Hi I'm Victor

I enjoy creating music, playing sports, and learning in general, and I am a convert to the church.

About Me

Hello my name is Victor. I like playing basketball, listening/creating music, and whatever else is good wholesome fun. I am currently working and saving money to get on my mission to share the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I converted to the church when I was 15, I was active in another christian church at the time but it felt as if there was something missing. My step mom was a member but she was inactive at the time. Then one day my parents had the missionaries over I decided to join them and as soon as they started talking I knew I had found what I was missing. The order and simplicity of the laws and ordinances of the church could only have come from God. The church was setup exactly as Christ set it up while he was on the earth. As I listened to the lesson they were giving my heart was filled with peace and joy and I knew that what I was hearing was good and true. After a couple of lessons I started to read the Book of Mormon and it assured me that I had found the church that filled the hole and I decided to join the church. I am now 20 and striving to go serve a mission. The gospel changed me and when I am following in Christs footsteps there is no greater peace.

How I live my faith

I love going to church to learn and grow. Whenever I share my beliefs with others it makes me feel happy knowing that that person could become interested in the church and someday become a member. To be able to feel the love that members give everyone (members and non members alike). To be able to feel the pure happiness and overwhelming peace that the gospel brings. As I said before I am preparing for my mission and hope I will be able to share something that will help change lives for the better.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Victor
The Book of Mormon is kinda like the bible except the Book of Mormon was written by prophets on the american continent. A lot of times people confuse Joseph Smith as the writer but he was the one who,through the power of God, translated the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less

Why do you have 12 Apostles? They were just meant to be around for the time of Jesus Christ, not to be replaced with new apostles.

Victor
To put it simply Jesus Christ is the perfect example of who we should strive to be. When he called those apostles intituted the sacrament and the many other things he was organizing His church and setting an example of how it should be run. Show more Show less

What is the First Vision?

Victor
The First Vision is the wonderful event where the prophet Joseph Smith knelt down in prayer in the woods and asked God what church to join and he unexpectedly was given a direct answer. God the Father and Jesus Christ came down and visited Joseph Smith face to face and told him to join none of them and that is what started the restoration of the gospel. Show more Show less
