Hi I'm Jose

I'm mexican, I'm a college student, I'm mormon.

About Me

I like video games, spending time with my friends to go eat, play sports or just go for a walk on a picnic. I studied in college as an industrial engineer. I tried to be a good student, I enjoy reading articles about technology now, and how I can take advantage of them, and thus be updated with the current world. I like swimming and activities in which the water is very involved.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because throughout my years, by attending church, I learned the things that God wants for us, and also how to achieve that goal. And by growing up, I've realized that what God wants for us will never be a bad thing, as any parent, I know that He wants us to be as He is: perfect, but He is always going to say how to do it and always will be with us to help when we have problems. There are times when you feel you're alone, but the truth is that sometimes we feel that because we turn away from God, He will never get away from us. And thanks to the wonderful plan of God, and the gospel we have now, we know how to solve our problems and achieve happiness that many (or everybody) want to achieve.

How I live my faith

Having been raised in an active Mormon family, I think I grew up having a testimony. I never seriously doubted the truthfulness of the gospel. Like many teenagers, I occasionally questioned things in my mind, but I never felt that the Church wasn´t true. Now I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ by preaching the gospel to the people who don’t know it, and I really like it. As you surely know, there are times when they reject us, but when they accept us and these people learn and obey the commandments and share the experiences they have, I feel a happiness i haven’t felt before and I know that is what i was looking for when I went out to preach the gospel. I really like the church activities and that is thanks to the almost perfect organization of church. I especially like it when it comes to being and doing those activities with other people of your age, which gives you more confidence, courage and desire to be in church. It was this faith that inspired me to serve a mission. It was this faith that inspired me to serve a mission. I knew I needed to serve. But even though I had no serious doubts about the Church, I realized I had to gain a testimony of my own. And now I have it through prayer, the study of the Bible and the Book of Mormon and to obey the commandments.
