Hi I'm Sebastian

I'm a Mormon living in Ecuador. I love, help, lift and inspire people all around me by being a true friend.

About Me

I am a single young man. Like others, I go to college and study law. I have always enjoyed playing the piano, singing and listening to classical music. Sports are an important part of my life and spending quality and quantity of time with my family and friends is always something I look forward to. I love reading the Scriptures and Geography and instructive and educative books. I like ceramics and hand work a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

God has always been my light and my inspiration in life and I have felt His love for me always. I am blessed to be part of his Church. A friend from the USA shared the gospel to me by inviting me near Christmas time, to ask for a free Book of Mormon online at: lds.org , when I was 19. I did that and a few weeks later I was visited by the missionaries. I was not at home, but they left a message with the book and a phone number. I called and soon after, I was tought by them about God, His Plan of Happiness for me and about the Restoration of the Gospel by the Prophet Joseph Smith. I knew their message was true and wanted to follow the Savior's Example; I needed a baptism in His True Church, and so I was baptized.

How I live my faith

Going to the Church every Sunday and having the chance and privilege to help God in His Work during the day is truly a blessing. I have to chance to do member missionary work and invite others to come unto Christ, by using mormon.org. I have the chance sometimes to be a teacher and strengthen the faith of members of the Church. I have also been a ward missionary, and have helped the full time missionaries find people to teach. It has always been an innerly rewarding and happy experience to me.

Who are the Mormons?
