Families can be Together Forever

Fernando, Carolina and baby Abner were first to be taught and blessed with a knowledge of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Elder Emery and Elder Checketts were involved with this conversion process in April of 2008. A year later and probably a half dozen missionaries later....Bernaisa, the oldest sister joined, then Daniel the father. Not long after Julisa and on Friday, May 15th, Margarita the mother was baptized by Elder Wille. It has been such a rewarding experience to share with each of them our testimonies of the Plan of Salvation and the joy that can come to families as they embrace the principles and ordinances of the gospel. Fernando is now serving as a counselor in the Bishopric and Carolina, a counselor in the Relief Society. The Loma Bonita ward will be blessed as the Torres family continues to grow and share their testimony with other family members and friends.

Wow, what an incredible conversion story which proves when the 3 points from Pres. Hinckley are utilized great leaders are born and nurtured in the gospel. Beautiful family!
