Hi I'm Selena Ortiz

I love the gospel and I am excited to share it with others. I am a Mormon. I know it, I live it, and I love it.

About Me

My name is Selena. I love to play sports such as football, basketball and a bit of soccer. I am currently preparing to serve a mission. I head out to the MTC in a couple of days. I am the first in my family to be able to serve a mission and I couldn't be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I was converted to the Gospel with my family at age eleven. Every week as the missionaries would come to our home, instantly I could feel the Spirit. I knew that everything they taught was true. Everyday I strive to live the Gospel of Christ and strive to be like Christ and become closer to him. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live. I know that they have a body flesh and bone. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that the scriptures are true. I know that our Heavenly Father loves each and every single one of His children. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I was previously called in the Primary as the second counselor. I loved working with the children and teaching them about the Gospel, as they are the future generation of the Church. I will be in the next 18 months, a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This calling means so much to me, as I draw others unto and closer to Christ and love them for who they are.
