Hi I'm Britton

I am a serving as an LDS missionary in El Salvador. I love choral conducting, the Italian language, and baking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the El Salvador San Salvador East Mission. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to teach others about this restored gospel and about the light and happiness that comes through our Savior, Jesus Christ. I was a student at Brigham Young University previous to my mission and will continue my education there when I return. My major is Music Education--choral emphasis, and I am fascinated with the process of successfully conducting a choir. I love the way you can communicate emotion and belief through music. I can hardly wait to become a teacher and have choirs of my own to shape and inspire. I am a huge fan of movies and musicals, and enjoy attending concerts of any sort. I also love the Italian language and have sung several Italian arias. I took a trip to Italy before my mission and loved hearing the language and music, seeing the amazing historical sites, and eating Italian food! I am an avid baker and my ultimate dream is to someday own a bakery.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the Gospel is what makes me most happy. I know that this is Jesus Christ's church on the earth today and that He leads it through His prophet. I love serving and helping people, and this Gospel is focused all around that. I am a Mormon because I love that this Gospel is constantly inspiring me to become better.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a sister missionary in El Salvador and will be here for 18 months. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end. This is my purpose in all that I do every day. It is hard work, but it is worth seeing the happiness that others find when they accept this restored truth. I have also been a part of many service clubs and organizations, because the Savior taught that we must love and serve one another. With one organization in particular, called YouthLINC, I put together a clothing drive in my community and took the proceeds to a village called Palmeras along the Amazon River in Peru. There, I worked with a team of 42 people to build a school and provide education lessons to those in the village. I have served in various positions or callings in the church, and before my mission I was on a committee with girls that lived around me at BYU. We planned a night every month where girls around us could meet and participate in a service project or learn a new skill.
