Hi I'm Mauro

I like anything to do with cars. I love NASCAR, soccer, mountain biking, and fishing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ever since I can remember I've always been into cars. My parents tell me stories of when I was a little boy, always playing with toy cars. I love the sound of a V8, the look of a Ferrari, the smell of raw power mixed with exhaust, being pinned to the back of a seat in a powerful car as you step on the gas pedal. I love working on cars too. I'm working on my own project car. Getting grease and oil in between my fingernails is one of my favorite hobbies. I guess you can also say that soccer is in my blood. It's my heritage! I love spending countless hours with my father cheering on the El Salvadorian national team. Eventhough it seems like they never do too well. Cheering for our favorite players as they juggle the ball down the field and approach the goal and kick the ball into the back of the net. I have recently picked up fishing. I love being out on the water, gathering my thoughts, and enjoying Heavenly Father's creations. I love the birds singing their sweet songs in the trees. Being one with mother nature and enoying the scenery Heavenly Father has prepared for us. Catching a large 6 pound Bass on the end on the line isn't bad either.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon? That's a good question! My story is a little different. I didn't really grow up with a religion, but I guess if you were to say that I belonged to a religion I would say I was Catholic. By that I mean I was baptized Catholic when I was 6, but I never attend Catholic mass. Later in life at age 12 I was introduced to the Mormon church and later baptized, not really having a full understanding of what I was getting into. I always liked the church and had nothing against it. My heart just wasn't into religion. By age 14 I thought I didn't need a religion so I went off and did "my own thing." When I turned 22 I went threw a series of trials in my life that humbled me. I remembered that I was once taught how to pray and thats what I did. I knelt down, right where I was standing and offered a prayer. Before I was done praying I had already received an answer. I knew I had to come back to church. That Heavenly Father wanted me to know he was there for me. That eventhough I was alone he was there with me and that he loves me. I went back to church and feel his love for me everyday. Threwout the years I have studied the teachings of the church and have gained a testimony for myself. I have learned about the restoration, how Heavenly Father still talks and comunicates with all his children. How we, today have a living prophet. Who guides and directs his church. I have studied the teaching of Lehi, Nephi, Jacob, Enos, Alma and all The Book of Mormon prophets and theirs words have bore witness to me of the truthfullness of The Book of Mormon. In short I have done what Moroni asks us to do. Ponder in your heart the teachings and ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are true and I recieved an anwser. The Church is true!

How I live my faith

I know that Christ loves me. With a love thats so great that I cant comprehend. Trying to live up to his expamle is what drives me. I know that I am imperfect and that I can never compare to his example, but living the standards and trying to learn to love like he loves is how I live my faith. I dont fully understand Christ's love for me but I try my hardest to love like he loves. He loves me so much that he gave his life to me and gave his life for me so, that I can live with him again. He loves me unconditionally, even with all of my inperferfections. I have learned to increase my love for poeple and love people for who they are. If Christ can love me with all of my inperfections I can love my great brothers and sisters.
