Hi I'm Ché

I live in Southern California. Home of the best weather you can imagine! ohh by the way, I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm 19 years old and love to play basketball! I grew up playing basketball since I could walk and always trying to beat my older brother in b ball. He always won, but when I eventually grew taller and bigger than him, the tables have turned for good! My favorite team of course is the Lakers! (Dont be mad cause the Lakers are the best team in the NBA) HA. I love hanging out with friends, doing adventure type things and going to the beach. I just recently got my mision call and will be serving in Brazil for 2 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this church by my parents. I am in debt to them for there strong belief in this church. I owe them so much by them always teaching me the importance of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Growing up I took the church for granted by relying on my parents example and testimony for a long time. I always felt good at church and had felt the warmth of the spirit but I never knew with out a doubt for myself that this church was true. During High School my desire to know was put aside due to my desire to focus on basketball, friends and High School. It wasnt till I started to prepare for my mission that I read The Book of Mormon with a real intent and open heart to find out if the church was true. When I did this I knelt down in prayer and prayed to my Heavenly Father and asked him if The Book of Moromon is true and if I should serve a mission. I prayed every night for a week straight till church came on sunday. When the song "I Stand All Amazed" was being sung, which is about Christ's atoning sacrifice when he took apon himself the sins of the world. I felt the strongest feeling I had ever felt before. The spirit had touched my heart so strong with its warmth, that I was brought to tears of joy. My mind and heart knew this book was of God. And one small way I could repay Christ was by serving a mission and inviting others unto his gospel. I knew at that exact point that God answered my prayers. I know with out a doubt that this church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and is another testament of Jesus Christ that goes hand in hand with the Bible. I know that anyone can know of the truth of the Book of Mormon if they will read with a sincere heart and ask our Heavenly Father in prayer if it is true. I promise you he will answer your prayer. I know that Jesus Christ died for our sins so we can be forgiven of our sins and feel of those burdens and guilt taken off of ourselves.

How I live my faith

I strive to read my scriptures everyday. From the Bible to the Book of Mormon. Both are great books that help guide me and give me inspiration to do what the Lord asks of us. I attend weekly church service on sundays. Its an awesome feling to learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ and to Feel of his Holy Spirit. The best way I can live my faith is by being an example of the values and beliefs of the gospel of Jesus Christ to others! I am currently a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and will soon be serving in brazil. I will be inviting others to come unto Christ to enjoy this great restored gospel he has given us.
