Hi I'm Gus

I was born in Chile. I grew up in the United States. I love Sci-Fi and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in a little town in Chile and at the age of 5 moved to California, USA with my mother. When I was 13 I put on plays for my parents as I wanted to make movies. I enlisted in the Marines and after serving for 8 years in the Infantry I was Honorably Dicharged with the rank of Sergeant (E-5). I graduated from film school and love all things sci-fi. I enjoy creative writing, science and my wife'scooking.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always believed in Christ and prayed to my Heavenly Father but there was always something missing in the churches that I went to. One day gos saw fit to send two young men to our doors and we felt what "it" was; the Holy Spirit. The ring of truth followed with intensity after every discussion we had and I felt a conviction that this indeed was the Lord's true church. Having read Most of he Bible and the Book of mormon several times, as well as praying confirmed to me that this is God's church.

How I live my faith

I go to church often and meet with a great group of men committed to serving their neighbors. Together we serve the families within our congregational boundaries meet their spiritual needs as well as provide acts of service. I read the holy scriptures daily, say my prayers and strive to obey God's commandments. I'm far from perfect but the joy, peace and love I feel by living proper principles gives me the courage and supportmy family needs to keep strong in the faith.

What is the First Vision?

This event is the singl biggest question in all mortality; which, if any, of all the churches is true? It reveals with its answer the reality of God the Father and Jesus Christ and that they live now and that God speaks to man in modern times still. I have come to know thru much prayer and scripture study that this truly did happen; that the 14 year old Joseph Smith did in fact see the son of God at his right hand in 1820 and they spoke as one man to another. The answer he received was simple; none of the existing churches were true. A lot has happened since then! Show more Show less
