Hi I'm Jesus Hurtado

I am an older brother. I try to be a great son. And I'm definitely a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family. That is one of my highest priorities in my life. I also love sports and being active. I particularly like soccer and ultimate frisbee. I was called to serve as a missionary for the church in the Mexico Chihuahua mission for 2 years. I'm currently enrolled at one of the church's universities as a full time student.

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the church all my life. My mother is a convert at the age of 19 and I like to think the same. There have been a lot of moments where I have doubted the veracity of the Church of Jesus Christ but I kept with it because I knew nothing else. But when I decided to go on a mission it was necessary that I find out for myself the truth of it, for why would I try to share something with the world if I wasn't even sure I believed. It wasn't until i was a week into my mission that I figured it out I received my personal answer from God about the truthfulness of the Gospel that had been shared with me throughout my life. This isn't much to say about it now, only that I know and therefore I am obligated to do something with that knowledge.

How I live my faith

Well most of my callings have been as some sort of leadership within the youth.Including president among 3 different groups and counselor within each group. And recently when I was up at college I was called as a spanish indexer. I had the privilege of looking at old documents in order to take the information they held and store it on an online database. Also, because the church is also involved in Boy Scouts, I had the oppurtunity of developing myself within the outdoors too. I have fond memories and even fonder lessons because of Scouts. I have learned that service can change a lot if done right, meaning with the attitude of love. I have develooed friendships that will last a lifetime. I have created experiences that i will never forget. Furthermore, I have achieved the title of an Eagle Scout, one thing i never thought i'd achieve. And all thanks to my faith.

In whom should we have faith?

Jesus Hurtado
If what we desire is eternal life and all the blessings promised by our God then the place where we can center our faith is in Christ. Bishops, books, corporations, nothing but Christ-centered faith will achieve this. Show more Show less
