Hi I'm Jimie C. Torres Ortiz

Crazy hair, even crazier dance moves. I don't look this good cus well I'm a happy Taiwan Missionary Mormon

About Me

I was born into the gospel but my mother was a convert. It was not until a year or so ago that I finally wanted to find out for myself if this whole Mormon was true and if what people preached held true and fast as well. I'm still in the process of finding those things out, but at least now I know that certain things about are for real and I've decided to stick around and find out.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have come to find the gospel to be true and nothing has dissuaded me otherwise to the point of wanting to leave. I'm a Mormon because I want to be happy and I have found that being a member has done that for me and my family; I know it's not the same for everyone and I'm not ruling anything out, but it works for me and My Heavenly Father has made me realize that I'm not making a mistake. And no, I'm not being brainwashed either.

How I live my faith

Recently I've been living my faith by deciding to serve a full-time mission for the LDS church and teach God's children in Taiwan about His gospel and about the things that I believe; even after my mission I plan on serving them in any other way possible.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Jimie C. Torres Ortiz
This is something that I myself struggled with at times, especially when asked by non-members and what I have come to find out is that Mormons have an immense sense of gratitude towards Joseph Smith because he was the one that was able to restore the church back in this earth during our lifetime and we thank him because he did this along with countless sacrifices for something that he so strongly believed and that blesses us as faithful members each day. We thank him because of his work and service to the gospel and because he re-started something that had been discontinued for years on end and brought it back through God for us and our families to enjoy. So really, we have a sense of gratitude to him and Jesus and Our Heavenly Father are the ones we worship. Show more Show less
