Hi I'm Victor.

I grew up in Puerto Rico, I have a 24/7 smile, I am a college studyholic, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Victor! I grew up in Puerto Rico. I graduated there, and after I graduated I decided to come to the U.S. to make a better life for myself. I am going to college here.. studying to become a physical therapist, and I love it! I can't get enough of school and all that comes with it. I love watching cartoons, playing video games, techno music, and going for a nice run in the morning. I hate losing in video games, when my neighbors are playing loud music, and when my cats wont be quiet at night! In the future, I want to travel across the world. California, Argentina, Japan are some of my favorite places that I want to go. And someday, I want to be a husband, dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather! And I am a super hero.

Why I am a Mormon

Why did I decide to be a mormon? Before I met the missionaries I was always feeling frustrated, I had no time for myself, and I felt like I was going crazy. I went to a very good friends house, and I met the missionaries there, they began to teach me, and I realized, and felt regret for how much I left God behind. But as I met with the missionaries, I felt myself coming closer to God. After I met with the missionarires, I felt things I had never felt before, and I thought : "Why don't I give this a try". The missionaries challenged me to read the Book of Mormon, I did and I found things that made sense to me, and the scripture answered all sorts of questions. It basically explained the purpose of my life, and my mission on this earth. As I visited church, and became a part of it, i felt myself maturing and growing up spiritually! I could literally feel the negative leaving, and the positive flowing into my life. The day of my baptism was liberating, all the bad things in my life were gone, I was born again, and I only felt freshness. It was like a shower to my heart. The best Sunday ever, I wanted to run around and give everyone hugs. I am pretty much becoming a better person since I joined this church. I want to say alot of things, but pretty much all these powerful feelings that I felt came from God. Ever since my baptism, I know I have someone with me, comforting me, giving me advice, and guiding my every step. Prayer has changed everything, it can fix everything! This gospel has taken so much of my stress away. I know that it is because of Jesus Christ that I have been able to change my life, without him I wouldn't be here, and when the time comes, I hope to be by his side by doing the things he would have me do now.

How I live my faith

I am a loving person, and I try my best to help those that are around me with all of the problems that they are facing. I do this by trying my hardest to share the gospel with them. I want them to feel the same peace and happiness that I have found. I read my scriptures and pray, and it gives me the strength that I need to get through all my stresses.
