Hi I'm Anamaria

I am a full time missionary on Temple Square. I love my family and I love my mission! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been part of the church since I was very little. I have an amazing family, my mom and dad, my two brothers and my sister. I was born in El Salvador but I have grown up here in the United States. I have a brother who is serving a mission and I too will soon be serving a mission. I enjoy doing lots of things like cooking and baking, reading, and crafts.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ and because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church on this earth today. I believe in the Plan of Happiness that the Lord has provided for us and that our families can truly be together forever if we remain worthy and follow the Commandments of God. That is of huge comfort to me because my family is the most important thing to me alongside with Christ and His gospel. I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that the prophet Joseph Smith was called of God and that through him the Lord restored his gospel on the earth. I know we have a living prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, that receives revelation from God and guides us in these latter days. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought infinite happiness to my life. I have been blessed greatly. I know we can return with our Heavenly Father and have eternal life and be with our families forever if we do our part in this life to follow Christ, live the commandments, and love one another.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following Christ. I will serve a mission and I am currently servingas secretary in the primary presidency of my branch and also music conductor in sacrament meeting. I love interacting with the children every week and love teaching them about Jesus Christ.
