Hi I'm Antonina Lupashko

I'm from Kiev, Ukraine. I'm cute and funny. Love to dance in the rain . I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have family of five: dad, mom, sister, brother in law and me. I received my masters degree in economics at the University in Kiev. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ for 6 years now. I was Orthodox before, then me and my sister met missionaries 9 years ago at a free English class in Ukraine. They started to teach us more, but we weren't interested at the time. They gave us a copy of the Book of Mormon and I just put it on my shelf. I never opened to check what was in it. Then one day I thought that I either need to take it back to the church or start to read it. I started reading it! It was an interesting story, but nothing more. But when I started to apply it's teachings and started to pray, it made sense to me. I felt very strong feelings of peace and comfort in my heart that it was true. I was baptized 6 months later. I'm currently serving as a full time missionary in the Salt Lake City, Utah Temple Square Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Church of Jesus Christ has been restored again on the earth. I know that, because I studied this message, applied it in my life and prayed to know if this is true. I received my personal answer. Feeling that came to me through the Holy Ghost was powerful, but also quiet. I know with all my heart that this is true! I know it, I love it, I live it!

How I live my faith

During my 6 years as a member I have served in many church callings. Such as Sunday school teacher, First Counselor in the Young Women's organization, and I helped organize activities for the young single adults in my city. I'm trying to live my faith everyday and it's something that makes me happy and strong.
