Hi I'm Melissa Vasquez

I'm Guatemalan, a soccer lover, a happy missionary serving in the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born of Goodly parents who are currently serving in El Salvador San Salvador East mission, I'm the youngest of four children, I'm blessed with 4 nephews, 3 nieces and I'm the happiest aunt in the whole world, I love soccer and I'm a full time missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a Member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, since I was a little girl my parents taught me the importance of living the principles of The Church and to understand the love of my Savior Jesus Christ, I'm grateful for the chance I had to be born inside the Gospel. I love my family and I know family is forever. I'm a Mormon because I truly know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true Church on Earth,established by Jesus Christ and Restored by His prophet Joseph Smith. I love my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ, I love His Gospel an I'm grateful for His Atonement. I can't put a number to the blessings that have come from following the example of The Lord, it has saved me and my family and have provided joy beyond description in my life.

How I live my faith

I'm a Mormon missionary for the period of 18 months. Assigned to Temple Square, I got the opportunity to serve for three months in the Nevada Las Vegas mission, where I help people recognize the Gospel of Jesus Christ on this earth and the blessings that will come from it, I decided to do so because I have been given many blessings and I want everyone to be able to have the same opportunities and feel the Savior's love. I stand as a witness of God, at all times, in all things, and in all places, I love to read The Book of Mormon, it gives me daily peace and gives me the strength that I need when I go through hard times, I believe there is a reason in every challenge, it makes us become who we need to become.
