Hi I'm Edgar

I'm a college student, a missionary, a future engineer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the fourth out of five siblings, a student at Brigham Young University, and currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was born and raised in Mexico but I call Vegas home. I absolutely love music, math, science, swimming, friends, family & FUN! But more than anything, I love my Savior and Redeemer, Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the Church and everything about it is true! Christ has helped me overcome my deep trials, rebellions, and depressions that overwhelmed me. I didn't grow up in the Church, and ever since I came in contact with the Church, I have made a complete turn-around. For the first time, I was happy, truly happy. The reason I now have that happiness is because for the first time in my life, I know and understand the only gate to true happiness: Jesus Christ. How do I know all this? It's just the fact that I read The Book of Mormon, which helped bring me to a knowledge that all these things are true. I know the Church is true, I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God, that Joseph Smith was a chosen prophet of the Lord, and that my Savior and my Father live and that they love me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the teaching and example of our Lord Jesus Christ as much as I can. I'm not perfect, but it's all about trying a little harder to be a little better each day. The more that I try to live the Gospel of Christ, naturally, the happier I am. This testifies to me that living a Christ-like life does bring true happiness. In order to live the Gospel, we follow ALL the commandments, sacrifice, obey the laws and ordinances of the Gospel, and keep our covenants. If we do so, we have God's promise of true happiness. I know it to be true because I've experienced it in my life!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

I know that if you pray to Heavenly Father and ask him if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true, he will give you an answer and the Spirit will testify to you that the Church is True and an indescribable joy will fill you. You will be happy and you will know the truth, all you have to do is ask in sincerity with a humble heart, and you will know the Truth. I promise you. Show more Show less
