Hi I'm Michael

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi my name is Michael. I am currently serving as a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Texas Houston South Mission speaking Spanish. I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve the Lord and to bring the Gospel to all who are willing to hear it. I am the sixth of seven children and my family means the world to me. After my mission, I plan on returning to Brigham Young University and finishing my studies to become an American History teacher. I enjoy being outdoors, playing sports, reading, playing the piano, and just about anything else. I am just an average person that has been blessed immensely by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I want to share these blessings with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but I have found that in the past year I have truly become converted. Throughout my life I have always know that this gospel is true and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of the world. I have always known that Joseph Smith was and is a prophet of God and that the scriptures are true. What I have come to find out for myself though, is that the purifying power of the Atonement is real. There is a peace and a healing that occurs in my life when I access the Atonement. I know that Heavenly Father knows me, loves me, and is mindful of me. He hears and answers my prayers. He has done this many times. I know that the tender mercies of the Lord spoken of by Nephi are real, for I have witnessed them so frequently in my life. I have a testimony of the power of the Priesthood. As I look back over the course of my life, I realize that I would not have been able to exist without it. I can't remember how many times I have been healed through a Priesthood blessing, but I know that each time I demonstrate faith and receive a Priesthood blessing, my life is blessed in some way. The Book of Mormon is true, this gospel is true, it is all true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I have felt of and know the love of God and I want all of His children to feel of that love for them. Because I know that God loves me and I know that He is not a respecter of persons, I know that He loves all of His children and wants us all to be happy. That is what I try to do as a missionary is to bring the joy of living the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others.
