Hi I'm Anna

I was born in Russia. I love God and my family. I am very hapy and blessed person. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music, especially playing my flute and I love performing. I am also interested in psychology and geography. I work at a tour company and I like learning about other countries and speaking foreign languages, especially English and French.

Why I am a Mormon

I met mormon missionaries when I was 14. At that time I was looking for something in my life or someone who would share the same moral principles as I had and tried to live. I was thinking about joining and attending some church when I become older. But I couldn't make my choice and I didn't care too much. But I am very happy that God led me to His church when I was young. I found a lot of people sharing the principles I wanted to live, I met a lot of great people who are still my friends. I also learned about Joseph Smith's Vision of Our Heavenly Father and our Savior. I read the Book of Mormon and I couldn't deny the feelings I had about its message. I simply know that this book and this Church are true. And I am happy that I made a covenant with God and got baptized. I still feel that it's true and right decision whenever I read the scriptures. I found the answers for my questions about life. I found the meaning of my life on the Earth. I realized how much God loves me and that He has a plan for me. Now I am very happy and I know that I can be a better person when I follow the commandments. I have a deep testimony and feeling in my heart and mind that this Church is true. 8 years after first meeting with missionaries I went on my mission and my testimony about this Church and my Savior has strengthened.

How I live my faith

I have an opportunity to participate in a lot of activities for youth. In my branch I am responsible for activities strengthening women and their families. I learned a lot how to serve and help others in their need. Every week we have a special class for young adults where we study the scriptures. I also participate in organizing events and activities for young singles in Moscow, such as big conferences where about 200 young people from several Russian cities gather for 3-4 days and have spiritual seminars and workshops, sport, dance and other fun activities. It is very fun and helps me to follow Christ and gives me an opportunity to help others to learn of His teachings.
