Hi I'm Rj Torres

I grew up in Salt Lake City and parts of Southern California. I enjoy working on computers. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

My names Rj and I like doing cool stuff with my friends. I'm currently serving a mission in the Washington D.C. South area. Before I arrived on the mission I spent time going to the movies and playing lots of video games. I worked at Gamestop for a long period of time so I know gaming pretty well. I bought some longboards with some buddys on a trip to San Diego and since then Long Boardings really become a passion for me. It gets pretty hot to do in the day time so we bust out our long boards at night and ride the streets in the Valley. I moved to Utah when I was a little bit older and thats where I went to school as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because the gospels changed the course of my life in a good path. I'm a very impulsive person so the choices I would've made without having Jesus Christ's example would've led me down a different road that wasn't filled with the kind of wholesome lifestyle that I wanna have today. I'm very interseted in raising a good family and the principals of the church really focus on familys being raised well and living together for eternity. To me having a greater purpose in this life as apposed to just playing video games and hanging out with friends means alot. I think about the afterlife and it would just firghten me because it was so mysterous and I didn't know what would happen with heaven or hell or anything. But now I'm completly at peace with whatever happens because I know if I'm doing the things that the lords commanded me that whatevers gonna happen is gonna happen. And whatever happens will be in my benefit because the lord has to live up to his promises of obediance.

How I live my faith

I try to help people out with their problems like the gosples helped me out in mine. Once you study the scriptures for a while you get a real feal for the ways that the lords helped out the people back in the day and that it's really not that different from our generation. We still suffer from alota the same trials such as greed, envy and even personal stuff like self doubt and comparing ourselves and things like that. And the principals that are taught in the scriptures can help us just as much because their the words of god.
