Hi I'm Juan

I grew up in Florida. I am a student majoring in Mechanical Engineering and currently I am a full-time Missionary.

About Me

I, Juan, was born of goodly parents. I lived most of my life in Florida and I was also born in the church. I graduated from High School not too long ago and I am going to college in Brigham Young University -Idaho. I want to work in Alternative Energy and Green Technology as a Mechanical Engineer. I am single and just working hard for my family and for a bright future. Right now I am a full-time missionary serving in the Argentina, Mendoza Mission. I love playing around with my siblings and friends with video games, going out on the theaters, and just trying different things each time. I also love to just listen to music and work out in the gym (I like a lot of genres like Rap, Hip-hop, R 'n 'B, Metal, Rock, Pop, Electronic, Dubstep, Disco, Funk, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Reggaeton, Religious, Gospel, Christian Rock, and Soundtracks from movies and games) I love watching many tv shows and also I love many animated Japanese series. So far all things I like to do has to do with being with my friends or with my families for it is where I enjoy my life best with. I try my best to be a great friend to the people that I meet and trust to enjoy life. I love studying in school and I am going to miss attending college in the future but for now I am glad that I still got a lot of time left =).

Why I am a Mormon

Well despite being born in the church and growing up with the principles all life long, I didn't really became converted until I hit my adolescent years. As I decided once and for all to read the Word and ask the Almighty Lord if these things that I grew up with was not true, and by the power of the Holy Spirit I was able to find out for my own that this church is true and that the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is only found in here. I have many family members who are members of the Church. For a long time I went by with the flow of the waves until, after having made many mistakes in my life and desiring to have such a heavy load on my conscience eliminated, I decided to seek for the true power of the Savior's Atonement in my life. After making some important changes in my life and discussing the matters with authorized servants of the Lord, I experienced in such great power the confirmation that my Heavenly Father loves me and that I was forgiven of the great offenses to Him by my sins. I came to realize that I have a great hero in my life who has paid the great price of the demands of Justice for the sins I have committed. I know that Jesus Christ IS MY SAVIOR and everyone's Savior. It is by Him that we can be cleansed and made perfect by the time that we should go through Judgement and that His church HAS BEEN RESTORED once here in the earth to bless all mankind. This is HIS TRUE CHURCH and His Gospel is real and you should all investigate and discover for yourselves if this is all true or not. We, the missionaries, are here to help everyone with that =) Please just investigate with a real intent of knowing whether these things ar true or not. God is no "respector of persons" and he won't make any exceptions with anyone, IF HE TOLD ME this is true than he can't possibly say otherwise to someone else. Please just do everything the missionaries will invite you to do to know for yourself and to experience the greatest blessings you will ever have.

How I live my faith

I served in many service activities in church, but the most significant is being part of Boy Scouts of America. I am in the Rank of Eagle scout and it has been really fun to have learned so many skills in those 7 years of going to summer camp outs and stuff. I was actually a an assistant scout leader for just a summer and I am glad that a lot of guys I been with had a decent time with me. Right now as a full-time Missionary, I am serving people 24/7 and so far I have helped with construction, painting, cleaning, moving stuff, and etc. I really believe that when you are serving others, you are serving Jesus Christ and anyways most of time I really enjoy doing things for others. Generally I live the principles taught the best I can, even though I have my faults. I try my bt to visit people that are in need and I always seek to edify them and help them move onward despite the many challenges that may come on the way.
