Hi I'm Chris

I'm currently sharing the gospel by being a full-time spanish missionary in Naples, Florida, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 Well to start off I was born in Mesa Arizona. Its very hot out there. I was actually born on a day where it was more then 130 degrees! I graduated from High School and now I'm almost 21 and biking around in the heat of Florida trying to help people the best I can... Some of my intrest and hobbies is I love to draw, doodle, sketch, paint, and create. Usually if I have a paper and pencil I'll just habitually be doodling. I love doing it. I'm pretty good at drawing anime, but i can draw other stuff too. Sports-wise I like to play volliball the most, just cause its a team sport, but everyone has to participate at some point. Musically I been trying to learn how to play the piano I know how to play a couple hymns like "Sweet hour of prayer" and I love to sing even though I'm awful at it. My favorite hymn would hafto to be "Tengo gozo en mi alma hoy" but just in spanish just cause spanish is awesome. Because I'm a spanish missionary I hafto speak spanish. Even though I might look like I already knew it since I was a kid. My parents actually never spoke it So I been learning out here. But I have blood from Spain and Mexico. I looooove the spanish culture by the way and my favorite type of food is spanish food. chinese is my second food Even though I know two languages I studied alittle bit of japanese in high school, and I hope to dedicate more time into it when I'm home. I hope to get a job in either computers or being a cartoonist. and will start college when i get back from my mission. Well I think thats alot about me, thanks for reading!!

Why I am a Mormon

Well I was born into the church and at first I didn't know much about it. My family wasn't really active in the church. But when I went to high school I was intrested in learning more. So I decided to read the book of mormon. a book that talks about God's dealings with the people in america. After reading the book of Mormon I got down on my knees and prayed. and i recieved a solid testimony that the book was inspired scriptures. Its given me so much joy that I want others to feel that happiness too.

How I live my faith

 Because I'm a missionary I live my faith by teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ everyday and by serving people in many diffrent ways. mowing yards, cleaning, killing giant spiders

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

 A cult is group of people that believe someone is divine and follow in their ways. In reality, all Christian churches are a cult because they believe in Jesus Christ. Though people often mistake the definition of the word as some dark, sinister group who follow a leader blindly. Thus they think were at fault cause we have a living prophet today. A prophet like Moses, Noah, and Isasiah. Just as people uphold their pastors as authorative figures, we uphold our prophet as someone who has the authority to recieve information from God to help the whole world stay on the straight and narrow path to eternal life. He has recieved this authority through the priesthood. and his authority can be traced back to Jesus Christ. He helps us with the wave of new temptations that strike the world today. If people would just listen to his words, they would understand. But most people don't even listen but just assume we worship him. Thats why people call us a cult.  Show more Show less
