Hi I'm Jorge Andres Barrezueta

I am from Guayaquil, Ecuador. Grew up in the United States. I will be serving in the Sierra Leone Freetown Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Miami, Florida. I love to go to the beach with my friends and family. I love listening to music and playing piano. I love playing sports. Mainly soccer. Right now I am preparing to serve a mission in Sierra Leone! I can't wait to serve!

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was 14 years old. I started attending church when I was around 10 or 11 years old. At first, I never really saw the importance of the gospel or what it had to offer for me in my life until I was in my Senior year of High School. I was not following the laws and teachings of the gospel and spiritually I was in a dark place in my life. There was a series of events that happened in my senior year of high school that made me want to change the way I was living. I started reading the scriptures, praying more often, attending church activities, and in general just being more active in the church. Slowly but surely I started seeing a change in my life. I needed to make a change in my life about the things I was doing so I decided to stop doing the worldly things I used to do and really focus on living the gospel of Jesus Christ and his teachings. After diligence in praying, pondering, and reading the scriptures, attending church, and repenting for things that I have done in my life, I saw a drastic change in my life. The amount of peace and joy that I have continually felt in my life has been absolutely marvelous. I love the plan that God has for each and every one of us. I know that the Lord will make our burdens light and that the trials we face exist so that we can spiritually grow. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for the sins of the world and that this is his true and living church. I love this gospel and its teachings. I love the blessings that come by living it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures, going to institute, attending church, and living by the teachings of Jesus Christ
