Hi I'm Brian

I'm a Latino, A New Yorker, on an errand for the Lord and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in New York City all my life. Its tough being an LDS when there are so many religions and diversity there is as in New York City. But I love baseball and soccer a lot. Both of my parents are from El Salvador, so I love PUPUSAS! I love the Latino culture and I love learning from other cultures as well.

Why I am a Mormon

Well both of my parents are converts to the church, but it still means that I had to be converted. This gospel has brought alot of joy in my life. The first time that I really read the Book of Mormon was before I went to the mission and I pray to know that it is true. And I received an answer and realized that this Gospel blesses families and it has blessed my life in countless way. I know that God is Our Heavenly Father and he listens to us and when we really ask God with a since heart,real intent and a contrite spirit, you'll get an answer. I know that a 14 year old boy, Joseph Smith went to a grove a tree and saw God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ as two separate beings. I love my Savior Jesus Christ he loves us so much and he came to the world to help us and show us the way to return to lived with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Well since I'm a 2nd generation LDS in my family. Back home I had the wonderful opportunity to served in the Sunday School presidency and teacher. And right before I left my mission I was A Young Men leader and teacher. Now I'm grateful to be serving a full time mission for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and having the honor of being the 1st missionary in my family. I'm currently serving a Mission in the California Anaheim Mission

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Brian
Missionaries usually start serving a mission at age 19 if they are males and serve for 2 years. While women start at age 21 and served for a period of 18 months. It is a voluntary and MISSIONARIES are not paid for their service. They are representatives of the Church and the Lord Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
