Hi I'm Aaron

I live in Mesa, Arizona. I lived in Chile for two years as a missionary. Now I go to college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Aaron. I lived in Santiago, Chile for two years now I live in Arizona. I'm going to college. I love to play baseball, raquetball, ping pong, basketball, and swim.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I've realized that its true. Everything I've learned has been confirmed by God. I know its true and if we live the values that we are taught it brings us more happiness than ever before. I truly know that Jesus Christ died for me and everyone and have personally felt how He has been able to heal me spiritually. This is His church and He is our Savior.

How I live my faith

I just served a 2 year mission in Santiago Chile and now I'm waiting for a calling. Before my mission I loved fulfilling my callings (or assignments) in the church. I was able to give a lot of service to people in need as part of my young men's organization. Also, I helped the young men in our group stay active in the church and serve others. My favorite assignment has been to preach the gospel and serve the people of Chile. It was amazing to see lives change as they accepted the true Gospel of Jesus Christ

How is the Book of Mormon different from the Bible? How did Joseph Smith obtain the “golden plates” or Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is different from the Bible in the sense of who wrote it and where. The Bible was written by prophets and apostles over 2000 years ago near and around Jerusalem. The Book of Mormon was written by prophets from the American continent around 2000 years ago. They both testify of our Savior and are two testaments of the divinity of God's eternal plan of salvation. Joseph Smith obtained the golden plates (Book of Mormon) after receiving a heavenly messenger called Moroni who told him where they were buried. Everyone who sincerely asks God in prayer if this is true can and will know that it is. Show more Show less
