Hi I'm Thomas Woods

I'm from South Carolina. I play football and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 20 year old guy from South Carolina. Right now I'm a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Quebec, Canada. I have been a missionary since July 2010. I really enjoy the chance that I have to share to joy of the gospel with people everyday of my life for 2 years and then even after. I'm from South Carolina so of course I like muddin', fishin', huntin', and football. I've been a fisher for most of my life and have always loved the outdoors. I was the captian of my high school football team in SC and I played as the center on the o-line. I really like working on cars and making them really fast. I love poutine.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been in the church my whole life and I've been active my whole life. On may ocassions I went to my knees to find out if it was true or not. But when my testimony got really strong was while I was in high school. I saw everyone doin' all these thing that looked really fun to do and really cool but they didn't really go along with the teachings of the church. I really thought 'bout all of the things that I had seen and learned at church and I know that it was super important that Joseph Smith was a prophet and I knew that the way to know for sure it he was a prophet was throught reading and praying to see if the Book of Mormon was true. Because all of it lies on each other. So I did just that I read in the Book of Mormon and then I prayed to know if it was true and 'bout a week later when I prayed with real intent I got my answer that is was true.

How I live my faith

I am actually a missionary for the church right now so I'm giving two years of my life to the lord. I go out everyday all day talking to people and teaching people 'bout the gospel of Jesus Christ.
