Hi I'm Angel Manuel Martinez

I grew up most my life in many places but am residing in Orem,Utah.

About Me

I am a college student currently at BYU and I am loving life.I am studying exercise science with the goal of becoming a pharmacist.I work part time in technical support for a security company as well.I am the only male member of my family.My family hails from Puerto Rico and Ecuador and have a rich history on both sides.I am happily sealed in the temple to my wife Sheila.She is also attending BYU.

Why I am a Mormon

I am am Mormon because the church is true.I was baptized the same day as my mother when I had just turned 8 years old and barely knew of the blessings the lord had in store for me and my family.I learned at a young age the miracle of forgiveness and that we are all not perfect but as long as we try to be better every day the lord will make up the rest.I have a testimony of the gospel and know that my redeemer lives.I have talked to him and he knows me well.I have a testimony of the book of Mormon as being another testament of ChristI know this church is true and wish that whoever reads my words may challenge themselves to see if they can truly come to understand the gospel better.

How I live my faith

I have been blessed to serve the church in many callings.I have had the pleasure of being the youth leader in my home ward back in Cleveland,Ohio where I worked to try to strengthen our youth and make sure they know they have a good friend they can come to at all times.I am currently in the leadership of my area for gospel teaching and it is one of the most rewarding callings to have as you learn something new everyday
