Hi I'm Eddie!

Born in Mexicali, raised in Fabulous Las Vegas. I've studied over 4 languages, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born in Mexico, raised in the United States. I love my office job, I like studying different languages. I can speak English, Spanish, French, and some Japanese. Interested in meeting people from different countries. I listen to a lot of Jazz! I face all of my life's situations with confidence and I'm very optimistic!  

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have tried to be the best latter day saint I can be and have been greatly blessed for it. I have fully read The Book of Mormon and have felt so many positive things that I can't deny it's validity. I know for a fact that I am on the right path, and if I continue on that path, I will always be blessed by our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I accompany the missionaries whenever I can, I attend church regularly and I always keep the church teachings in mind so I can live a better life. I have taught the young priesthood holders and it's a lot of fun. I have visited temples with priesthood leaders as well. I have organized and have helped organize many events that keep our members active and united. That's how I live my faith.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Eddie!
Priesthood holders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints perform proxy baptisms because it gives every person that has ever lived and that hadn't been baptized a chance to be saved in the afterlife. We believe that one cannot inherit the Kingdom of God if one does not get baptized. By performing proxy baptisms, we give people who have passed away, a chance to decide if they want to accept or deny the plan of salvation. Show more Show less
