Hi I'm Charles Longino

I am from good Ole' Louisiana! I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Louisiana all my life. I love to play music, trombone is my primary instrument! I also love to swim. I also like to skateboard. Before I left on a mission I attended the University of Louisiana at Monroe. I am currently serving a mission in the Farmington New Mexico Mission. The best mission in the world!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons! When I was growing up I always went to church every week but when I was 10 years old my father left the church and I soon found myself as the only member in my household. The fact that I stayed in the church through those times is in a large part a direct result of good friends who truly loved me. Also, even though my Dad left the church he still provided tons of support for me! He is a great father. Some time during high school I started to need a personal testimony of the gospel in order for me know which path I should take. This testimony did not come easily, it took a lot of hard work and time spent studying to finally prepare myself to receive an answer from God! On December 7,2013 I received my first real, recognized witness that the gospel was true! Since that time I have completely changed the course of my life and I plan on walking the path my Father would have me take for the rest of my life. I am a Mormon because of good friends, a loving ward, a awesome Dad, a lot of hard work and message that is true!

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a two year mission. I live my faith by inviting all to come unto Christ! I also live it by striving to always reach out to others despite what I am going through personally, rather it be through service or through something as small as a smile.
