Hi I'm Jesse Echevarria

I live in Texas. I've been a member of the church my entire life. I am a Mormon. I know it, I live it, I love it

About Me

I'm a highschool student in the 10th grade. My plans for when I finish highschool are to go serve a mission and to go to BYU, Provo afterwards. I enjoy swimming and being outside. I love participating in all the youth activities at church. I'm very active in church and school.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My mom was LDS all her life and my dad converted when he was a teenager. I chose to accept this religion because I've read the Book of Mormon and I trully believe it is true. I also believe that we have all he standards and "rules" for a reason! Heavenly Father did not give us these comandments and all of these rules to watch us fail. He gave them to us to watch us succeed and become more like him. The church has always been there for me and the youth program is amazing! I cannot wait to serve a mission so I can share this wonderful gospel. This is why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I'm 15 so that makes me a teacher. Every sunday I go to church and set up the sacrament and help the deacons pass it. I also go every wednesday to church for the youth activities, I almost lost my job because they wanted me to work on wednesday. I also go out home teaching with my father. I'm still working on my Duty to God and becoming an Eagle Scout.
