Hi I'm Marcos

I have so much joy to know that like you,I am a son of a Heavenly Father!! and yes I am a MORMON.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in the California Fresno Mission and this is what I wanted to do the next day after I got baptized,because in this church is where I found the real love of God and true happines!!!! 3 years ago I made the most important decision in my whole life,I got baptized in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints,and since that day my life changed completely,I have no words how to describe the feelings that I HAD AND STILL HAVE AFTER MY BAPTIZM!!! It has been the most exciting experience so far in my life! I love outdoor activities and I love cooking for me and everybody else,and being a member of this church means everything to me,because Jesus Christ my savior is the one that leads this church by his modern ProphetThomas S. Monson. 

Why I am a Mormon

First of all,Mormon was the name of the prophet that compiled or put together all of the other writings of the prophets, who lived and prophesied about Christ here in the Americas,and those sacred ancient writings and scriptures are what we have now as The Book of Mormon, another witness of OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.That's why most of the people know us as Mormons, and that we read it together with the BIBLE AS IF THEY WERE ONE IN HAND. THAT IS WHY I AM A MORMON BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT I LEARN IN THIS CHURCH HELPS ME TO BE A BETTER PERSON AND COME BACK TO LIVE WITH MY FATHER IN THE CELESTIAL KINGDOM.

How I live my faith

None of us are perfect. That's why we came to this earth,to strive and do all possible to become perfect like our Father and His son Jesus.In this life we all have trials, difficulties, temptations, pains, sicknesses, death, and so on that through all of that we can develope Faith, Patience, Love, Hope, Strength and all the attributes that God and His Son have, so I can say that I live my faith every day because every day we have mistakes that we have to work on ,but if we ask God for help in our every day prayers I know for sure that He helps us to overcome evrything that do not help us to progress in this life.Sometimes living my faith is difficult but when I know that GOD AND HIS SON ARE ON MY SIDE ,IT BECOMES EASIER AND I FEEL A LOT OF JOY WHEN I FOLLOW GOD'S COMMANDMENTS AND IT IS LIKE NO OTHER JOY!!!

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

In reality it is not our own money. It's God's money because He gives us the strength to work,and He only asks the 10 back to see if we have faith in Him to bless us more. For me, the most important part of giving the 10 is a way to show gratitude of all the things that he gives us every day,and also that we can contribute a little bit in building THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH!!!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

In Spanish there is a saying that says "IN THE ASKING IS THE RECEIVING." If we ask our Father in Heaven having faith in Him, and ending in the name of His beloved son Jesus Christ, I promess you that you will receive an answer like I did. YOU DO NOT LOSE ANYTHING BY ASKING, BUT IF YOU RECEIVE AN ANSWER, YOU WILL EARN A LOT OF JOY AND PEACE because of the good fellings that will tell you that it is TRUE!!!! Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We do believe in the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God, but we also believe in the Book of Mormon because it is the keystone of our religion,and it also contains the words of God and the Prophets here in the Americas. Something very interesting is that it also contains the fulfillments of prophecies from the Bible, . That's one of the many reasons I believe it is also the word of God and it's TRUE!!! I grew up reading the Bible, and the scriptures in the Bible helped me understand that the Book of Mormon is true,and I invite all people from every nation to give it a try and pray to God to know if it is true. I promise you that you will receive an answer like I did!!!! THE BIBLE AND THE BOOK OF MORMON ARE TWO WITNESSES THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST,AND IN THE BIBLE IT SAYS IN THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES ALL WORDS SHALL BE ESTABLISHED. So what more prove can we have about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon!!!! Show more Show less
