Hi I'm Corde
I am a very normal guy if you ask me. I love to have fun and really enjoy life. I love absolutely anything that has to do with sports, and if you ask me what my favorite tv show is I will tell you that it is Sportscenter on ESPN. I grew up in a very good family. I have one older sister and two younger brothers. With this family I have been able to visit almost all of the United States and have seen the many bueaties of the earth. I love to be out doors as well and I love manual labor. I don´t know it is, but when i get my hands dirty, working hard under the sun. I just feel good! You know what I mean? Right now for almost the last two years of my life I have been in the Yucatan Peninsula teaching the Mexican people the Restored Gospel. I have been able to learn the spanish language and I have fallen in the love with the people. I really enjoy the Mexican culture and especially the way they cook. I have been able to see and meet many people who have helped me become the person I am today. I am not a very shy guy and I love to make new friends. I´m very easy to get along with because I am pretty chill. I love to laugh and whenever a challenge presents itself I am more than willing overcome it and learn how I can improve as a person. Let´s just say my life motto literally is: Go big or go home! I always go big!
Why I am a Mormon
Well I was lucky enough to be born in a family where the mormon beliefs were already taught. As a young boy and in my youth I always felt that the Mormon faith was correct because it always made sense to me. When I went to church and was taught all the answers to my questions I just felt that was I was taught was correct and never really questioned its truthfulness. I guess you could say I went on logic. But as I grew older I was able to see that I couldn´t continue nor teach other people with only logic. I needed a testimony from the only Being that could give it to me. Through many prayers and study I have been able to recieve a spiritual testimony from the Holy Ghost. The only person that can tell us the spiritual truths. Now I can say that I am not Mormon only because it makes sense to me, but becuase I know without a doubt that God has answered my prayers and through His Holy Spirit made me feel that this is the only church on earth that will bring me back to Him. I am also a Mormon because this faith explains the plan that God has for us so perfectly. The Plan of Salvation helps me know where I came from, why I am here, and where can I go after this life. Having this knowledge has given me more hope in this life. Because I now know that some day I have the opportunity if I do every God has commanded to live with my loved ones in a state of never ending happiness. This is the promise He has for us and their is no greater goal that I want to complete. I know that one day we will be able to live with our Savior and Father again for all eternidad.
How I live my faith
Like I said earlier, I am serving a full time mission in Mexico right now as an official representative. For the last two years I have been teaching and testifying to people how they can improve their lives by only accepting the true doctrine of Christ and live the commandments that He has taught us. I am trying to show people that really our purpose here in life is to enjoy the experience and learn how we can return to our Father´s presence. I know that in order to live our life the happiest we have to follow the commandments that God has given us because He is our loving Heavenly Father and knows what it is that a person really needs in order to be happy!
