Hi I'm Annabel

I'm from England. I'm a missionary proudly serving in the Rancho Cucamonga mission! And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving in the California Rancho Cucamonga mission, and I love it! I am serving the Lord for a period of 18 months. Each day we help people to come unto Christ and serve everyone around us. Once I have completed my mission I hope to go into the Health profession. I have 3 siblings, 2 sisters and a brother, and I love them all to pieces! I love sport too, especially Rounders, Netball and Ice Skating!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the Church, the truths of the gospel slowly sunk into my heart and I know the Church is true. I love being part of a Church that answers the big life questions like 'Where did I come from?' 'Why am I here?' and 'What happens after death?'. It gives my life purpose and helps me to strive to be a better person each day. I know the Church is true because of the feelings of peace and truth I get when I attend church or read the scriptures. My faith has been strengthened so much during my mission. I can see how much living the gospel blesses families and individuals. How having faith in Jesus Christ can help you get through any trial. I'm a Mormon because this church teaches you exactly how you can get closer to Christ and access that strength in your life. I love it, I know that this church is Christ's church restored in these days, and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and can bless your life so much!

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is definitely not just for Sundays! It is who we are, and it is at the heart and center of all we do and say. I live my faith through all the choices and actions I take. In how I talk, dress and act. One of those choices I've made is to serve a full time mission for the church. I live every day for the Lord as I share the truths that I hold dear. We look for opportunities to serve those around us and try to help them have the same happiness we do. I study the scriptures every day and learn about Christ and his teachings and then share what I learn with those around me, and apply what I've learnt to help myself become a better person. Everyday I live and share the gospel and I love it!

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are most definitely Christians. The name of the church even indicates that we are Christians: 'The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints'. In the Book of Mormon, in 2 Nephi 25:26 it says 'we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins'. Jesus Christ is the center and heart of our religion, in everything we do we look to Christ as our example. We try to live as He did, we follow Him, we worship Him and we know that it is only through Jesus Christ and His Atonement that we can be saved. Show more Show less
