Hi I'm Emilio

I love Arizona State! I love my new found hobby of fishing :) Life is good and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a pretty cool dude. Music is my jam :) I straight up love going running, playin xbox, hitting up roller coasters, playing ball, scuba diving, chillin with my friends, going on dates, and I especially love spending time with my family. so pretty much anything fun I love doing :) Family is where it is at. I am the second oldest out of 6 kids. My older sister and I come from a previous marriage but thanks to the teachings of Christ and the temple I know that all of our family, no matter how diverse, will be together in heaven. I want to learn everything! I want to learn tons of languages. I'm currently working on ASL and Spanish will be next :) I'm looking forward to going to Arizona State :D In want to major in American History and probably minor in something having to do with languages. I love my country and my church. I plan on serving both! I don't know where i would be without Christ and His Gospel or my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church but while I was deciding whether or not I should serve a mission I had to know if it was even true. I used the gift of prayer to find my answer. I love being a member of the Church, the Gospel has blessed my life and I continue to see how the Lord blesses the ones who want to follow Him. The Book of Mormon is true, It just makes sense to me. If anyone has doubts about it all they have to do is read it study and apply it, if it doesn't bring you closer to Christ then it isn't true...but the same logic applies because if it is true then the church is true and its teachings. There are no problems that Christ can't help you through and I know that the Book of Mormon helps everyone come closer to Christ. The number one reason that i continue to teach and learn about my church is because out of all the other christian religions i find the most peace and answers in my church. It just makes sense...just ask God.

How I live my faith

By following the example of my Savior Jesus Christ I try everyday to become a better person. I try my best to help out everyone I see. The Gospel of Jesus Christ are the teachings of the Church and I know that if I live faithfully and rely on the Lord I will be doing what my Father in heaven wants me to.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Emilio
As members of the Church we are all supposed to continue to do missionary work whether it be service to someone in need or inviting a friend to attend a meeting or Church event but as Mormons young men usually starting at the age of 19 have a duty , much like it is a civic duty to vote, to serve a full time mission which consists of 2 years of devoted work. We always try to follow our Saviours example and his entire life was that of missionary work. It is a great blessing for me to be able to be serving a mission for my church right now and I know that by diong this I am coming closer to Christ everyday Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Emilio
We share how the Gospel of Jesus Christ will bless your life. This Gospel includes truths that have been restored through a prophet of God such as the necessity for baptism and Gods plan for us not only in this life but the life after, also the great love that our Savior has for us and how through Him we can be cleansed from sin and guilt. The message we share is a message of hope and love...its worth at least letting the missionaries in and trying out what they say. Show more Show less
