Hi I'm Donald

I'm a new convert to the church. I was raised in the Presbyterian Church. But now I'm happy to say I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a driver by trade, over the road and locally. I'm retired now, but I still love to drive anywhere and everywhere. If I had the means I would travel by car all over the country. I love nature and scenic photography. When I travel I stop whenever I see something that I can imagine framed on my wall. I have been a foster parent and adopted 2 of the children I fostered. I am not currently fostering anymore.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Presbyterian Church. Since becoming an adult, I have attended the Assembly of God, Baptist, Lutheran, and Methodist churches. They were all good churches filled with wonderful people.There was just something missing. I didn't know what it was. I guess it was that they were all preaching about God. But, they were all saying different things about Him and disagreeing with one another about it. It was all just a big fight. I finally screamed out to heaven, "I'm not attending another church, Lord, until you show me which one to attend." Just a couple of months later I met with a person who I knew was a Mormon. She told me it was the one true church. I thought to myself, "Where have I heard that before?" But after she told me more, she told me not to take her word for it, but rather find out for myself. She then asked me if I would like the missionaries to come over. I was intrigued. I felt confident enough in our friendship that I wouldn't be harmed, so I said, "Sure, send them on over." I'll admit I was a little closed minded at first, but then some of the things they said made sense. Upon further investigation and checking things out, I began to wonder what all the fuss was about. I've been told by the majority of the other churches that the Mormons are sincerely wrong in their beliefs. I've been a Mormon now for eleven years and I have seen nothing but the most devout Christian people in the world. I definitely feel the Holy Spirit in the meetings. I know God is there and blesses everything that is done there. In the past few years I have visited friends at their churches and wonder why they attend. It is all very difficult to understand. They seem lifeless with no authority, preaching the same messages over and over again. Before I became a Mormon I would listen to those messages and wonder, "Where's the rest of the story? Where is this other flock that Jesus spoke about?" Now I've found them and I'm glad to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am an active home-teacher. This means that myself and a companion go and visit certain families on a monthly basis in their homes. We follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit about what to discuss with them. We check on their family situations and see if there is anything we can do to help when needed. Not just US... but the church as a whole. I sing in the choir and love to participate in meetings.
