Hi I'm Carlos

I was born in El Salvador. My family moved to the States when I was three. I'm a husband and a father of three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am competitive. I enjoy watching and playing sports, especially football. I enjoy the outdoors. Some of my favorite outdoor activities include archery hunting, mountain biking and snowboarding. I used to really enjoy playing video games but there's no time for that anymore. I am married to an amazing woman and we have three beautiful children. Spending time with my family is important to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church all my life. I believe that God is my Heavenly Father. I believe that God sent his son Jesus Christ to atone for my sins. I believe that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my Redeemer. I believe that Jesus Christ lives. I believe that God communicates with his children through prophets and apostles. I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I believe that God chose Joseph Smith to translate the Book of Mormon. I believe that the Book of Mormon was written by prophets and apostles that lived on the American continents before, during and after Christ’s ministry on earth. I believe that we have a prophet on earth today. I am grateful for God’s prophets and apostles. I believe that prophets provide clarity and direction during increasingly complicated times.

How I live my faith

I served a two-year full time mission for the Church in Santiago Chile. I truly enjoyed teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the wonderful people of Chile. Since my mission, I have had several opportunities to volunteer in the Church. Some of the most memorable opportunities to serve have included the Church’s youth program, Cub Scout master and Home Teacher. The Home Teaching program of our church is set up such that we can bring the word of Christ into our member’s homes.
