Hi I'm Cameron

I grew up with the best family in the world. I like to be with my friends and help those around me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 20 years old. I graduated high school in 2011 and attended college for one semester and now I'm on a mission. I'm pretty average. I love all my family and friends. I do lots and lots of things for fun with my friends and family. I play all sorts of sports, skateboard, bike, hike, watch movies, play video games, card games, board games, all sorts of things and I'm not particularly good at any one of them but that doesn't matter to me as long as it's fun. I don't know what I want to do for a career yet or anything, but my greatest desire is simply to be the best person I can and to me that means helping everyone I know to be happy and to develop my relationship with God and Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, my father being a convert. However, my faith in this church is not because I grew up in it or because of the influence of my family. I have come to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true for myself. I don't have an awesome conversion story like my father, but because I have believed and put my faith in the Lord I have seen miracles both small and big. Every single one of my prayers, if I have prayed in faith, has been answered and it's not because I'm special or anything but know that's because my Father in Heaven lives and loves me and He cares for me as an individual just as He does for every single one of us. I have seen the Gospel change lives, including my own. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, that the Book of Mormon is the Word of God, and that we have a living prophet on the earth today. Whoever you are and whatever your circumstances, if you're looking for something more in your life, this church is what you've been looking for and this is what God wants for you. I may only be 20 years old, but I know my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ and I strive to know them better every day and I know that to them each and every one of us means more to them than we can possibly comprehend.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'm in the Virginia Chesapeake Mission spanish-speaking. For these two years, I have set aside all worldly pursuits and am devoting all of my time to preaching the Gospel and serving the Lord and the people around me. Even before my mission and when I get back, I always think about my actions and try to live my life in harmony with how the Lord wants me to live it. Do I make mistakes? Probably more than most people, but I know as long as I'm trying my best to improve and if I really care about the Lord and those around me then the Lord will help me acheive my goals and I've seen him help me already so much.
