I'm from Dominican Republic, I'm a black belt in TaeKwonDo and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy going to the Movies and chating with my friends thru facebook. Because i'm from an island you can imagine how much i love going to the beach, is the best!!! Español (Spanish): Yo soy alguien a quien le gusta divertirse. Me gusta is a pasar el tiempo con mis amigos, pero tambien me gusta conocer nuevas personas que luego seran mis amigos. Me encanta ir al Cine y chatear con mis amigos en Facebook. Porque yo soy de una isla ya te puedes imaginar cuanto me gusta ir a la playa, es lo mejor!!!.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because even though that I was raised in the LDS Church i've develope a testimony on my own of this church, the Church of Jesus Christ!. Español (Spanish): Yo soy un Mormon porque aunque yo creci en La Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Dias yo he desarrollado un testimonio propio de esta Iglesia, La Iglesia de Jesucristo!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a 2 year mission. For the people that maybe don't know what a "mission" is, means that when a turned 19 I had the desire to share the things that I know are true, and now the Lord thru a living Prophet called me to serve in a 2 year mission sharing the Gospel with the people in Tampa, Florida. And i Love it!!!, specialy because I was called to serve in my native language, Spanish, hehehe. Español (Spanish): Ahora yo estoy sirviendo una misión de 2 años. Para las personas que quizas no sepan lo que singnifica una "misión", significa que cuando yo cumpli 19 años tuve el deseo de compartir las cosas que yo se que son verdaderas, y ahora el Señor a traves de un Profeta viviente me a llamado a servir en una misión de 2 años compartiendo el Evangelio con las personas de Tampa, Florida, y me Encanta!!!, especialmente porque fui llamado a servir en mi idioma natal, Español.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Josué
We do it because we know that God is our Loving and Merciful Heavenly Father, but that he's also Just, so we know that we need to be baptize by the proper authority for us to be able to live with him once again, and we know that it wouldn't be Just for those who didn't get the chance to do it in this life for one reason or another, so for something as simple as that reason, we know that in the Temples thru the Preisthood (or authority of God given to men) we can perform those same ordinances for our deceased family members too. What a Blessing, Right?!!!! Show more Show less
