Chat With a Mormon Online
Hey! I've got 4 years of college under my belt and am a Paramedic. I will be continuing my education so that I can advance in the medical field. I love to play sports, be out doors, watch movies and cook. Today I am a full time missionary sharing the gospel with as many people as I can.
I had grown up surrounded by the church most of my life. My mother joined the Church when she was 34 and shortly after we moved to Boston, MA. While there my mother would take my brother and I to church with her. Because of this we were surrounded by wonderful friends and examples that encouraged us and supported us. At this time I was only 14 yrs old, but I recognized that these friends had something that I didn't and that made me jealous. I didn't know what it was, but I wanted it. I quickly began to realize that what they had was the Church, The Gospel and Jesus Christ in their lives. But not only that, they were apart of the chruch, living the example that Christ had set for us. Being 14 I understood enough to know that I just had to be apart of it too. Thanks to my wonderful parents I was supported in my decsion to be baptized and have loved every minute of it since.
Prayer is our communication with our Heavenly Father! He wants to know what is going on in our lives just as our parents here on earth do. Prayer has been a time for me to get closer to my Father in Heaven and come to an understanding of His will for me. When growing up my family and I would kneel down next to my parents bed and say a family prayer together. Since we have been doing this every night before going to bed we have become closer as a family and enjoy the blessings God has promised our family.
The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a comfort in the fact that I have direction in my life. That I have a purpose. Every day when I get up in the morning I know that I will be given the direction I need to fulfill that purpose and to help others understand that they have a purpose too. I do not need to wonder what it is I am working for or what's going to happen to me in the end, because I already know. God loves me and one day I will be able to return to Him and be happy with my family for eternity. There is no question in my mind that I have a purpose. There is no question in my mind that this Church is true.
Today I am serving a full time mission in the Florida, Ft. Lauderdale Mission. The greatest mission in all the land! One of the best oppertunities the Church has to offer is to serve a mission. Being given the privledge to share the Gospel is an amazing experinece where you get to meet the most amazing people. You learn and grow and here you create a pathway to the rest of your life.
