Hi I'm Victor

I love the challenges I face in life to continue to grow, i love to bowl & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Victor. For a living I'm still trying to figure out what lies ahead for me. As of right now I'm about to attend school. I'm also jumping from job to job to see what I would like to do for a career that I enjoy doing. I play sports for fun like rugby, football, basketball, bowling, pretty much everything to keep me active and to get some exercise in. So if you guys want to come challenge me I'm down! I love to compete especially if I'm the underdog and then its up to me to prove myself worthy, especially basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

As a member of the LDS faith i was born into it. Unfortunately a lot of people believe since you were raised a certain way or in a certain faith, they believe that people have no choice but going that certain way. I know that God has put everyone in their own situation for his own purpose that sometimes we wont know. As for me being born in the church was a huge blessing! I've had my ups and downs with the faith and still have question on whether if this is really Christ's true and living church and gospel. So growing up in the faith you always hear " I know the church is true" and for me I've said that thousands of times. And some of those times where I said I know the church is true, It wasn't 100% me believing that. And I truly had to know if this was all true or was it just something that sounded good. I wasn't going to go far just saying it just to say it, or just cause I was raised that way. So what it came down to is that i needed to know and i started to read and pray about The Book of Mormon. To really see if everything was true. At that time I haven't prayed that hard for anything a week passed by and I still hadn't received an answer. One night I decided to switch it up a little and to see if anything would change so I asked God a specific question, and where I started to read, it was talking about what i asked God. so i was tripping out. Then I read over verse 17 in Mosiah Chapter 3. Soon after I finished that scripture I received my answer! I felt so much peace and confirmation that "the church is true", I was shocked that my questioned got answered. I believe no matter what situation, what way you were brought up in any circumstances we all can know for sure through the Holy Ghost if this church is truly run by Christ himself. And I know it is True cause of the answers I get from the Holy Ghost day to day

How I live my faith

As a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints the biggest commitment that I have promised to God was to help those in need and to be a brother to everyone. I love to meet new people and really to show how much I care for everyone no matter what their back round is. The biggest thing is being a friend to my neighbors. And just showing them who I really am and that we're not that different from each other. Every month as members I have the chance to visit some of the members of the church in the community. Super super simple I go with another person & we get to know the family a little more and visit, talk about the family, work, life and what ever else is going on, and after or before we share a spiritual thought to help them of course come to feel our saviors love. Its a great way to get to know the members of the church around you. As we come closer to our heavenly father we also come closer as a body of His church.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Victor
Life on earth is hard. Everyday I get challenged, and when I feel like I've had a good day, It seems like the next day just gets harder. Our life and purpose in this world is a test. God has given us our own free will. All of us have the responsibility to go through life and really we only have @ choices with everything we do. Choose good or bad, positive or negative. Everything we go through even the small things either helps us or they don't or even brings us down. It gets hard and confusing and that I'm happy to have God and Jesus Christ to help me out with big and small decisions. Everything we go through gives us experience to help us out in the life to come! Show more Show less
