Hi I'm Andrea Rodriguez

I´m from Mexico. I´m 19 years old, and I am Mormon.

About Me

I love horses and dogs. I like fishing and driving four wheelers. I grew up in the Church and I have a powerful testimony of it. The restored Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought happiness to my life and it has helped me to be a better person day by day. I think it would be very selfish of me if I don't share what it is that brings joy to my life, which is my testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And that is why I decided to go on a mission. I got my mission call last week and I am assigned to serve in Brazil. I am excited to meet the people of Brazil and to share this amazing truth with them, so that they can live it and gain their own testimony.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I have prayed about it with a sincere heart and I received an answer. I can feel the love and confirmation of God that I am in the right path, that this is the only Church on earth with the right authority to guide us. I know that Jesus Christ and our Father in Heaven live and they love us. God prepared a plan of joy and happiness for us to return to His presence, and Jesus Christ is the central figure of that plan. I know He came down to earth to live a perfect life and to suffer and be crucified so that we can repent and return to God´s presence, to fulfill His plan´s purpose. I know that Joseph Smith saw the Father and the Son, that they instructed Him to restore this amazing gospel, so that we can have it now. I know that He received the power of God on earth, which is called the Priesthood. I know that Joseph Smith, being a Prophet of God, translated The Book of Mormon by revelation and with the Holy Ghost. I testify of the truthiness of The Book of Mormon, and that this Book really answers the questions of the soul; that it guides us and comforts us from whatever we are going through in our lives. I know there is a way to go back to God´s presence and we can do it being purified by being baptized and receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. I testify of this to be true in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I love helping everyone around me. I was in charge of taking care of the little kids at church, and it is wonderful how much love and pureness there is in children. They love hearing about Jesus Christ and His love for us. I loved teaching and guiding them to understand the principles of the Church.

What is faith?

Faith is trusting in God that something is true even though we do not have a perfect knowledge of it. Show more Show less
