Hi I'm Blanca

I'm from Lima,Peru, but I have been living in the States for over 21 years. I'm a member of the Church for 10 years.

About Me

I'm a translator and interpreter and slll bead jewelry as well. I speak five languages: Spanish, Italian, French, English and Portuguese. I like playing the guitar, singing and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church 2 years after losing my boyfriend to lung cancer in 2001. A co-worker talked to me about visiting the Church and one day the missionaries visited my home without her referring me to them. They prayed for my home and I'd never heard a prayer like that before, so I decided to take the talks. When they asked me to get baptized I chose to see what my mom would say about it. I called her and before I asked the question, she said, "You're thinking of being baptized, aren't you? Well, finally you'll be around good people, go, do it, you have my whole support!" My baptism was on August 10th 2003 and since then, my perspective of life has changed 108° for the better!!!

How I live my faith

I'm a Family History consultant and at Church, teach the children from ages 8 to 11 right now. I also served as interpreter between Spanish and English speaking people and was the Single Adult Representative at the Peace River Branch in Wauchula. Also, I taught the Scriptures to adults for about four years.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

We believe that if we keep the commandments which Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have given to us here on earth, we will enjoy being in their presence throughout all eternities. This is Eternal Life This blessing is not only for us, but we can share it with our families and our ancestors when we go to the Temple and perform ordinances with them and for them there. For instance, when you marry and are sealed with your spouse at the Temple, and if both of you do your best to keep the commandments, your marriage lasts beyond death and will continue through all eternity. Isn't this great? People talk about eternal love, we know love is eternal! Our Heavenly Father's love is eternal and He wants to share with us all He has. If we make the right choices in this life, not only will He give us all the knowledge that is required to make it through this mortal life, but also, once we are in His presence, make us heirs along with Jesus Christ of His exaltation and His love.
