Hi I'm Anthony Ojeda

Born and raised in North Carolina! I got baptized on March 30, 2013!

About Me

I am 19 years old and trying to figure out what is next! I love working and traveling. I enjoy making people laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I never thought that I would join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have always been curious about God and who he was since I was 5 years old. My parents never told me about "God" or "Jesus". People from diffrent churches would come around my neighborhood and invite all the children to church! I always went to events! I loved it and that is when I first discovered God. I got older and at the age of 10 I started attending a Pentecostal Chruch. I attended for 4 years and stopped going to Church COMPLETLY. For 2 years I was not active in any Church. My life was horrible, depressing, lonley, and boring. I later went back to the Pentecostal Church at the age of 16 by myself. I loved going to Church but I was not living a "Christ Like" life. I started getting myself together and tried to find my place in the Pentecostal Church but nothing seemed to happen. I was curious about "mormons" and wanted to know more about what this "religion" was about; for 7 months I was uneducated on who mormons were. Until I discovered my school friend was MORMON! I was shocked and wanted to know more. So, she invited me to an event for the youth. I went expecting all sorts of craziness but arriving I actually had a wonderful time! My friend kept inviting me to events. I assured her that I did not want to become a "Mormon" I just wanted to learn more about who "Mormons" were. She respected that. She then set up an appointment for me with the missionaries. They helped me clear up a whole lot of my questions. I did not want to leave the Pentecostal Church but I also was really sure that the Mormon Church was TRUE! I was stuck. I had to make a decission. I prayed, read The Book of Mormon and asked a lot of questions! God decided for me to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints! I am glad I joined the Church. I have a peace and joy knowing that I am in the TRUE Church!

How I live my faith

I am a young adult who loves to make people smile and laugh! It has been 2 years since I was baptized! I am so happy that I was baptized! I love having my days brighter when I say my daily prayers and read The Book of Mormon! I love going to Church and seeing the different faces of brothers and sisters! I enjoy listening to Hymns and Contemporary Christian Music! Uplifting music makes me go on through out my day and spread the love I feel from Jesus Christ to my friends! I am in charge of the bulletin board at church! I like putting up awesome quotes that others can relate to and get a smile from! I have my bulletin board covered with pictures!
