Hi I'm Victor

I grew up in CA into a Catholic family. I later moved to AZ where I met friends who were mormon, now I am a mormon 3 years later.

About Me

I like to play football for my school, although we aren't the best Im committed to them. I also am pretty good in school because I get good grades maintaining a 4.3 GPA. I like plying video games in my spare time, but I don't usually get that since now I have such a busy schedule with all the dances every 2 weeks and with having seminary every morning. I think my life has been made better by being a mormon. I just love how everyone is so nice to me, that's one of the things that made me want to become mormon. I also like how all the families are so close knit and how they have a thing called Family Home Evening every Monday. I like hanging out with friends, I like doing sports year round, I just love how much my life has changed for the best since I became mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I had to move to Arizona in 2006 because my parents wanted a new house, I was currently living in California. So then I was living in Arizona for about 2 years and I knew almost nothing about mormons. In 6th grade I met 2 great mormon friends who were really nice to me. We became great friends. Over the years my friend and I did football together and even into Highschool. It was so tough being in high school since it was a new thing to me at first but my friends were still there for me. Near the end of Freshmen year my friends started to talk to me more and more about the gospel and I met even more members of the church. Around 2 days after school ended I met the missionaries for discussion and then 4 days later I was baptized. They say it was because I had such great friends who were helping the gospel grow in me over the years. Now I am like any other boy, I do football, I'm a sophomore, I like to play video games, I have great friends, and now I am a Mormon. I love how I can say that proudly for everyone to know, because I'm not ashamed, I am not scared to let the whole world know that I am a mormon and I love life and how much being a mormon has blessed me.

How I live my faith

Ever since I became mormon I have been given many responsibilities. I found myself becoming a teacher right away so I had to learn how to pass the sacrament. A few months later we were doing scout camp and so I they chose me as the Senior Patrol Leader, I had to help lead some kids up North. That was an amazing experience that helped my testimony grow, I had the privilege of seeing a lightning bolt strike the ground when we went up north. When I came back a month later I was told that they wanted me to become the leader of the teachers. I was the leader of the teachers for only about a month and now I found out that our ward was being split. So now I get to start over from scratch and now I can't wait to see where the lord will take me in my life. I am so happy to have become mormon because now I can see how much being one has blessed me in my life.
