Hi I'm Brad

Born in SanFrancisco California, I'm a 2nd degree Black belt and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Chilean/Peruvian 2nd degree black belt, Love the sport of fighting. Born in San Francisco and the 49ers are my team. I speak English and Spanish. Blessed to be serving in the Texas Houston South Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

My mom and grandma have been a part of this Church for a long time, but I didn't want to believe in the church just because of them. I wanted to know for myself, I would pray for a couple of years on and off. Every once in a while I would get the feeling that the church was true and I thought I could feel what people called the spirit but then I would go on with my life not following the commandments. I would lose the feeling and I would say to myself," that was just my mind and heart, not the Spirit." I got to the point I stopped going to church and I agreed with myself that I wouldn't waste my time searching for a higher power or a church, because there are to many to decide from. I called myself an apatheist for about a month which pretty much means not caring if there is or isn't a higher power. Until one morning my grandma passed away. I love my grandma, and for most of my life we lived a room away from each other. I would spend time with her almost everyday. I couldn't just not care about a higher power, I wanted to know where my grandma was going. The following days I prayed with the most sincere heart, wanting to know what is true and willing to act on the answer I received. I got my answer over time. It was through reading The Book of Mormon that I would feel the most calm and peace I've ever felt. Even if what I read had nothing to do with the situation I was in at the moment. Reflect on the times you felt the spirit the strongest, and never doubt those feeling in the future. I know this is The Church Of Jesus Christ in these Latter Days.

How I live my faith

I push myself to apply something new every day, to be more like our savior Jesus Christ. I decided to serve a mission and I got called to the best mission there is, the Texas Houston South mission!
