Hi I'm Parker

I'm learning Portuguese. I love to sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I am currently serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been assigned to serve in Juiz de Fora, Brazil region. I am currently working on learning Portuguese so that I can communicate with the Brasilieros. Portuguese is hard, but I think that it is a lot of fun to speak another language. My most prized talent is singing. I think that music and singing are fundamental ways to connect to our emotions. More specifically, sacred music can help us feel the love of God and connect to the Holy Spirit. I use my singing abilities to cheer myself up when I feel down, but I also love to sing in order to bless the lives of others. There is nothing better than a happy song.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a witness from the Holy Ghost that the principles taught in the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are true. The Holy Ghost testifies in feelings of peace; the witness is a personal, powerful, and intimate assurance of the truth of all things. There is no other knowledge that I hold more dearly. My life has not always been filled with good choices, but I have chosen to change in order to more fully live by correct principles. In changing, I have seen the joy and happiness of coming unto Christ and striving to be like Him. In this Church, I feel a fullness of God's love and power manifest.

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith by serving as a missionary. I am serving because I feel indebted to the gospel of Jesus Christ and because I feel so much joy in speaking about the gospel. For the next two years, I will be spending every moment of every day thinking about how I can help others come unto Christ and be blessed by His message. It is a little intimidating, but I know that it is the right thing for me to be doing at this point in my life.
