Hi I'm Carla Vela

I grew up in Utah. I love watercolor paintings. I am currently serving a mission in Virginia Chesapeake. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student who was born and raised in the church. After returning from my mission, I plan to continue my education. I'm the youngest in my family and they mean the world to me. I love being creative, and I'm a huge watercolor and plant enthusiast.

Why I am a Mormon

I know with all of my heart that this church true. I have felt the spirit testify it to me, and now I want others to know of this truth. I love being a mormon and I want to share this restored gospel with others. I'm eternally grateful for my parents raising me in the true church of Jesus Christ, it is the core of who I am and everything I do is centered around my beliefs. Knowing what I know makes me so HAPPY! I know that true happiness comes from Christ. I LOVE being a mormon!

How I live my faith

I love attending church every week and learning about my Savior. My latest calling was serving the women in my ward as the Relief Society secretary. It was such a blessing getting to know all the women in my ward and seeing how they tried to live Christlike lives. I loved sharing our love of the gospel with them. And now I have the opportunity to share the gospel and serve the people of Virginia Chesapeake!
