Hi I'm Felix

I'm a Latter Day Saint and Love My Church.

About Me

I live in Colorado. I love my church and wish my life wasn't so busy right now so I could be more involved. My passions are my faith, church, family, friends, music, sports, work I am currently working on my diploma in elementry education. I love being around children, I believe that on of the best sounds in life is the sound of a child's voice and a child's laugh I find it so relaxing to hear. I am easy going and have a job that I love doing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter Day Saint because I belive the Church of Jesus Christ is the only true church. Here is my testimony. In September of 2009 I was involved in a conversation with a now close friend about church and religion and what we both believed in. After the conversation she invited me to go to church with her, without hesitation I said yes. Now before I converted I had not been to church since I was 16 years old. Continuing on that sunday came and I met her at church. The church she attendeds is a spanish ward. Now I am from a latino backround but still am in the process of learning spanish. We first attended Sacrament meeting and classes followed. I was interested to see what the classes were about. This was new to me I was raised Catholic. Everyone I met was so friendly and assited me with understanding what was being said. After church was finished I was walking out with my friend and two of her children. She asked what I thought? I replied this feels wonderful I haven"t felt like this ever. I felt like a had a stronger connection with Heavenly Father. I though it was kind of strange I didn't really understand what we had talked about since it was a spanish ward but I wanted to learn more. So over the next couple weeks I proceeded to attend church with my friend. I was then introduced to missionaries that were from a ward closer to my place. So I had started attending church there. Again I met some of the nicest people. the end of October came and I was invited to my friends house to have dinner with her family and the missionaries from her ward. I had just turned onto the street where she lived and I recieved a call from my sister stating that my mom had stop breathing and she needed me to get to her house as soon as I could. I called my friend to let her know what was going on and she told me to just let her know what was going on and that she was there if I needed anything. I went to my parents house and the paramedics were there they said she was still breathing but needed to go to the emergency room because she was breathing only 6 breaths per minute and she was supposed to be breathing between 18-21 breaths per minute. The doctor ran some tests and told us that she had the H1N1 virus and phnemonia in both lungs and her chance of survival was 50/50. Now this was not good at all because a year prior my mom had went to the hospital for trouble breathing and was told she could no longer owrk and would have to be on oxygen the rest of her life. So 3 weeks had passed I had not been attending church or going to any of my classes. My routine was to go to work,sleep for a couple hours then got to the hospital. I was taken by surprise while this was going on a recieved a call from the missionaries asking how everythignwas going and if they could do anything to help. I was so touched for their concern about me and my family.On the friday of the third week the doctor had told my family and myself that if my mom didn't improve by sunday then they would have to perform a trichotomy. So I had decided to do something I had not done since I was little and that was pray. On that sunday I recieved a call from my brother saying that they had takin the venilator out and my mom would be moved to a different room on moday and discharged that friday or following monday. I was so happy I called my friend and told her the news I had just recieved. My mom was discharged that friday. A couple weeks had gone by and my friend had asked me if she could bring some the sister missionaries over to talk with me, I told her I would love that. I met with sister king and castro twice that week. On their second visit they offered me an invitation to be baptised. I replied quickly this one thing I did not need to think about I had already knew what my anwser was. I preceeded to meet with the missionaries from the ward I would be attending. It was a busy 2 weeks because I had promised sister king that I would be baptised prior to her going home from her mission. January 26, 2010 came and this is where all of the work we had been doing paid off. I was baptised and the feeling I had that night was something I will never feel again. I knew that I had made the right choice. This is my testimony and it continues to grow everyday. I believe that Joesph Smith is a prophet. And I say this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church on sundays, praying everyday and welcoming the gospel and spirit into my life when ever I get the chance to.
