Hi I'm Brice Reeves

I am a returned missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I have devoted my time to helping others.

About Me

I'm serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I come from a middle sized Mormon family. I love the teachings of the Gospel and I love sharing the teachings with those I become aquainted with. I have and will be attending University, studying Bio- Chemistry and Pharmacy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because I was born into the church, but because in my teenage years I had many questions to deal with the purpose of life and if there was anything after. I found through the church answers to these questions and more. The greatest witness came from God after reading the Book of Mormon and then praying to know if it was true.

How I live my faith

I recently returned from serving a two-year mission for the Lord in the England Leeds Mission. I went around everyday offering to help those I see and also offering them answers to the questions that I had as a teenager. I now am taking what I learned from my mission and am using it to teach others how to share the gospel and gain other skills. I also teach gospel lessons regularly and attend institute, an LDS religious education system. Also attending church every day and helping anyone that I see that needs help.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Brice Reeves
When we give our tithing to the Church it then goes to pay for the General Operations of the Church, not to pay its leaders or members. It helps fund the activities that the members are involved in and provides for the buildings(chapels and temples etc.) and their materials used in church(lesson manuels, pictures for object lessons etc.). The money is also used to help with family history work around the world as this is such an important task for members of the Church and also helps with the Missionary work(not for individual missionary expenses, but for things like travel, Book of Mormons, pamphlets etc.) I know that when I pay my tithing that every cent is used to help the work of God move forward, and that none of it is used in a greedy or jealous way.
