Hi I'm Mayra

I am from Fresno CA. I will be serving a mission in New Mexico Albuquerque and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got baptized with my family in 2008, I am not a mom or dad, but I am the eldest of 5. I love all kinds of sports, but if I had to pick one it would be lacrosse. I love Reese's cups, the color blue, and trying new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it literally changed my life. My dad was invited to a little party at a friend's house after work and the missionaries were teaching one of his friends when they came over to him and asked if they could come over to our house to hear more about what they had to say. He said yes and was going to give them our neighbors address, but had a feeling that he should just give them the right address so he did. My mom and I were not so happy about what he did, so when they came I went to my parents room and listened from there. My sisters loved having them over, but I didn't because before they came we were searching for a church, but none of them felt right and I felt like God just didn't want me to know Him. It took a couple of months, but I could see and feel the really good change in my family and in myself. We got baptized, my parents got married and it was just an awesome feeling. After we got baptized there were some trials that tried to keep us away from church, but every time we overcame those trials the blessings that came after it were greater. I am 19 now and there was always tough decisions that I had to make during high school, and there will always will be, but I know that if we choose the right God will always have our back no matter what because I know that we are never alone I know that He lives and that the Book of Mormon is true and if we pray about it if we "ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ"(Moroni 10:4) he will show us the truth I know this to be true, and I say this things in the name Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I like to do all kinds of service like teach new people about the gospel especially with the missionaries. I also like to organize church events and love to see when people are having fun and smile. When ever I get a chance to visit someone I go. Tough jobs, like cleaning, working in the vineyard, or cleaning up a park is actually something that I like to do.
