Hi I'm Miles Farnsworth

I am a missionary serving in Wellington, New Zealand. I love reading, writing, sports, and people. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am serving as a missionary in the Wellington New Zealand Mission. I couldn't be happier with this call, and I am thrilled to be able to teach others the truths which I know. I love to read and write. I'll play any sport. I play in several bands; Singing is a huge hobby of mine, as is guitar. I like to cook and make new friends. I love nature. Backpacking, snowshoeing, and hiking are my favorite outdoor hobbies.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon by choice. Although I was born into the Church, it's my decision to live how I live. I believe it is obvious that the lifestyle of someone who lives by the standards of the Church is a happier life and one with more fulfillment. To feel like you always have a Heavenly Father to whom you can communicate with as personally as you wish is an enormous comfort to me. Without that relationship my life would not be as easy or happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my active participation in the gospel. I served as the Seminary President of my school. The faith and diligence of students there is incredible. I got to see first hand how Christ helps and comforts them. I live my faith by reflecting the light of Christ so others can feel his presence through me. As a full time missionary I spread the gospel and inviting all to come unto Christ.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Miles Farnsworth
Our body is a gift from God that is was only available by choosing to come to Earth. Without our bodies, we would be incapable of experiencing many of the things we do. Because of this, we should treat it with the utmost care and respect. Show more Show less
