More Honduran Adventures!

Posting more random pictures  of my adventures in Honduras while serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 

But first, and more important, is a message about our Savior, Jesus Christ and His gospel.
What does it mean to be more Christ-like?
"No other single influence has had so great an impact on this earth as the life of Jesus the Christ.  We cannot conceive of our lives without his teachings.  Without him we would be lost in a mirage of beliefs and worships, born in fear and darkness where the sensual and materialistic hold sway.  We are far short of the goal he has set for us, but we must never lose sight of it; nor must we forget that our great climb toward the light, toward perfection, would not be possible except for his teachings, his life, his death, and his resurrection."
"...We must learn and learn again that only through accepting and living the gospel of love as taught by the Master and only through doing his will can we break the bonds of ignorance and doubt that bind us.  We must learn this simple glorious truth so that we can experience the sweet joys of the spirit now and eternally.  We must lose ourselves in doing his will.  We must place him first in our lives."    (Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson)
