Hi I'm Ana Cristina

God is our Heavenly Father. He loves us. The Book of Mormon is His Word. I Am Mormon!

About Me

I am a Missionary serving in the California Riverside Mission. I came to know about the church when the missionaries came and knocked on my door. I felt that their message was true right from the start. I have been through ups and downs just as everyone, but I know that our Heavenly Father loves us all. When I first went to church, I felt the Spirit telling me that this Is the One True Church of Jesus Christ. I have read the Book of Mormon several times and every time I finish reading it I pray to know if it is the word of God. Every time I receive a confirmation through the Holy Ghost that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. This is the true church of Jesus Christ and it was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. You can come to know for yourself as well by reading the Book of Mormon, praying to know if it is the word of God and if the prophet Joseph Smith was in fact a prophet of God, and as by attending The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt in my heart and soul that this is where and what I am suppose to be. Being able to read the Book of Mormon and praying about it, has let me know that the Book of Mormon is true. I can testify to you that this is His true church. That through Joseph Smith the church has been resorted once again. I can testify to you that Joseph Smith is a true prophet of our Heavenly Father. Even though there will be difficult times in our lives, as long as we can keep our Faith in our Heavenly Father everything will work out. I am thankful to be able to have the scriptures we do today. For they teach us about what the prophets back in those days went through and that we aren't the only ones going through difficult times. I am thankful to be able to have Temples where we can go to be closer to our Heavenly Father here on Earth. I can testify to you that if you pray with all your heart to find out if this is the True Gospel and Doctrine that you will receive your answer. I leave this things with you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I pray regularly, as well as read my scriptures regularly. I make sure to attend Institute every Tuesday. Institute is where young single adults (ages18-30) meet together to learn more about our Heavenly Father. We also learn more about the Old Testament, New Testament, and Book of Mormon. We have the opportunity to ask question and make statements of what it was we learned that day. I make sure that I go to church every Sunday. Having Family Home Evening with the other Young Single Adults in my ward. Going to several YSA activates whenever possible. Going out with the Sister Missionaries and helping spread the gospel. This activities have and are helping me be able to have a stronger testimony and be able to have a stronger foundation. By serving a full time mission. A mission consists of leaving your family, friends and daily life and submitting to the Lord's will for 18-24 months. Praying every single day and reading the Book of Mormon.
