Hi I'm Elvin Galindo

I'm from Guatemala, I'm an uncle, I love the gospel, I like to dance, I like music, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

About me... mmm... well, I am a happy person, I love to be happy and positive all the time, I enjoy to spend time with my friends, I am a really social person, I like to meet new people, I love to spend time with my nephew and my niece and my family as well. Dance and music is my passion, I love the gospel and be an example for others. I love to create things "I am an artist" hahaha kind of... I love to laugh and have good times...

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I receive a lot from Heavenly Father each day. I was born in the church, I was baptized when I was 8 years old and everything was good, but I felt that something was missing... I was doing things without knowing the why. When I turned 13 or 14, I was pondering one night what were the things that Heavenly Father expected of me?, why my friends were having fun with the things that they were doing? Is this the only true church? If I really had a testimony or I was living with the testimony of my parents. I remembered that everyone said "read the book of mormon, ponder and pray about it" I wanted to know the answer of my questions, I wanted to know if living as member of the church was something that would bless me. I took the challenge of Moroni (the last prophet of the Book of Mormon) and read the Book of Mormon, I kneel down and I pray with a sincere heart, with real intent and having faith. My answer came by the power of the Holy Ghost (Galatians 5:22-23) I knew that was TRUE! We have shortcomings, trials, afflictions, temptations but knowing whats true we can overcome those things easily and we can truly trust in the Lord to helps us out. Living the gospel is awesome, I love it!! and because that step of faith that I took, I know that there is a plan for one each of us, I know I am a son of God, I know that Christ lives, He die for me I know that this is the only church that has authority to act in his name, He loves me and I love him. :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example of those that are around me, when I serve others and when I help them to understand that there are more things that Heavenly Father requires from us. Also when I served with love in the things that Heavenly Father asks me to do.
