Hi I'm Ellis Lucero

Born in Utah, accomplished pianist. Tennis player, lady killer, Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old, 6' tall, and bilingual. I am currently serving a mission in the El Salvador-San Salvador East Mission. I have completed one semester of my freshman year in college. I have been playing the piano for fifteen years, and I play tennis. I love hot chocolate on cold snowy nights. I love rainy days. I love anaphora. But most importantly, I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. Having been a member of the Church my entire life, I have been able to enjoy the blessings that come from the gospel since I can remember. I've always had good role models, both within and without of my home. And because of them, I am here in El Salvador preaching the gospel to the people here. I love the Lord. I love His gospel. And I am proud to say that I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it's true. I have seen in the lives of my parents, grandparents, and friends the blessings that this gospel brings. The knowledge of the plan that our Father in Heaven has for us is one of the most important things that we could know. And this gospel brings that great plan of happiness. Families can be together forever. Death has no victory. God is our loving Heavenly Father. Each person on this Earth is His child. And He wants more than anything for them to return to His presence. And it is only through the way that His Son has set, through His gospel and Church, that we can accomplish that. I know that. I live that. And I love that. And that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

First and foremost, I try to live my faith everyday as a missionary of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am proud to call myself as such. By testifying of the truthfulness of the restored gospel, I have been able to show and share the blessings that come from the true church. Serving both inside the Church and out, I have been able to share the light of truth that emanates from the gospel. The examples that have been set, and that hopefully I have set as well, are a great factor in being able to see and, later, enjoy, the blessings of this Church.
