Hi I'm Jocy

Hey! Well, I've been born and raised in Ecuador and right now I'm serving a full-time mission in Chile. :)

About Me

I have been a LDS member since birth, and just recently decided to serve a mission which is in Chile. I like to read books, to write fiction-fantasy, learn any sort of 'difficult' labelled language (English, some Chinese (Mandarin)), baking small things and drawing. As any other youth, listening to music as well though I don't have a preference. I enjoy good video games and thriller movies; pop-corn, flan, and jelly are three of my most favorite things in the world. I plan to study Languages as a career and then move to the U.S.A.. Love almost all animals, but spiders scare me to death. I'm a happy person!

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born within the security of this Church, it doesn't mean I didn't chose to stay. I was happy to baptize when my father asked me, and I have found happiness and comfort with the Gospel. I have seen how harsh the world can be, and how hard the father of lies tries to beat each one of us down, which is more the reason I chose to stay. Not really for me, but for my future family and friends, to try to save them from the claws of evil. I'm a mormon, and I'm happy with the path I've chosen.

How I live my faith

While in the Young Women, I used to be the president for both, Laurels and Mia Maids, and was then called as the secretary of the Young Women presidency of my ward. I also served as the teacher for the Sunbeam class. I also teach seminary classes when the teacher isn't able to. I go to church every Sunday if my health allows me to, and usually hang out with people whose principles go according the teachings of the Church.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Jocy
We don't really help only those who are mormons but just anybody in need. Personally, my family's only way to help is through donations among other things we do as members of the church. In my country, the church has organized several campaigns to help handicap people, special people and those who suffered from natural causes, (Recently an earthquake hit a part of Ecuador, and the church was quick to answer.). Jesus Christ taught us to love and help our brethren, and to me, brethren isn't just the members of the church but rather everybody. We do not close our doors to anybody regardless their background or religious history. So, no, we do not help only other Mormons. We help anyone in need. Show more Show less
