Hi I'm Daniel Martinez

I'm a Mormon. and a part time Elder for my ward in Topeka, KS

About Me

Well there is a few thing to say about me. I was never a Mormon tell I meet the Elder at a family member house. and they were talk to her for a few min. and the got done with there talk. They ask if they can do a hymn for me. I said sure. and they Song a great hymn to me it is called " I Stand All Amazed ". With in the 3rd part of the song it was in my hreat. And I know it was right. I meet with the Elder's and join the church with in 8 week's. And I meet so many poeple in my ward. I have been to a Family ward, YSA ward, and then back to my family ward. I have seen so many temple in my life. and just being around them you feel the love that the lord has for us. I have meet so many church people like Elder Bednar, Elder Scott. I have seen there love they have for all of us...

Why I am a Mormon

Why.. I have in my hreat I think this is the church that was start from the Lord and pass to Joseph Simth. There are so many reason why i'm mormon. I think it is due to the love I have seen in the church. In my family they are not mormon but just me. I know when I meet a young lady. I know that we will be together forever. I have join the Navuoo Pageant ( must see ). You will see the love there is there to.. but when you are by the temple. you will be and see the love there is. Kansas City is going to have a temple and it is going so fast.. I don't know when it will be done. but I know love is so much in the church if you are gone for a week they call and say are you ok. but when you go in the door.. look out for opening arms. they are all hug people. but they do it for care. I know it is the best church I seen in it in people eyes. and I know it is true. and I know there is love at home. I know the Joseph Simth was seen by the lord. I know the Lord die for us. I know that church is true... And I say this in the name of are lord aman.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as going to church and doing what the lord want me to do. I know my family are not part of my faith but that is ok. I stay on the path to all right. I have been push a few time's in life. I think as My faith has got so big. I dont let people make me feel bad. I know the lord is walking right beside me all the time. and when i'm drive some of the time I look up at the sun and think one day I will see him and I will thank him for my faith in him. To this day. I know that I'm doing the best I can. as a YSA rap for my ward is the best time for me to meet people my age and show them this is the best church there is in life.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Daniel Martinez
Well I know that when I pay for my tithing it help's out our brother and sister go on there mission. and it help to people that are in need like for Tokyo Earthquake, Joplin Tornado. I know for fact the frist time I pay for my tithing I was in need of helping for a job and I find one that night. I was working at a candy place here in Topeka,KS. It show me that the lord help's out in many way's. I don't know how. but I thank him all day and all night for that. I have seen it in people eye's that need help. It help's us put new temple's out. I have seen it help out a friend that need to go to school that did not have funds to go to school and the church help him out. I Know all this to be right. I know that the lord is with us all the time. He has never gave up on us. I know all this to true in my hreat with in my bones. and I love this church. I know I can see my family for time and forever. I say this in the name of the lord Jesus Christ. Amen Show more Show less
