About Me

I'm 19, I really like learning new things, and how to build things. Science is the best! Love Soccer but stink at Basketball! I know Spanish & English... trying to learn Portuguese...

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I'm Mormon, because I know how the Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ and you can fell the Spirit and what God want's you to hear.These couple of weeks I've been able to understand more of my religion and how its blessed me. I've come to know that God loves us and send his only begotten son, Jesus Christ to the earth, from the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Can't really explain why I'm Mormon, just that I took that step of Faith, and wanted to learn more about God and what He has in store in my life. I've been able to know and feel the love of God in my life and how it can bless others if they put their part. I believe that its through the principles that we learn in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, help us to live a better life and be stronger against the adversary. And from the Book of Mormon and the Bible, we are able to understand the gospel of Jesus Christ that He established since the creation of men. This is how I felt the love of God in my life, as I search and applied the things that I've learned in my life which has blessed me. That's why I'm Mormon!

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by trying to apply the teaching of Jesus Christ in my every day actions. I try to be what the Savior wants me to be. I try to remember all the things that he has done to me and all the sacrifice as well. One of the things that I've come to know on how I can grow and live my faith is by studying the scriptures and trying to apply it unto my own life. As well trying to follow that example that the Savior left us, on how he was obedient, and willing to die for us, to pay for our sins. Its not easy but its possible, just got to remember on the words of the Savior and of the people which he has called, by authority, which are his prophets and apostles. There might be times, that you'll feel inadequate and discourage, but that's the adversary trying to put you down and make you feel that God doesn't care for you. But God does care and I know that, and that how I live my faith, by constantly nourishing my spirit with the words of God and by applying them into my life.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Josue Alvarado
As written in the cover page, the Book of Mormon, is a testament of Jesus Christ, that testifies of his sacrifice and atonment towards mankind. I goes side by side with the Holy Bible in testifying of Christ and what our Father in Heaven wants for us and in store aswell. The Book of Mormon was written 600 years before the birth of Jesus Christ by ancient prophets in the American Continent. These prophet aswell shared their testimony of the Saviour as the ones in the Bible and aswell preached by the guidence of the Holy Spirit. As written in the Bible, the inhabitants that were living in America were part of the House of Israel that was lost and scattered across the Earth. The Book of Mormon testifies of the Saviour Jesus Christ appears to the inhabitants in America after his resurrection in the tomb, because of what he said in the Bible, that he need to visit sheep that were not from this realm. The Book of Mormon helps us and guides us on how to find if its true or not at the end and it promises for those who commit to its counsel, the Spirit will testify of its true. Show more Show less
