Hi I'm Christopher

I was born in California. I am preparing to serve a mission in El Salvador.

About Me

I love to sing and draw! I like to learn different languages. I've learned some Spanish, German, and a few words or phrases in some other languages. My father's parents were from Portugal and I'd like to go visit there someday. My family is amazing and all my siblings and my parents bring me great strength and encouragement. I love everyone and always look for joy and happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was LDS (Mormon), but that's not why I'm Mormon. I decided to be baptized because I've gotten answers to my prayers through the Holy Ghost's special witness. I have felt and seen God's marvelous works in my life and in the lives of others. I'm so thankful to my parents for introducing me to the true Church of Christ here on this Earth.

How I live my faith

I serve as the 1st assistant in my Priest Quorum. I want to make a difference in the lives of the priests and those in our Ward. I organize service projects whenever possible and we love being able to take the sacrament to those who aren't able to make it to church. I am preparing to serve a mission and will be speaking Spanish and preaching the wonderful truths of this Church to everyone I meet. I'm excited to share the joy and light that this Gospel brings.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is our literal Father in Heaven. He is the Father of our spirits. God created the universe and is a supreme being. He has a plan for each and every one of us here on this earth. He realizes that we are imperfect beings and are going to make mistakes, and yet He still loves us. How wonderful it is to know that our Heavenly Father loves us. He is willing to forgive and wants us to succeed. He has given us gifts and talents to bless the lives of our fellow men and to make this life a little bit easier. God's work and His glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. He sent us to this earth to gain a body and be tested by the adversary. This life will test us to prove if we are worthy to enter into His presence again. I know these words to be true and I leave them with you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen. Show more Show less
