Hi I'm Jacqui Mitchell

I grew up in the beautiful twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago with lots of siblings. I work in the Airport, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, it feels so great to be a convert of the true church!! I have been a convert for sixteen years. I met the missionaries by chance, while working at my brother's eatery in my hometown. They invited me to church and I immediately accepted, was baptized about a month after, and haven't regretted it up to this day. I have neer been married, but is the mother of two wonderful young men who are also converts. The elder is a returned missionary and served in the Dominican Republic. My dreams/goals, is to go to the Temple and even served a full-time mission, which I hope to accomplish in the very near future!! My hobbies are cooking, sight-seeing, meeting people and even though I love and appreciate myself, I enjoy taking time-out from myself to do something worthwhile for someone else. I have a personal testimony of the church and the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. The path wasn't an easy path to follow and I've been tempted and tried, but there is no other place I would rather be, than on that path that would eventually lead me back to exaltation. I am truly bless, I am happy, I am surrounded by a wonderful family, both spiritual and biological. I am so grateful for the trials I have been through, because it has made me into a stronger better human being and more appreciative of the things that really matters, not only in this life, but also in the next one. And it doesn't matter how great my problems are, my Heavenly Father is greater than my greatest problem!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Seventh Day Adventist, I was a very strong participant in the Salvation Army and the African Methodist Episcopal, I also attended the Pentecostal Church and the Catholic church, but despite all that religion, and all that time spent going to church, I still was able to find time to do all the things that the world had to offer and did it with the same zeal as I did in the church. That is, until I met the missionaries, and take them up on their invitation to attend The Mormon Church! What I have been missing all these years, I found it in The Church of Jesus Christ of latter-Day Saints, the very first day I walk into their branch!! I have seen so many changes in my life and those around me, that it was simply put, AMAZING!! I have never look back. Don't get me wrong, I have had my share of trials, but I was always able to bounce back and continue on the path. After all, He never said, it would be easy, but He did say, it would be worth it!! It is worth it! For the curious ones out there, who wants to take that step, listen to your heart! Know for yourself, feel it, live it, and then believe it, because it is true!! Without a shadow of a doubt, I know this is the restored Gospel on the face of the earth today. So please be open-minded and give it a chance, and more so, give Him a chance!! We are really a chosen and bless people!!!

How I live my faith

Since I have been a Mormon, I have try to be the best I can possibly be. I have been a helper and a friend and try most times to inconvient myself to do something worthwhie. I have served as the first and second consellor of R.S, the Young Women's President, Adult Literacy Teacher, Choir Director, Branch Chorister, District Missionary, Teacher in Gospel Principles, and I now serve as the Secretary of R.S. I take the time to call when I dont have time to visit and see the many blessings in my life as I do these things. I also see the many blessings of being a full-tithe payer and continue to grow in strength! I also take time to try and be at every baptism and try to support as many investigators and new members as I can(I can only do that much), lol. I also participate in all Ward activities! I try to stand as a witness for Christ at all times, in all things and in all places. I avoid temptations and try to avoid all contention and strife, and things that will vex my spirit. I know Heavenly Father truly loves me, so I try to always lead by his exanple.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Jacqui Mitchell
A testimony is a spiritual witness given to an individual by the Holy Ghost. The foundation of a Mormon's testimony is the knowledge that Heavenly Father lives and loves us; that Jesus Christ lives, that He is the Son of God, and that He carried out the infinite Atonement; that Joseph Smith is a prophet, which God called to restore Jesus Christ church to the earth; that we are led today by a living prophet (Thomas S. Monson); and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the Saviour's Church restored on the earth today. Show more Show less
