Hi I'm Chris
Well to start off I was born in Mesa Arizona. Its very hot out there. I was actually born on a day where it was more then 130 degrees! I graduated from High School and now I'm almost 21 and biking around in the heat of Florida trying to help people the best I can... Some of my intrest and hobbies is I love to draw, doodle, sketch, paint, and create. Usually if I have a paper and pencil I'll just habitually be doodling. I love doing it. I'm pretty good at drawing anime, but i can draw other stuff too. Sports-wise I like to play volliball the most, just cause its a team sport, but everyone has to participate at some point. Musically I been trying to learn how to play the piano I know how to play a couple hymns like "Sweet hour of prayer" and I love to sing even though I'm awful at it. My favorite hymn would hafto to be "Tengo gozo en mi alma hoy" but just in spanish just cause spanish is awesome. Because I'm a spanish missionary I hafto speak spanish. Even though I might look like I already knew it since I was a kid. My parents actually never spoke it So I been learning out here. But I have blood from Spain and Mexico. I looooove the spanish culture by the way and my favorite type of food is spanish food. chinese is my second food Even though I know two languages I studied alittle bit of japanese in high school, and I hope to dedicate more time into it when I'm home. I hope to get a job in either computers or being a cartoonist. and will start college when i get back from my mission. Well I think thats alot about me, thanks for reading!!
Why I am a Mormon
Well I was born into the church and at first I didn't know much about it. My family wasn't really active in the church. But when I went to high school I was intrested in learning more. So I decided to read the book of mormon. a book that talks about God's dealings with the people in america. After reading the book of Mormon I got down on my knees and prayed. and i recieved a solid testimony that the book was inspired scriptures. Its given me so much joy that I want others to feel that happiness too.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
When i first picked up the book I didn't know much about Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ. My family didn't go to church much, I heard alot about them but I didn't know my purpose here. Since I read the book of Mormon I have learned alot about God's love for the ancient americans here, and also for his love for me personally. God wants whats best for us so he sent Jesus Christ to help us out to make sure we can get up when we fall. Hes a God of Justice and also Mercy. I learned about his plan and here our being here has a purpose and it wasn't an accident or the result of Adam's mistake. But that He loves us so much to give us the oppurtunity to live here today. and how living here is a big blessing
How I live my faith
Because I'm a missionary I live my faith by teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ everyday and by serving people in many diffrent ways. mowing yards, cleaning, killing giant spiders
