Hi I'm Ammon

Gym Most Days. XBOX Friday night. Rugby on Saturday. Church on Sunday. What? You didn't know? I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from a family of 10 kids. Your probably wondering wow that's big! Compared to other Mormon families, its average That's how important families are to God. They call my home the concrete jungle (i.e. Sydney). Well its gotta be the jungle if its going to house a man of my stature. I swing from hanging out with friends to the gym, and from the gym to the internet cafe'. If my parents asked me where I was at you could be sure to find me on my laptop. Overlooking the games, the gym, and the gangsta rep I have I enjoy playing Rugby and learning about God.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. You could say my parents were a bit hard on me about going to church, but for good reasons. I moved out of home to find work interstate. Whilst away from home I strayed from the gospel teachings. Finding myself on a low in my life my heart reflected on the words which I heard about Jesus Christ. I wanted to know if the church was true. In response I was challenged to pray and read the Book of Mormon everyday for five minutes by a church leader. Reading the Book of Mormon was pretty boring. I just read as fast as I could. Questions flooded my mind such as: Is Joseph Smith a prophet? How could he have seen an angel? How could he have seen God? I was full of doubt and so the challenge was a little difficult for me to fulfill. Overtime certain verses stuck out to me. Particularly when the Savior Jesus Christ appears to the people of the Ancient America's. What touched me most about His visit was when He proceeded to leave the people for a day, and the Savior perceives the multitudes thoughts that they are sad at his departure. Seeing this, Jesus Christ Himself weeps. I longed to have the Savior in my life. I wanted him in my life like the people of the America's. I prayed daily for God to help me know that the Book of Mormon was true. I had heard of others receiving a warm feeling testifying to them that the Book of Mormon was true. When I finished reading the Book of Mormon, I was eager to pray so that I could also receive this warm feeling in my heart. My prayer concluded. I was looking for some WARMTH but felt NOTHING. What a waste of time! I thought... However I continued reading. I never received any such warm feeling in my soul. I was about to give up reading the Book of Mormon when a voice whispered 'Remember when you first started reading.' As I looked back over the course of my time reading the Book of Mormon it suddenly dawned on me that I knew it was true! My witness that it was true came a little at a time, overtime.

How I live my faith

White shirt, Black tag and a hand-me-down tie. I must be a Mormon missionary! Being an missionary is a bit challenging yet rewarding. We are on the front lines talking with people from all walks of life about the Gospel. On top of teaching about Jesus Christ we help out in the community with different service programs. I myself previously volunteered at a charitable organization known as FoodBank. We helped to rescue food that was being thrown away by large corporate companies, to give it to the poor and struggling families. If I could summarize it all into one line it would be as follows "Being a Latter-day Saint is not only my religion, it's my way of life".
