Hi I'm Fernando De La Paz

"I live in Provo. I love playing soccer, Its my life, I'm a Mormon"

About Me

I 'm Fernando De La Paz, people also call me Nando,Ferni, DLP, whatever you can think of. I love playing sports and always being involved with sports. The one i can play very well is soccer i grew up playing this sport and i have been playing it since i could walk, my first toy my dad gave me was a small soccer ball. This sport has brought me a lot of success in life and i have learned a lot from it. I have a story behind it but i think that doesn't really matter, i just thank my Dad for helping me achieve my dream. I come from two amazing parents and i have 2 siblings which i love and i would take my shirt off my back for them. They have being great examples to me and i just keep learning from them. I am a person that takes all kinds of challenges in life so i know a lot of things, mainly because i always want to try everything out, I'am always curious how things work. My back ground is hispanic, i learn english in a short amount of time so there will be couple spelling errors here and there, I ask for forgiveness. But i keep learning the language as days go by. Something about me is that i am always smiling and i just love to laugh i never get upset, because this life is full of joy, and always got to look at the positive side of it. I love to set my standards high because thats how i been taught, if you work hard and always keep raising the bar, then you will see a great out come from it. I love the people in this world and they need a smile in their daily lifes.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon, This Question is a very great one, because my story is a very long one full of surprises, But i will give the short story and if you want to hear more about it then maybe you can ask me. But i am mormon because i was lost in life with out a purpose and i knew that my Heavenly Father had something for me, so i prayed and in that same week the missionaries knocked on my door. Since that day i know this is the only true church on this earth and that it has the same teachings that Jesus Christ taught when he was here on earth. We live our faith and always try to be best at it. Coming from a catholic background i never went to church only when holidays came by then i would be at church but The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, lives their faith and try there best to follow the teachings. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he went through all his afflictions because he knew that in our time the church was going to expand world wide and needed to be heard. I have no doubt in my heart that we have a prophet today and that he is guided by God. I 'm a Mormon and i can say it to everybody with no shame.

How I live my faith

One of the ways i live my faith is by always being a great example and helping those around me. People out there need help and they are afraid of asking for it, but if you are always looking out for those who need it then you can be the instrument of God. I try to help everybody no matter what situation they might be in, but all i know is that Jesus Christ would do the exact same thing for them if he was here on earth. Another way i live my faith is serving God in his missionary service, I took the challenge of leaving my family for 2 years and helping other families achieve Eternal life. I am serving a full time mission in the Lansing, Michigan Mission, English speaking. I know that people need my help and that i was send to Michigan for a purpose and that purpose is to invite everybody to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
