Growing up in the heart of the Guatemalan Civil War of 1960-1996, Amanda Barrios McPeek wasn’t accepted by her own family or the people in her town of Parramos, because of the way she looked. When she came across the missionaries in Antigua, and read the Book of Mormon for the first time, she not only learned that God accepted her and loved her, but that she was his daughter.

Amanda first read the Book of Mormon in November of 1996, and was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on January 5, 1997    2 Nephi 26:33
