About Me

 Im a missionary in the California Fresno mission. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Both of my parents are active members. Growing up I attended church each Sunday, had family scripture study, and attended seminary (a scripture study course) while I was in high school. I was baptized when I was 8 years old. I was baptized because I had been taught that was how I could return to live with God. As I have gotten older and had the opportunity to serve as a LDS missionary I have grown in my testimony of Jesus Christ and come to recognize the wonderful truths that are found within the Mormon church. Scriptural evidence points towards a falling away from the church or gospel that Jesus Christ set up. Its evident through scripture that the priesthood, or the authority to act in the name of God for the benifit of his children, was lost. A restoration was needed. Plain and simple gospel truths and doctrine needed to be brought back. And they were. The Book of Mormon is the hard evidence of this. Read it. Aside from scriptural evidence and much more important is the Spirit. The Spirit and the Holy Ghost have testified to me through feelings of peace and comfort that the Mormon church teaches everything that is needful to return to live with God and to have happiness in this life and the life beyond. I have been able to see peoples life changed as a result of following Jesus Christ. If you want to be happy you need to study it out and then be baptized so you can accept the Atonement, or Christ's sacrifice.

How I live my faith

I currently am a missionary serving in the California Fresno Mission. I have learned Spanish so I can communicate the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. I help people increase their faith in Jesus Christ through action. I teach what they need to do to see changes in their lives and in their families. I share my feelings about how following Christ has changed my life. I invite others to come unto Christ by helping them recieve the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, repentence, baptism, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Corey
Mormon missionaries save money up to be able to go on a mission. They are not paid by the church. They pay $400 a month to serve a mission and that covers their housing expenses and food. Its alot of sacrifice from missionaries and their families to serve. They do it because they know it will bring others happiness. Show more Show less
