Hi I'm Santiago Barriga

I was born in Argentina. I'm a pioneer. I'm a mormon.

About Me

My name is Santiago. I'm from Cincinnati, Ohio. I was born in Argentina, but my parents are from Colombia. I am the middle child out of 3. I love sports; Rugby, Soccer, Swimming etc. I love my family and our Chocolate Lab. I went to BYU-Idaho for a semester focusing on Graphic Design, but now I'm on my mission serving in The Best Mission Ever! California Roseville mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the Jesus Christ lives and he is our Savior and Redeemer. I know that he died for us, and took upon himself every single one of our sins. I know that through him every one is saved. I know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. I know that he did translate the Book of Mormon. I that the Book of Mormon is not just a guide but also the word of God; Everyday something tests my faith. Everyday we go through trials, but throughout our struggles I know that I will never be alone. I know that our savior is always with us, he has felt our pains and afflictions. I know that as I strive to do my best and be the best i can be, one day I will be able to live with our Heavenly father and his son Jesus Christ again. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time missionary for The church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I LOVE IT! As missionaries we go around teaching people who will listen to the message about Jesus Christ and the plan God has for us. We teach people of all ages and of many different backgrounds. Everyday I have the opportunity to serve others, no matter if it is cleaning the dishes or mopping the floor. I love to help others, just as Christ did in the past. I know I'm not perfect but I strive to better than the day before.
