Hi I'm Victor

I grew up in Arizona. I am Hispanic. I am a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Italy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of five children, including one brother and three sisters. I grew up in the lovely Arizona desert. I have studied at Brigham Young University in Provo for two semesters. I hope to pursue a degree in Electrical Engineering. I speak fluent Spanish because both of my parents came from Mexico. I am blessed to be part of the Mexican culture and love participating in the traditions of my heritage. In my free time, I like to listen to music, spend time with my wonderful friends and family, and enjoy the outdoors on my bicycle.

Why I am a Mormon

Throughout my life, I have wondered why I live on this Earth at this specific time. I know that the answer to this question is that I have a purpose here on Earth that I have been sent to fulfill. I believe that our Heavenly Father loves us so much that he gave us the opportunity to learn for ourselves what it is that we must do in our time on Earth. I know that the Bible and the Book of Mormon can provide the guidance I need to be happy and prosper and that they provide the instructions to return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know that God continues to call prophets in our modern day and gives them guidance that we need to hear. My family and I have been blessed when I follow the teachings of the prophet. I also know that I have received answers to my prayers and that anyone can pray to God and receive answers of their own. I know that because of all the blessings I have received from being a member of the Church, I must also share them with those around me; that is why I am serving a mission in Italy. I want everyone to know the truth and feel the joy and peace that can only come from the Savior's true gospel.

How I live my faith

In the past, I had the opportunity to work with my church leaders and youth that were about the same age as me. We performed many acts of service in the surrounding community and had other fun activities that helped us bond together as we learned about the Savior. Currently, I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or the Mormon church. I am serving in the Northern part of Italy above Rome. My job as a missionary is to help others to come unto our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I also help people by providing service and love to them when they need it.
