Hi I'm Francisco

I live in Honduras. I study to become an industrial engineer. And the best thing in my life... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A Honduran guy who loves football (soccer), mathematics and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Catholic home, but never felt I could progress. During 2013, I met a wonderful girl, she later became my girlfriend and almost sure my future wife. She told me about the Mormon church. So, I went few weeks later. My heart was warm during that Sunday. The following days were frustrating, my family didn't accept the fact I was going to be a Mormon. But I always prayed to God and to receive the opportunity to become a member of the church. I wasn't able to have the missionaries at my house so I contacted a pair of sisters from Salt Lake City via Mormon.org. They offered to call me once a week to teach me the lessons. That was such an amazing experience. The prayers, the hymns, everything was full with the Spirit just like having them in front of me. Some months later, on September 20th, 2014, I was baptized and became member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Days Saints. The reason why I am a Mormon: I find love, peace, forgiveness and a new opportunity every day thanks to Jesus Christ. My life has been better. I'm thankful for that.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is something amazing and beautiful because you get to understand the importance of service. I deeply love helping young men, being an example and guiding them through several activities. Once a week, we gather to practice sports at the ward's court to keep away from wrong things. Visiting families is a wonderful way to be more like our Saviour; I get to know people, from the youngest to the eldest, listen their problems and offer help. Without any doubt, every day I have a different way to learn and help.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

We don't worship Joseph Smith. We worship God our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. However we thank Joseph Smith for being part of the restoration of the Gospel. Show more Show less
