Hi I'm Elizabeth Smith

I am a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

About Me

I am currently an intern for IBM, and a student at BYU-I majoring in biotechnology. Some of my hobbies include learning new things, traveling all over the world ( four countries down so far ), going outdoors to experience nature in its simplest form, and taking chances. I am currently a pre-missionary. I will be serving in San Fransisco/ Oakland, California, and I could not be any more excited than I am right now.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love this church, I recognize the love that is present within the ward and in my own home. Without the gospel of Jesus Christ, I don't know where I would be in life. I've been able to share the love from my Heavenly Father with the people around me and its been such a blessing. As a missionary of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I am able to help those around me witness the love of our Heavenly Father and be able to see the Saviors saving Atonement in their own lives. I love this church and I love my Father and Jesus Christ. I hope to be able to serve those around me with the love of Christ and bring them closer to my Father in Heaven because I know how much he loves them and I want them to notice their own salvation.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am a missionary for the LDS church and I'm serving in the Oakland/San Francisco, CA. Previously, I served as a four year old primary teacher on Sundays for my current ward. I had the chance to teach these wonderful children and now I get to impact those I serve around me now. It's such a blessing to be able to wear the badge symbolizing my mission to the Lord and to bring others unto Christ representing Him. I want them to realize how much God loves them and wants to see them return to Him again. In any situation I am in, I hope to be able to share my own knowledge and experiences with others so that they may benefit from what I have to say and hopefully that will strengthen them to make a positive impact on their own lives.
