Hi I'm Keyyan Lugo

I grew up in Texas. I graduated from high school June 2015. I like to play sports and read. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play sports, particularly basketball and I like to run also. I also like to read books and I am always willing to learn something new. I also like to play video games, but I try not to play too much. I can be kind of shy when it comes to meeting new people, but I try to work through my shyness so that any interactions between me and other people won't be awkward. I am currently 19 years old and I am about to go serve a mission in El Salvador.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I truly believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God. I have been a Mormon all of my life. My parents were Mormons when I was born, so naturally I was baptized when I was 8 years old. Even though I have been a member of the church all of my life; I didn't always like going to church when I was younger, but now I love going to church and I love being a member of the church because it truly brings happiness to my life. I feel happy when I go to church and when I talk with the members in the church. The Gospel of Jesus Christ only brings happiness and goodness to my life and that is why I will always follow him and continue to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I would like to say that I didn't always know that the Book of Mormon was true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God to restore our church. I didn't know this, but I kept hearing from members' testimonies that the Book of Mormon was true and that Joseph Smith did see God, the Father, and Jesus Christ and that he did restore the church, and so I took it upon myself to know if the Book of Mormon was true and if it truly came from God. I started to read the Book of Mormon and I prayed daily to know if the Book of Mormon was true, and I didn't receive an answer right away, but within time, God granted unto me my answer and I then knew that the Book of Mormon is true and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the church of God restored in this latter days.

How I live my faith

I go out with the missionaries whenever I can. I am a branch missionary so if the missionaries need to go with them for any reason; I go. Currently, I am serving a mission in the El Salvador San Salvador East Mission and I did this because I love the Lord and I desire to serve him the best that I can for these 2 short years.
