Chat With a Mormon Online
Hi, I'm Jennifer. I really like missionary work because I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet and the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Many people have told me so, but I received my answer from sincere prayer. I needed to know for myself if the book was His revelation. I asked Heavenly Father and He showed me that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The end is drawing near, so I have a duty to share the sacred text with people. I enjoy meeting strangers because the Lord orchestrates them into my life on a daily basis. There are so many strangers who I have been able to meet and we shared the word of God with each other. I stand firm in my beliefs and values because I stand firm in the belief of prophecy and personal revelations. I have been a member for 6 years and it has been the best years of my life. God walks with His children and a personal relationship with God combined with fellowship with the saints in the the Lord's kingdom is a potent defense against the destroyer.
Actually I am a Latter-day Saint. I believe the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. The label is given to members of our faith as nick-name, but the correct term is Latter-day Saint. My father owned a restaurant & I met many different people there who invited me to church. I met the missionaries there too. Actually, an entire district of missionaries came to my dad's restaurant. The rest of the story is history. I knew those young men were honest in sharing God's message. I was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ by the proper authority. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God & testifies of Jesus Christ. I know those things because of the Holy spirit that I felt before baptism & that was conferred upon me as a gift afterward. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet. Why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because I know, believe & abide by the precepts found in the Book of Mormon.
I have a testimony that Joseph Smith was and is a Prophet of the Lord Jesus Christ. I journeyed to Carthage, Illinois, to visit the jail and room where Joseph Smith met his fate. I saw the bullet hole in the door and the window that he jumped out of to escape the angry mob. I believe only the power of God could have revealed to me that Joseph sealed his testimony with his blood. I bear witness of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I was converted from the introductory page. I know Christ sustains Joseph Smith as a prophet and the Book of Mormon is the word of God.
I live my faith by praying and studying the scriptures. I live my faith by attending the temple and remaining worthy for a temple recommend. I have done all that is necessary to trace my lineage and do my ancestor's work. I ask Heavenly Father to make me better. I try to surrender my will and heart to Him. It's not easy, but I have learned to live the faith by listening to the prophets and never giving up.
