Hi I'm Elese

I'm from Arizona. I am about to serve a mission in Chicago. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a 19 year old freshman going to college. I was planning on going to school for a couple more years, but last October when the missionary age was changed, I knew this was my opportunity to serve the Lord. I am going to the Illinois Chicago Mission, will be speaking English, and I leave June 12th. I am so very excited to embark on this journey and bring people unto Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this church makes me happy!! I have been a member of the church my whole life and ever since I was a little kid just starting to learn the basics, I have known that this was the true church. This church means more to me than anything in the world. When I am following God's commandments I can feel his blessings enriching my life. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. They care about me. And they want me to be happy. I know that I am a Daughter of my Heavenly Father, who loves me more than we can comprehend. I know that the Lord is in every aspect of our lives. And if we let him in, then He will guide us along the path that is intended for us. We are never alone. And I know that when we are going through hard times all we need to do is pray and Heavenly Father will be listening and he will make our burden lighter. I also know that the Lord has perfect timing, and He above any body else knows what we need and when we need it. I do not fear the future because I know that if I live righteously I will have nothing to fear

How I live my faith

I am currently attending a Young Single Adult ward, which is a ward for mainly college students. I do not have a calling but once a month I go and visit two sisters in my ward and make sure that they are doing alright.
