Hi I'm Cynthia C.

Hola! I'm Cynthia. I am studying to be Spanish teacher. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am biracial, my father is from Louisiana and my mother is from Guatemala. My parents have found away to blend the two cultures together. I enjoy singing and dancing and have been doing it for most of my life. I love working with children and I am looking foreword to being a teacher someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been an active member my whole life. When it came time for my baptism my parents wanted me to taught like any other investigator of the church. I was taught the discussions by two sister missionaries. I was very nervous to be baptized, I was only eight years old! How was I supposed to know if the church was really true? The night before my baptism I had a beautiful dream. In my dream, I was walking to the park near my home. I saw a man dressed in all white working towards me. I ran up to him and looked down at me sand asked,"Are you ready to be baptized, Cynthia?" With all my might I answered yes! He took my by the hand and we began to walk together. I knew then that the man in my dream was the savior , I am still know and believe that today.

How I live my faith

I have the joy of being the music teacher to nursery and primary children. Working with them is something I look foreword to every week. Before that calling I was on an activity committee planing parties/events for the members of our congregation. I have recently gotten called to serve a full-time mission for the church in San Diego!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Cynthia C.
No, not all mormons are required to serve a mission. My brother and I were never pushed by anyone to go on a mission. It was something that both he and I decided on our own. I never wanted to serve on growing up and my parents always respected my choice. They were shocked when I told them that I wanted to go on a mission. I know for me personally that, I would regret not going on a mission. Making the choice was something that I did not take lightly and I am honored that I am going to get a chance to serve.
