Chat With a Mormon Online
I was born in St. Cloud, MN on December 17, 1992. My family moved to Las Vegas, NV in 1995. We lived there for 12 years. I had many great friends, some members of this church and most not, but all of them were great people. In my last year of middle school, after my older sister had graduated high school, my parents had decided that it was time for a change. They felt it necessary to move from Las Vegas to Southern Utah. I don't know why I wasn't very opposed to the idea, but I just let it happen. I trusted my parents. They obviously knew what wasn't only best for them, but also for me. At first I felt like I didn't really have friends because I was the "new kid'' but I just kept trucking along. About half way through my Junior year in high school I was befriended by an awesome group of guys. Three of which are on missions right now. I'm the fourth one out and the fifth should be putting his papers in really soon. Trusting my parents to do what was right for the family has blessed me with amazing friends and a testimony that this Church is true.
Lillie Whittemore, my grandmother, was only about 24 years-old when she heard about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She met with the missionaries overtime and later was baptized into the church. She later met Marty Brady, my grandfather, at Mel's Skate Land. He was an employee there. They were later married and Marty was also baptized. They had three daughters, Melody (my mother named after where they met), Tammy, and Laura. My mom met Peter Barrie, in high school in a small town south of Mille Lacs Lake called Onamia. They married each other soon out of high school. My father was converted and baptized into the church about a year before I was born. They've had three children; two daughters and one son. I am ''luckily'' put in the middle of the two daughters. My Grandmother has brought 10 souls unto the Gospel of Christ because she believed the missionaries at age 24. I am the first person to be serving a mission from my family since I am the oldest grandson. I'm very grateful to my family and the amazing examples they've been to me and the things I've learned from them. Not only am I a Mormon because I was born into it, but because I love this Church and the Gospel.
I'm living my faith by being obedient to the prohets of this Church whereas ''Every worthy young man a missionary''. I'm being a ''pioneer'' to my family by being the first person to serve a full time mission and am excited to invite people of Argentina to come unto Christ.
