Hi I'm Rett Cortez

I am the oldest of 4 boys in my family. I will be serving in the Brazil Curitiba Mission from May 1st 2013- May 2015.

About Me

I am 19 years old and I have lived in California almost all of my life. I live with my 3 younger brothers and my parents. I have played sports since I was about 4 years old with baseball being my favorite. I played baseball at Chabot College last year and decided to take this year off so I could serve a mission. In December I was called to serve in the Brazil Curitiba Mission starting May 1st of 2013. I can honestly say I have never been more excited/nervous about anything in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know this is the only true church on the earth today. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and has a plan and purpose for everything that happens in my life. I know that

How I live my faith

The church is the main focal point in my life. I try my best to choose the right every day and to live the way our Lord Jesus Christ did. In high school, I somehow woke up in the morning to go to Seminary before school so I could learn more about the Gospel. I go to church every Sunday and try to actively participate in all of the lessons that are taught to me. As I said before I have decided to go on a mission so I can do my best to let others know about this wonderful church that I know is true.
