Hi I'm Alan Rios Alverdi

I'm a mormon, from Mexico, and just leaving to a mission.

About Me

I'm just graduating from high school, and going soon to a mission in Chile. I moved a lot from house to house, school to another my entire life, i've lived in california for a while and attended junior high over there. I like exrecising and going to the GYM. I like learning things: programing, astronomy, music, laws... But most of all i love learning about the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to my parents, they being Mormons for a long time (a blessing i appreciate very much) . But the reason i live my faith, i'ts the testimony i have of the gospel, of Jesus Christ and that this is His church. It isn't hard at all, in fact, it brings more happiness than anything else you could have in this life.

How I live my faith

One of the most important aspects of how i live my faith is that i am constrained to be the best i can be, to do the best i can do, and always trying to be better. We have an etternal goal to become like God, and to get there we know we have to pay the price. If the things we do or avoid doing as members of the church seem too much for some people is because of that, we want to get there so much, and also we know the only way to do that is to do the things we do. We won't dare slowing down.
