Hi I'm Kalob

I am a half Peruvian and part American. I grew up in Idaho. I am a Christian. I am a Morman. I am a Son of God.

About Me

I am a very enthusiastic and athletic kind of guy. I love playing sports and being competitive. Haha I think most of it comes from my Dad's side of the family. My father is from Peru. He was born in Callao. He grew up catholic and so did my grandparents. They were introduced to the gospel through a blessing my father recieved as a child. That blessing not only save his life, it changed his family's lives. They moved to America when he was very young. Later in life after serving full time a Mission in Honduras, he met my mother at a dance. They were engaged two weeks later. I was born a year from then and have grown up with the most exceptional parents. I am not a father myself yet. I am the oldest in my family. I always need to be excersing because my body likes it. I love being out doors and just having fun. Fun is a part of life and I enjoy life a lot.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons. I have had many reoccuring moments in my life that have time and time again proven the truthfullness of the gospel. The first time I truly knew this was the church for me was when I turned 12. Now, many people assume that since I grew up a mormon that I would just follow the foot steps of my parents and never think for myself. No, I loathed the very thought of doing things without my own thoughts on such. I never did anything unless I felt I should. My parents have taught me well, but when I was 12 I questioned the very things they had taught me. It was my right to question them too. I needed to know for myself if I was doing the right thing for me. I wasn't just about to throw my salvation out the door! No, I decided to read the Book of Mormon. By myself. I wouldn't get help, I wouldn't allow anyone to try and convince me of the meaning of the book. This was something I had to do myself. So, I read. I finished in 3 days. I sat in my room and pondered the last chapter of the Book. Moroni Chapter 10 verses 4-5. So I did. I knelt down and said a prayer. I said it simply, and as sincerely as a 12 year old could. I felt peace. In my mind I had never doubted the church or is precepts. I am a true believer. I love God and will do anything I must to do his will.

How I live my faith

Hm... I live my faith. I guess that's the best way to put it. I very strongly believe in the church and it's teachings. I am not the kind of person that takes things like this likely. I will not do live a certain way without living it 110% daily. I have had a lot of callings in the church. One I have right now is that I am a home teacher. I home teach 6 families. I have to different comanions, and I love and appreciate both. I am also going to serve a mission for the church in this coming year. I have never been so excited to go on a mission. It is definitely something I have truly wanted to do all my life. I love my community. I live in a fairly large city. My neighbors are truly fantastic. I have no problem with raking leaves or mowing the lawns of the elderly near me. I care so much for them and their well being.
