Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a normal guy who loves to play around with technology. I have always been interested in computers and everything that deals with them. My dad and my brother started to show me how to use a computer when I was about 6 or 7 years old, and from there I have learned tons. Even now my brother and I enjoy working together to learn more about technology. I love to watch tv and hang out with my friends. I love life and am very happy.
I was raised in the church, but that doesn't mean that I didn't have to find out that it was true for myself. I have had to search it out and pray about it, and I have received my answer from our Heavenly Father. I remember the first time that I felt for sure that it was true. I was on an overnight camping trip with the young men of our ward, and we decided that we wanted to read some scriptures. We started to read them, and talk about what they meant. I was only about 14 at the time, but I felt an overwhelming feeling of excitement, and I really wanted to know if the things I was learning about the Book of Mormon were true. Up until that point, I hadn't really ever prayed specifically about it, but I knew that I needed to. So I that night I prayed, wanting to know if all the things I had learned that night were true, and whether the Book of Mormon was the word of God. I got my answer, I felt so much peace and comfort, and an overwhelming feeling of YES!!! IT IS TRUE!!! I know that I felt the Holy Ghost testifying to me that it is true. Because of experiences like this one, I know that this church is true. I am a Mormon not because my parents were, but because I have read the Book of Mormon, and prayed to know if this church was His church. It means everything to me to know that I am a part of the Saviors church restored to the earth again today.
Serving a mission is a personal choice. I chose to go on my mission because I wanted other people to experience the same joy that I have. I wanted them to have the truth. Its hard to leave family and friends for 2 years, but it is worth it, to try and help other people to know the truth for themselves.
Currently I am serving a mission for the Church. I am serving in the Tallahassee Florida Mission. Missionaries go out for 2 years, and help teach people about the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a missionary I have had opportunities to help other people understand and learn the truth for themselves. I love to get out and serve other people. As a member of the church we are strongly encouraged to offer service to others. There are people all around us who can use our help. I am greatful that I get to use the talents that I have to help other people.
