Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Adam

I love to do math and to cook, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying math. Besides math and spending time with my wife, I like to watch TV and I love to cook.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been part of the Mormon church for a long time. My parents, grandparents, and even all of my great-grandparents are/were members of the Mormon church. Growing up we just always went to church, and so I went. But I had questions and wasn't sure if I thought the church was true. So I prayed and asked God, and while I didn't see angels or anything spectacular, I felt in my heart that it really is God's church, and that I was doing the right thing. I served a mission for my church and every day felt more and more like it was the right thing.

How I live my faith

I enjoy attending my church meetings every Sunday. At church I am in charge of making sure the teachers and other people have the materials they need to be able to teach their lessons, like chalk and eraser or paper.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Adam
When I see a good movie or something, I want to share it with my friends. That's what it's like being a missionary. We believe that we have something amazing, and want to share it with other people. If someone isn't interested we understand, but are disappointed because we know the happiness it has brought us, and honestly we just want other people to receive the same blessings we've received.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Adam
I was a missionary for 2 years, and before I left, I worked and saved my money to pay for all of the clothes, etc. that I would need, and for half of the monthly cost, to pay for housing, food, transportation, etc. My parents paid the other half. For those who want to go on missions but don't have enough money, the church will help them after determining how much the future missionary and his/her family can provide. It is expected that the missionary and his/her family will pay as much as possible, and if needed, the church will help. The pamphlets and other materials the missionaries give away are paid for by tithing and other funds donated to the church. Show more Show less
