Hi I'm Jess O'Riordan

I'm Australian. I'm an Italy Milan missionary. I love the gospel and Tuesday night pizza night! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to get out and play sports! I love the beach and live for summer, but right now the beach is empty as I spend my time teaching the gospel as a missionary in Milan Italy. I'm part of a family of four and am the oldest brother of the three greatest siblings on earth! I love to have fun, to laugh and play basketball. Right now I am absolutely loving my time as a missionary in Italia!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know that Jesus Christ lives and is the savior of this world. This church contains the fullness of the Gospel of Christ, including the authority of his priesthood and the ordinances that are necessary for salvation. It is the only way to achieve eternal exaltation and the only way to dwell with Heavenly Father and our families forever.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church, I try my hardest to uplift those around me and be an example of a righteous follower of Jesus Christ. As a missionary I spread the happy message of the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone I can, and try to share the hope it brings me with all. I wake up at 6.30 every morning, spend hours studying the scriptures and even more hours speaking with people on the street and in homes about Christ and his church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The happiness I feel living the life of a missionary is a testimony to me of the truthfulness of my calling and of this gospel. This church is where happiness is found!

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?
