Hi I'm Jessie Zuniga

I am a Missionary, Gamer, Coin collector, and I am a Mormon!!!!

About Me

I am a huge video game fan, I play mostly on Nintendo consoles and on the PC. Right now I am Serving in the Tennessee Nashville mission, I really have grown to have an appreciation for the Bible and what the message it gives throughout the entire world. I Know that Jesus Christ came to this Earth to die for our sins, and only through his everlasting atonement all men can be save through his grace and mercy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith just like my mother and father were. I grew up being it the Church my whole life. But that does not always mean that I have been faithful to my beliefs my whole life. When i was in high school I was having doubts about my beliefs I had questions that I could not answer. Like "If God loves me so much how come there is so many hardships?" But one day I was sitting in my room wondering if I really had a reason on this Earth what my purpose was. While I was doing that i noticed a book under a bunch of clothes, at first i thought it was my copy of the book I had to read for English class. So i picked it up, and it was a Book of Mormon. When I picked it up I got this overwhelming prompting to read it. I opened it up to the last book called Moroni, and I read the first verses out of the book pondering on them for a few moments i decided that i should pray. I did so and I felt a strong since of peace and ever since that point I have always gone to the Lord when I need answers.

How I live my faith

Once a month I go out with my Dad and we go home teaching it's where we go to other family's once a month and give them a short lesson about Jesus' gospel, then we ask the family's if there is anything we can do for them, if they say yes my Dad and I go and help them with whatever they need done. Right Now I am serving a Mission in Tennessee. In a mission I take 2 years of my life to go out and share the message of Jesus Christ's restored gospel to others. A mission is also a voluntary thing the young men of the faith can do, no one is ever forced to serve.

What is the priesthood?

Jessie Zuniga
The priesthood is Gods power and authority given to men, They can performing ordinances such as baptism, and all this is done in the name of Gods son Jesus Christ. At the age of 12 members of the church can hold the Aaronic priesthood which has three parts Deacon, Teacher, and Priest. Each part has their own special duty within the church. We also have a line of authority where a person who holds the priesthood can trace their authority all the way back to Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Jessie Zuniga
Being a Mormon is great, there are so many blessings of being a Mormon. For one is the knowledge that our Heavenly Father speaks to us and we can speak to Him. Another is the unity in the Church and the foundation it is built upon, that foundation being Jesus Christ. In this world of many words we a foundation that is sure, there is so many differences between us all that is great to know that there is one thing we all share as members of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. It is our Testimony of Jesus Christ, which is summarized best in the words of a prophet, "And now after the many testimonies which have been given of him, this is the testimony last of all which we give of him, THAT HE LIVES"-Joseph Smith Jr. Show more Show less
