Hi I'm Miguel Mora

I'm serving a full-time mission in the California, Fresno mission! Putting our shoulders to the wheel in The Lord's Vineyard!!

About Me

I am currently serving in the California, Fresno mission! I was baptized March 30, 2013! Since then I have grown so much, not just in the spiritual sense, but in maturity also. I know that The Church is true. I know because I have wandered, and wondered, and Heavenly Father has answered the prayers that I have. I have no claim to being perfect, in fact, I am far from it. However, I know that the atonement of our Lord and Savior makes up for all of the shortcomings that I have. I know that He suffered and bled, for me, and for you, and for everyone, so that we would have the chance and the opportunity to someday return and live with him and Heavenly Father. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God, and that as we read it we will feel the words of the ancient prophets testify to us that it is true, and that Jesus is The Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

To quote a famous song "I once was lost, but now am found," I wasn't sure who God was before. Nor did I know that He had a plan for me. I didn't know where I came from, nor wear I would go. Now I know where I come from, from a loving Heavenly Father, whose sole purpose is to help us, His children, return to live with Him. I feel that this is the only church whose doctrines coincide with who God is. I do not see God being some ringleader, watching us like someone would watch animals jump through hoops. Nor do I see God as a tyrant, watching His pawns run around aimlessly. I see God for who He is, my loving Heavenly Father. I believe that the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are not the teachings and doctrines of men, but the divine and inspired direction given to us by deity. Heavenly Father could have chosen any name associated with power, exaltation, and grandeur, and yet He chose the title Father. To me, that brings me comfort, to know that whatever I am going through, whatever trial I am facing, I never have to face it alone, and whenever I am to weak to continue walking on my own, He will carry me. And He will carry you too!

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time mission, and this means that for 2 years I have the wonderful opportunity to be a full-time representative of The Lord Jesus Christ. I get to wake up, study, and go share and proclaim the wonderful news of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ! I know that the message that we carry has the potential to change lives. I know that it has changed mine, and the main way that I live my faith now is by sharing that message that has impacted me. I know that this Gospel is designed to bring peace, comfort, and happiness to us in a world that seems more disconnected and dark. I know that Heavenly Father wants us to be happy, and for these two years, I get to go out every day and proclaim it to the world!
