Hi I'm Anna Rodriguez

I am a going to be missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the California Riverside Mission January 2016

About Me

I am 19 years old and I have been called to serve a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Riverside California area. I am from central Texas and have completed a year and a half of college. I could not be more excited to be leaving school for a year and a half for any other reason then to serve our Heavenly Father. Growing up I did many sports in high school and was always very active until I became injured my senior year. I was able to over come ever hard time that I had because of answered prayers and now I am able to help others come closer to Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member since I was born. I have been raised in the church and know it to be true. I would like to bear my testimony to you. I have recently finished The Book of Mormon for the second time.I have prayed many times about whether the church is true or not and I have received a strong yes. I believe it is the true church of God and his son Jesus Christ. I know that we have a living prophet on this earth today named Thomas S. Monson and I know that he receives revelation from Heavenly Father. I know that if we are sealed to our families we will live with them for all eternity. I know that we can do baptisms for the dead and that we are letting someone else live with Heavenly Father and when we pass away those that we saved will rejoice with us in heaven. I know that by doing Temple Sealings we are letting people live with their family members again. I know that everything we are being taught is true and that we need to learn it so we can live with Heavenly Father again. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

How I live my faith

I am very active in the church, I attend church every Sunday where ever I am. I received my personal progress medallion and also my honor bee from young women's and love being able to tell others about the church when they ask about the medallions. I dress modestly and try to keep the commandments to the best of my ability each day and when I know I have made a mistake I am able to repent and try again the next day. I share my testimony as often as I can with people I came in contact with.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?
