Chat With a Mormon Online
I am currently serving an mission for the church in Danmark. I love it. (I'll be the first bi-lingual member of my family) I'm the yougest of my family. I earned my Eagle Scout Award. I plan on attending college at BYU after my mission. I hope to go into medical school afterwards. I first wanted to play drums in 7th grade. So, I practiced at school and finally got my own drum-set. Now, I can play quite well because of steady and patient practice. I also like to plunk away at the piano. I've learned how to play a few church hymns from the church hymnbook, and I'm grateful for this talent. I like to roadbike. I'm not a racer but I enjoy cruising 15-50miles every once in a while.
My family was mormon when I was born; so, I went to church with them. I was baptized at 8 years old, and I have a testimony of the church. I enjoy the Gospel because it brings me comfort when I feel lonely, sad, or just down. Prayer is one of the biggest blessings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. When I pray with faith and real intent, the Lord answers my prayers. The Heavenly Father comforts me through the Holy Ghost when I need it. I know that God knows everything-- including everything about me. He knows my struggles, my pains, my weaknesses, my strenghts, my sins, my actions, my favorite colors, He even knows my name. I feel totally comfortable in this life when I reflect on His great knowledge and care. The best thing is, is that he knows everthing about everyone! I can't fathom how, but He does. I like to think about how much of a blessing it is to be a priesthood bearer. Through the holy priesthood, I can literally and figuratively bless the lives of others. This only comes through divine allowance from Heaveny Father. I'm so grateful for the priesthood. I'm grateful for priesthood holders that have either counseled me in their callings or otherwise because with the support of the priesthood and the support of Hevanly Father I can do hard things. I know that all mankind is the children of God.
Many times, at General Conference, Stake Conference, church services, reading the scriptures, or while pondering I've felt the Holy Ghost, and I've received an answer to something I was concerned with. I love how the Lord works! He loves me. Somethimes, people just say the thing I needed to say. Sometimes, it's my best friend who says something that's perfect for me or sometimes it comes from something I thought of because of the Holy Ghost. Either way it came, the Lord answers the prayers of His own children.
I've been serving a mission for a while now. I serve not to force people to be mormon, but to help people understand the importance of the Gospel and it's covenant of baptism. I talk to people on the street or in visit them in their homes not to cause quarrels but to sincerely help them understand God's love and His restored church. Not everyone wants to listen to us missionaries, but that's okay. I hope someday everyone will want see what the Fullness of the Gospel has to offer.
I am serving a full-time 24 month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that the Gospel blesses lives, families, and relationships. I want to let others know about what the Gospel can do for us, God's children. Before my mission, I tried to serve my best as a hometeacher. It was fun to see how going to out neighbors' homes, helping them, and talking about the Gospel can help lift their burdens and help their lives and our lives become more enjoyable. Giving talks in church strenghtens my testimony and can help strengthen others' testimonies as well.
