Hi I'm Tim

Hi, I'm from France. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm 22 and the 7th of a family of 8. I love spending time with my family and friends. They are the most important thing for me. I'm sportsman, I love playing soccer which I play since I was 8 years old. It's my favorite sports with beach volley-ball as well. In addition to that I like playing video games a lot. I'm currently serving in the Oregon Portland mission preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people over there. I love being a missionary and representing Christ every day. It's been a miracle to me to preach what I know to be true and what brings peace of mind and joy into my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon all my life. There was a time where I was not an active member in the church. When I was 15, Soccer games were on Sundays and I'd decided to play those games instead of going to church. It saddened my parents a lot but they respected my decision and let me do what I'd chosen while loving me. It lasted almost 3 years when at one game I hurt my knee. I could not play a whole season of soccer anymore because of my injured knee. It was really hard for me to accept. However because I could no longer play the games on Sundays I started coming back to church. I found that going to church and be surrounded by friends who were supporting me with great principles was blessing my life. I decided to find out for myself whether or not what my parents taught me and the restored Gospel of Christ were true. I did a thorough study of the book Mormon praying and asking to Heavenly Father every time I would open the book if it was true. I started to feel a change in myself. The words of Christ in the book of Mormon were starting to change the desires of my heart and making me more like our Savior Jesus Christ. By the power of Holy Ghost, I've gained a testimony of the divinity and reality of Jesus Christ as our Redeemer. I know the book of Mormon and the Bible to be the word of God. I know God and Jesus Christ have called prophets in these latter days. I know God called Joseph Smith to be a prophet who brought back the Gospel in its purity and fullness.

How I live my faith

I'm a missionary in Oregon. I've been called by a prophet to be a disciple of Christ there. I carry his name everyday, wherever I go and do my best to be an example in all things and by keeping his commandments. I strive to always represent him and do as he would do if he were beside me. I try my hardest to act on what I preach and the advice I give to others.
