Hi I'm Abel

I grew up in New Jersey. I like sports, and motorcycles, and i am a Mormon

About Me

I use to work as a temp for a company called "Sungard". Where i was a Cable Runner for them. I grew up playing Baseball And Basketball. If you were to ask me if i like playing sports or watching them better. I'd have to say playing for sure.I love to have a good time, and to laugh. I like hanging out with my friends and go to the movies and do the regular fun stuff that most people like to do. But most of all i love being around my family! I hangout with my Dad a lot and and have had the great opertunity to be his assistant scoutmaster for about two years. I never made Eagle, but thats alright. But right now my main interest is in serving a two year mission for the lord in Everett Washington. I love to go out and share Gods love with others and help them to feel it in their lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the gospel, and had good experiences growing up in it. I was blessed with a wonderful family and parents who knew and had a witness from God that we were in his church. But i had not recieved that witness myself, and as a teen i was going through some tough times and had to find out for myself if what my parents had been teaching me was right. So i started to read the Book of Mormon daily and pray for guidence from God. And as I made the effort to do this I was able to see my life change for the better. I was happier and had the spirit of God confirm my feelings for the gospel. Through my knowledge of Jesus Christ and what he did for me i was able to make the neccesary changes in my life to bring it into alignment with Gods will. And I want other people to Know what i know and feel as i feel. That God loves us and because of that love he has restored his church, so that we can have a full measure of his blessing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by giving service. The happiest times of my life have been when I have been serving others. When you serve others you put their needs before your own, and see real, and lasting results. When i was serving as a assistant scoutmaster I was serving the young men in our troop. I was able to be there for them when they needed help. And just give them life skills. Likewise when i am on my mission for the Lord. I spend all my time helping others. Instead of giving wildlife skills (like fire building) I am helping people lear how to pray to God. And learn more about him! Helping them learn that the fulness of his gospel has been restore through a prophet named Joseph Smith. And that they can know that this is true by reading from the Book of Mormon, and Praying and asking God.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Study and prayer. is the short answer. Read from the Book of Mormon, and ponder the teachings in it. Pray before and after you read, and ask God if it is from him. He will answer your prayers through his Holy Ghost which testifies of Christ and truth. It is not rocket science. But it does take effort. And God answers prayers. This i know for sure. He has answered mine. Show more Show less
