possibly imagine. Why? Just so that He could know how to comfort us when we are in need! Who could possibly love us more than that? The Atonement is Christ's victory over sin and death that made possible our salvation. Without this great sacrifice we would never be able to make it back to our Father in Heaven (God). The reason this sacrifice was necessary Jesus explains in 3 Nephi 27 when He tells us that nothing impure can enter into God's rest. And therefore nothing will enter God's rest because no one is naturally perfect. But He goes on to say that if we follow His Gospel by having faith in Him, Repenting of our Sins, being baptized, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and the enduring to the end He will wash our sins clean through His sacrifice (because if we remember He already paid the price for those sins) and thanks to Him we will be innocent and worthy to enter into God's rest. The Atonement of Christ is the single most important aspect of every one of our lives and it is worthy of all we can do to utilize this great gift. There is also another aspect of the Atonement. It does not only help us become clean. But through this great power, Christ will give us the power to become perfect. Show more Show less
