Hi I'm AnnaLisa Watkins

I grew up in family of six girls. I am going on a mission. I am 20 years old and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love photography and I want to go to school to do something in the medical field. Right now I am preparing to go on a mission for the LDS church. I am going to the Peru Trujillo mission. I am the oldest of five sisters.And I love this church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in His plan, and that plan is the plan of salvation. The plan is simple Families can be together forever and if we are righteous and follow the example of Jesus Christ and endure to the end, we will be able to see our family and be with them for time and all eternity. When I was a freshman in high school my sister passed away. She was 7 years old at the time. And that is when the plan really made me think about the church. I was raised in the church and our family had struggles but this was one of the things that could have broke our family. But we decided that if she had to leave us that meant that Heavenly Father, who loves us all, had a plan for her in heaven. I also decided from that day on that I would always do the right thing and live the gospel to the best of my ability so that I will be able to see her again. I testify that if you are willing to follow Christ and Endure to the end you will be rewarded. I know with all my heart that this church is true and I know that through this gospel I will be able to see and talk to my beautiful little sister again. I say these things in the name of His son Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday. Right now I have a calling to be a Missionary and I am waiting to be sent off to Peru and to teach the people there about the gospel.
