Hi I'm Tyler Vasquez

I grew up in Huntington Beach, California. Called to serve in the Italy Milan mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a family of four with my parents and one older sister. I am typically a sports kind of guy, but I can absolutely just nerd-out with the best of them. I love going on adventures, whether they're little like going somewhere I've never been before, or maybe going on a little bigger adventure like skydiving! I grew up in Huntington Beach also called Surf City, California, so I love the ocean and during summer it acts as a second home for me. I am currently serving in the Italy Milan mission which is an absolute dream mission for me. Then after my mission, I will attend BYU Provo and go through their Air Force ROTC to eventually become a pilot!

Why I am a Mormon

There are a thousand elements to my testimony and as to why I am a Mormon, but it really all comes down to the fact that I've felt the spirit way too many times to ever deny the truthfulness of this gospel. Nor would I ever want to deny that sweet, peaceful, powerful spirit that this gospel brings. I love this church. I love all the many beautiful blessings that have come into my life just from living this gospel. And I love feeling the presence of our Heavenly Father in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living as Christlike as I can, and hopefully standing as a good example to my friends. I am proud to say that growing up with mostly non-LDS friends, I have never taken a sip of alcohol or taken any drugs. I also lived my faith and took great pride in leading the other young men in my church. I hope to be an example to them in living a spiritual, purposeful life, just as others set an example to me as I was growing up. And as for now, I am living my faith by using these next two years of my life to serve a mission and bring the light of the gospel into the lives of others.
