Hi I'm Hermana Dawson

I am a Missionary in the Uruguay Montevideo West mission. I love to sing. I love my family.

About Me

I am the second of 5 children. I absolutely love my family. My family is the most important thing in my life, second to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Uruguay Montevideo West Mission. When I get back I plan on being a Music Major at BYU-Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all of my life, and it is just awesome to be able to know that somebody will always be there to love me and care for me. I love being able to know that I can love with my family again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by being an example to others, and by studying the scriptures and praying every morning and night.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Hermana Dawson
The purpose for the Temples are for people who are dead and for your own spirituality. When people turn 12 years old, if they are worthy, can go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. Also, once you get married , if you get married in the temple, you can be sealed for time and all eternity. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending church and the temple?

Hermana Dawson
When you are at the temple you are preparing yourself, and others who have died, for eternal life. At church you learn about the gospel and the importance of the church, the Book of Mormon, and our prophets. Int the temple you are getting ready to live with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. Show more Show less
