Hi I'm Jorge

I'm from Mexico. I love learning. I love tennis! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student attending Brigham Young University in Provo, UT. I love learning, so a college atmosphere is my favorite place to be. I enjoy great media that helps me feel or think something I haven't thought before. Whether that's movies, books, music, or anything in between I also love sports, especially tennis. My Parents are both from Mexico and I was born in Mexico City and grew up there till I was 8 years old. We then moved to Orem UT. I have 1older sister and we are very close. I served in the Nevada Las Vegas Mission. It's amazing how I grew to love that city and the people that I shared the gospel with there. One of my favorite things to do is to have a great long conversation with someone about anything. It brings me happiness to see all the diversity of viewpoints and interest and it increases my desire to meet more people an make new freinds.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and even when I was young I believed its teachings. All the things that I was taught by my parents and others made sense to me and they felt right. When I truly became committed though was when I was challenged to read the Book of Mormon when I was 15 years old. I read it in 2 months. I didn't understand all of it, but I had faith that I would get something out of reading it. When I finished late one night. I kneeled down and asked God if the Book of Mormon was true. I remember feeling a subtle peace, that I would not have noticed if I would have been preocupied. Because of that experience I knew that the Book of Mormon and the Church was true, because God told me through my feelings. Since then I realized that the things that the Church made sense because it's Truth from God. I know that if I follow the path marked for me it will bring me peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come. As I have worked to follow the path, the promised blessings have come to pass. So they for sure will continue to come in the future.

How I live my faith

For me the things that I believe have influenced every decision I make in life. My faith is not just a thing I do, but it permeates all aspects of my life. My faith led me to dedicate 2 entire years of my life to help others know about this message. It has helped me treat other with love and kindness no matter how they might treat me. It's helped have loving relationships with my family despite our differences. I feel like it has helped me live a happy life, and it has given me a lot of hope for the future, even though the it is uncertain. I feel like I have almost no fears, because I have all the answers to questions in life. This makes me a very happy and upbeat person, so I can be a joy to others around me. I always try to brighten others day, and serve them so they're lives can be a little more pleaseant and enjoyable. I always am working on improving myself not only for me, but because I want to please my Heavenly Father and I know he want's me to be the best I can be.
