Hi I'm Mauricio Lenig Rodriguez

I am from California, serving in the U.S. Army and I am a Latter-day Saint.

About Me

I have been in the U.S. Army for over ten years. I joined right out of High School and have been blessed by knowing hundreds of people. I am a Sergeant and currently Serving as a light infantry Squad Leader. I am Divorced with two wonderful children, a boy and a girl. I was inactive for a good portion of my Army tenure, but have come back full swing into the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have been blessed so much and want to do everything I can to help others come to the light of Christ. I love to stay fit and exercise and be as active as I can with my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in modern day revelations, the strong feeling that the spirit gives me when the Savior is guiding me by His will. I continue to live the Gospel because I have a strong testimony that our families may be eternal, through the covenants we make and keep. That the power of the Holy priesthood is on this Earth through our modern day prophets, apostles, and brethren. I know that as a returned wayward child, I have been given another chance to be in His flock and be ministered by those that are called to lead. As well that the past is truly forgiven and the atonement of our redeemer is real and it makes us whole again.

How I live my faith

Currently I am deployed in the Country of Djibouti, as part of a Army Division. I have been blessed that there is a military branch here, where I have been called and sustained as the Elder's Quorum President. It is very rewarding as I endeavor to help the small congregation here as best I can, with the spirit guiding me in all I do. I do my best to be a good example for my subordinates and peers, that they will see my values and work ethic above all that shows my devotion to the best Gospel living.
