Hi I'm Graciela

Sister Missionary in the Texas McAllen Mission! Criminal Justice major, Animal Lover, Gym Rat, Trilingual! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 21 years old. I graduated from Ulster County Community College with an associates in Criminal Justice on May 2014. I would love to eventually work in the FBI in the investigations field and also work with sexually abused children. I served for 6 months in the El Salvador Santa Ana Mission, I am currently serving in the TEXAS MCALLEN MISSION, I return in June 1, 2016. When I return from my mission I plan to study at John Jay School of Criminal Justice and receive a Masters in Criminal Justice and minor in Child Psychology. I LOVE ANIMALS and I love working with children with disabilities. I am a gym rat and horror movie nerd!

Why I am a Mormon

I made the decision to be an LDS member when I was 8 years old and to this day I know I made the right choice. How do I know I made the right choice? Well, because I feel it in my heart. Everything I learned in primary and young womens has shaped my life and who I am till this day. Ever since I was a little girl I couldnt wait to turn 8 so that I could be baptized and when the day came, it was one of the happiest days of my life. Then I couldnt wait to grow up and become a sister missionary! I served 6 months in the El Salvador Santa Ana Mission and now am currently serving in the Texas McAllen Mission.. Being a latter day saint is not just a title. Its a reminder of those who came before my generation and helped build the church and those who restored it as well. And I am forever thankful.

How I live my faith

I was called as ward missionary in my ward. To fulfill my call I go out with the sister missionaries in my ward and do some home teachings with them or help by bringing them investigators. I teach the CTR-B class which is kids from 5-7y.o.a. I also taught Nursery which is children from 1-3 years old. I had a blast teaching these kids and watching them grow physically and spiritually. I am currently serving a mission in McAllen, Texas.
