Hi I'm Melannie Palomino

I grew up in Peru. I'm studying business at college and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Peru and my native language is Spanish but I can speak English, French and Portuguese. I'm studying business at a college in the USA. I love business and I'll start my own business in the USA after I finish my mission. I like cooking, especially Peruvian food. I like singing, reading, painting and dancing. I like learning foreign and also learning about others cultures. I would like to travel to India, Korea and South Africa. I like to try new things like sports and food. I like playing volleyball, basketball and soccer. I like teaching and learning from others.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon. since I was a child I always went to the Church at the beginning with my parents but then alone. I went to church alone for more than ten years. I really love going to church because the things I learned there always made me feel complete, knowing that I'm a daughter of God and that he loves with a pure and perfect love makes me think that I can do everything in my life just because I know he's going to beside me and knowing that Jesus Christ died for me makes me feel grateful and I just want to follow his example. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings me peace in this life and if I keep his commandments in this life i will able to have eternal life.

How I live my faith

I like serving others that's why I decided to go on a mission. I'm very happy being a Mormon so I want to share this happiness with everybody. Since I was a child I always went to the Chruch and I learned how to read and love the scriptures. Then as a teenager I really enjoyed all different kinds of activities like sports, camping, and parties. I also learned more about the scriptures in seminary classes. I woke up at 5am every day to go to these classes for four years to learn more about the scriptures and its worth it. I learned a lot from these classes and that helps me to make better decisions in my life and now as a young adult I love preaching the gospel as a missionary. Im learning more things and I love sharing why I'm so happy being a Mormon, how this gospel helps me to be better and a happier person.
