Why I am a Mormon

I was Baptized on December 23, 2009, two long & amazing years. I grew up not really going to church or having the role of God being important in my life, we would usually only go to church for Christmas or Easter... but that's it. Ever since I was young I was always thinking of were we go after death and what my purpose was in life.. ex. "why are we really here?" My older Brother Adam started to get interested in the Church through all his friends (who were all members) when he was 17. But at the time i was young and oblivious to what my older brother was doing. My brother went on his mission to Munich, Germany but I didn't know much about it he never talked to me about it. It wasnt until I was 16-17 I went up to Provo for spring break to visit my Brother&Wife. On that trip i had an extrodinary eperience with a prayer my brother said, made me feel a feeling i had never felt before. On the plane about to leave i had the A hah moment! Thats whats missing in my life. My brother changed so much and had a light about him(as well as my mom and other members). I wanted that. Through acting on a simple invite from my brother to sincerely read the introduction of the Book of Mormon, and Mosiah 4:9-12. and pray sincerely to ask if these things are true and will help me change and allow me to find whats missing in my life. I was answered. God our Heavenly Father answered me and I know He will do the same for all that will ask with a sincere heart.

How I live my faith

I was in the Youth Council Presidency, so i helped plan all the dances and activities. I am currently serving a two year mission and a representitive of Jesus Christ, to invite others unto Christ by helping them recieve the Restored gospel, throught faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptizem, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. I was a District Leader in the MTC, I am Serving the Taipei, Tawain Mission Mandarine speaking for two honorable years. I love my faith by example. Being an example is how I am here right now. My brothers example led me to the Savior. Now i feel its my duty to live by example, to help others come unto Christ.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Kurtis Beck
The Savior taught His disciples, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations” (Matthew 28:19). As followers of Jesus Christ, members of His Church are enthusiastic about proclaiming the good news of His restored gospel to all who are willing to listen. I know that this gospel is true and has blessed me everyday of my life. It has allowed me to know Christ and to obtain the power of the atonement into my own life through repentance. I know that this gospel is true with out a doubt, and I hold that sacred. I know why I am on a mission. I know why I am here in Taiwan. I know who my Heavenly Father is. I know he loves me and every one on Earth. I know that ONLY through Jesus Christ we can over come our useless selves and become somebody our selves could never believe. I know the true power of the Atonement its real. True power that can help us change to be more like our perfect example Jesus Christ. I know that is possible through daily repentance, prayer and reading the scriptures. I know.. That Jesus... is the Christ.. the Savior and redeemer of the World. I know for a fact that Joseph Smith sae heavenly father and Jesus Christ. I know this Church is true, The true restored gospel. Because I asked God him self with a sincere heart if it was true. I bare witness and testimony that This church is true that Jesus Christ himself guides and Directs this church. And that Thomas S. Monson is a true Prophet called and sustained of God.
