Hi I'm Chris

I'm 22, yes I'm Hispanic but NO I can't speak Spanish, I love being outside, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 and currently serving a mission in the Florida Tallahassee Mission. I have a very competitive nature. I love all kinds of sports and have recently found a love for Cricket. I love doing anything that ends in "board" (skateboard, snowboard, wakeboard, etc...). I grew up in the Dallas area of Texas to parents who really showed me how to work for the things I wanted whether it was toys, a new skateboard, abilites, or postition on a sports team. Throughout high school I played football and ran track. Though my family didn't always have everything, I know few people who work as hard as my parents and I will forever be grateful for that.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many great things that other religions offer, but there is only one that offers us EVERYTHING. This is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full-time mission in the Florida Tallahassee Mission trying to live my life as closely to the Savior's as possible to be one of His representatives here for these two years.

What is the First Vision?

Chris
The First Vision is the most pivital point in the history of the world since the life of Jesus Christ. It is the answer to Joseph Smith's prayer as to which church that God wanted him to join. God the Father and His son Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph that day and revealed to him that none of the churches on the earth at that time were true. That many of them had bits and pieces of truth but none truly had the fullness and the through Joseph, Jesus Christ was to restore the same church that He himself had established during His earthly minitry which was distorted and lost after the death of the apostles. If this is true (which I know it to be) then this is the most important message ever to be brought to the earth. Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

Chris
The priesthood is the authority for man to act in the name of God here on earth for the salvation of His children. Because we are on the earth to live by faith, God cannot be here with us. Thus, he authorizes certain worthy males to oversee the work in all aspects of His kingdom here on earth. The priesthood is in no way a position "above" anyone else. It is a calling of service; one who worthily holds the priesthood gives his life in selfless dedication to God and His children. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Chris
The Book of Mormon, just like the Bible, was written by many different prophets of God. These prophets lived here on the American continent and had prophecies and revelations from God similar to the ones we read about in the Bible. This record spans from about 600 years before the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ to about 400 years after his death. This 1,000 year record was abridged, or condensed, onto a set of golden plates by a prophet named Mormon (hence the title) and hid up to come forth in these, the last days to compliment the Bible and prepare the world for the Second coming of Jesus Christ. The only way one can truly know if this book is true is to read and ask God who is the source of all truth. No one convinced by man will have a lasting foundation or testimony of these truths but an answer from God cannot be denied. Show more Show less
