Hi I'm Patricio Gonzalez

I met the missionaries while I was at university, now I'm an engineer and a happy father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love photography, chess, traveling and to learn new things when I have some time In my work I do many things, from software development to team leadership, research and some consulting

Why I am a Mormon

The first time I met the missionaries they started to talk about Jesus in America, it was something so natural that I started to learn more about the church. I was searching some truth in a wide range of religions and philosophies but then reading the Book of Mormon everything was so clear that the only fear I had to join the church was about being able to be a bit more like Jesus, but I loved the idea of having an eternal family. The Spirit made me feel so clear that the church was true that I decided to be a member. Now I'm a happy father and even when things are difficult I realize how blessed I am for each single thing God have given me I'm not even closer to be as Jesus, but I love the way he cares for me and for my family

How I live my faith

At church I have served in several callings, teaching the gospel to kids from 12 to 17 and helping in several other organizations. I've also helped the missionaries and I would love to serve as a senior missionary with my wife some day

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Patricio Gonzalez
That's a really important question We need a Savior because this life is just a temporary state and due to human nature everybody is subject to do mistakes - depending on the magnitude of the mistakes it may cause pain to ourselves only or to many others, in that line some mistakes cannot be corrected or repaired, many severe sins cannot be amended. But if somebody acts as a mediator between the person who did the mistake and the offended part then things may me repaired The Lord Jesus Christ acts as the main and only mediator for all mankind, no one else has suffered all things and given his own life to save all mankind, no one else has defeated death and resurrected by himself So everybody can get close to Jesus, repent and he will heal any wound and ultimately he gives all mankind the opportunity to be healed from mistakes and from being eternally separated from God's presence Show more Show less
