Mexico Temple

     Hello Everyone,

     This past week has been pretty good. Yesterday we attended the Broadcast of the Mexico City, Mexico Temple. They broadcasted it all over Mexico. It was such a wonderful experience!! We heard talks by the new Temple President and his wife, Elder Benjamin de Hoyos who is President of the
Mexico Area Presidency, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and President Henry B. Eyring who is the First counselor of the First Presidency. It was marvelous!! The main theme was about temples and how the church here in Mexico has grown enourmously in over the past few decades. 
     At the same time as the re-dedication of the temple, in this mission, us as missionaries are re-dedicating ourselves to the Lord. As his representatives, we need to REPRESENT the Savior. By developing attributes of Christ, repenting, and coming unto him, we can do it! We can be who we want to be, who he wants us to be, and who we NEED to be! 
      We also had a special conference today with President Kirkham about the Book of Mormon and it being the keystone of our religion. What a privilege it is to help these people recieve the Book of Mormon. A record of their ancestors, written especially for them, and for us too! Written, and saved for these Latter Days to come forth in the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times. So that we may know to what source to look for the remision of our sins. The fulness of the gospel has been restored through the Book of Mormon, and I know its true!! Those of you who have not recieved a testimony of the BOM, I extend an invitation. Read the book of mormon, ponder it in your hearts, and ask God the Eternal Father. 
     I promise that anyone who does that with a sincere desire to know if its true, will receive an answer by the power of the Holy Ghost. I know its true by this same power!! God lives and he loves each and every one of us. He wants us all to return back to him. He has given us the BOM to be guided back to his presence! 
      I love you all and may you have a safe, spiritually filled week!

Love,  Elder Strate
