Hi I'm Marcelo Montoya-Lopez

I grew up in Sacramento, California. I play soccer for Brigham Young University. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Sacramento, California. Both of my parents grew up in Mexico but then moved to California few years before i was born. I was Roman Catholic till the age of 9, when two sister missionaries brought us the fullness of the gospel of Jesus-Christ. At this moment i am a student at Brigham Young University and i'm currently studying to become a Physical Therapist.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because since was little i knew that in the Roman Catholic church, i wasn't satisfied spiritually. I felt that their was a church that had all the answers that i was in searched of, which through prayer i was able to find it. Being able to learn about the teachings in the Latter-day Saints, i have gained a witness through the Holy Ghost that they are true. My relationship with God has increased.

How I live my faith

I serve a two year mission in Sydney Australia and i was called among the Latino community. I loved every bit of teaching the people in Australia about Jesus-Christ and his atonement. I also have the privilege to work in the temple were i help every worthy member make covenants with God.
