Hi I'm Bernardo

I love soccer. My family means the world to me. I love being a missionary and I know I am called of God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently started a full time mission for the LDS Church and am loving every second of it. Before that, I was a college student and really enjoyed learning about other people and their cultures. I consider myself a lifelong student. I love soccer and skateboarding, even though I'm not very good at the second one ;)

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born into the LDS faith. My mom was converted when she was a teen and has been the main influence of who I am today. Serving a mission makes me realize even more that this is the Church of Jesus Christ, and that his authority and organization have been restored to its original state. Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world, He died for you and me and has given us the example of what to do in life. No other person could pay the price of sin. I add my testimony to Joseph Smith's and Sidney Rigdon's when they proclaimed, " And now, after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony, last of all, which we give of him: That he lives!" (D&C 76:22)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going about my missionary calling with a smile and a good spirit. I enjoy teaching others about Jesus Christ and how He can help them overcome their weaknesses. I exercise my faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ by praying daily, often, various times during the day. All I have to say is that prayer works! :) Praying and letting my Father in Heaven know how I'm feeling gives me hope for the future. It gives me hope and an assurance that I'm not alone.
