Hi I'm Chris

I'm from Colombia. I love Cultures, Languages, Music, Exercise, Being in nature, And I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! my name is Christian and I am member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was not always a member of this Church, I actually grew up being a Catholic. I have been blessed with really good parents and two brothers. Growing up I played a lot of video games and watched a lot of TV which can be considered as a waste of time. But At age 15 when I found the Church I not only came to believe more truly in Jesus Christ but also my whole lifestyle changed. I decided to spend my time more productively. And since then I've learned how to speak English, I worked as an English teacher for a year and a half, I taught myself how to play the guitar, I got really into working out and having a healthy lifestyle. And I have come to appreciate more nature and I love adventure! Currently I am serving as a Missionary for my Church in the England Birmingham Mission and I absolutely love it! It has been one of the Best decisions in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I felt through the Holy Spirit of God that this is His Church and I needed to act on that feeling. I met with the missionaries, they taught me about the Church and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I read, pondered and prayed about those teachings and the answer came very clear. Since I joined, my life has never been the same. I have a stronger relationship with my parents and brothers. I don't feel regrets for past mistakes, because I have repented and God has forgiven me, I have receive a lot of blessings, I feel happiness, I know who I am and why I am on this earth and I know who God is and I try to keep a good relationship with Him. I still make mistakes and I am far away from being perfect, but I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and as I come unto Him I can find peace in my life and my imperfections don't matter anymore. At the end, I am a Mormon simply because It makes me happy! We know if something is good by the fruits it brings and the fruits I have seen since I am a member of this Church are absolutely fantastic! Guidance, Protection, Strength,Support, Encouragement, knowledge, Love, Grace, Peace, Joy, Gifts, Talents, everything I am and have today is because of God and this Church. I do not know where, or what I would be without Jesus Christ and without His Gospel. He has saved my life in so many ways that I can only say, Yo Se Que Vive Mi Salvador!

How I live my faith

To live my faith, I Just Try to follow Jesus Christ and be the best kind of person I can be. I go to Church every Sunday, I also go to Institute, which is a program of the Church that helps us learn more about the scriptures and increase our Faith in Jesus Christ. I also go out teaching with the Missionaries, who are Teachers for the Church and Visit people who need help both Spiritually as Physically. because of that I have been able to help a lot of people change their lives. Being a member of this Church has provided me with many service opportunities, like helping people with Building Projects, painting houses, taking care of kids, Visiting the sick and afflicted and so on. By doing this things I have been able to feel great Joy and happiness in my life. Something else that I do to live my Faith is Prayer, which gets me closer to God. I also study the Scriptures, and through that I have come to know that God lives and that Jesus Christ is my Personal Saviour. I know who I am and what my purpose in life is and I will soon be serving a mission, where for two years, I will be sharing with people how they can come to know and follow Jesus Christ and find happiness and purpose in their lives.
