Hi I'm Julian Figueroa

I grew up in Tucson, Arizona. I will be serving a mission in San Jose, California. I love to laugh. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm the baby of 4, an older sister and 2 brothers. I am full blood Mexican even though I don't look it. Right after high school my oldest brother and I took a trip to Hawaii for 3 weeks and there I fell in love with the Polynesian people! I attended a semester at UVU and lived in Provo for a year.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from a family where my Mom is Mormon and my Dad is Catholic. It was hard growing up where it was my mom and my siblings going to church alone and then as I got into high school it was just my Mom and I because my other siblings were moved out. At that point I decided I didn't want to be going to church every Sunday or participating there, I would rather hang out with my friends. Then I moved out and I felt like something was missing from my life. I still had my family, I was doing fine financially, but what I was missing was Jesus Christ in my life. So I prayed. I had the strongest impression that I needed to go to church. And not just any church but the Church of Jesus Christ Of Later-Day Saints. Why?! Because it's the only church with the fullness of the gospel. With a living Prophet, with the priesthood power, with the correct authority and ordinances. So ever since that moment I haven't missed a Sunday at church and I decided to serve a mission:) If you want to learn more you can email me at julian.figueroa@myldsmail.net

How I live my faith

I try the best I can to be a friend to every one I meet. There are a lot of people that feel alone in the world and just need a Friend. All Heavenly Father can ask of us is to be better everyday and to give an effort. I know that he loves us and loves it when we do what's pleasing to him.
