Hi I'm Renzo

Born in Peru, grew up in Cali. College- BYU-Provo. Love sports, drawing & chocolate chip cookies! Serving my mission in Louisiana.

About Me

I am from South America but lived in the U.S for most of my life. I am serving my mission in Louisiana. I love sports, i have played track and field as well as football but i love playing every sport for fun as long as it involves competition, running and/or hitting. I love to draw every now and then what ever comes to mind. My parents divorced when i was about 7 years of age and since them my mom remarried and i have been blessed with 4 step brothers and a new dad. I rarely see my dad but still talk to him. I am a student at BYU- Provo and will keep attending after my mission and i will also join the BYU track team! I have a big family, unfortunately most of my extended family live back in Peru so we don't keep in touch as much as i'd like. I love my church and love being a Mormon, it has brought my family strength and comfort.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to accept the teaching of the LDS church and have personally felt that God and his true gospel is all here. Through his teachings and as i hear his words spoken through prophets in the Book of Mormon i have never felt so certain of the truthfulness that lies within. I have gained a strong testimony, not only through reading the book, but also through the experiences of other people that they have shared with me and my own personal experience about how this church and the Book of Mormon have greatly effected our life. And the Holy Ghost reassures me with his comfort and warmth feeling in my heart that this is the straight and narrow path that our Heavenly Father has created for us. I have a desire to follow God and to do what is right so that i may live with him once again after my life here on this earth. This life is my trial, and there is no one else i would rather have by my side helping me than my Father in Heaven. This is why i am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now i am a Missionary serving in Kenner, Louisiana. I live my faith everyday with daily scriptures study from the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I pray daily thanking my Father in Heaven for the many blessings. I go out to find and teach the sons and daughters of God of the Gospel in which i know to be true. It brings happiness, peace, and comfort into my life and i want to share that with the people so that they may have those same blessings in their life. I cannot go a day without thinking of my brothers and sisters around the world who need the gospel and Jesus Christ in their life. I choose to follow the commandments daily and be exactly obedient to those laws which God has given us.
