About Me

I've always been the kind of person that was quiet and not very many words, but I like to be always with people I grew up in a family where each one of us had very unique talents and abilities. They helped me enjoy and define every moment in my life. Surprisingly each one of our talents are related, despite we have beeb always separate in distance we are close in the things we do. I've always liked tech gadgets, and on doing things work better. Dont get me wrong I am not a nerd. I am decided to take that stereotype of all mechanical Engineers. I like working with people and decided to travel and help communities be more efficient in their living. I love dancing almost every kind of music, not good at it but it helps to get that stress out of work. Hiking or biking in the nature is something that crave doing in the future. I Have a dream of travelling to Germany because is where their good at of what i want to study. so I am at the university in USA to gain that opportunity. I see myself having my family around there and being with the people I am close.

Why I am a Mormon

Since i have been member of the Church all of my live, i felt it be part of Me when I was on my early teenage years, when I actually find out the jewels that i always carried with me. The Gospel of Christ. Trials come in your life when you are doing well, or you need to turn to god more abundantly. That happen to me. At my school community over there at mexico I was the only member of the church so someone could imagine all of the adversity i overcome. Specially because in that moment i wasn't close to the church. I thought it was a nice place, but it was sometimes boring. When i started to notice that something was missing i started to ask myself questions that concerned my soul, because I really wanted to be with my family forever. I asked god what should i do and tell me where should i go. Things started to fell on their place, I fell a stronger support from my family, friends from the church invited me to more activities. I started ti be with better influences. I Started to feel more the spirit and if i can describe that feeling is a sense of comfort, joy, a lasting peace. from there my desire to serve a mission and share it with others increased. so i went. I got to say that we still make a lot of mistakes, specially me more than anybody, but now i know the process i have to take to go out of that problem. We go to the church to make promises or covenants with god, but we go home to keep them. I know that this church is true, is the true church of Jesus Christ, Restored by the prophet Joseph Smith. Christ is our only redeemer and savior. and the Book of Mormon testifies of him. and some one that abide those precepts would get closer to God than anything else in the world. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I have been member of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints all of my life and every cherished moment that i've had was in there. I Havent had many callings in my life to serve directly to some people, but one i have enjoyed the most is serving as a full time missionary in California. Full families have being the ones that I've enjoyed teaching because i get to see how the gospel of Christ works in each one of them. One of the best miracles I've seen in my life is how i got to be the kind of man that God expects of me. since i got baptized I started a process that every day I would be nicer every day, I would help someone every day, I would cook for someone. Service would be something that could define me, I find my joy seeing someone else in need recovering from any situation he haas been. I'm not a perfect person but i work everyday to make my self a little bit better.
