Hi I'm Pablo

Grew up in Mexico, love music, I am a Mormon!

About Me

As i said before, i am currently serving on a mission in Vancouver Canada! (Best mission ever!) and it has been great so far. Before my mission though, i was doing pre-dentistry at BYU-Idaho and i was loving it. Anyway i know i made the right choice to serve the Lord. I consider myself a normal guy,but then again, what's "normal"?... Well, I have a passion for music; rock being my favorite type of music. I love both spanish and english rock, there are some pretty awesome bands out there. Also, i love playing guitar, both acustic and electric, although to be honest i kind of just started doing it and im not very good at it... yet. However, i love playing my acoustic guitar way more than my electric one, there is just something about it that i love so much. I think that playing guitar was my favorite thing to do back home and i felt that it was a very powerful way of expressing my feelings and relaxing!! My favorite sports are soccer and basketball, i love watching them and playing them. I love the world cup!! and everytime i watch a game where my team, Mexico (el tri) is playing, my brothers and i just go completely crazy!! The Chicago Bulls is my NBA team, however i am sad D. Rose is out again.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the gospel therefore i was taught the "mormon" way of living ever since i can remember, and i knew no different; nevertheless i am convinced that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. Now that i am older and serving on a mission i have gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon, as it is another witness that teaches and testifies of our Savior, like the Bible does. I know that it is the keystone of our religion. Once i knew the book was true, i knew that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God by whom the true Church of Jesus Christ was restored once again to the earth, and everything else (teachings, doctrines, etc.) just followed and made sense to me. One of the many great blessings that came from the restoration of the church of Jesus Christ that i love, is the knowledge that there is a plan for each and everyone of us, whereby we can be happy in this life despite the challenges and difficulties that we all face, by relying on Jesus Christ and His infinite atonement (He suffered everything we have ever gone through, so that He knows how to comfort us and help us when we need Him). Being on my mission has helped me understand and realize that this divine plan of salvation is real and God loves all of His Children. I also love knowing that death is not the end and that FAMILIES CAN BE TOGETHER FOREVER!!

How I live my faith

I'm serving as a missionary, doing lots of service for people and teaching whoever wants to listen about the joy that comes from the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We believe that the Bible is the word of God, as far as it is translated correctly. We as mormons say this because we know that there are many versions of the Bible and we also know that it has been re-written numerous times by many people. We beliebve that the Book of Mormon strenghtens and guides our knowledge about the Bible. Show more Show less
