Hi I'm Rudy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Colombia, I like to build things so I got a degree in Civil Engineering at Brigham Young University-Provo. I love playing sports and anything that involve the outdoors. In fact i enjoy exercising, I love seeing constant improvement. I want to build the best physique that i'm physically capable of having. After joining the church a served a full time mission in Chle Viña del Mar Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

Back in 1998 missionaries from The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were sent to open a new area in Cerete, Cordoba, Colombia. My family and I were living there at that time. I was not very famliar with the mormons but I friend of mine was and he told me stories about how everybody was scared of talking to them because they were trying to get adepts to their sect. Later on I got the chance to get acquainted with several missionaries. I didnt let them teach me because I didnt see the need of learning about any other religion. One day I was coming back from school and I saw the Elders outside their house and I stopped by and started talking to them and asking them questions about their faith. One of them told me that they had some messages that they would like to share with me. At the begining I said no but then I had this feeling that I had to listen to them. I told them that I had 5 minutes available. they started teaching me and that very first message about the plan of happines changed my life. It really gave me hope and I felt so close to that Heavenly Father that my parents had taught me to believe in. Two weeks after that first teaching I got baptized. I love the gospel. It is a prove to me that God lives and loves me. He showed me the way.

How I live my faith

I always try to be an example of what I believe in. When I first joined the church a friend of mine share a quote that got stuck with me. "Live your life in such a way that those who dont know Christ want to believe in Christ because they know you". People see our actions and if they are good then we can have a positive influence on them. I look for opportunities to share the gospel with my fellow beings. I want everybody to experience the happiness that this Church has braught to my life.
