Hi I'm Rayo

I grew up around the world and I'm currently serving in the Sacramento California Mission and I'm loving it!

About Me

I love to play football and volleyball! Missionary work has been a blast I love it and I'm sooo glad there have been the right people in my life who helped me to get here, I know the Lord put them in my path to make sure I'm going the right way to help me grow! I have gained a real enthusiasm for the Gospel of Jesus Christ since beginning my mission. I try my best to not judge people, you are who you are and if I can help you to become a better person than great but I love you for you!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this Church is the restored Church of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. I see it everyday in miracles big and small. Because I know that Joseph Smith Jr. was the first prophet of this dispensation, the man charged with restoring God's church and authority on the Earth. Because I have felt the Lord bless me as I study his scriptures (particularly The Book of Mormon) and seek to understand them. Because I feel The Spirits presence when I listen to and follow the teachings that have been given to us from The Christ in ancient times and this modern day through the prophet Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

I attend my weekly Sunday service, I study everyday and love it, I speak with people all day about the gospel as a missionary for The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I love everyone I meet!

Are Mormons Christians?

I would define a Christian as someone who attempts to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. I believe as a Mormon that is exactly what I try to do each and every day. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

We perform baptisms for those who have passed on from this life because we believe in a loving Heavenly Father who would definitely give those who have not had a chance in this life to follow the example of Jesus the Christ and have the ordinance of baptism performed for them. God would be a cruel Father if he left them without a way to achieve the exalted state promised to us based solely on the fact that they never had a chance to hear about his Gospel and be baptized for a remission of their sins.
