Hi I'm Dean Ormsby

I grew up in Australia, I'm a tennis player, a full time missionary & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Auckland New Zealand and my family moved to Australia when i was 7 years old. I have three older sisters who have each impacted me in a different way and i am so grateful to have them in my life. I am blessed to have righteous and loving parents who have helped me embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ into my life and encourage me to reach my full potential. I wouldn't be the person i am today if it wasn't for the love and example of my parents. From a very young age i developed a passion for the game of tennis. I have been playing it ever since i was 8 years old and is a huge part of my life. I absolutely love Fish and Chips! My favourite movie trilogy is the Lord of the Rings. Watch it at least once a year! My friends have a huge part in my life and i'm grateful for the strength and support that they are to me. I believe that everything in life happens for a reason and that each day can be a good day if we choose to make it that way!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. The Book of Mormon truly is the word of God. It testifies of Jesus Christ and his infinite Atonement. I know and testify that those who seek with a humble heart and have a desire to know the truth, will find it. I know the Gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth today and that it brings peace and safety to the soul. I cannot begin to express how much this Gospel has changed my life. I know that God lives and that he has an active part in each of our lives. The only person who stops us from communicating with God is ourselves. As we feast upon the words of the Christ and emulate our Savior's example, it is inevitable that we will come to know him. I know that my Redeemer lives, what joy this sweet sentence gives! :)

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the England London South Mission! All that i am or ever will be is because of my Savior Jesus Christ. The least that i can do is serve Him and preach His Gospel. What a blessing it is to know that no matter how much we give back to our Father in Heaven, he is always giving us more. I know this Gospel is true!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Dean Ormsby
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints believes strongly in the Savior's mandate to "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations." Men and women throughout the world sacrifice their time and efforts to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They have seen the happiness the Gospel message brings and have a desire to share it with others. You may have seen missionaries where you live. They are doing everything they can to seek out people who may be interested in learning more about Jesus Christ and God's plan of happiness. It is so important that we share this message and help others come to know for themselves that God really does live, that Jesus is the Christ, and that His church is on the earth today.
