Hi I'm Jair

I'm a sports fan. I'm a student. I love puzzles. I'm Ecuadorian by birth and Texan by choice. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Ecuador. At the age of 12 my family and I came to the United States. I have lived in different states within the southern region of the country and visited other regions as well, but I claim Texas as my home. I love my Latin heritage and enjoy a lot of the food, culture, and traditions. At the same time I really most aspects of the American culture. I'm a big sports fan, and while I enjoy playing most sports there are only a few that I love to watch. Among other things I like to watch sitcoms and love to watch movies with family or friends. I love board games, card games, puzzles and any other logical type of challenge. I also love the outdoors because I love to admire the beauty of God's creations.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know that this church is true. I have a testimony that Joseph Smith by calling of God was responsible for restoring to Gospel in this dispensation. I am a Mormon, because I asked Heavenly Father to know if this is His church and he answered my prayer and let me know that it is. I am a Mormon because my Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to return back to Him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best I can to help build the kingdom of God. From obeying the commandments, to serving in my callings I try to do my best to be able to help others in our journey on Earth. I love to serve and try to be an example to people as they are to me. I have had many great experiences while service and have seen how wonderful it to lighten people's shoulders. I have helped the community after Tornadoes, helped my school with many volunteering activities, visited and worked in food shelters and nursing homes. Though service is a big way to show love, I try to just be kind to people and show that I care about them. Taking time to greet as many people as possible, engaging in many conversations, trying to make someone smile, are some of the ways I like to express my love towards others.
