Hi I'm David

I'm a missionary serving in Miami, Florida; and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love playing soccer and swimming, but my true passion is music. I play the guitar, and enjoy spending time with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I'm a Mormon because I know this to be the true church of Jesus Christ. I have studied many hours, and prayed and fasted many times to receive an answer from Heavenly Father that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is His kingdom upon the face of the earth today. I know that Jesus is the Christ, and the savior and redeemer of mankind. I know that by having faith in Him means trusting in Him and following Him.

How I live my faith

I'm a missionary, and my calling is to preach the everlasting gospel and invite others to come unto Christ. I live my faith by being an example of the believer. As missionaries we are called to be representatives of Christ, to do the things he would do, to say the things he would say and to be who he wants us to be.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

David
Our purpose in life is to have joy. Heavenly Father has blessed us with so many incredible things to help us to have joy. We came to earth to receive a physical body, and to grow in a family. We are also here to learn and progress. Thoughout our lives we have many choices that we make that will help us, or hurt us. Heavenly Father has blessed us with His commandments to help us make correct choices and learn His laws. Through obedience to these commandments, we are blessed with love and comfort from our Heavenly Father. The gospel of Jesus Christ: Faith in Jesus Christ, Repentance, Baptism, The Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the end; is how we have joy in this life. Show more Show less
