Hi I'm Stephen

I grew up in many different places, I'm the ninth out of ten kids, I love my mission more than anything! and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have moved around a lot in my life, which has helped me to get closer to my nine brothers and sisters, who are just awesome. I love basketball and almost all sports. I know it's a little nerdy, but I like to play chess. I have been in track, cross country, tennis, basketball, and choir and loved every single one of them. I have wanted to go on a mission all of my life and now that I finally have my call, to the Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, my life could not be better. I'm happy optimistic, and nothing is going to get me down.

Why I am a Mormon

I live the Gospel because I have tried to be happy without it. I tried to go it alone and see what the world had to offer and I found that the happiness that the world has is nothing in comparison to the happiness the gospel brings. I realize that I didn't even really know what happiness was until i decided to become truly converted. I thought I knew, but I really had no clue. I bear my testimony that this is the true church of Christ and if anyone wants real happiness there is only one place to find it and that is here.

How I live my faith

I am a councilor to the leader of the men in my ward. I help out by planning things, helping others follow through with there commitments, doing much service, and praying a lot. I try to be friend to everyone, and love all of my fellow men. I go out and visit less active members of the church. I preside over the council who try to set up dates and times to go to the temple and the activities we do on our way there and back. Overall I try to just be the best man I can be and letting the Lord make up for the rest.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Well the reason I am going out on a mission and am going to proselyte is this gospel makes you happier than you ever dreamed you could be happy and you want more than anything for others to have that as well. Show more Show less
