Hi I'm Xavi Maestas

I live in Murray, Utah. I'm going to be serving in the Peru Lima East Mission in March 2013

About Me

I'm 18 and I received my mission call in November of 2012. I graduated in 2012 and attended the University of Utah for a semester before receiving my call. I like to play sports, especially soccer and i wrestled and ran track in high school. I want to make video games as they are also one of my hobbies. I have been waiting to leave for my mission for 4 months now.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were converted to the church when I was 4 years old so i have grown up in the church. When I was younger I didn't like to go to church and didn't really participate. As I got older though I became more interested in the teachings and wanted to know for myself that the church was true, not because my parents told me it was. So i began going back to church and realized the blessings of the gospel and the significance of it's teachings. As I was nearing mission age I was still not sure whether or not it was a good choice for me. But once the age change happened for a mission I knew that it was a sign for me to get out on a mission and preach the gospel that I had been so lucky to have learned since I was little.

How I live my faith

I have recently been ordained an elder and gone through the temple due to my mission. Previous to that I was the 2nd counselor in the Priests quorum. I have always been happy to do the service projects and participate in young mens.
