Hi I'm James Espinoza

I grew up in Laramie, Wyoming. I am currently serving a mission in Illinois. I am a Mormon

About Me

I love spending time with my family. My hobbies are cars and trains. I just finished my first year of college. I want to study medicine. I am serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Illinois Chicago West Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My family on my mom's side came to the United States for the opportunity to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This was a huge sacrifice in my eyes and I do not want to take the opportunities I have because of their decision for granted. I know that we have a Heavenly Father and that He loves us all. I recently lost my great grandma, but know that I will see her along with other deceased family again. I know that the Lord has a great and perfect plan for all of us. This knowledge has come from the restored gospel that is found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-say Saints.

How I live my faith

I decided to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was not always active in the church, but in the past year I realized and felt the power and strength that comes from the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I wanted to share that peace and happiness that comes from the gospel of Jesus Christ with my fellow brothers and sisters by serving a mission. I will be sharing the message that Christ's church and gospel have been restored to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. The message will give people comfort and guidance in life. They can come closer to the Lord and feel the love He has for them. In turn I will gain an even stronger testimony of and relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ.
