Hi I'm Kelsey Branchflower

I'm a student. I'm a sister. I'm a full-time missionary in Latvia! and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have completed two years of University and am working towards a major in Economics. Right now though I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I have the wonderful opportunity to serve in Latvia. I love learning about everthing, especially if it involves puzzles. In my free time I like playing sports, especially soccer and rugby, and every now and then I try to read a good book. But most of all I love just spending time with family and friends, especially if that involves ice cream.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up a member of the Church, and I am very much thankful for that. As I have grown up, and with the help of loving parents and other church leaders I have been able to build my own testimony. I know that living the gospel has helped me in numerous ways that I can recognize, and I find more reasons to be thankful with every passing day. By growing up in the church, I have always had access to the knowledge that I am a beloved daughter of Heavenly Father, and that he cares about me and wants me to be happy. and that is something I will always be grateful for. I know that by following his teachings I will be able to be truly happy and return to live with him once again. Life may not always be easy, but with the loving help of the Lord I know that I can make it through anything. I know that Jesus Christ is my Saviour and that through the atonement I will be able to be cleansed of all my sins when I make mistakes. I am so excited to have the chance to go to the Baltics where I can share the gospel with the people there!

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve in the Church, including helping out with the Young Single Adults (ages 18 - 30), the Young Women (girls aged 12 - 18), and teaching six- and seven-year-old children on Sundays. I love being able to be involved with all age groups as they are so different, yet all benefit from living the gospel. I currently am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in the Balic Mission. In Latvia, I will have the opportunity to serve all and share the resored gospel to all who will listen. I have had many opportunities to see how the gospel has blessed my life, through guidance from a loving Heavenly Father, and greater peace and happiness when I live the principles that I know o be true. I am so excited to share this message!
