Hi I'm Eric

I grew up in Kansas City. I play soccer and violin for my university's soccer team and orchestra. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of six, including myself, being the oldest, with three younger sisters. I have played soccer all my life along with the violin. Currently I am a college student playing both at the university on scholarships in both organizations. I have been called to serve in the California Carlsbad Mission. I am half Honduran from my mother and half Mexican on my fathers side. I have lived away from home since I was 14 for school purposes in many places like Hawaii and Mexico. I am proud of my culture and enjoy to see them with my loving family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the church that gives me the fullness of the gospel. I am happy when I am apart of this church and throughout my life I have been happiest when I have been active in the church. I was inactive at one point and decided to live my life away from the church because I was indifferent and wanted to experience other things. I was blessed to have my Heavenly Father put certain people and things in my life in order for me to change what I was doing wrong, even when I "had it all". It amazes me how my Heavenly Father put everything right in my way and everything fell back into place where I felt happy and was able to grow a testimony of the gospel. It has not been easy at all, with my Heavenly Father working as hard with me, the temptations and opposition has been equally as strong. But this gospel has given me happiness and the strength to overcome them through His Son's atonement, whereas I want to share this happiness with others. I know that this is our Heavenly Father's church and that this gospel is the fullness of His gospel . The gospel and our Heavenly Father has helped me answer all the questions that I have in His time. I invite anyone to come and learn of this beautifully restored gospel to know the fullness of our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus the Christ!

How I live my faith

I have been a member all my life and have served in various callings like being the president of the sunday school class. I love to attend church activities with friends and try and invite as many friends as I can. I have organized events like latino night for the church and play the violin at church where I love to invite anyone to come and here my talent that is for others.
