Hi I'm Laura

I'm from the beautiful Colombia. I've been studying English for 2 years in Provo, UT. I'm serving a mission soon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from Colombia which is located in South America. My country has a lot of flaura and fauna, our food is natural, and everyone is friendly and open. I've been going to an institute and I already know English, so I'm so excited to start studying Biology in the university after I get back from my future mission for the LDS church.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know this is the only true church established by God through Prophets and apostles. I'm in a safe place because all the commandments given to us are for our good, I wouldn't be here if it was a place where hate and discord were taught. Everything it's taught in the Church is to help us grow and become more like Jesus Christ, who was perfect. I know the Savior died for each and everyone of us and that with the help of his atonement we can repent from our sins and become clean again through baptism and the Holy Ghost. I know that God and Jesus Christ live and are one in purpose. I know Christ resurrected the 3rd day after he died and that will allow us to resurrect as well when he comes again. I love this gospel with all my heart and I know as we obey the commandments we will be blessed. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

When I was younger, me and some friends went to a sister's house to help her out with some chores she needed to get done. Her mom was a very old and sweet lady, that sister had to take care of her mom, so I felt we were a great help for her and her family. That day, we prayed before starting and we could really feel the spirit giving us the confirmation of the good work we were doing. That and many others service experiences have contributed to my growth and love towards others. I know that when we serve others we are also serving the Lord and that is the best motivation one can have to do everything, though it may seem a small act, those to whom we serve appreciate it so much.
