Chat With a Mormon Online
I am 21 years old. I am serving in Trollhättan, Sweden. I have been serving my mission now for the past 23 months. I love it here. There are wonderful people and I am glad I serve among them. I am fluent in swedish. I love to play volleyball and tennis, but I will play any sport, they are all fun. I have 7 people in my family consisting of my parents, three brothers, and lastly a wonderful little sister. I will be finishing my mission in 3 weeks and am looking forward to reuniting with my family!
I was born into a family that believed in this church. So naturally I believed in it too at that point. There came a period of time when I really questioned myself on what I believed, so I took the Book of Mormon and read it. It was actually a challenge that our church gave to us, was to read the Book of Mormon. I took that challenge to heart and really wanted to find out its truth. I started reading, praying to God for understanding every time before I read. I didn't get my answer right away, but I kept on reading. The point where I really got my answer was when Jesus Christ visited these people. I liked when the Jesus said when he appeared at the temple of the Nephites, he said, "Behold, I am Jesus Christ, whom the prophets testified shall come into the world." (3 Nephi 11:10) When I read this I new that the book was true and I knew that God loved me enough to send his son to die for me and everyone who had ever lived. I continued reading and I came to the end of the book. Just before the end of the book Moroni says and promises us, "And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ. if these things are not true;and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the holy ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." This is what I did and my answer was, "You already know it's true. That is why I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
I am serving a mission for my church now, in Sweden. I attend church every Sunday and I try to live my life in harmony with the church standards and teachings. Right now I am currently serving as a missionary in the church. I try to live my live the way Christ would live His life. I am not perfect like Christ, but try to become like He was.
