Hi I'm Pete

I am a peculiar person. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like art. I am an only child. I am Mexican-American. Born in Texas and will die in Texas.

Why I am a Mormon

My Grandfather was baptized into the lds church while living in Mexico. My mom was nine years old at the time. From my mother I was able to learn at a very young age the power that the prayer has in our lives. Through prayer I have come to know that my Savior loves me and this is his church.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary in the United States. Missionaries teach people about our church. Then, invite them to ask God (through prayer) if what has been taught is true. I know God answers prayers. He has answered mine. I know the Book of Mormon is true. Jesus Christ is my Savior and yours, too. I am grateful for the missionaries who sacrifed two years of their lives to teach my family. Through my service as a missionary and living my faith for the rest of my life, I hope to return to God what he gave to my grandfather many years ago.

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Pete
The purpose of the Apostles is to receive instruction from God for the church. With the death of Judas they had to find someone to replace him, they were guided to Matthias. The New Testament consists of many letters written by these men to members of the church. In these letters they correct false doctrine. With the rejection and deaths of the Apostles false doctrine were taught more and more. The organization of the church has been restored and with it the true doctrines of Christ. Show more Show less

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

Pete
Moroni 6:9 And their meetings were conducted by the church after the manner of the workings of the Spirit, and by the power of the Holy Ghost; for as the power of the Holy Ghost led them whether to preach, or to exhort, or to pray, or to supplicate, or to sing, even so it was done. The services are very organized. Speakers are selected in advance from members of the congregation. As a missionary church we would like it if everyone worshiped with us. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Pete
2 Nephi 5:27 "And it came to pass that we lived after the manner of happiness." we believe that keeping the commandments really does bring happiness. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Pete
Being a member of the church is awesome. It's challenging. This challenge helps you grow. Which was the whole purpose of the "primitive church" Ephesians 4:12 "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:" Show more Show less
