Hi I'm Gabriel

I grew up in Utah. I play tennis. I have been called to serve in the Philippines Laoag Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play tennis, basketball and soccer (futbol). I am 18 years old. I am preparing to serve a mission, and I have been called to serve in the Philippines Laoag Mission. I am a lifelong member of the LDS church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I Love the Lord Jesus Christ. I have been a grateful recipient of the Lord's Atonement, and I have felt the power there of. I cannot deny the power of Jesus Christ or His Atonement, they are real. The Lord lives. He answers and hears our prayers. I have come to learn that as we pray and ask God for blessings, He is merciful and quick to respond. I know that this is the Lords Church Restored upon the Earth. God speaks to man today. The Heavens have been opened once again. Our Father in Heaven desires to pour His blessings upon us with an utmost urgency, as long as we live worthy to receive them. God has restored His Church through the prophet Joseph Smith. The Holy Priesthood, that Christ Himself as well as His apostles bear, have been restored to the Earth as well, for the benefit of man. God has called Prophets and Apostles today, so that we may be able to hear God's word, through them. God is good. He loves His Children. He want's to be happy, and to return to Him. Because He loves us He has shown us the truth and the light, and has restored his church in its fullness for our well being. And because God loves us, He sent his Son, Jesus Christ, so that we might be saved. Jesus Christ is the only way for us to return to the presence of God. I follow Christ and His Gospel because I have found that I am happy when I do so. I love the Lord and His church. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I have served in many youth group presidencies. I am my bishop's home teaching companion. As a member of the Priest Quorum (young men age 16-18) I bless and administer the Holy Sacrament.
