Hi I'm Toribio Jason Vigil

I love to dance. I served a mission in Las Vegas, NV. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up here in Denver with a desire to dance. I went to school majoring in dance and still find plenty of time to do hip-hop, though I have done various types of dance, I consider tap and hip-hop my favorites. I am currently a college student with the hope to become a Dentist. Most of the people that know me find that to be odd because I'm a bit of a germ freak. I like to work hard in my garden. There is some sort of gratification that comes from creating a masterpiece in the yard and to taste the sweet works of your labor. I enjoying taking pictures of nature, some of the best photos I have are of lightning storms. The strongest bolt shows just a glimpse of our Lord's power. I have such a love for Italian food and I love to bake. My favorite thing to bake would be Brown Sugar Muffins-crisp stumps and moist centers. I always thought school and work would be my life until I went out more and found just about anything appealing and available to try.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the church. Both my mother and father are members and their mother and father are members too. My family has history in the church all the way back to Pancho Villa and Aguilar, CO. With a family background like this it would be easy to come into the church and find it welcoming and suitable. I did for a while. There comes a point in every persons life that they need to decide which path the want their life to follow. I could no longer lean on the testimony of my parents or grandparents. I had to and wanted to know what was right for me in my life. I went to my room and I I prayed to my Heavenly Father of the things I was taught as a young boy. I offered the most simple prayer that came to my heart and I found my answer to come YEARS later through people and experiences. When I closed my prayer I felt good in where my life was heading. As my life went on I had people and experiences solidify that knowledge I had as I finished my prayer. The answer came as I worked hard to be good and to serve others. I can only imagine my life if I had not knelt down to find out for myself if this church was true. I had to find my own testimony and feel it to be right in my own heart. I do know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church. I know that this church follows the teachings of the Holy Bible and The Book of Mormon. We are lead by Christ through a living, modern day prophet. God loves us and will never leave us to battle the world's temptations and afflictions alone. Jesus Christ lives and loves of enough to give us the chance to come back to Him and our Heavenly Father. I know this to be true and invite those that are looking for answers to ask our loving Heavenly Father. He will answer us because He loves us.

How I live my faith

I am currently the Ward Executive Secretary and Youth Sunday School teacher in a family ward. I try my best to help those within in the congregation be setting up appointments to meet with the Bishop and organize our weekly program. I teach the youth the stories from the Bible and we are currently learning of Christ's life. I volunteer a bit with the local young adults in doing what we can to help the community. I was able to volunteer my services as well as many others as I was helped in my Eagle project to clear a local lake trail. At church I want to help others with questions or needs they may have. We all pitch in and do our part to clean the building. I love to give rides to those not expecting one. A recent ride was giving to an older man who was walking in the pouring rain. His pants falling from the amount of rain he was walking through. I do my best at living by example and feel it to be one of the best ways I can live my faith. We must do good to be good to become better.
