Hi I'm Hector Martinez

I was born in California and raised in New York City. I attend Brigham Young University-Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The world of Literature and Music are what captivate my interest. I love a good camping trip and hiking. A good game of Volleyball always a good way to spend time. I am a very open minded person and love augmenting the knowlege I have and just learning about different things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have deciced for myself to follow the teachings my parents have shown me. My mother and I are converts and my Father is 3rd generation making me 4th. I am a mormon because at a young age I have seen the blessings of the gospel in my life. I have had many opprotunites to grow in my life. I have learned about patience, love, charity and forgiveness. I am a mormon because in the times i have suffred the most pain the Lord has been there for me. He has never abondoned me because I know he is only a prayer away. I have had so many tear filled prayers, I have had to humble myself to the very ground. I suffered with a deep depresiopn due to my family problems and social problems happening in high school I began to feel very alone. I have recieved so many answers and personal revelation and i know this is the true church and that my heavenly father loves me. I know that there is no other gospel that brings as much happiness as this one. I am a mormon because the Lord has answered my prayers and told me that this is where I should be.

How I live my faith

Id love to say that I have lived my faith to the best of my ability the past few years but i havent. Its not until the age of about 17 that I came to the realization of how important these covenants are and how serious they are and what I have made. I have started living my faith by attending church every Sunday. Daily scripture study and upholding my calling as the Elders Quorum Secretary in my YSA ward and BYU-Idaho. I have also recently accpected my mission call to the Paraguay Asuncion North mission and I plan on making it the best 2 years of my life.
