Hi I'm Francisco

I was born in El Salvador and grew up in Mesa, Arizona. I am a father of 6 wonderful children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born in El Salvador and raised in Mesa, Arizona USA, I grew up as one of 7 kids. It is no surprise that I am now a father 6 amazing children ages 4 - 14. I look forward to family time and date night, it is what we do. Our family Motto is Family First, and we work hard at it. I am a fan of the outdoors, sports and life.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (mormon church) in El Salvador. Their's is a journey of faith, a true pioneer story. I learned a great deal from them as a young boy, however, as I grew into a man, I came to know for myself that the gospel as taught in this church was true. I came to know that the power of God on earth to bind families forever and bless and to heal are found here. I came to know that the Lord's Gospel has been restored to this earth, with all of the keys and powers that once existed in the Church of Jesus Christ of olden times. The peace and joy that I feel as I follow these teachings is a confirmation of their validity and I know that the power of God found herein is real.

How I live my faith

My life is full of fantastic experiences. I live each day surrounded by 6 wonderful children and loving wife. I serve them and in that I find great joy. In the church, I have been asked to teach and mentor the youth, this is also a deeply rewarding experience. The opportunity to help mold lives is a sacred privilege and an honor. I have grown to love these young people, these future leaders. I cherish the time I spend in their service. Family is central to the eternal plan of our loving Heavenly Father, it always has been and it always will be. I can be grateful to my loving parents for their examples of of love and faith. It is my hope that I can continue working everyday to raise a righteous posterity unto the Lord.
