Hi I'm Leo Cortes

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a city boy born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. I am 18 years old and I just graduated high school. My hobbies are playing trumpet,playing videogames, and watching sports. I am a pretty much laid back guy with a kind heart and a guy who dislikes confrontation. I am a straight A student and a musician. I am a firm believer of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Everyday I try my hardest to live righteously, that I may be like my savior as well as help other come closer to Christ by befriending them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that there is a god, our heavenly father and I believe he created the world and created this church so that we could live happily forever after. Some people just live life and don't want to worry about something so deep. I do though, I want to know if there's something else to live for after life on Earth is done. With me being a Mormon I feel so much comfort and happiness I feel that what the church teaches is true. There are so many people I could count on and so many friends I have in my ward. I just feel its where the lord wants me to be.

How I live my faith

Very soon, I am will be heading out to serve as an LDS missionary! The gospel has blessed my life in so many ways and I have a strong desire to share it to others. So for two years, I will be serving in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania mission. I believe Heavenly Father will bring those who need guidance in my path. I know this will be an experience that will allow me to grow. I also feel God gives me this calling so that I may be a leader one day in my life, whether its with being a head of a family, or a boss of a company I feel the lord is guiding me to become a strong leader
