About Me

Amo al Senor! Yo practico snowboard. Me encanta deslisarme en la nieve de las montañas de Utah. Me gusta tocar guitarra con mi hermano. Escuchar musica es gran parte de mi vida. Me gusta andar en motocicleta, pescar, y salir con mi familia! Limpio cabañas y me gusta trabajar duro! A la vez, estoy sirviendo el señor en Kentucky, se llama, la misión, GKLM. I love the Lord! I'm a Snowboarder. I love being in the Utah Mountains riding the powder. I love playing my bass guitar as i accompany my brother playing his guitar! Listening to music is a huge part of my life. I love being in the mountains riding my dirt bike, throwing a line in the water to fish and hanging out with my Fam! I clean cabins year round and love to work hard! At the same time I am serving my mission in Kentucky, called the GKLM Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

Cristo es mi Salvador. Yo sé que la Biblia y el Libro de Mormón son la Palabra de Dios. Sé que José Smith fue un Profeta, así como los Profetas Antiguos. Sé que la Iglesia de Jesucristo hacía restaurado, he estudiado y orado y sé que es verdad. Sé que la obra misional es necesario. Como misionero, he visto las vidas de las personas cambiar y las grandes bendiciones que el Evangelio de Jesucristo puede traer. Christ is my Savior. I know that The Bible and the Book of Mormon are both the Word of God. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet, just as the Prophets of old. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ has been Restored. I have studied and prayed and know that its true! I know that Missionary work is necessary! As a missionary I see the lives of people change and the great blessing that the Gospel of Jesus Christ can bring.

How I live my faith

There are many things that have shaped my faith in the Svaior Jesus Christ! I have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) and I am so grateful for my parents and the great examples they are to me. Scripture Study, Family Prayer and Family Home Evening are some of the things that we have done to help us be closer as a family and build our foundation in Christ. Without the great example of my parents, I wouldn't be here on my mission! My dad and I have a strong relationship with each other. Because I was born with certain food allergies, I have had some near death experiences, but because of the great faith of my parents, I am still here today! My dad on the other hand has had a near death experience as well. He and I were watching over our Lodging Facility in Utah in 2007, when he was shot 3 times at point blank. As I ran for safety, for my life, I found myself helpless! I kneeled down in prayer, pleading with God to allow him live, because I love him, I felt comfort in my heart. I felt the love of God come upon me and I felt that everything would be all right, even though i didn't understand my answer completely in that moment. Without prayer we are nothing! As I have applied the great lessons and answers the Lord has given me in my life, I have come So much closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I know it is possible for Each and Every One of you also. Mosiah 13:20 "Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee." Alma 33:5 "Yea, O God, and thou wast merciful unto me when I did cry unto thee in my field; when I did cry unto thee in my prayer, and thou didst hear me."
