Hi I'm Spencer Salinas

I play football, I wrestle, and I'm serving a mission in the Jacksonville, Florida area. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have just recently graduated from high school, and I am currently serving a mission in Ganesville, Florida. I love to play football, and plan on playing after my mission on the Divison-1 level. I am also a wrestler. I placed 2nd at state this past season, and placed 5th at a national tournament last year as well. I love to talk to people about the joy the church has brought to me, as well as how it has blessed me in everything I do. I love my family and how the church brings us together, and I want to share this with everyone, so they might receive these blessings and joy that the church and Christ has brought me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church my entire life, and so my parents have raised me in the church. My mom has been apart of the church her entire life, and my dad was converted to the church when he was 18. So the church has always been something that my family has been involved in. It wasn't until about a year ago, when I was a few months into my senior year that I decided I wanted to learn more about what I had been raised in my entire life. So I did just that. I began to read the Book of Mormon with real intent, and I prayed about what I read. Over the course of about 2 months, I began to notice a change in my life, school and sports were beginning to improve, and I was just happier about life. The church has brought so much into my life, and I know that it can do the same for each and every person that wants to learn more about this church. I know that you can find peace and love and direction as you begin to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it, just as I have done.

How I live my faith

Being a missionary, I have the ability to talk to everyone who is willing to listen to the message I have to offer about our church. I have had the opportunity to do service and show others that not only do I want to teach people, I want to serve them and just help out as much as I can.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Spencer Salinas
When missionaries talk to you, they will teach about how Jesus Christ's church has been restored on the Earth today. They will also answer questions that you might have about the church and life. They will teach you about our Heavenly Father's plan for us, and what we need to do on this Earth to return back to him. Show more Show less
