Hi I'm Faty

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Panama. I´m a member of the church 20 years ago. I was a missionary in San Jose, Costa Rica.

About Me

I like to read everyday my scriptures, watching TV (specially movies with values). I finished a career based in English. I don´t have kids. My husband and I wait that blessing. I like to visit natural parks with history and with places out of my country I watch National Geographics because I don´t have money!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born of a good mother and father. My mother always felt interest in a religious because she tought that adore and obey to God was very important specially because we were five kids growing up. One day, a mother´s aunt that is mormon presented her a pair of sweet missionaries that planned a visit at our home. The speeches were unforgetables. I felt a sweet feeling of happiness and rejoice in my live. I didn´t know all but I had faith in Christ and in the Plan of Salvation. I´m grateful to my mom for her good example, actually we´ll continue strong in the Gospel. I know that my Lord live. I know that we can live together as a eternal family. I´m grateful for the sacrify of Christ for everyone of us. Now, I´m very happy. I know that I can talk freely with God through the prayer everytime and specially in difficult times.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday, I go with my husband to our ward, specifically in the morning. I greet my brothers and sisters. I have a calling as a teacher of the gospel based in the scriptures. Every month, I visit with another sister some sisters and share a message. The visits are amazing because we can express love and charity one with another. At home, every Monday, my husband and I have a "Home Evening". It´s a beautiful meeting where we can share a gospel message, talk about our marriage, eat a refreshment, and planning something important to do in the next days.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Ghost can bless your life in many ways. Christ promised His Apostles that the Holy Ghost would “teach you all things” John 1426 and “guide you into all truth” John 1613. He also said that the Holy Ghost “shall testify of me” John 1526. Likewise, the Holy Ghost can help you. Through the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, you can recognize and understand truth and make right choices and inspired decisions. The Holy Ghost can inspire you with thoughts and ideas, warn you, and comfort you in times of sorrow. Show more Show less
