Hi I'm Christopher Ortiz

I'm a soccer player. I love spending time with my family & friends, Love to dance Electro.

About Me

I love playing soccer, It has been one of my talents growing up, I've played on the streets a lot. I also like Running and dancing Electro. Music is my life. It makes me relax just listening to it. I played the violin for 7 years. I love to meet new people and try to be there for them when they need it. Cleaning is a habit of mine to stay organized. On my free time I go rock climbing and spending times outdoors. I love eating bowls of cereal! My family is my everything and love them dearly. I've learn to dream big and try my hardest even when life get tough. I want to become a soccer player for the USA team and study in college. The gospel has helped me so much and very grateful for it. I am also grateful for everyone that's been there for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true, I know that god lives and he is watching over us and helps me when I need help. It has also help me with things going on in my life and it brings me & my family more closer. I know without the gospel I would not be where I am today. My mom was the first becoming a member. I am grateful that my mom made this choice. The missionaries came to our house and taught me. When I was 9 I was baptized. At school people tell me why are you so happy, you are never sad, angry, or discourage. I tell them I get it from my mom and that I belong to The Church of Jesus-Christ of the latter day saints. When I go to church I feel so welcomed and know I have a second family. I love sharing the gospel to my friends and other people when I go out with the missionaries. I want everyone to be as happy as I am and know that Jesus Christ lives and that his gospel is restored here on the earth again.

How I live my faith

Playing soccer and hanging out with friends is great, There has been times where they have offered me drugs, or invited to participate in a number of other activities that could harm me. Making the right decision and living the gospel has help me feel closer to the savior. I know that our bodies are a gift from god and we need to take care of it as good as possible.Also by following the commandments and learning more and studying more about the gospel. I try to be a great example to my friends around me and try to share my testimony when I have a chance to everyone. I am serving my mission in Las Vegas and love serving the people here. I also live my faith by caring for my parents and my brother and sister.
