Hi I'm Santana

I am a second year university student and will be serving a full-time mission in San Fernando California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a city in Saskatchewan, Canada and am the eldest of 5 children. I have put my schooling on hold while I prepare to serve a full-time mission in California where I will be for 18 months as I serve the Lord. I love learning and all the growth that comes from new experiences. I love playing music, sports and being outdoors. I love spending time with family and am so grateful to have them as support. This gospel is a great blessing in my life, and I look forward to serving a mission and being able to share my testimony with others as well as strengthening my own.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have attained through personal study and prayer, a testimony of this gospel. I have studied the doctrine of the church and through both prayer and the Holy Ghost have come to know of it's truth. Although it is not a perfect faith, I am doing what I can to strengthen my testimony and increase my knowledge day by day. I believe that through prayer we are able to come to know our Father in heaven and have Him help us center our lives around Christ. I know that the atonement is central to our progression and if we utilize that great gift we will have joy and peace in our lives. I believe that Heavenly Father knows us individually and loves us. We are His children and He wants to see us succeed. This gospel gives me hope and helps me see my own individual worth.

How I live my faith

Soon I will be serving full-time as a missionary but at the moment I am an active member of my ward at home. I am chorister in Relief Society which is the women's organization in the church and occasionally help teach children's classes. I also attend an institute class once a week which is a young adult class where we study the teachings of the gospel through the Bible and the Book of Mormon.
