Hi I'm Vincent

I was born and raised in Collinsville, Illinois. I love my family! Big on sports/outdoors!!! I'm serving a mission! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My stomping grounds is Illinois and Missiouri. I love to go fishing. Anything outdoors I love to do. It's really enjoyable for me to work outside. I love country music, R&B, and acoustic. I played college baseball. I love sports. Period! I like to cook and bug my mom and aunts in the kitchen. Sisters too! I love responsibility. I like to organize and have family/friend get togethers. I'll do anything that is legal and enjoyable. I just like to have a good time! I'm starting to like reading...maybe.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member for two years. Originally, I didn't belong to any denomination. My family has always had a spiritual side but they were never constant church goers. I've always known their was a God. I didn't understand Him or what my purpose was. I always had this feeling that their was something more out there. Something better. It wasn't until after I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that I reflected on some of the times when I was younger. I used to hope and wish for a better knowledge of God. I would pray for a witness. Now, as I look back and remember when I did that I believe with all my heart that God answered my prayers. I believe those feelings and desires from when I was younger came with me when I came to this earth. The church felt familiar to me when I walked in the first day I went. I felt what I had always looked for. Then I met with the Missionaries. He knows my desires and what I wanted in this life. He has made life possible for me. God works according to His will and no one else's. He really does know us and cares for us. He will answer us in His own due time. We just have to be patient and be good people. When He does answer thats when we need to make sure we are prepared(follow the commandments) to listen to Him. He wants us to do our best in this life so we can live with Him again someday. Not only living with Him but also with my loving family. I'm a family guy. When I heard the Doctrine of the Church I knew it was true! I always believed that I could be with my family someday. Each and everyone of them. It is a merciful plan. It's the plan of eternal salvation with God and our family. We will see them all again. That is forsure! I always felt in my heart that if anyone could truly have a plan for me it was our Heavenly Father. He answered my prayers. He knew my desires at heart. Trust in His will and let Him guide your path. I know He will. The Church is true. I've felt it in my heart. I can promise you it is.

How I live my faith

At the moment my calling is to be a set apart missionary for two years. I'm serving in the Florida Tallahassee Mission. The mission consists of four states. Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi! I've served in Mobile Alabama, Douglas Georgia and currently Panama City Beach, FL. I love them all! It has been an absolute blessing to serve our Savior by teaching Gods children the gospel. Nothing feels better in this life then when you share the spirit with someone inside the walls of their home. Helping people get to know their God is a great joy for me. I always wanted to know Him when I didn't have Him in my life and I know others feel the same way out here and thats what I am here to do. To help them find God. The mission has been the best thing that has ever happened to me in my life.
