Hi I'm Cameron

I'm a Mormon Missionary

About Me

I'm 20 years old and currently serving a mission in Portugal, Lisbon. I am the youngest of 6 kids. I have 4 sisters and 1 brother. And I have two loving parents. I've lived in Utah all my life. I used to hit the slopes every winter on my snowboard, and every summer on my bike. But now, I'm serving the people of Portugal by sharing the restored gospel. I return home mid 2012 and plan on attending Brigham Young University, going into Composit Engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel is true. That is why I'm a Mormon. It gives me the knowledge and understanding of why I am here on Earth, and what I must do here. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. And that through him I can become clean and return to God, our Heavenly Father. I am constantly comforted to know that I can be with my family forever. Not just here on Earth, but also after I die. I love this church with all my heart, and that's why I'm constantly inviting others to know what I know.

How I live my faith

I'm currently living my faith by serving a mission. Where I have the wonderful oppurtunity to go and preach the restored gospel. Some moments it's a struggle, but most the time I find happiness beyond anything I've ever known. The loving people of Portugal are so kind and caring. This is where God's Children are and I feel so blessed for the chance to live, love, and learn with them.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is God's power on Earth, and the Authority to act in his name. I have the blessing and responsability of holding this priesthood and use it regularly in my life. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

We believe that after we die, our spirits (or souls) leave our physical body and go to one of two places. Spirit Paradise, or Spirit Prison. Depending on the choices we've made in this life. After death people can move from Spirit Prison to Spirit Paradise. Later, we'll all be what's called ressurected. Which is when our spirit is reunited with our physical bodies, and we are made perfect. When then are judged and put into one of three kingdoms. First and greatest being the Celestial, next being the Terestrial, and the lowest being the Telestial. Show more Show less
