How I live my faith

Cuando yo naci parate de mi familia era miembro de la iglesia, asi que creci conociendo de ella, pero cuando estaba jovencita nos mudamos a una comunidad donde no habia iglesia asi que me aparte un poco, lo cual me dio la oportunidad de incursionar en otras religiones, hasta que mi adolecencia me encontre con la iglesia nuevamente, las expereincias en otras religiones me hizo apreciar mas, el conocimiento y la felicidad que siento en la Iglesia de Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Dias. Donde he aprendido que la manera de ser un seguidores de Jesucristo es siendo un ejemplo en plabras y acciones Es la manera que vivo mi fe, usando el arrepentiemiento diario y sirviendo a otros. Part of my family is member of the church, so I grew up knowing it, but when I was young we moved to a community where there was no church so I apart a bit, which gave me the opportunity to move into other religions, until my adolescence when I found the church again, experiences in other religions made ​​me appreciate more, knowledge and happiness I feel in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Where I learned that the way to be followers of Jesus Christ is to be an example in word and deed. It's the way I live my faith, using daily repentance and serving others.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Much of what is done in the Church is to bless and help those who are not Mormon. The Mormon Church has donated more than $1 billion in cash and material assistance to 167 different countries in need of humanitarian aid since it started keeping track in 1985. Many of these countries have few to no Mormons, but are also non-Christian. More than 53,000 Mormon missionaries serve through the world today. All of their service is to help those who are not Mormon. Joseph Smith himself taught that we are "to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to provide for the widow, to dry up the tear of the orphan, to comfort the afflicted, whether in this church, or in any other, or in no church at all."
