Hi I'm Elisandro

I joined the church two years ago and am serving a mission in the Texas Houston East mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I get asked this a lot so I'll put it on here I'm 6'7" and love to be active. Football, basketball, hiking, camping, mudding in my truck, and hanging out with my best friend and yes my best friend is a girl. All these things I liked to do before my mission. Now Im serving in the Texas Houston East Mission as a full-time missionary. I have 1 year left of full-time service to the Lord ahead of me and I am looking forward to continuing to learn and grow and help others come unto Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because my best friend I met at work was and invited me to church. That's when I realized that something was missing in my life and this was it. My life had no direction, no end goal, I was just cruising through life wondering what to do as it passed by. But the church offered me more. Direction, a goal, a purpose in life. So I continued coming to church and started to take the lessons from the missionaries. Shortly there after on December 10, 2011 I was baptized a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. Now I have a year left on my mission sharing this amazing Gospel that brings me so much peace and happiness with others.

How I live my faith

I go to a young single adult branch and have family home evening (FHE) mondays with a spiritual lesson and games to socialize with the other young adults in the area. Wednesday I have a class with the young single adults called "institute" to further my learning in the church. I am second councelor at the meetings for the young men of the branch. Now I am serving a mission wanting to show others how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can bless their lives and make them happy as it has done in my life.
