Hi I'm Teresa

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I grew up in a Military family and have lived in a few different places in my life. I am currently serving as a Full-time Missionary in the Canada Toronto Mission. I love to spend time with my family and watch as my nieces and nephews grow. I am a book worm and usually always have a book with me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS Church. When I turned 8 I got baptized because that is what I knew I needed to do. I didn't gain my own testimony until I started 9th grade. My family was going through some hard times and I was confused about why it was happening. I prayed to Heavenly Father and asked Him to help me and to help me gain a testimony and to know why those things were happening. One day while in Seminary we were talking about why Christ gives us trials. At that moment the Lord softened and touched my heart. He let me know that there was a light at the end of the tunnel and that I was going to learn something from the things that I was going through. He helped me to know that the things that I had been taught all my life really was true and through that experience I started to gain my own testimony and came to know the truths.

How I live my faith

I am serving as a Full-time missionary in the Canada Toronto Mission. I find people to teach and help them come to know for them selves that this is God's true church on the Earth. I love serving the Lord and helping His children.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Teresa
The activities of the missionaries are funded by the missionaries and their family. They save money and pay for their missions. The people that serve missions want to be there. They want to be serving the Lord and sharing the truths that they know, so they provide a way themselves to be able to do that because they love the Lord with all their hearts. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Teresa
God loves his children and wants us to be able to return home to Him someday. Because of that love He continues to give us prophets to lead and guide us. He calls prophets to guide His children (us) and to help us know of the things that we need to know in this day and age. Thomas S. Monson is currently the prophet of the Church. He was called by God to be the Prophet and to lead the church through revelation from Him. Show more Show less
