Hi I'm Arturo

I'm from Dallas and I'm in the Texas Lubbock mission, like to camp and wrestle and i love to making people smile and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Arturo, but people call me Arty for short. I love to wrestle. I started wrestling when I was 14 years old and I have loved it ever since. Its a part of who I am now, if I ever have the opportunity to wrestle, I will. If there is one thing I love to do, its play the guitar. In high school I played with my friends in a rock band. Everyone wants to be a rock star now days, right? Since then my goals and dreams have changed a little. Now days I just like to pick up the guitar, play some songs, or make up my own. Life is like making up a song, you decide the pace, beat, tempo, lyrics, and you always hope that it has an uplifting and good effect on everyone around you.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has blessed me and my family in so many ways. My parents have always been such great examples to me as to how I should live my life. Even tho I didn't really listen to them until I realized that i could not use my parents testimonies as my own. I wanted to know everything I've been taught since birth was really true. I didn't know for myself if they were true or not, I kinda just went through the motions. My parents have had there struggles but they were immovable with their faith in Jesus Christ. Honestly their faith is the reason why my family is still together. I wanted that, that unmovable faith. one of my friends asked if i had a testimony and i was secretly angry at my self when i was completely honest when i said "no". I wanted to feel good again i wanted to have peace. so i did what my teachers of my youth have told me time and time again. search though out the scriptures and ponder them well, pray with out stopping though out the day every day and come to church with an open heart. it wasn't too long after that i saw myself change to that happy person i was again. I became like my parents and now in my mission i have seen myself grow even more. God is my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ is his son. I just can't see my life without the gospel the Gospel of Jesus Christ. this has been some thing that has opened my eyes to the nature of God and his love for me. He know who you are personally by name. "For God so loved the world that he give his only begotten son". The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the only thing that has given me peace and joy in my life. I testify that there is no type of drink, entertainment , or drug that can give you this great feeling that i have felt when i knew with out a doubt that God is real and loves me that i have a redeemer who's name is Jesus the Christ in whom i can lean on him for help no matter what or who I'm dealing with. this gospel is like the air I breath, its something I just can't live without.

How I live my faith

I love to serve in my community whenever I can. I have been involved a lot in scouting, and I have helped serve as a youth group leader in trying to help our youth get more involved in fun uplifting and wholesome activities. I love to help organize fun events for scouting or for youth groups in the church. No one is perfect but that doesn't mean I can't try
