Hi I'm Abel

I'm from Chilpancingo, Mexico. I love Soccer. Im serving in the California Fresno Mission.

About Me

I love soccer, I like to read novels and write poems. I am 22 years old, some people call me The Legacy and I am serving in the California Fresno Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a convert. I got baptized when I was 16 years old, my mom's friend (bless her heart) invited her to some Relief Society activity and then she went to the church next Sunday, and then the missionaries started teaching us in our house, and then, I started to go to the church on Sundays, I remember one of the missionaries sharing an scripture in Joshua, which said something like: "choose today, who are going to serve.." I felt something really nice telling me that all the things that the missionaries said were truth. I got baptize a week later, with my sister, and I'm really happy for that, my mom got baptize a year after with my younger brother, my older brother and my father are not members yet but I know they will baptize soon and feel the Spirit of God in their lives. I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth again, I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and He restored His Gospel, I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, I know that my Redeemer lives and He will come again. I know families can be together, and I'm striving now, in my mission to be an example for others and help them to make the right choice, and partake of the Living Waters.

How I live my faith

It is really cool be part of this church because I have the oportunity to share this special messagge with my friends, and others and teach them about my beliefs, in the church I learned a lot of things that help me in different ways in my life, now I know that being an example is the best thing to invite people to the church, I really believe that if we live what we preach and what we know and if we keep God's word we will receive His blessings. And nothing brings me more joy and happiness that being a representative of Jesus Christ and testify of His gospel and invite others to come to Him.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Abel
Part of God's plan is giving us the oportunity to have families and get not only happines and joy for this life but the life to come as well. Obeying the Law of Chastity keep us safe, clean, pure to make promises with God, and be worthy to receive His blessings. Show more Show less
