Hi I'm Nefi Davila

I love art, running and am currently serving in the Iowa Des Moines mission - and I'm Mormon :)

About Me

I have learned many difficult lessons throughout my life due to my disobedience... but now I know without any doubt that I have my savior, Jesus Christ, to lift me up. Because of His love that I have felt, I have determined to help others by helping them feel His love as well. Everyday I try to enjoy life and LOVE people.

Why I am a Mormon

I may have been raised in the church, but this is not why I am Mormon. In my late-teenage years I decided to find out for myself if the things I had been taught were true. Through difficult and life changing experiences, and a lot of effort on my part, I came to know that God really had always been there waiting for me, but He couldn't do everything for me! Once the consequences of my wrong doings had set in, I decided to change. I chose to accept the invitation that had always been suggested: to read, ponder and pray about the Book of Mormon. After doing this, I felt the love of God and began to see His tender mercies in my life. From these experiences, I can say from the bottom of my heart, and without any doubt, that I know that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith, its translator, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. As well, I know that he was called of God to be the Prophet that restored the same church that Jesus Christ had established when he was on the earth. I know that Jesus is the Christ, that he died and later resurrected so that all of us can have joy in this life and in the life to come. I have received a spiritual witness of all of this things by asking God through sincere prayer. I testify that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is real and has the power to strengthen families, bring peace and happiness to everyone. My testimony is constantly reinforced as I continue to see the blessings of the gospel in my personal life and the lives of my family members.

How I live my faith

One of the best ways i am living my faith right now is as a full time missionary for the church in Iowa Des Moines Mission and i love it because as a missionary we are able to go around and serve where it is needed and do evrything i can to bring the message of the Restoration to all who will listen. I live my faith by doing the best i can to follow my Heavenly Father and to be more Christ like and most importantly follow the Spirit.
