Hi I'm Kevin Stapleton

I grew up in Mission Viejo California. I am currently serving a mission in the Florida Tampa mission, and I´m a Mormon

About Me

I am a native American who grew up in orange county california, I have lived with my parents and my three brothers. I currently am serving in the Florida Tampa Mission speaking spanish. I have grown up in the church and have had the examples of two awesome brothers and a father who have all served missions and I get to be an example for my little brother.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my savior Jesus Christ plain and simple, and with this knowledge of my savior I have seen the blessings that have come from his love. I have received a witness from the holy ghost that this church is true and I know without a doubt that this is the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving a mission and preaching the gospel!!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Kevin Stapleton
No, Mormons are not required to serve a mission for the church but it is a great privilege that we have as members of Christ's church to represent him and his church by preaching his gospel. A mission is highly encouraged in the church and is something that is so very special and important that the church urges all young men or women, who are worthy, to serve the lord and invite others to come unto Christ. To me the ability to serve is a gift that our Heavenly Father has given us. In all reality the lord doesn't need nineteen to twenty seven year old young men and women to go out and preach the gospel, but the lord has given us this time be a tool in his hands to bring others unto the Savior Jesus Christ, and in the process to spiritually mature and become stronger disciples of Jesus Christ.
