Hi I'm Josue Puente

Grew up in beautiful Chicago! Serving my LDS mission in San Jose, CA. Music is my life. I love my family #1. Yup, I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the awesome city of Chicago! I have been a part of the LDS church all my life and what a blessing that has been. I went through some trials during my earlier life just like anyone else but i know that it was this gospel that made me strong and made me the person who i am today. Currently i am serving as a full time missionary in the San Jose California mission. I have been on my mission for a year now and sharing the message of how we have a loving Heavenly Father is just the best! I love meeting others and helping others too. Big music fanatic. When i go home in a year i either plan to go to BYU-Idaho or UIC in Chicago. I plan to be a Pediatrician or a Anesthesiologt. My dream have a wonderful family just as the one i was able to grow up in and keep enjoying what this church and my father in heaven have in-store for me

Why I am a Mormon

Why i am a Mormon? I'm a Mormon because Ive discovered that's what brings joy, happiness, and blessings into my life. I have been a Mormon all my live never went through conversion but born into the church. Although i was born into the church at a point of my life i had my doubts.. however like James said ask unto god and he will give you the knowledge you seek if its with a sincere heart, i did ask. After reading the book Mormon and opening my mind to the truth at church and listening with sincerity i gained my own personal testimony. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and through him the gospel was restored. The Book of Mormon is the truth written by other prophets of god I know that through Heavenly Fathers plan we can be together with our family's forever in the presence of God and Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I previously shared my passion for music with the church through being the pianist for my congregation. I also enjoy going out a lot with the missionary's from my area to preach the gospel of the church and help others come unto Christ. I also spend a lot of time encouraging the youth of the church and others that are not part of the church to attend church and activities that we have so that we may bond and love one another like how Christ once said.
