Hi I'm Marta

I am from Latvia. I know that God loves me. I am currently serving my mission in Salt Lake City Temple square. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a daughter, I am a sister! I am a second child in my family, i have an older brother. I love my brother more than anything! I am a missionary and I will always be a missionary, a representative of my Savior Jesus Christ. I just love being outdoors and I love this beautiful world that God has created. I have been lucky enough to be sent to Earth to be born in one of the most beautiful countries in the world - in Latvia! Since I was very little I have enjoyed being active and playing soccer, dancing and pretty much everything else that involves moving , running or climbing trees!! My most favorite thing is to ride my bicycle in the rain! I love learning and studying. I studied psychology for two years, then left school to go on a mission. I don't know yet who I want to be when I grow up haha! But I want to do much good I this world.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother joined the Church when I was 4 years old. I was raised to know the truth of the Gospel. I was baptized when I was 8. Soon after that we moved to another town in Latvia. We lived there for almost ten years and I became in-active being a teenager. I guess I just wanted to be accepted . I didn't know who I wanted to be, I just wanted to be "normal". So this philosophy brought me to a lot of poor choices. But I always knew that God hears my prayers. So whenever I had a hard time in my life I would talk to my Father in Heaven. I always felt so loved even if I wasn't keeping the commandments.That has thought me that God loves His children unconditionally. As I grew older I felt more lost and confused. I still couldn't deny that God is my Father, but I didn't feel strong enough to change. So when I finally came to the point in my life where I had to make a life changing decision I realized that this is who I want to be, I want to follow God, I want to live a pure life, because nothing else could bring me the happiness I desired. So I came back and started attending institute! I know that this Church is true! Jesus Christ is leading it today! There is a living prophet here on earth and he receives revelations directly from God. Faith in Christ and God has lit my life with a bright light and I know that it brings happiness and peace in my heart. I Know that God loves His children and that He always wants them to be happy and never gives up on them.
