Hi I'm Valerie

I am a Mormon, I'm from Colombia. I grew up in the church, and I am a current LDS sister missionary.

About Me

I am from Colombia and i have lived in another parts of South America. My main language is Spanish but i can communicate well in English and French. I a Mormon, I have always been.Most of my family is LDS: my siblings, parents and other family relatives. The ones that aren't are Catholic but i love them and they are also great people. I am a LDS member since my birth, and i am happy to be a member of the church. So i have passed thru everything: Primary, Young Women, Seminary, Institutes, YSA wards, Relief Society and more. I will become a LDS Sister Missionary in soon. I am a Colombian Woman, who is in college seeking a professional degree,a sister missionary and a person who wants to progress in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because be a Mormon having happiness. I am a Mormon because my trials, and experiences in the past, have helped me to discover that the church and its teachings are true. For me, to be a mormon and know that my Savior lives and His church is again restored in the earth is as simple and easy to understand as saying "2+2= 4" In my Heart the teachings of the Gospel make sense and i have felt the Spirit testifying me that these things are true. There was a time when i was rebel and i didn't want to come to church. My dad told me "if you don't learn anything and you feel that this is untrue, you can never come again". Of course, I lost. The church and this Gospel is true and I am a mormon because i felt in my heart that this is the correct path. I have felt God's Love, receive his blessings when i follow the commandments and have the powerful experience on the atonement in my life. With all these blessings, and powerful teachings the question here should be "Why are you not a Mormon?"

How I live my faith

The most important part for me is living my faith each day by doing simple steps. Everyday i feel the necessity to pray when i wake up, at meal times, and when i go to bed. Scripture study in the morning is much better than stuidying it in the night. i also live my faith when i am kind and nice to others. been in a negative mood won't make me feel the spirit. I try to fulfill my callings in the church, volunteer and be a good neighbour and friend.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Valerie
The purpose of missionaries is to help all to come unto Christ. Missionaries want that everybody can find the hapiness of the atomenet and feel the love of Christ. Missionaries are going to teach what Christ would teach if He comes into your Home. Missionaries are going to teach you about the plan of Happinsess God has for you and they will answer you questions like: Who Am I? Where i come from? Where i am going? Is there a true Church in this world? Why i need to come unto Christ? and What is God's plan for me? So let the missionaries enter to your home, their message can be a life-changing message for you!
