Hi I'm Afrodita

I was born in Guatemala, grew up in utah, everyone calls me afro. i love to sing i love to paint , and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in Idaho. I love art, especially drawing and painting. I didn't really sing in public before my mission, but now I ingoy singing, I still don't ike to sing in front of people but I will if you ask me to! 

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in Guatemala when I was 10 years old. I moved to the US with my family soon after that. I have always known the Book of Mormon is true, my mother and all of my siblings are LDS and I have seen the blessings that come by living the gospel. 

How I live my faith

Before my mission, I served in my ward as a primary teacher, it was one of my favorite callings. I loved the children that I served and I learned so much from teaching them and learned FROM them as well. now, as a full time missionary I talk to people about the church ALL DAY LONG I love being a missionary.  

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Afrodita
yes, why not? God is the same yesterday today and always, if he sent prophets before why wouldn't he now? he still loves his children as much as he did in the old testament times. he left Peter as a prophet when he left this earth so we know that revelation was not done away with after Christ's death.  Show more Show less

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Afrodita
 we belive that baptism is a saving ordinace, in other words without baptism you can not be saved in the kingdom of God, it is so imortant in fact that it must be done by someone who holds power and athority, permision, from God to perform that baptism. we belive that that athority was restored on earth by a prophet in the 1820's. the "one" baptims that counts is the one done by this power and athority, known as the priesthood, whitch worthy men in this faith hold.  Show more Show less
