Hi I'm Marlon

Originally from Honduras. Raised in Sunny Florida. I love Soccer, Beach, and my Family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22 years old. Recently returned from serving a LDS mission. I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I am currently a student at Brigham Young University-Idaho (an LDS school). I am majoring in Computer Engineering. I was raised LDS, but always around a Diversity of Religions. I love helping people. One of my favorite things is to help others see how truly valuable they are, and how Heavenly Father sees them. =] I love playing soccer, I played Goalkeeper growing up in my High School team and other teams. I can truly say I almost breath, eat and sleep soccer. I enjoy every aspect of that game. I love running too. In the mornings I go for long runs 6-8 miles long =]. Theres nothing better than running free, with an iPod in you ear. I love the beach too, thats probably my favorite thing about my home town =] how close i live to the beach! Mainly of all you should know that I love Jesus Christ! And i am very thankful for all that he has done for me and continues to do for me.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon is because again, I love Jesus Christ. Since the beginning of time he has called prophets to teach us the way to follow. He loves us so much, again in our Day he called another prophet, Joseph Smith, to restore his precious gospel truths. The more I Follow his Gospel the more it deepens my testimony of its truthfulness. Heavenly Father wants all of his children to be happy, thats why he sent his son Jesus Christ, through him anything that makes us unhappy can be fixed. I have no doubt of this, he has healed me too. I've seen it heal the lives of so many others too. I cannot deny it, and I must Follow it because the spirit compels me to follow! I know the Book of Mormon is true, and that our living Prophet, Thomas S. Monson, is a prophet of God. Mainly though, that Christ Lives, and he heals! I Promise! =]

How I live my faith

Well I believe I live my faith like any other mormon. I love serving people, just like our savior would have us do. There is no greater satisfaction than serving those around you. I love telling people about Christ, and his love and healing power towards everyone. I pray a lot for his guidance. And he has definitely given me his guidance specially these past couple of weeks in which I am trying to decide what course to take in my life. I have a couple responsibilities in my local church. I currently teach a sunday school class. This consists of teaching doctrines found in Bible as well as the Book of Mormon to others in the congregation. It is a great responsibility. I feel like I learn and grow so much from it. It helps me to fulfill one of my greatest desires as well, which is to uplift those around me.
