I like to play games on the computer one a lot the Journey Of Jesus it is a very good game to play.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I joined this church was because I wanted a church that I like and feel comfortable with. I have a conversion story to tell you . It all started one day while I was waiting for a bus at a bus stop on Robert Street and Moreland Ave. in West St. Paul Mn. When two young females approached me and started talking to me about God, they gave me a copy of the book of Mormon and read a few verses from Moroni chapter 10 about the Holy Ghost also they said the book was mine to keep so I took it with me since I was on my way to do grocery shopping after that went home and started the book and it inspired me to ask about being baptized . These two females were missionaries which they asked me to talk to two men that were missionaries from my church and on Dec. 21, 2012 I was baptized as a Mormon which I believe that this church is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet also Thomas Monson and I say this in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.

How I live my faith

I just received the Aaronic Priesthood on Sunday Jan. 13, 2013 and will be blessing the bread on this Sunday at the sacrament service which I feel that this was a calling from God . I live my faith to the best of my ability and know that as I progress in the church more blessings will come my way.

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

I feel that this church is the best church I have joined and will be my last one . This church does help in natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, all others. Show more Show less
