Hi I'm Carlos Rameses Alejandro

I grew up in Texas.I am going on a mission to Santa Ana, El Salvador. I'm a Mormon.I know it.I live it.I love it.

About Me

I like to play football, basketball, go swimming, and target practice. I like to hang out with friends. I like to read and play video games. I have graduated high school, now going on a mission, and will return to study in Medical Field.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member because I truly believe in all that is taught. I have seen miracles happen because of my faith. This helps me continue to follow his gospel. I have seen people healed through faith and the power of the priesthood. People who were declared dying by doctors healed. I know that this church is true. I know the Book of Mormon and the Bible both testify of Jesus Christ. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet and that he is given directions by God to direct his church. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet sent to restore the gospel to the Earth. I know Jesus Christ died for us so that we could be forgiven of our sins. I know our Heavenly Father loves us and knows us individually. I know that our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy and that is why he made a way for us to return to live with him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching classes at church to Youth and children. I pray and read my scriptures. I go to the temple when I can. I help set up church activities and organize them. I do lots of service.

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

Carlos Rameses Alejandro
The Atonement of Jesus Christ was when he suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane which caused him to bleed from every pore for our sins. He was later crucified and even as suffered this painful death, he again felt the weight of our sins. He did this so that we would not have to suffer as he did. It is also necessary to be able to repent of our sins and be able to go back to live with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
