Hi I'm Preston Speakman

I´m from Kansas, but I´m living in Chile, and I am a faithful Mormón.

About Me

Right now I am living in Chile as a missionary for the church. I am coming home in November 2011 and then will pick school back up. I went to college for a year before the coming to Chile. I ran Cross Country and Track, I´m an Ult. Frisbee fan, and I´m a social guy.

Why I am a Mormon

I like it when things are complete and when I can understand how something works or how it should be. For me being the way I am, I would say that there are two reasons why I am a member of the church. One Because I have experimented by reading the Book of Mormon and with prayer. I recieved a personal confirmation from God and therefore cannot deny it and know that it is how it should be. Two Because if you study the Bible you can find that there are many necessary things that the true religion or church of God needs, and the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has everything in every aspect. It is complete.

How I live my faith

Like most youth I attended the church activities as often as I could when I was younger and I took care of the youngest kids in church so that their parents could participate in classes. I was the President of a scripture study class called "Institute" before I decided to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am dedicating two years of my life to helping other people come unto Christ.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Preston Speakman
They are spiritually uplifting. It is a reverent atmosphere and all visitors are welcome, and that includes you. The best way to know what they are like would be to go for yourself and see. One of the nice things is that there are always missionaries that would be more than willing to explain what is going on. So I would just walk in and ask somebody to introduce me to the missionaries if I were you. Enjoy! Show more Show less
