My parents. my sister, my little bother, and I. My sister lives in Provo with her husband, and my little brother lives in Spain with my parents.

Why I am a Mormon

I meet the church in Bolivia because my father and his family are members. I've never gone to church in Bolivia. When my family move to Spain, I was nine years old. My father started to take my siblings and I to the church. I enjoyed going to church every Sunday because I learned about Jesus Christ. In that time, the missionaries started to come home. We received to lessons to get baptized. During the lessons, I felt that everything was true, and the book of Mormon was true. After we listened the lessons, My sister and I had the desire to get baptized. We talk to my parents, and my mum didn't want us to baptized. In that time, we needed our parents' permission to get baptized. My sister and I couldn't get baptized because my mother didn't give us her permission. We decide to wait until we turn eighteen years old. I have been waiting nine years to get baptized. I went to church every Sunday. I assisted to seminary every morning, and I went to the activities in the church. When I turned eighteen years old, I decided to take this big step, and get baptized. I was afraid because I thought that it wasn't necessary to get baptized. At the end, the missionaries gave the lessons, and I got baptized. The they of my baptism was special for me. I felt that I made the best decision in my life. I know that the church is true because I feel it in my heart, and the Spirit testifies me of the veracity of the book of Mormon. The book of Mormon has helped me in the hardest moments in my life.
