Hi I'm Joel

My family and I are from Mexico. I'm serving a mission in San Antonio. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I'm serving a mission in San Antonio so for the past 10 months my life has been fully dedicated to the Lord. My family is originally from Mexico City but we live in Texas now.I'm an only child. I'm 20 years old and I'm hoping to major in Physical Therapy someday. I went to school at the University of Texas Pan-American for a couple semesters before my mission.I love soccer. Playing it, watching it, playing Fifa. I love my country's Vitamin T, tacos tortas and tamales. I love music, I grew up with Mana and Cafe Tacvba and I love Zoe and Moenia. Over all though, I love the Lord!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this church but I came to a point in my life where I realized that I was going to church just because my parents made me. Certain things happened in my life and I had to find out for myself if Heavenly Father was truly there. Conversion is a life long process, but as I've fully lived his gospel I've seen changes and blessings in my life, as well as in the lives of those I've helped come unto Christ. I know that Christ is truly our glorified elder Brother. He has my full abiding trust in him because he has never let me down, and everytime I've obeyed him he has blessed me immensly so that i have no reason to doubt. I know that my family is eternal because of what I've felt in the temple, and all I do know is try to live my life as best as I can to show my Savior that I love him by obeying him.

How I live my faith

Like I mentioned I'm serving a mission in San Antonio,Tx. Everyday I go out and invite people to make changes in their lives so that they can fully align their will with their Heavenly Father's. It's a huge blessing to be here because I've been able to see the changes that the Atonement can bring into peoples lives, and I appreciate my mother and father so much more because of what they've done for me by teaching me the gospel through their examples.
