Hi I'm Jonelly

I'm from Puerto Rico. I'm currently serving a mission in California. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a biotechnology mayor in Puerto Rico. I love watching movies and listening to music. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I am currently serving a full-time mission in the California Rancho Cucamonga Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

As I already mentioned earlier, I grew up in the Church and I've known about the gospel all my life. But I didn't come to understand the importance of it until a couple years ago. I am very grateful for being able to know and recognize now that I am a child of God. God loves me and every person in the world. He is our Father and we are His special children. He knows each one of us, personally. Sometimes, we may face challenges or something will happen that will make us think "why me?"; but I know that God is there to help us overcome it. I love having the gospel in my life and I love having the opportunity to teach it to the people here in California.

How I live my faith

I've been in the Church since I was little. I love going every sunday to Church with my family. For 18 months I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. What we do as missionaries is serve others and help them come closer to Christ. I love being a missionary because I have the opportunity to meet different kinds of people and teach them about the gospel of Christ.
