Hi I'm Francis Lestarpe

I was born in Argentina and grew up in Texas. I am currently awaiting my mission date to serve in San Fernando, Cali. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a person from a very peculiar background. I was born in Argentina to Italian parents and had the luck to have an amazing father and mother who both happened to have a love for new cultures, which has led to my family living in several different cities and countries in the American continent. From Argentina to Mexico to the United States we've been moving around experiencing so many different things. I am fluent in both Spanish and English and am currently learning Korean. I am currently awaiting my Date to go and serve a mission in the name of Jesus Christ in San Fernando, California, and I could not be happier to do so.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in the Doctrine that we believe that Jesus taught. We believe that Jesus loved all despite their sins and mistakes and he put the service of others always above himself. While I am not perfect this rings with me so much because of my love for service. As someone who has been extremely lucky thanks to the kindness of others and my Heavenly Father, I want to do whatever I can to help share the word of God with everyone.

How I live my faith

I attend church and try to do whatever is asked of me and more. I go out with missionaries, help with the young men and try to provide whatever service I am capable of. Since I was a young boy I have always tried to be of service to my peers and that has not changed to this day. Service is one of the biggest aspects of my life and I am eager to help whenever i can.
