About Me

i'm the oldest of 4 and i love my family and i love spending time with them. i love basketball even though i'm not really good at it, i also love downhill biking. i like to hang out with my friends, go to concerts, play some sports or just stay at home and cook something or watch a movie. i also love to escape to the country side, go fishing or hunting with my step dad or uncles. i know spanish and english. i love reading a good book, and sit by a fireside. i love music even though i'm not a musician, i have friends who are though, and i love to see them play.

Why I am a Mormon

i come from two strong religious families, on my mom's side we are one of the first families to convert to our faith in the city that i live. i guess that my dad passing away when i was only two months old lead to me being born and raised in the "mormon church". many people would think that i'm not a convert. when i grew up i knew no other reality than this religion, i guess that helped me to stay out of troubles, but it didn't helped me to build my own testimony. it wasn't until i was 16 and i went surfing with a few friends from church that my true conversion begun. that day me and one of my friends dad almost died on the ocean, and being that close to the edge of my life made me wonder if this is what i wanted for my life so... i prayed. that was the first time of my life that i really prayed, and the answer came, it wasn't something like a lighting or like an angel speaking to me, but it was the best feeling that i've ever felt my entire life, and the best part is that i still can feel that, is something you cannot describe or put in words but it helps me know that God loves me and that Jesus is my Savior and Redeemer, that this is the restored church of Jesus Christ and he leads it; i know with all my heart that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God, called to restore his church; i know that there's a living Prophet and that families can be together forever; i know i will see my father again, and i know with all my heart and soul that Jesus lives and he will come again.

How I live my faith

i've served as a youth leader for almost two years, i was a teacher and also served as a coordinator of missionary work on my community. now i'm serving a two year mission to bring more people closer to our Savior
