Why I am a Mormon

I am convert to the church since1974. There is some uniqueness about my conversion. The missionaries did not come to my door I went to them. One day coming back from the street market I approached two young man that had some distinctness. They were wearing white shirts and dark pants. I asked them if they knew anything about Mormons. Their answered "we are Mormons". I invited them to come to my house that night when the whole family would be home. I wanted to know what their religion was about. I did not know much about Mormons, however, I had a neighbor who was a Mormon. She and her family were different from the rest of the people around us such us every Sunday I saw them leaving their home dressed as they were going to a very special gathering. I did not know at that time they were going to church. They were very kind, always helping the neighbors, soft spoken, and their house always looked nice. What I learned later is that there was no drinking in their home. This got my attention I did not want to raise my children embracing some of the traditions in my country. Drinking is part of every celebration occurrence. I do believe from the bottom of my heart with out the missionaries my life would not be what it is now. Having the gospel gave me the strength to overcome the challenges and sorrows that I have experience throughout my life. Recently I lost my son. My religion gives me the assurance that my Father in Heaven loves me and forgives my trespasses daily. He answers my prayers and gives me the comfort that one day I will be reunited with my beloved son.  I do owe my happiness and my knowledge of the truth gospel to the two young missionaries that changed my life for the good.     

How I live my faith

 Throughout my life as a Mormon I served in different callings. I worked with children, young women, and with the ladies learning how to become a better mother a better homemaker a better neighbor. One of the most rewarding callings is being a visiting teacher. This gives me the change to visit the women in my area to learn their needs, their concerns, to get closer to each other on the teachings of the gospel. Gives me also the opportunity to serve, by serving others we do gained many blessing in our daily lives.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

 I do know for sure that one day we will be reunited with all of those that went before us. This knowledge gives me the strength to go on, to live my daily life. With out any doubt I know that I will be with my son again who passed away just recently. I do have a testimony that life does not end here on earth and Families Can Be Together For Ever.  Show more Show less
