Hi I'm Carlos Orozco Rios

I grew up in Mexico, I love my family and friends, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in Mexico untill I moved to Utah (when i was 13). I couldnt speak English back then so I had to simply dive into the culture. None of my friends spoke Spanish but that didnt matter because we still had much fun. At age 18 I graduated from high school and then 5 months later I was called to serve a full time mission in California.

Why I am a Mormon

By taking a quick look at the world and where some of my good friends were headed, I had to make a choise wether I should believe on God or follow the world. I knew that God existed and I saw his mighty hand in my life. Through the restored Gosple of Jesus Christ I can understand better the "why" of things. Throught prayer and scripture sture I've been able to have a more personal and stronger relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. Believing what I believe helps me make better choices so i can live a fun, happy, and safe life.

How I live my faith

I grew up in this church and my parents always told me to read my scriptures, pray, and go to church. As I got older I realized that the were right. As life started for me, I realized that I need all of that and the darkest days of my life were because I didn't do those things. I know that if we pray, read our scriptures, and attend to church, we will receive guidance in our lives. And there is nothing better than sharing those things with others and helping them in their lives!
