Hi I'm Valerie Villalobos

I grew up in Mexico. I'm now serving as a full-time missionary in the England London South mission.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I was born and raised in Hidalgo, Mexico. I am a really happy person, I like volleyball, I like to play the piano, and I like the gospel of Jesus Christ. A year ago, I applied to BYU in Provo, Utah, and God gave me the opportunity to study in this awesome university. It has been a challenge for me to get used to the costumes of a new country, a new language, to be far from my family, to make new friends, and to keep up with college; but God has given me the strength to slowly overcome these problems. Now I have decided to serve him being a full-time missionary. I´m currently serving in the England London South Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. The gospel of Jesus Christ allows me to know where I came from, where am I going, and what is my purpose in life. I am a Mormon because I want to be with my family for eternity. I am a Mormon because I have felt in my heart that this is true. I know that God is our Heavenly Father and that we are his loved children. He doesn't want us to fail or to be sad, he has put us in this earth to triumph. I know that he lives, I know that he has the power to transform our lives, we just have to draw near to him. I testify that he is real, that he is at the door, just waiting for us to knock.

How I live my faith

As a missionary, I dedicate all my time, my talents, and my effort to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. I share with others the joy that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me. God has given me everything, and I know I can't thank him enough, but I am dedicating this time of my life to show him how much I love him. I strive to follow his example day by day. I learn of him in the Book of Mormon, and communicate with him trough prayer. Even tough I'm not perfect and I fall constantly, I can always begin again thanks to Jesus Christ, who has given his life to save me. I know that he listen to me and wants me to succeed in my challenges. He is everything to me, he is my friend, my savior, and my redeemer.
