Hi I'm Jose

I enjoy fun facts, recreational activity, especially in the triathlon dept., swim+bike+run=Love, and I´m a mormon.

About Me

I´m a very outgoing guy, and enjoy to do new things. I´m super active above all. My main activity was training to do triathlons, but currently is learning to live the gospel better as I serve a full time mission in Honduras. I´m starting to read quite a bit, enjoy a great T.V. series (Greys Anatomy). Music is also a big part of my life. Discovered the Mo-Tab and Symphonies. Secretely love watching Theater acts. And love to be Latin.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was young, I grew up in California. I grew up with the ¨homies¨ and never really went to church, unless my mother drug me to it. At that time, we were Catholic.I knew I was not headed down the right path, not because of the choice of religion, but because of the decisions that I was taking. With all of our mothers effort to guide us in the right direction, there was something missing that would help me be led. We moved to Utah when I was 11, and the culture drastically changed. It was strange, but everyone around me seemed happy. My whole family noticed this right away as well. I was interested on what people were smiling about, why life was good for them. We started taking interest when the "Mormon Missionaries" visited our aunt, whom soon rejected their message, and they were kindly invited over to our home. The visits were great, and the spirit that they brought into our home filled that "empty feeling" which helped me recognize the sincere efforts of my mothers efforts for a righteous home. The event that changed my perspective of "the Mormons" and my joy was when the missionaries left a chapter in the Book of Mormon. My sister and I were determined to read it. I slipped into my room, said a silent prayer, and read. A couple hours had passed when the Missionaries arrived at our home. They asked how the reading went and what we learned of the chapter. I do not recall what chapter it was that they left, but I remember that as I was telling them of what I learned when they let me know that it was not the right chapter that they left. Although I had not read the correct chapter, the witness that I received that afternoon would change my life forever. No I am a "Happy Mormon"!! The testimony gained from that one afternoon, has now greatly expanded. I enjoy every aspect of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and find multiple ways on how to apply Christs teachings unto my life.

How I live my faith

After being baptized at the age of 13, there was a lot to learn. One of the ways that I lived my faith was just to say no to peer pressure. It was easy to say "No" when I had a firm foundation on the Gospel. And I quickly noticed that a lot of people respected me for that. Now that I am serving a full time mission, service is key to success.
