Hi I'm Anaelisa Reigh Goodpasture

I was born in Mexico. Im going to serve a mission in Lima Peru. I was in the Navy. I am a convert, and Im a Morman.

About Me

I Love to sing, music is pretty much my life. I am about to serve a mission in Lima North Peru! When i get back from my mission i plan on going to BYU-Idaho. I love to ride horses, i have 4 horses and 2 mules.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at the age of 9, my mom and I were Catholic. Even when i was little at the age of 8 i felt a little out of place at the church we were at. My mom started dating this guy, and he invited us to church one day as a request from his dad for fathers day. We went and then there I felt more wanted and loved, immediately after the Sacrament Meeting (where we bless and partake of the bread and water) a girl came up to me and said, "I want to be your friend, I'll show you where we go to next for Sunday School." and we have been friends ever since, 14 years and still going. I felt inside of me that what we were being taught and what the missionaries were teaching was and is true, so I made the decision to be baptized. My mom also got baptism the same day i did.

How I live my faith

I was a ward missionary in my ward, which means I helped the missionaries in my area get familiar with the area and meet lots of new please to preach the gospel to. I am also a school teacher at a private school in my city, Brighton Academy. I teach 7th grade math and i am also an assistant first grade teacher. I love to teach little kids the importance of working hard and that learning can always be fun. I also help out in the Young Women's Program in my ward. it is a program that help guide and build a sure foundation in young women, setting good and moral standards to live by for the rest of their lives.
