Hi I'm Stephen

I am a missionary in the Denmark Copenhagen Mission, I love sports, I love my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary in the Denmark Copenhagen Mission. I put my college education on hold for two years to serve and love the people of Denmark.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I believe the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I believe these teachings because I have felt the power of the holy ghost in my life, as well as those around me. Having graduated from high school, I have seen how the different choices that people make have affected their lives. I'm grateful for a gospel that allows me to stay close to my loving Heavenly Father

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what God asks of me. I fulfill this by serving a mission, where I have the opportunity to share the gospel. Before my mission I had an amazing experience with sharing the gospel. In April of 2012 I had the opportunity to baptize a good friend of mine. It was an awesome experience to see how the gospel had affected his life.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Stephen
Our major source of revenue is the ancient law of the tithe. Our people are expected to pay 10 percent of their income to move forward the work of the Church. The remarkable and wonderful thing is that they do it. Tithing is not so much a matter of dollars as it is a matter of faith. It becomes a privilege and an opportunity, not a burden. None of the Tithing that Mormons pay goes to pay clergy. All of the tithing goes to: ■Constructing temples, chapels, and other buildings. ■Providing operating funds for the Church. ■Funding the missionary program (This does not include individual missionary expenses.) ■Preparing materials used in Church classes and organizations. ■Temple work, family history, and many other important Church function. ■Education We are blessed when we pay tithing. Malachi 3:10 says that if you pay an honest tithe, then you will be blessed where "...There wil not be room enough to recieve it" Show more Show less
