Hi I'm Nefi

I was born in Mexico, Raised in New York City and now living in Iowa.

About Me

I love having fun!Camping is one of my favorite things to do, being outdoors and seeing what my Heavenly Father created for me to enjoy is amazing. I like to play all sports even tho I'm not very good at most of them, soccer and basketball are my favorite ones. I love music and I love to dance that's a big part of me.I served a full time mission for The Church Of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints and it was amazing. I like meeting new people and making friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a LDS (Mormon) home. Growing up in NYC was hard at times, it is so easy to not choose a right path to follow, but knowing that God loves us,has a plan for us and has put all his truths on this earth again makes it so much easier to follow Him. I know that this church is true beacuse I have prayed and ask my Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I have seen the gospel bless so many lives including mine. The gospel of Jesus Christ is not only a religion but a lifestyle. We invite all to know for themself's by dilegently studying the scriptures and asking God with a sincere Heart and having faith that they will recieve an answer. It is such a blessing to wake up every morning and know that my Heavenly Father has a plan for me, and that if I do what is right one day I may live with Him.

How I live my faith

Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints is great. The way I live my faith is by applying the things I learn into my life. Life itself can be challenging at times, but having the knowledge that my Heavenly Father loves me and is always looking out for me gives me the strength to go on. Faith is something that I constantly try to improve it is through my faith in my Savior that I can make right desicions every day. Living life in a righteous way is something that becomes a part of you and helps you help others on the way.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Nefi
The missionaries are awesome.When they come over you will feel so calm and relax. After a while it will feel like you've known them for a long time. When they come over they talk about how the gospel of Jesus Christ was brought back to this earth in it's fullness, they will answer questions you could've or still have about the bible or maybe just life questions. Missionaries invite you to do things that will help you get closer to God, to know for yourself whats the truth. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Nefi
A testimony is something so special. It is a witness you receive that lets you know that something is true. In this case when members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints share their testimony they speak of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. A testimony that there is a God, that Joseph Smith was called by God to restore the truths to the earth once again. That we know that there is a plan that our Heavenly Father has so that we all have the same opportunity to return and live with him once more. That through the atonement of Jesus Christ we may be saved through faith and obedience. I have a testimony and that is that I know my Heavenly Father love me and that Jesus Christ died so that I one day live with God again. I know that indeed Joseph Smith was a prophet and that through inspiration he restored the Church of Christ one earth. I know that we have a prophet inour days to lead us in the path our Heavenly Father wants us to go. Show more Show less
