Jaime (James Charles Armstrong IV) is currently serving a Church Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the official name of the religion commonly called the Mormon Church. We believe first and foremost that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God.
Missionaries don’t “just happen”. They are taught and raised by God loving and missionary oriented parents. It all starts at home. Children learn from their parents long before they are old enough to understand what the future holds for them. This is probably the most critical time “future” missionaries go through. Because it’s then, during their formative years, that they either learn (or not) from mom and dad. If mom and dad don’t care, they will learn not to care. If mom and dad don’t embrace the truthfulness of the Gospel, they won’t either. If mom and dad don’t stress the importance of going on a mission during those youthful years, it will never happen. Because our children learn more by “what they see you do” then by “what they hear you say” (as they grow and develop) the responsibility to set good examples, as parents, is paramount if a missionary is to be the “end product”.

Jesus Christ, Our Savior
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God. He is our Redeemer. The Holy Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ’s mother was Mary, His father on earth was Joseph, that He was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth, and labored with Joseph as a carpenter. When he turned 30, He began a three-year ministry of teaching, blessing, and healing the people of the Holy Land. He also organized His Church and gave His apostles “power and authority” (Luke 9:1) to assist in His work.
But what do we mean when we say He is the Savior of the world? The Redeemer? Each of these titles point to the truth that Jesus Christ is the only way by which we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. Jesus suffered and was crucified for the sins of the world, giving each of God’s children the gift of repentance and forgiveness. Only by His mercy and grace can anyone be saved. His subsequent resurrection prepared the way for every person to overcome physical death as well. These events are called the Atonement. In short, Jesus Christ saves us from sin and death. For that, he is very literally our Savior and Redeemer. In the future Jesus Christ will return to reign on earth in peace for a thousand years. Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and He will be our Lord forever.
