Hi I'm Bryan

I'm a Mormon. I'm from Layton, Utah. I'm serving a mission.

About Me

I LOVE LIFE! My dad is from Colombia South America. I love South American cultures, they are happy fun and exciting. I love the different cultural dances they do. My family is a total of 5 members. My Parents, my older brother, me, and my little sister. I have so many hobbies. I love to play sports, including: Basketball, Soccer, and Taekwondo. One of my loves is to dance. I love to do hip-hop, popping n' locking, and Tecktonik. Working on robot and breakdancing. I love dancing merengue and salsa as well. My life is surrounded by music and sounds. I love to listen to music, to sing to it, and specially dance to it. Music is my life, without it life would be boring. I like to draw (anime/realistic), play with yoyo's and I like to build things with my hands. I'm going to college after my mission. I want to be a family therapist, why? Because, in this world of dying values families are being torn apart and I want to help them stay together, like they should, for eternity. I have a wonderful girlfriend, who is now serving a mission of her own in California. My life is so blessed I have a wonderful family, a wonderful mission, wonderful friends, and a wonderful girlfriend. My motto is ...STAY HAPPY!!... and my favorite scripture is 2Ne 5:27. My goal in life is to become the happiest kid in the universe. I'm all about being happy and did I mention just being happy? haha. ^_^ -- happy faces only when you read this.

Why I am a Mormon

My whole life I've been a member of this church, so I might not know what it is like to not be a member, but one thing I do know is that someday everyone has to choose whether they believe in something or not. That time for me was at the age of 14. I've spent my whole life going to church, praying, reading the Book of Mormon with my family, but something was missing. I didn't really even have my own conversion to what I was doing, I didn't really know for myself. So I took Moroni's challenge, which is to read the Book of Mormon and afterwards to pray to God and ask sincerely if this Book is true. I read it in about 2 months. I immediatly dropped to my knees when I finished, and offered up all my desires to know that this book was true. I felt such an overwhelming feeling that it is super hard to explain. I felt calm, but really happy, I felt like someone was whispering to me that this book is true. That it was translated by the power of God, through Joesph Smith. My testimony of the Book of Mormon was finally there. Today I'm 19, the strongest point of my testimony will always be the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is known as the key stone of the LDS religion, this means that if the Book of Mormon is true then everything with this church is true. Since I know the Book of Mormon is true, that means everything that has to do with this church, I know is true. I'm a mormon because I love the Lord more than anything else in this world, and I want to do what he wants me to do. To be what he wants me to be.

How I live my faith

I live and love my faith. Before my mission, I was a teacher for a Class, teaching is alot of fun you get to know people and help people understand the gospel more. Also I was on a youth committee (a group of kids who plan activities for the youth). Planning activites for the youth was so much fun. My favorite things were to plan dances. I love the activities that the church can provide they are wholesome and uplifting, as well as alot of fun. I live my faith as of now, serving a mission for the LDS church. Serving a mission is alot of fun and very hard work. Through a mission we are able to invite others to come to christ, through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentence, baptism, recieving the holy ghost, and enduring to the end. Through a mission, a missionary is able to deepen his faith and grow closer to God. Through missions we get to experience much joy and help others recieve this everlasting, eternal joy. Also a fun thing about the LDS church is chior. I love to sing in the chior. Many times we get to perform for the community. I can either sing or play in a band as a clarinetist. But performing music that can uplift people is so much fun, and brings me much joy to help others.
