Hi I'm Joe Castañeda

I live in San Diego and am preparing for my mission,

About Me

I am 16 years young. I like to swim, play water polo, and lacrosse. I love being around nature, especially the beach. I am a Boy Scout of America and i'm working on my Eagle. I love my freinds and family just like any other human being. I am a sophomore in high school and will be switching to middle college next year. My religion is everything to me and I owe my life to the gospel. I want to get this clear before you go through my profile, any thing I've ever accomplished or ever will accomplish, that i post on here, isn't so that I can boast about my own strength but to testify that God can, will, and has made the efforts of weak and imperfect people like me into blessings in the lives of others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have prayed to know and have felt the spirit testify that this is the true church.

How I live my faith

I attend church every sunday for the full three hours. I attend mutual once a week. Every morning before school i wake up at 5:30 to go to a seminary class. I have been able to serve in my community though the Boy Scout program and different Mormon Helping Hands events. I am the 1st Assistant in the Priest Quorum and have been President of the Deacons Quorum and Teachers Quorum.
