Hi I'm Pam McIntyre

I'm a Mormon. Hi, I grew up in New York and joined the church in the Philippines.

About Me

I have four grown children, three sons and one daughter and ten grandchildren and two great grandkids. My passion is singing, swimming, photography, star gazing and of coarse my family and friends. I love to read true life stories especially about our presidents. It is a joy to watch our two young, elementary age granddaughters grow and learn about the world around them.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of Jesus Christ's church because since I was small I always loved him and wanted to know more about him. I always have had questions about why are we here, where are we going and so when our neighbors in the Philippines answered all of my questions they asked if I would like the missionaries to teach me. Of coarse I said yes. After the first discussion I knew the church was true that Joseph Smith, a fourteen year old boy, did see the Father and the Son in the Sacred Grove. He did translate the Golden Plates, an ancient record of the people on the American Continent and the Saviors visit to them as a resurrected being. I've been a member of the church now for almost 44 years and have loved every minute of it. It provides me with greater understanding about gospel principles and the Plan of Happiness. I hope you too will read the Book of Mormon, another witness of Jesus Christ. It goes hand in hand with the Bible but the plain and precious truths are found in the Book of Mormon. The admonition of Moroni in chapter 10:3-5 sunk deep into my heart and I received a testimony for myself through the power of the Holy Ghost. You can too.

How I live my faith

Visiting teaching is one of my favorite things to do. We visit the ladies (sisters) in our ward (congregation) and become friends, caring for them and their families. When they are sick we bring in meals, help clean their homes, take care of them like the Savior would. I have loved teaching our Primary children over the years and have learned right along with them as I study the lesson. Singing in our ward and stake choirs is always a joy for me. We have pass along cards that tell about the Saviors life that I like giving out to people I meet at the grocery store or at work or at the fast food window. I enjoy serving the Lord by doing kindnesses to all I meet. A smile, a positive word is what I try to do on my daily walk in this life.
