Hi I'm Daniel

I was born and raised in the Big Easy, New Orleans, Louisiana. I am a BYU student. I'm obsessed with ice cream and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the youngest of two. My parents were both born and raised in Honduras before moving and meeting in the United States. I am bilingual (Spanish and English). Sports are basically my life, in particular baseball. I love to eat and try new things. Christmas is my favorite holiday and Christmas music is the best. I was a missionary in the best mission in the world, Uruguay Montevideo West.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know without a doubt this is the true church. As I read the Book of Mormon every morning and ponder it´s teachings and apply them to my day, I see the marvelous blessings it brings to my life. I was very fortunate to be able to be born in the church (meaning my parents were active in the church when I was born), but I still needed to receive my own answer if this truly is the true church of God on the earth. Sure enough, as I strived to live the gospel principles and seek that answer from the Lord, with much prayer it was confirmed to me that this is Christ´s church he once established on this earth in its entirety. I didn´t have a vision or I didn´t see anything out of the ordinary happen, but with the feelings I felt in my heart of peace and comfort, the Lord revealed to me that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church the way he says he will in the Book of Mormon, through his prophet Nefi, ¨Line upon line, precept upon precept¨.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to live the way Jesus did when he was on the earth, as it is described in the New Testament in the Bible. Obviously no one´s perfect, and no one will ever be able to say they are like he was, but I´m trying my best to do everything I can to be like him and I know I will be greatly blessed in my everyday life if I continue to do so. I am currently serving a full-time mission in Uruguay and trying to bring others to accept this wonderful gospel in their lives.
