Hi I'm Andrew

I grew up in deep South Texas. Pioneered the Technology Student Association in my local High School. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Grew up in Edinburg, Texas (about as south as you can go without running into Mexico). Went to the Business, Education, and Technology Academy (also known as BETA) for High School. Participated in the Technology courses there, which led me to my carrer decisions. I also helped to pioneer the Technology Student Association in my HIgh School.  I live on my computer (except when I eat or sleep or go to school). I program websites for a living and study computer science at BYU, Provo. I hope to be accepted to CS's Animation Emphasis. I also helped start BYU, Provo's first official video gaming club. Currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Ogden, Utah.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Church of Latter Day Saints is true. In the scriptures (sorry, not enough time to find a reference right now, but I'll add it later) we are told that God is the same today, yesterday, and forever. I'm a logical person. If God is always the same, his church will always be the same. In the Bible, Jesus organized his Church with prophets and regularly gave those prophets instructions. It only makes sense that, if God is perfect and always the same, we would have the same Church organization that existed in Biblical times. That's a lot of what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is about - following the teachings and instructions Jesus Chirst and our Heavenly Father (aka, God) give us.

How I live my faith

Currently, I'm serving a Mission for the Church. Young men are encouraged to give two years of their life (young women can volunteer as well!) to the Lord, by teaching the Gospel. I decided to do just that, and am currently serving in the Utah, Ogden Mission, which comprises northern Utah, southwest Idaho, and Star Valley, Wyoming.
