Hi I'm Javier

I'm from Houston, TX, former missionary, love reading the scriptures, going with the missionaries, serve others and love scouting.

About Me

I'm the oldest son of my family, I served a mission from 2012 to 2014 in Dallas, loved and still love serving. I have my brother serving a mission in the state of Washington.

Why I am a Mormon

In November 2006 my mom called to receive the movie Finding Faith in Christ, after two weeks the missionaries passed through my house, my mom did not want to hear the message, but I felt I should listen to them, as they passed each week to try. They invited me to read The Book of Mormon, and to pray to know if Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. In February 2007 I received my answer through the Holy Spirit that this was true, in the second week of February I got baptized and then my family joined the Church. Be happy, be a Mormon, I'm so happy and blessed to have the blessing of having the true gospel in my life, this gospel has brought me happiness and joy, I am not a perfect person but this why God has given us a "map" to guide us thru this life and also a Savior that has paid the price that we may have joy and one day come back to our home to our Father. I'm a Mormon because I have found a purpose of my life in this earth, not to just "eat, drink and be merry" but to have joy with our families, and prepare to meet God. I am a Mormon because we have living Propthes who receive revelation from God to also guide us and to know His will for all His children, I'm a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints. I know this is the true Church of Christ and the Prophet Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who translated the Book of Mormon, the priesthood has also been restored and given to men to act in the name of God to bless our families and others, I know with all my heart that the Book of Mormon to be also the word of God given to ancient prophets in the Americas, that Jesus has come and he will come again. That any one who once had faith in Him or does not have may have faith thru the power of the Holy Ghost by asking and and trust in him, he is there for us we just need to humble our self and come unto him. I testify that we have a prophet and his name is Thomas S. Monson, also 12 Apostles just like Jesus called when he was hereI'M HAPPY TO BE A MORMON

How I live my faith

I live my faith by stryving to follow the commandments of God, serve the young men of my ward, going out with the missionaries serving in my ward visiting others who are learning about the Gospel. Reading the scriptures and learning from the Propthes, asisting sacrament meeting and partaking of the sacraments to renew my baptismal covenants that I did. Attending the Temple taking names for my ancestors who did not have the opportunity to hear the restored gospel.
