Hi I'm Malika

I grew up in Southern California. I play soccer and trombone. I'm studying French and linguistices and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student, majoring in Fench and minoring in linguistics. I love France and life! Someday I hope to live there because I love the people, the food and the language. I like playing soccer, even though I haven't been on a team in awhile. I've played trombone since I was 10, and playing and listening to good music makes me happy. I enjoy laughing and watching musicals and old movies. I like getting to know people one on one. I can be a little shy, but I've been working really hard to come out of my shell.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I have felt God's love for me and all of His children as I pray for guidance. I know that He want us to come back to Him, and He has given us a church and commandments so that we will be comfortable with Him. I feel so blessed to have the Gospel in my life and know that there are many blessings to come to all of us if we listen to His will. I have prayed about the Book of Mormon and found our for myself that the principles in that book are true. Because of this I want to share it with everyone that I can so they can feel the peace that I feel because of Jesus Christ and his Atonement. Though none of us are perfect. Christ suffered and died for us so that we could be perfected in Him. He loves us very much and wants what is best for us. I love our Heavenly Father and want to make Him happy, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a full time missionary. My purpose in going there is to teach others about Jesus Christ and His wonderful plan He has to help us be happy. I hope to find many people to serve in anyway I can, because even if they aren't interested in the message I carry, I can show them Christ's love by helping them. I always try to be an example to my friends. Like I mentioned before, I can be a little shy. Sharing the Gospel with words has been hard for me, so I've done the best I can to tell others about my beliefs by my actions. I like to help those around me that seem to be having a hard time, and I hope they have been able to feel God's love for them that way. I have faith that God can help us be brave, and know that He has been helping me speak with more confidence so I can reach more people and teach this His word.
