Hi I'm Corey Williams

I was born in Melbourne Australia. I love just about everything! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Corey Williams. I have just recently finished high school in Melbourne Australia last year. Currently I am serving a full time mission for the LDS church in Sydney North Australia. My hobbies are cycling, diving and soccer. I love to swim and body surf at beaches, but mostly spear fish and snorkel. The church is a major part of my life and provides joy to all my experiences. When I finish my mission, I plan on studying Paramedicine and Nursing at university.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to pursue this gospel because I know it is true. I did not always know, but the spirit testified to me of its truthfulness. Every day I feel the blessings that it has brought into my life. I would not be half the person I am without it. I love the gospel with all my heart. To know that I have a father in heaven who loves me is an incredible feeling and I know that he watches over me in my daily life. Especially as a missionary I am able to feel the love of Jesus Christ constantly as I share the beauty of his gospel. I know that the church is true and Jesus Christ lives. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and we have a living Prophet on the earth today. He provides us with guidance and revelation. I know without a doubt that Heavenly Father answers our prayers if we pray with real intent. The gospel provides us with true lasting joy with our families. It fills my heart with happiness to know that I have a Father in heaven whom I love with all my being. I love my Saviour Jesus Christ. He is the light that guides us back to our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? I became a missionary. I want everyone around me to experience the joy and peace that is a part of my life, and so I am sacrificing two years to serve the Lord. Before I was a missionary however, I was just an ordinary guy. I studied, I worked and I had fun. To live my faith I always tried to serve those around me. I made it a promise to myself and the Lord that I would give everything I have to provide service to my friends, no matter who they are, and especially my family. In my ward i participate in young adult programs and really enjoy the social atmosphere of things. Im a bit of a quiet one, but that doesn't matter because everyone is so kind!
