Hi I'm Carlos

I have a wonderful wife and five sons. I love to sing and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of five sons and the husband to a wonderful woman. I love to sing. I like hiking and enjoy the desert. I'm a computer systems administrator working primarily with Unix based operating systems.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the mormon faith by a convert mother and a father who was raised in the mormon faith. The summer I turned 16 I was invited/sent to work with my uncle on his farm. My uncle and his family were not mormon but were devout believers in their church. My cousin, near my same age, would alternate attending the mormon church and his church. I loved going to both churches. His had more youth our age attending and had better activities. I loved the activities and the people but when I started asking questions about what they believed I didn't feel that it had the completeness that what I had been taught in the mormon church. At the age of 19 I served a two year mission for the LDS church. This gave me further opportunities to understand what others believed and what I believed. I learned that God loves all his children and desires to bless their lives. I learned that the Book of Mormon is the word of God every bit as much as the bible is the word of God. I know that God and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and that the Church of Jesus Christ was restored to the earth again. I know that there are living prophets and apostles on the earth.

How I live my faith

I watch over the three buildings that members in our area meet in. I speak in church when asked by my church leaders. I visit with 3 families on a regular basis with my 16 year old son. We take turns leaving a spiritual message in their homes. I sing in church choir. I make sure that the audio/video systems are working when they are needed. I've learned how to web cast meetings and how to get the audio to sound good on the web cast. My family reserves Monday nights for family night. We sing songs, have a short lesson and talk about what is going on in our lives. This gives a chance to connect with everyone.
