Hi I'm Aberash

I love soccer, I am a proud Ethiopian, I love my family and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I moved to the USA when I was 6 from Ethiopia! I love my family and am so greatful I can be with them forever. I love soccer. I love seminary and I love being the youngest of 7 kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon because of the closeness that I feel to my heavenly father. I love the peace he gives me when I need it. I love knowing there is someone I can ALWAYS turn to in my times of need. I love Knowing I can be with my family forever. I know that I will sin, but knowing there is someone who loves me and will forgive me and strengthen me is what I love about being a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because I know Jesus Christ loves me, and I love him.

How I live my faith

The biggest way that I live my faith is in what I do every day. I dress modestly and attend early morning (very early) seminary every morning. I do my Personal Progress. I try to read my scriptures every night. I pray to my Heavenly Father so I can always have his love with me. I live my faith by helping out in any way I can! Service is how I show my faith. I share the gospel with my friends and those around me. I am prepaing to serve a mission one day. I can't wait for the day when I can teach others about my faith and share with them the joy I feel and the love I feel.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

When I wanted to know if this church was true I prayed to my heavenly father in a way I had never done before. I searched my scriptures and one night after I had said my prayer and was laying in bed I got my answer. I started crying like I had never done before. They were not tears of sadness but tears of joy! I had gotten my answer and I knew at that moment that the church was true. I say to you if you want to know if its true pray. Don't give up if you do not get an answer right away. Pray often and I promise you that you will get an answer. Show more Show less
