Hi I'm Elder Brigham Rodriguez

I am from California. I am curently on a mission in Las Vegas. I love my family and love serving the lord. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a good person and I have made some wrong decisions in the past. I have learned how to resolve those things, By faith and repentance we can be forgiven of our sins i know it to be true i have done it and you can too. Both my mom and dad are Mormon and My dad is from Guatemala city Guatemala and served a mission for 2 years, and my mom is from suchitoto El Salvador. I like to hang out with friends and family doing fun things. I am curently a missionary and doing all i can to help the people in Las Vegas.

Why I am a Mormon

Well I never had any doubts about the church and the church is a great place to be and I'm glad to be apart of the lords church. I was never the first in my family to be a Mormon, my dad is the "Pioneer" of the family and if it wasn't for him we in our family wouldn't be Mormon right now. Also is it wasn't for him serving a mission I wouldn't have made the decision to go out and do my own mission which will change my life for the better. I just wanted to bare my testimony that I know we are in the real church the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints and we all have a work to do we are all here for a mission that we all are here for our own choices and how we need to be like him in order to live with him again. We are not all perfect we are all different and we all have a mission and that mission is to go and live with our heavenly father. We are all his children and we have to make him happy so that we can be happy for ourselves. I know that Joseph smith was the true prophet of god and that he saw the father and the son in the grove, and restored the gospel again on this earth and for us to learn. And I just like to leave this with you in the name of the father the son and the holy ghost amen.

How I live my faith

When ever we have a church activity for service like Mormon helping hands, baptisms for the dead, fundraisers for the youth or anything that's involved with the church and the community I will do and I have done a lot of those things even to go out with the missionaries and do visits with them. We all have to give a sort of type of service we are not here to just learn about the gospel we are here for a purpose and that is to be giving service is whatever matter or form we can and if we can do that we will be happy when we do it. i also live my faith by serving others.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Elder Brigham Rodriguez
Most people would refer to us as a cult and that we don't believe in Jesus Christ and how everything we believe in is wrong. We are a Christian religion but we are a different type so I think that's where we get confused and that we are false witnesses. Most religions don't have things and do some of the practices that we would do on a weekly basis Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Elder Brigham Rodriguez
being a mormon is great. i feel really good about who i am as well as where i am. i have a understanding of life and that brings be great joy. understanding the true nature of christ alows me to become the best i can. knowing that i am growing and learning to be like him is what our father in heaven wants for me. it is part of the plan that we are all a part of. being a mormon alows me to see the good in every situation i am in. as a mormon i focus on living high standards. these standards are what motivates me to do good and become a better son of god. being a mormon is great.
