Hi I'm Pedro

I am from Lima, Peru. I got baptized two years ago with my entire family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play all kinds of sports such as soccer, baseball, basketball, swimming and skiing. I went to a full year of college before i decided to go on a mission. I really like to paint and read and just relax and have fun. My friends know me because of my sense of humor and how i am so friendly with everyone.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member for two years has put me behind most of my friends. I never got the chance to go to seminary but i wish i could have. I have basically grown up in the church, almost all my friends are members and they have been such examples to me. i really enjoyed going to mutual, combined activities and scout camps because they were really fun and i could hang out with my friends and i felt happy and at peace for some reason. We have had many missionaries talk to us over the years but we just weren't interested until two years ago. We had some of our really good friends help us through the journey and we met two pairs of elders that we fell in love with. We had lessons and then we got baptized and we have been blessed ever since. I love this Gospel so much and it has been a tremendous blessing in my life, and it feels good just following Christ and his disciples here on the earth.

How I live my faith

Being in the church for just two years i have had the opportunity to serve such as being the second counselor for my age group. I have done visiting teaching as well for two families and i love them very much, they are such wonderful people and i want to do anything i can to make them feel happy with their lives and everything.I have been pretty busy with that stuff and whenever someone needs my help at the church or someones house i like to volunteer even though its hard because i know service is great and it will bless them and myself as well.
