Hi I'm Loretta

I am African. Sporadic and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished serving the good people of England as a missionary. I was in the England Leeds Mission. I turn every experience into an adventure, and expect all who come with me to enjoy the ride.

Why I am a Mormon

Its all about finding happiness, a balance, a purpose. I knew I needed something true & will make me happy. I learnt about the Atonement and how it can not only enable but redeem anyone who has a desire to change. I felt how God loved me and truly requires only the best for me. I learnt that what is important to me is important to God because He loves me. Prayer is so important to having that relationship with our Heavenly Father, he knows you and he wants to hear from you always. I loved serving a full-time mission in Leeds England. I met the most amazing people who were always willing to help & learn more about the restored gospel.

How I live my faith

As a missionary I had the privilege to meet a lot of people every single day. I know that the message of the restored gospel I got to share with people is true, it can improve the quality of their lives. I have been blessed to know that Heavenly Father loves me and wants whats best for me. As I pray, read the scriptures and serve others I have felt that everyone is loved by God. I also know that can be the same for absolutely EVERYONE!

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Loretta
NOPE, NO...There are no race or color restrictions as to who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are also no race or color restrictions as to who can have the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Everyone is welcome and we are all part of Heavenly Fathers family, so feel free to attend with us. Gordon B. Hinckley, prior President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, reaffirmed this principle when speaking to the National Press Club in Washington D.C.: “We believe in the old adage that many hands make light work. We have a lay priesthood, and every worthy man is eligible to receive this priesthood.” Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Loretta
Its the BEST thing Ever!!!! One of the greatest reasons for being here on earth is to "have joy". As for me I have personal prayer, scripture study, and when I attend church it helps me to better understand that. The best way to find joy and happiness is to love and serve those around you. As a missionary it brings such good feelings that only come from serving other Heavenly Fathers children. Families are an essential part of God's Plan and much of how we live focuses on our families. We want to share that happiness we enjoy with everyone. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Loretta
Missionaries yep thats me, so we share a message about Jesus Christ and His Atonement for all people. We teach about our Heavenly Father’s great plan of salvation, which allows all people the opportunity to return to Him. Now thats something precious and will make anyone happy. Show more Show less

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

Loretta
Our primary family worship service is called sacrament meeting. This meeting is held in our chapels on Sunday and lasts approximately 70 minutes. Visitors are welcome to attend. It is common for families to attend, and we are accustomed to having children as part of the congregation. So just come and enjoy, nomatter your age, there is something for everyone!! :D Show more Show less
