Hi I'm Emil Rappleye

I am a Mormon. Nothing brings me more joy :)

About Me

I was born and grew up in the beautiful valley of Fresno, California :) i swam and played with my sisters, baby brother and my dogs. my parents are the best a kid could ask for! and the best friends any one could ask for. we all hoped in the car on my 12th birthday and headed out to Syracuse Utah! there i made lots of good friends and had a lot of good opportunities. well now im out as a missionary in Tallahasse Florida! its the best place on earth and i couldnt be more happyer :) ive learned so much. ive learned service makes charity and the attonement is real. ive learned that friends are eternal and families are forever :) ive learned the book of mormon is my best friend and getting mail is like gold :) ive learned the church makes more sense than anything else in the world and faith is power. ive learned comandments are just boundaries of eternal happiness and heavenly father is a funny guy :) most of all ive learned that my savior is real. that hes there for me. that hes preparing me for anything and everything. he has a plan for me and he is showing me the way. i love him more than anything and am so gratefull i get to be his missionary! :) :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but have gained a testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel. I find no greater joy than living the teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. because i know that's the only place to find lasting joy. im happy to be a missionary and i will be forever and ever :) the gospel is not a crutch, its a strength. following its teachings brings miracles. there's good, better and best in this world and the gospel exceeds them all. i know its true, and i know that God knows it and i cannot deny it :)

How I live my faith

well I'm a missionary... :) but i think the best thing Ive learned to do be an example of my savior. ''do people know Christ because they know you?"
