Hi I'm Noah

I am the middle child of 11 children, I speak spanish and english, I ran a marathon, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am the 6th child of a family of 11. I am an Eagle Scout. My older brother and i ran a marathon before we graduated from High School, when i was 16 years old. I worked as an Eye Technician. I plan to become a doctor. I studied my first two years of college in Health Related Occupations and Nursing Assistant. I love music, running, and laughter.

Why I am a Mormon

My ancestors joined the church and i am a seventh generation Mormon. I grew up in Snowflake, AZ where my parents and others have taught me the truths of the gospel. During some of the hard times in my life i remembered what my parents taught me and by praying to Heavenly Father and felt for myself the truth. I am grateful for my Savior. He is the reason why i am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

In my ward i worked with a young man, who has fragile-x syndrom. He doesnt know how to talk, but he does understand most of what people tell him. We often go to the Park next to our church and i watch as he plays and talk to him. I watch and play and teach him so his parents have a chance to go to their church meetings without having to worry about him. I am very grateful to even know him. He understands and it takes someone who works with him every week to see that, but with the attention span of three seconds it takes a lot of patience. I feel like a watchful brother to him. We would go into the primary class with other children and we listen to the lessons they are learning. As i get to know him i know that he is a child of God, just as i am. I witnessed his parent's and God's love every week and it helps me realize the love i receive in my life.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We proselyte because we know that there are so many in the world that need the blessings that come from knowing the eternal plan of God for us His children. We simply want them to receive these blessings. Show more Show less
