Hi I'm Larry

About Me

Hi there, I'm a convert to the church and right now my wife and I are serving a senior mission in the Florida. We have been at this for all of one week so we are still learning what to do. I do a lot of family history on the internet thru Family Search and Update on mission. We have two months left. We had a couple of conversion and some inactive members returned to chuch. Have met some great people and love them. Some are planning to come to Oregon. That will be great.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Morman because it makes me feel good inside and it is the only true church of our Heavenly Father. I know this church is true and that Jesus died for us and was resurrected so that we will be able to live with him. I know that the Book of Morman is another book of God, the same as the Bible. I know that God called Joseph Smith to be a prophet in this dispensation and that Thomas S. Monson is now the only living prophet in this day.

Personal Stories

Why/How do you share the gospel with your friends?

I share the gospel with my friends by the way that I live. I use my life as an example of what they should be like. But I'm not perfect and I make mistakes. The best thing to remember is that Jesus Christ is our example and we should try to be like him in all things.

Why do Mormons go on missions?

My wife and I are currently on a mission in Florida. We came on this because we wanted to serve other people. We didn't chose what we would be doing but told them we would do whatever the Lord wanted us to do and wherever he wanted us to go.

Why do Mormons do family history or genealogy work?

Because once you get started and find Grandpa's and Grandma's and cousins you didn't know you had you become amazed at how big your family really is. You will find people in the next town that are related to you that you didn't know were there and you'll want to meet them.

How I live my faith

Right now I am on a Mission, with my wife, in the Florida. We are here to serve the members of the church and anyone else that we can.
