Hi I'm Gentry

I am a Canadian Mormon!

About Me

Currently I am serving for two years in the Virginia Richmond Mission. Im from Southern Alberta, Canada. I am number 5 of 7 children in my family. My family means everything to me. I love being active and I love the outdoors. I love to play all kinds of sports. My favorite things to do are wake boarding, snow boarding, soccer, volleyball, basketball, badminton, and I like to play video games. After serving my mission I am planning on going to school and starting a family.  

Why I am a Mormon

 I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but that is not why I am Mormon. I get asked all the time if I am a convert to the church. Even though I grew up in the church I still consider myself as a convert. I had to learn and develope my own testimony in the Book of Mormon, the prophet Joseph Smith and all the other principles taught just like everyone else in the church. I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus is the Christ. I know that He appeared to Joseph Smith to restore the priesthood of God and to restore all the other truths that were lost. I have gained this knowledge as I have read the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is proof that Joseph Smith was visited by God the Father and His son Jesus Christ. I have received my own witness from the Holy Spirit that these things are true and no one can take that away from me. Now that I have recieved this divine witness I cannot deny it and I want to stay as close as possible to the truths so that the blessings of heaven may come down upon me.

How I live my faith

 Previously to my calling to serve a mission in Virginia I was a primary teacher. I taught 6 and 7 year old boys and girls. I learned a lot from them. It helped me to focus on the basic principles of the gospel. I was also a home teacher. A home teacher is someone who visits other members of the church to share spiritual messages with and to render service to those that need it. Its a good way to help others stay on the right path as well as yourself. We are all in this together. Now I am serving in the Virginia Richmond Mission preaching the restored gospel to all those who will listen.
