Hi I'm luis arellano

I'm a Mormon, serving at this time in the Mexico Oaxaca Mission, I was born in Cancun Q.Roo I love meeting and talking to people.

About Me

Well I like to play fotbool and also a bit of basketball too, I´m glad to meet people and talk about the gospel of Jesus Christ and how it has helped me in my life, before leaving on a mission I finished high school and when I get home to continue finishing a career school of gastronomy. I like to cook and make desserts hehe, I'm very good at making flan(custard dessert), I like to try the desserts that I make and the desserts that other people make also. All of my family are members of the church but we haven't been sealed yet, but its going to happen! I was 8 years old when I was baptized and have attended church since then. I live in Cancun Q. Roo was born there and have lived there since I was born lol, my family is made up my father, mother and 6 brothers and sisters, I am the second to last.

Why I am a Mormon

Well my family met the missionaries when I was 6 years old and when I was 8 years old they baptized me with my Sister named Jasmine and from that day on I have been a member of the church. and I know I'm in the ture church because when I was 15 I prayed to God and asked if this was true and received a response from the prayer, I didn't see an angel or things like that but I felt that is true through the Holy Ghost and now I am I sharing this message that is true with other people, and I like it very much and I am happy to know this gospel. At first I did not understand very well but now I know it's true. I know God answers our prayers and that He loves us and helps us be better day by day and I know that this church is true and that Joseph Smith actually saw God and Jesus Christ the son, I have no doubt that and everyone can know if they do what Joseph Smith did and I pray and ask God, because he knows all things and answers our prayers through feelings such as peace, love, patience, among other feelings we can feel in our hearts that this is true.

How I live my faith

One thing that I like to do is to serve within the church as much as possible, I like to do service and see how people change their lives too. I like to help my family in the home and to be with my brothers that brings me joy, like being able to serve my community giving of my time and do things for the neighbors so they can trust me, I enjoy helping older people, they are very good and they know good things and can help us in our life, it is very good in truth. In the church there is endless service and that's good because it prepares us to be better people in the society and I like that.
