Hi I'm Moroni Marquez

I'm from Mexico. I love music. I am serving as a missionary in the Japan Kobe Mission. I'm a Mormon, and I love it.

About Me

I LOVE music. I play piano, violin and sax. Music is a way of getting relaxed and pondering about things happening in my life. I am serving as a Missionary of this church. I was called to serve to Kobe Japan. My brother also served as a missionary for this church. The way I get good feelings when I'm sad is by reading the Book of Mormon. It is always a consolation, it brings me peace. I am a big dreamer. I think having big goals and big dreams in this life can make the difference on how much life can be enjoyed. I love sports of any kind. I love talking to people and creating new acquaintances. I making people laugh. I think that if you have the opportunity to make a person`s day better, it is your responsibility to do it. Laughing is prime. That`s the way to enjoy life.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of this church, I've grown living according to the norms and standards of our church. However, I am not a member just because my parents told me so. I'm a member because I really love this church, the things that we learn have helped me throughout all my life and everything that I've learned is so perfect, that there is no chance to doubt about it. I am an LDS member because I know that our Heavenly Father lives, and that he listens to our prayers. He loves me and I love Him. I'm grateful for the blessings that I've received throughout my life. I know that when we are humble, and when we recognize that everything that we have is because of our Heavenly Father, He blesses us. I love being a Mormon, it is a blessing to know about this church and being happy by leaving according to the commandments that our Heavenly Father has given us. This is a church of love, and whoever has a doubt about it, I invite him to pray and ask the Lord if this church is true. I truly know that our Heavenly Father will answer your prayer by the Spirit, and that you will know that this is really the church of Jesus Christ, the only true church on the Earth. I know that my Heavenly Father lives, and that Jesus Christ is our Savior, and I love them.

How I live my faith

Right know I am a missionary, which means that I invite others to come unto Christ. This has helped me to get to know people and their necessities and to try to help them with whatever the may need. This has also helped me to become more like Christ, by thinking about other people, instead of thinking about myself. During my life I have come to understand that when you care about other people, it is then when you find the true happiness. Love is necessary in this life, and only when we strive to love others is when we can understand a little bit better the great love that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father have for us.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Moroni Marquez
A testimony is the foundation of being a member of the Church. It is believing in those things that we learn and being immovable. A testimony is the way a person can stay strong and be sure of the love that our Heavenly Father has for him. The testimony is gained by knowledge, but kept in our heart by the power of the Spirit.
