Hi I'm Luis Gonzalez

I grew up in Arizona where I later joined the LDS church and found what I was looking for. Currently serving in Ukraine L'viv.

About Me

I became the first member of the church in my family at the age of 10. I was pretty young when I chose to join the LDS church. 5 years later my mother got baptized and became the second member in my family. From then on in later years more and more family have joined us in our new faith. I am grateful to have found Jesus Christ. Becuase I know these things to be true, I want everyone to partake of my joy so I have decided to serve a mission. I am currently serving in the Ukraine L'viv Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because when the missionaries first set foot inside of our house I immediately felt something which i later learned was the Holy Spirit. At the young age of 10 I knew that the teachings of the church and what the missionaries would share every time they visited were true. I knew that I was on the right path when I chose to get baptized. Not only did my life change, but so did the situations my family was in. The amount of support that we received from the members was outstanding and impossible to forget.

How I live my faith

My branch is a fairly small one. We may not have celebrations or reunions as great as wards but the feeling of warmth and love can be felt. Everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand and there is always someone available at any hour. Charity is the Pure Love of Christ, and I am a firm believer in serving your fellow man. Material things are great and all, but Spiritual experiences are treasures.
