Hi I'm Joaquin

I am from Lima- Peru. (South America) The only child in my family. I love sports, music, dance and "Dota 2" and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I like sports. I love soccer, volleyball and water-polo but I also play basketball, handball and others if i learn how to play. I like to hear music too. I like to sing but i didn't sing very good at all. I used to play some instruments like the guitar, drums, saxophone and some other instruments original from my Country (Peru). I speak Spanish very good (natal language) and then a little bit of English and German. I finish High School at 2014 and now at 2015 I am serving a mission in Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I am 18 by the way. I love technology and all that is related too. I love video game and Computer Games. My favorite one now "Dota 2" (Computer one).

Why I am a Mormon

So, My mom was member of this Church, also teach me about God, Jesus and the Church. But of course, she don't obligate me to be a member. I just see by myself and have my testimony about this. Also, I receive the lessons from the Missionary from the Church, they teach me also about that. And I came to know that this were true, by praying to God of this Things. So, I can also see the blessings from being member of the LDS Church. I know that Heavenly Father love me, and he is always with me. Sometime in little things, but he is always with me and blessing my life and guiding my way. Also, being member of the Church doesn't mean, that my life is gonna be perfect, all we need to pass trials, all we need to pass truth life. I only say that this Gospel, give us the strength to pass over those things. I can really see, that God hear us and answer us. With this Gospel, we can understand, where we did came from? why we are here? and where are we going after this life? Also I get to know that I can live with my Family for ever, and that we have a Prophets in this latter days, that guide us and tell us all that God wants for us. Also that are some and more Doctrines and Teachings that have been restored in this days, truth this, Gospel, Prophets, The Book of Mormon (Other Testament of Jesus) and this Church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. And that's why I get baptize and I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I was a Mormon since i was 9. So I have contribute to my Church a lot, they have so may activities and I past primary and then join to the youth group (from 12 to 17). So i was growing and learning there and have some callings like the president of one group from the youths from 14 to 16 years old. Then i was called to be on a Self-Reliance program. And gave some classes to youths and seniors. I see the blessings from my Heavenly Father in my life and I am so grateful to be member of the LDS Church. I love help people and do service so then I send my papers to serve a mission and help others and share what i know about the Church and to find the truth, peace and comfort that they need in their lives through this Gospel. So I was called to serve a mission in Wisconsin. From October 2015 to October 2017. After that I will continue with my life and always try to help other and share my believes.
