Hi I'm Jose Silva

I'm 19 and from Connell Washington. West coast is the best coast, I have an twin and I love all music (Mainly EDM). I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am probably God's perfect idiot. I love helping others laugh and be happy. I spend most of my time either in my room making music or living it up with friends. Longboarding, skateboarding, football, basketball, exploring the awesome outdoors, you name it. I am an aspiring DJ and music producer. I love music with a passion, EDM is, for me anyways, what emotions sound like. I joined the church in March 2015 and am now currently serving in the Utah Orem Mission. I love this church. It has brought me eternal happiness and I am eternally grateful for my friends and also Jesus Christ. Still growing and learning everyday. Ever since my baptism I knew I had to share the gospel. Oh yeah I'm also trilingual (English, Spanish, and Portuguese) so I can help a bunch of people! I am the only member in my entire family. It has not been easy but it definitely has been worth living the gospel. I am grateful that Jesus Christ knows me and understands me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found the truth I have been searching for my whole life.it has made me feel true and lasting happiness. My friends were the greatest examples to me and I decided I needed the light and knowledge they had. I asked my friends about the church and they took me the next day. From then on and after studying the scriptures I now know that what I believe in is true and I can't wait to share that truth while on my mission. Understanding what I now had made me realize that I needed to let others know about it as well. Any opportunity I get, I will try to share the gospel. And by no means am I perfect, great or even good at it, but I try my best. Learning about the church has been a great experience to know that this is Jesus Christ's church restored on the earth. I whole heartedly know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. He would not deny it and nor will I. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is true. No one can tell me it's not. I have read it, pondered its message, and prayed. Through the Holy Ghost, I have received a witness that it is true. I love Jesus Christ and what he has done for me. I am eternally grateful.

How I live my faith

Only after a year of being a member, I decided to serve a full two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have a knowledge of the gospel and I can't wait to share it with the people of Orem. I also try to be an example to my family since I'm the only member. I constantly get questions from my friends not in the church about why I joined. I enjoy helping and answering them. I try to be an example everywhere I go. Studying the scriptures everyday and strengthening my testimony is very important for me. It has helped me stay firm in my faith. Also I try to uplift and help others. By serving others I try to follow the example of Jesus and show kindness. I try to serve others when I can. I hate seeing people sad, down, hurt, or otherwise in a bad mood.
