Hi I'm Edward Martinez

I am the first convert in my family. I am a full-time missionary. I am interested in peoples' lives. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary in the greatest mission in the world, the Texas Houston South Mission! I am the first in my family to convert to the true church and the first to serve a misson. I am a funny , outgoing personalilty. I embrance the noises and busyness of the world. I love to be outdoors and being around large crowds. I am a music listener, an action junky, and love to be around inspiring people who have goals in life. One thing that has changed me for the better to understand all that goes on this planet is: The restored gospel of Jesus Christ , which puts the puzzle altogether. It helped me answer all my questions that once deeply concerned me. I don't worry anymore. I chanllege everyone out there who will read this; to go out and find what you are looking for through the gospel of Jesus Christ and in HIs restored church. That is...The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I promise you that you'll find what you are looking for through diligent prayer and meeting with missionaries like us.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon is not a question for me anymore than why I want to live in this life with my love ones. At the age of eighteen years old, I was in a quest to find why am I not feeling fulfilled in my life. I wasn't happy with the direction I was pursuing in life. I thought to myself; " there has to be more in life than knowing I have to have an education and attain a great career to make it in this compititive world I live in. " After praying for the answers I was looking for and asking my Heavenly Father of what church to join ( very much like Joesph Smith's question), He answered my humble prayer in just a few days. When I was steady to listen to the " still small voice" I got my answer through a Mormon Messages commercial! Yea, a commercial. I had requested a " Joy to the World" video and from that on my life changed. My Christmas present came to me to rescue me from my troubled heart. I decided to be baptized four weeks later after much much praying to know if Joesph Smith and the Book of Mormon is true. The restored gospel can heal every wound if you let it. The restored Church of our Savior is real! It gives me the peace I need in this challenging life. Dear you to seek out for it- you won't be disappointed. I promise.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving a full-time mission in the greatest mission in the world! The Texas Houston South Mission! By leaving my only Beloved grandmother from her death bed I think I am really living my faith. Each day I know the Lord is shaping me to what He wants me to be as I am obedient to His commandments. This is no greater gift than being the disciple He wants me to be.
