Hi I'm Ivana! :)

I'm from Uruguay, I'm serving as a full time missionary and I'm a mormon! :D

About Me

I was born and raised in Montevideo, Uruguay. I love photography, watermelon, swimming and playing the guitar. I am currently serving a mission in the Utah, St George Mission (The best mission in the world) for 18 months. My family consists of my Mom, Dad, me and 3 more siblings. My sister got married recently whilst I was on my mission, my oldest brother is serving a mission in Argentina and the youngest is 14 and living at home being spoiled. I love spending time with family, friends and playing sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised being a member of this church but as I grew up there was a moment in my life when I started to gain my own testimony, I started to have a personal relationship with my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ. I know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God, it has answered my questions. I know that this book is true. Joseph Smith translated it by the power of God and restored the church of Jesus Christ back to the earth. He is a prophet of God, he saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. He restored the priesthood authority that allows us to do the saving ordinances of the Gospel in order to return to live in God's presence. I know all of these things because I have studied, pondered and prayed about that Book. Heavenly Father answers my prayers and confirms to me spiritual truths. I am a member of this church also because this is the church of Jesus Christ, we follow his teachings and we live His Gospel. I know that He is my Savior, that he bled and died for me, but He also was resurrected, He lives today! If we truly repent He can help us to change and He forgives our sins. His atoning sacrifice gives us strength and helps us to do great things, to overcome weaknesses and problems; with His help we can become who our Heavenly Father wants us to be. We have a living prophet; he directs, leads and guides us. Temples are the House of the Lord and heaven on earth! Such a sacred place.
