Hi I'm Karla Valdez

Hi! I'm currently serving a full-time mission, I love playing sports, I love to laugh and smile, and I'M A MORMON!

About Me

I'm a 20 year old who is loving the mission in Texas! I'm a convert into the church and I've been a member since I was 11 years old. I love playing sports; such as basketball, badminton, and tennis. I also enjoy going to the movies with family and friends, I like to dance, and I love to eat!

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a member of this church because I've truly felt (and continue to feel) the Holy Ghost bear testimony that this is the true church. As a convert, I had to take the lessons the sister missionaries give before getting baptized. As the missionaries would visit my family and would leave us with commitments to fulfill, I was able to realize the impact the gospel was making into my life. I rapidly realized that as a family we were all getting closer to Christ; and as we did that, there was less conflicts. I know the gospel blesses families and changes lives. I honestly love the gospel of Jesus Christ and I love being able to share his gospel with others!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a light to others, by sharing my testimony and the gospel to all those who are willing to listen, and by helping others in any way I can.
