About Me

Remember much me in a classroom and one of my friends had done a cartoon duck and I said " ... I think I can also do ... " and yes I did indeed not accurate but I drew it , since then I knew I had skills to do this, was only eight at the time, then in high school I got the highest mark in drama , I said within myself " ... ability to have this ... " for when I finished school I knew my career would be inclined towards the Arts . However in that my passion was youth Football , participated in several events, thought to be a footballer , however the destination offers many different things and the end of all this I studied Communication Sciences , a fascinating career. From my interests I can say I enjoy dancing all especially Salsa , I love watching movies , I rent movies or go to the movies with the whole family , I personally like the action , but e seen many kids for my children and wau . .. are very nice too. Family to me is very important , I do not see without my wife and without my children , is the most valuable thing that I have on this earth , sometimes it's hard to face a world so convulsed evil , but why the gospel has given me the strength to follow in this fight , I am happy, I am not rich financially, but I am emotionally and spiritually , and just so that's what should matter most , being happy in yourself and that's what I am.

Why I am a Mormon

My older brother and I were in conversation outside the house when we saw pass two missionaries of the Church , they greeted us and walked , apparently had an appointment with someone but I think that quote was not , and then they returned to our surprise came towards us, it was funny because my brother and I murmur and said " come over here ... oh , what do we do ? ... " I think our reaction was a natural one , maybe wanted to get us to the house but it was too late. The strange thing was that while they passed in front of us , we ask ourselves " ... who are they? .. " and when they were in front of us said " ... you know who we are ? ... " After show, we go to the house and was the first contact we had with the Church. At that time my brother and I traveled to the capital and one of my brothers continued to listen to the missionaries, when I returned had been almost a year, and my brother was a member and followed my sister was baptized , it was then that first missionaries sat with me to talk, by that time I had attended other churches, but only one talk enough to feel in my heart that Joseph Smith really was a prophet, he with the permission of God translated what today known as the Book of Mormon. Not one convinced me what I think , I felt in myself a peace , a peace that this was true. Since that time without having baptized I decided to be a member of the Church, my faith is kept alive and active so far, I met my beautiful wife in the Church , our children are born under the heat provided by the membership of the Church restored Jesus Christ, I feel like I'm living in this world but do not belong to him, you do not belong to it, are children of a loving Heavenly Father , your home is ours..

How I live my faith

Since I became a member of this Church , I liked to participate voluntarily in all responsibilities that have entrusted to me . One of the first assignments was to work with youth, I was never given a class as a teacher, but I was taught and I feel I did well considering it was a 18 year old and new member, is teaching young people to be as they , youth is the most beautiful phase of life. Another responsibility was working with people who are learning the Church is very nice because it allowed me to visit their homes, talk and smile with people who had never in my life met and how rewarding this was when they came to the church , because as I already knew me, made ​​them feel they were not alone though members are always very friendly , but it was good to do that. After that I had the privilege of being full-time missionary , I served in the Peru Lima North Mission , I feel that after marriage being a missionary has been the most beautiful experience I've lived , I worked on the coast, mountains and jungle of Peru , though I am native here , I had never met people , customs, was only in the the Mission, the experiences are many and of all kinds. My career gave me the opportunity to serve the Church as director of public affairs in my industry , working with local authorities fills you with satisfaction, that many people think that Mormons are in their own world and not, when I came to the public relations department of the Municipality of my industry and told the manager " ... I know 200 people, including youth and adults to do service , tell us what we can do and we will .. " managers were surprised , took advantage not any time to talk about our beliefs, we were only there to give voluntary service. From my childhood to now help others satisfy me.
