Hi I'm Juan Carlos Valverde

I'm a Happy returned missionary. I served in Ecuador Quito mission 1994- 1996 under President Alberth Farnsworth.

About Me

I am a returned missionary I served in Ecuador Quito mission 1994-1996 under President Alberth Farnsworth. When you serve as a missionary, it helps you forget about yoursel and care more for others, I am now happily married, the mission helped me learn about others. I love God and his gospel I am endlessly grateful to him for sending us a prophet to guide us in these later days, I thank him for every blessing bestowed by his bountius hand, I feel it a pleasure to serve him and love to obey his commandments

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because only by being a Mormon I am able to be happy, I have learnt that God has prepared a plan for us to be happy. I know this is his church, the gospel and the priesthood have now been restored back to earth through Joseph Smith. I have no doubt at all. God wants all of us to be happy

How I live my faith

In my ward I have a responsibility which is to teach others about the Gospel, I think that God is giving this opportunity because he wants me to learn more and he also wants me to be a better human being, this responsibility helps me be more humble

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Not at all we are ALL sons and daughters of the same God, since God is a King that means that we are princes and princesses Show more Show less
