Hi I'm Francisco

I was born in El Salvador and now living in Canada. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am husband to a beautiful wife and we live in Canada. I manage a retail store and at the same time I am at school working on my Business degree. I enjoy relaxing at home and also working out.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Mormon church and even though my parents brought me up in this church there was a time where I needed to know for myself if it was true. It wasn't until I was 19 when I came to know the truthfulness of the Gospel. I had asked myself why was it that I was coming to church for all these years. I knew it was ou of respect for my parents but I needed to find out if this was something that I wanted to continue doing. I was also in the mist of preparing to put in my papers to go on a mission. I began to read the Book of Mormon and I tried to focus my feelings when I was reading it. I tried to remember what Moroni said in chapter 10 verse 3 and 4; to ponder them. I began to feel good about what I was doing. I felt that there was something else. I decided to put in my papers for my mission. I didn't know that my mission would be the place that i would gain my testimony. It was not until 6 months into my mission that the burning in my bossom came. As I was reading the Book of Mormon one morning for my personal studies I felt something as I read word by word. I cannot remember what book I was reading or chapter or verse but one thing I knew was that the Spirit was talking to me and confirming to me that what I was reading was good. I got on my knees and began to pray and asked my Heaven Father if this was my answer; was the The Book of Mormon true? That same feeling that I felt when I was reading came back to me and that is when I knew that this book was true. I knew that if The Book of Mormon was true it meant that the person who had translated them was a prophet of God and that only by the power of God was he able to translate it. I knew Jospeh Smith was called of God and that he restored-brought back-the Church of Jesus Christ in these days.

How I live my faith

I am currently the clerk in my ward and see the administrative part of the Church. I've also had the opportunity to teach the adults and youth throughout the years.
