Hi I'm Marvin Ruano

I grew up in Guatemala. I love being a full time missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Guatemala. I was catholic my whole life until I found the LDS church and that made me know the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I like to play soccer and ride and raise horses. I am a full time missionary serving in New Jersey. I love to help people to know the plan that God has for each of us, and invite them to come to Christ. I am so grateful for the great happiness that the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. I'm a member of His church because I know that it was restored by the prophet Joseph smith. I was catholic my whole life and one day i desired to ask God, what my purpose is, and pray about it. When I found this church I knew for sure that this is the answer, because He really answer our prayers and know I am follwer of His gospel, because make me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as a full time missionary in the Church. My day to day life is completely centered around the Gospel and sharing it with others. I know the blessings that the Gospel can bring into a person's life and want to share that joy with others. When I complete my mission, I plan on staying fully active in the church and serving in my ward back home in Virginia, and continuing to put God first in my life.
