Hi I'm Luis Patino Hernandez

I'm Venezuelan and proud! Grew up most of my life in Florida though. I love to surf and play volleyball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Venezuela till the age of seven, when my mom decided to pack our thing and begin a new chapter in a new country. I've lived in "O-Town" Florida ever since (Orlando). I love being active in sport and just in any exciting activity. Volleyball is definitely my favorite sport but I've became pretty passionate about surfing in the past three years. Basically since I've picked up. I love being at the beach no matter how the weather is or how the surf is. Just enjoying the beauty that has been given unto us is worth my drive! In my senior year of high school my teachers would say that I spent more days in the beach then I did in class, lol. I'm not yet in college but I hope that after my mission my mind is set on the right career and profession! But for now, I'm pretty much a beach bum...haha

Why I am a Mormon

As a convert to the church I hold this question near my heart. Why am I a Mormon? Well I can faithfully say that I'm a Mormon because of the faith and testimony that I gained as I discovered and investigated the church.at a young age. The principles and doctrines that it teaches comes directly from the ministry of our Savior and Father in Heaven. His one and only gospel has been restored in this dispensation and through prayers and the witness of the Holy Ghost I can testify that it is true. I'm a Mormon because I know this is His way, "...And now, behold, this is the doctrine of Christ, and the only and true doctrine of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, which is one God, without end. Amen." 2Nephi 31:21 .

How I live my faith

I know that my Heavenly Father has a perfect plan for all of us. I put my faith in Him and his gospel to guid and lead me in the right path. So that His plan will provide me with eternal happiness. I'm super stoked to serve a full time mission and share this with everyone! I am called to serve in the Colorado Denver South Mission, which covers like a third of the state! And as I leave everything behind for two years, my faith will be with Him.
