Hi I'm Daniel Hernandez

I'm a United States Marine, a cellist, a missionary, a brother, a uncle, a friend, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am from Las Vegas Nevada. I am in the United States Marine Corps. I also play the cello. I am the second youngest of 7 that I grew up with. My real mother and step father are members of the church. I love to go running, biking, and I think any kind of sport. I love being outside and enjoying the out doors.

Why I am a Mormon

 Missionaries always tried to talk to my family for about four years. Finally one day we decided to listen to what they had to say. Turns out that my family and I were baptized. For some reason I had that desire to be baptized, but I wasn't sure on exactly the importance of it. I just knew I wanted to. For a little while I was begining to think that I made a wrong decission and that I should have never gone through with it. I then took it to the Book of Mormon and read it and that's when I knew that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints had the fulness of the Gospel.. 

How I live my faith

I start my day with a prayer as soon as I wake up. Thanking my Heavenly Father for another day to live for. I then study my scriptures. I learn so much by doing that. Through that I recieve a greater understanding about my savior, Jesus Christ. And the effects of that is having more happiness and love in my life. Even through all of lifes challenges. And I guarantnee any one that does that will find more happiness in this life. Another way that I live my faith is by music. Music is something that can be used to touch someones life. Now I'm not the best speaker, but when I play the cello for others that is one of the best ways I can let some one know that there is a God and that He really does love us all and that He has a plan for ALL of his children. Music is one of my favorite ways to worship God and to communicate with others. I try to do all I can every day to be more like Christ. I know I'm not perfect, but every day I do try and learn from the mistakes that I make and move on. I learned so much that even when we make mistakes and we know that God has forgiven us, we have to learn how to forgive us. And by doing that we learn a little more how the Atonement works.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Daniel Hernandez
Mormon missionaries preselyte because they came to know that the Gospel is true. And they want to share it with every one. They know that the Gospel blesses families and gives so much hope and happiness and they want people to know that. They do all they can to respect other peoples' freedom of choice. And another reason is because they either want to serve our Heavenly Father or His children, but the way you serve God is by serving his children. And all that the missionaries want to do is serve others, either by service or teaching them the Gospel. Show more Show less
