Hi I'm Francisco

I was born in Panama, my parents are Chinese. I play soccer and I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ.

About Me

Currently I'm serving a full-time mission in Colorado. I'm planning on studying International Business. I love to longboard and to play sports. I like having a good time with my friends. I'm the second oldest of 4 kids, my parents were not raised with a christian belief. I grew up without a strict religious background. I considered myself agnostic you could say I believe that there was a God but I didn't know for sure. I knew about Jesus Christ but I didn't know why he was important to me personally. I learned the basics by listening to the missionaries and I've gained a testimony of those truth by my own experiences. I've always been naturally curious, knowledge is something that I've always liked. I'm not the smartest guy but I know that I have found my answer. At one point after I was baptized in this church I wasn't very involved with the church. There were things that I couldn't understand but as the time went by I realized that I had a testimony that this is the Church of Christ, the fullness of his everlasting gospel had been restored and that the president of the Church, Thomas S. Monson was the man that God had selected to help us in our quest for happiness, to be back in our loving heavenly Father's presence. Everything I've learned in this Church is centered on Christ and all the revelations, all the talk on Prophet is because God Loves me and he wants me to have guidance from him.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the church by my best friends from highschool. I wasn't looking for a religion or anything but I was looking to be happy. I didn't know what I was searching for to be happy. I experienced a lot of joy and a lot of sad times. But I have found that happiness in the restored gospel of Christ. I continue to follow the Gospel because I've found out for myself that this is the true living Church of Christ and the teachings and principles found in this Church help me understand my Heavenly Father, and know that he is real.

How I live my faith

I do so by sustaining my church leaders. Living my life the best as I can by following the teachings of Christ. By repenting daily, weekly and trying to do better. By sharing what I know with those I love, and those I meet. I'm currently serving a mission in Colorado. I never thought that I would be doing so. I was a convert to the church and didn't think that I knew enough or that I was ready or worthy to teach others. But one thing that I've come to learn is that God is almighty and he has called all of his children to spread the teachings of Christ. I live my faith by helping those around me. By giving a word of encouragement to those who are sad, offering service to those in need.
