Hi I'm Brian Gordillo

I'm from California! I love tennis! I'm a missionary in Philadelphia! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi! My name is Brian Gordillo and I'm a student at BYU- Idaho. I enjoy playing tennis while I'm on break from school at home in California. I did not like the snow but after being up in Rexburg, Idaho I did not have much of a choice! I am the youngest of four, I have two sisters and one brother. My siblings each are two years apart from eachother in age and I am 12 years younger than my brother who is the closest in age to me! I will be serving in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia mission starting the 27th of May of 2015! I am super excited to serve the people of Philadelphia for 2 years!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that our Heavenly Father's plan IS the plan of happiness. It is the only way we can have true happiness. I know this because the scriptures testify of its truth and I can testify of it as well. I am so extremely grateful for all the blessings that I receive by following the path that He has set for us. I know that my Savior lives and that He suffered and died for our sins. He created a way for us to feel His eternal love; to return to Him someday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending my Sunday meetings every Sunday. One thing I really enjoy about going to church is that it gives me the time I need to focus on myself and on my Savior as I read the scriptures and follow along during our classes and as I learn from the testimonies shared by others during sacrament meeting. As I keep going to church I learn how to become a better disciple of Christ, I can feel my testimony strengthen, and I can feel my faith in Jesus Christ and in our Heavenly Fathers eternal plan grow.
