Hi I'm Simon Comtois

I grew up in Quebec City and I am currently studying to become a pharmacist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently studying at saint-lawrence and await my admission in either medecine or pharmacy at Ulaval. I love playing basketball and enjoy watching it. I love any kind of sports. I lived 6 years in California where I also served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Anaheim for 2 years. I have been married for almost 2 years and await a baby.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the LDS Church my entire life; however, I became inactive at the age of 12 years old because I did not have a personal testimony of its teachings. At the age of 18 years old, I saw that my life was not going in the right way so I decided to look for a way to come back on the right way that leads to true happiness. I come to the conclusion that if I read the Book of Mormon, I could know if the LDS Church was the true and living Church on earth. In my mind, if the Book of Mormon contained the word of God, then Joseph Smith was a true prophet, given that he had translated it. Moreover, if Joseph Smith was a true prophet, then the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true and living Church of earth. Upon reading the Book of Mormon every night, I fervently prayed for answers. I received many witnesses throughout my prayers that the Book of Mormon was the word of God along with the Bible. I then decided to dedicate my life to the teachings of Jesus Christ and decided to serve a mission in order to preach this good news to the entire world. Since that day, I have been faithful to the teachings of the gospel and have witnessed many miracles throughout my life. I have found true happiness my life thanks to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have served a full time mission in Anaheim, California for two years and enjoyed it very much. I have witnessed countless miracles throughout my years in the Church. I have taught the youth for a year and am now serving as the Clerk for my branch. I married a beautiful wife about 2 years ago and thanks to the gospel of Jesus Christ, there is so much love and happiness in our home. We are soon to be parents and are looking forward to having a big family. We seek for opportunities to serve our community and those that stand in need and we have seen many blessings in our lives.
