Hi I'm Miguel Urbina

I was born and raised in Bogota, Colombia and I moved to the US four years ago. I am a Mormon.

About Me

Some of the things I like to do on a regular basis are to watch movies, play soccer, built legos and dance to Latin music. I am the oldest of four and I am the only boy and in the family (besides my dad of course). I am a college student as well and I am majoring in mechanical engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

At first, I have always been a member of the church because my parents raised me in it, but as I went into my teenager years, I started to actually see why I was part of this Church. To me, there is not other church that makes more sense to me than this one. To me, knowing that God loves us so much, that He has prepared a plan for us so that we can go back to live with him is priceless. To know that Jesus Christ sacrificed his life for us, so that we could repent from our sins and live a better life has is invaluable. I know that God loves us, and because He loves us, he sends prophets to help us find the way to go back to him. I know that the prophet Thomas S. Monson is a seer and revelator for the whole church at this moment in time. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that it is there to clarify, support and some times expand the doctrine or teachings that come from the bible. Lastly, I know that God loves us, and that he wants the best for each and everyone of his children, and that He wants us to live with him once more, and the only way to do so is by following gospel.

How I live my faith

In the church, I am the secretary of the young men's organization, which is a program guided toward teenagers from the ages of 12-18, and that is there to help them grow as people and learn more about what we believe in and why we do what we do. Moreover, I am also preparing to serve a two year mission for the church in the Los Angeles California mission.
