Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Rachel Whitmer

I love my friends, I love to dance like a crazy person, and have fun all the time with whoever I'm with! I'm proud to be a Mormon!

About Me

I was that kid who was just happy all the time no matter what was going on. For some amazing reason I just always have a smile on my face and I know it's because of the gospel. I have the best family ever, and we love to play card games, go camping, boating, and watch the west wing. I love music, games, traveling, and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to go to Law School and step foot on every continent by the time I'm 30. I'm a bit of a dreamer :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because this is where dreams come true. It's kind of like Disneyland...but real life. We all have rough times, and I've had my share, but when you know that there is sure doctrine, when you know your church is true, and when you know that there is a plan of happiness that God has made just for you, it makes everything okay. I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet, and because of the Book of Mormon I have come to understand more personally the love my Savior has for me. I know the Atonement of Jesus Christ is real, and I know it changes lives, it's changed mine. There is so much hope here that you just can't find anywhere else. Everyone belongs here including you, no one is excluded from the blessings of God. I'm a Mormon, because it's true, and life is just better here.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just loving everyone. The moment I meet someone they're basically my best friend. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has allowed me to know personally the love my Heavenly Father has for me, and when you know how much you are loved by God, you change. I'm not perfect but I sure try, and I change a little bit everyday. Currently I'm serving a mission in Charlotte, NC, and sharing what I know with everyone I meet is the greatest blessing I have ever received.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?
