Hi I'm Geraldine

I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada; I'm Hispanic; and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in the Utah Salt Lake City South mission. Before my mission I studied at a university for 3 years. My major is Sociology and my two minors are in Political Science and History. I am half Chilean and half Peruvian. I was raised speaking Spanish. I love playing sports such as volleyball, soccer and basketball. I also love to travel and explore all the beautiful cultures this world has to offer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church. My parents are both converts. They learned about the church in Canada. Growing up in the church has helped me throughout my life by making the right decisions and having the right friends. I participated a lot in youth activites, seminary and young single adults activities. I continue to be a member of this church because I have seen the many blessings that come form living this Gospel. I have a wonderful family. We are united and support eachother through the good and hard times. The gospel has brought peace and hapinness to my life. I know that all the answers I need in life can be found in not only the Bible, but also in The Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I grew up in a Spanish ward. My callings in the church before my mission was being a secretary of the Young Womens program. I was also a teacher to the youth in the ward. I taught ages 14-18. The youth are exciting to work with because they are full of life and questions but are willing to learn. I have also helped organize Hispanic cultural events. Members and non members are able to have a good time enjoying eachother's culture. I helped organize the talent show and display the foods from each Hispanic country. I love the church because not only have I been able to learn about the Gospel of Jesus Christ but also about the world, cultures, and people. I have been able to build friendships that will last a lifetime. I decided to serve a mission because of the the love I have for my Saviour Jesus Christ. I want others to be able and receive the beautiful blessings Heavenly Father has to offer.
