Hi I'm Yessenia Chalas

I'm from the Dominican Republic but I live in the Turks & Caicos Islands I speak three languages Spanish, English and Creole! :)

About Me

I love to draw, read and do things to keep me going and motivated.. I don't say much at times.. I like to spend time with my family and go to the beach I also love food, go fishing and keep myself active..

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel so much with all my heart.. it's fullness contains all the answers and guidance we need to continue to press forward with faith in Jesus Christ.. Sometimes I like to sit and think what my life would be like without this amazing and wonderful gospel and I just can't, Cause one thing I know without it I would be sad and lost. but I'm so grateful for the knowledge I have and for the teachings of the church which help us to become more like Jesus Christ, change and be obedient to the commandments.. I know that as we continue to do these things daily and exercise our faith in him and constantly pray and study our scriptures we will be able to stand firm and receive eternal life at the last day...

How I live my faith

By constantly seeking Heavenly Father in prayer sometimes I think about it as a conversation which helps me to feel He's love more and how much he cares and listen to our prayers.. I like studying my scriptures as well is a way of receiving personal revelation and as we apply the things we learn from them we are able to grow and increase our faith and see things differently..

Who are the Mormons?

Yessenia Chalas
Back home when I used to go out to teach with the sisters missionaries people always ask us what Mormon means? or Is Mormon the name of your religion? So we would explain that we are Christians and that The Book Of Mormon is not a Bible it is another testament of Jesus Christ and that these are the records from the people of the Americans and that Mormon was a prophet and he is the one who compiled all these books together and that's why is called the book of mormon and also that's how people identified us sense is easier for them to say..
