Hi I'm Spencer Rejas

I love to serve in any way I can, whether it's within my church calling or helping someone clean their apartment. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Although I was born in Peru I was only there a few short months before moving to the United States. I have lived in Florida, Utah, Nevada, and Indiana. There were a few cities we moved to within each State as well. I did not grow up in a Military background, we just moved around a lot when I was younger. During this time I devolped a love for meeting new people. Everyone I met was different and everyone I met has taught me something, whether about myself or about relationships as a whole. This love has helped me grow as a person and build friendships that will last a lifetime. As far as hobbies or interests are concerned, I love anything that involves being physically active. Mosty recently I have taken up cycling. Not only does it keep me fit but it adds to my sense of adventure by allowing me to see parts of the city I might have otherwised missed. Along those same lines I like to go rock climbing, or bouldering, and I love playing soccer and volleyball.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have been a member my whole life. Unfortunately I have had the opportunity to see what life is like without the church. It was during this time of inactivity that the decision came to begin to come to church again and live the gospel. Not because it was all I had ever known, but because I had the desire to develop my own testimony. It's been a journey since then but I am so grateful for the testimony that has, and will continue to, grow within me. I know this church is true. I know that true happiness only comes from living the teachings of the gospel. I know that Christ came to earth and suffered for all of our sins, and it is only through that suffering, that Atonement of Jesus Christ, that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father. I am so grateful for this knowledge and to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

Not only do I love to meet new people but I love to serve people as well. The church provides so many opportunities to serve one another. Currently I have been called to be a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Chicago, Illinois. There I will have the wonderful opportunity to share the gospel for 2 years with those I meet.
