Hi I'm Carson Gemar

I am from Utah, I love to play sports and to serve others. I am a Mormon and I am serving my mission in Washington DC South.

About Me

I am 18 years old and have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. I am a missionary and am serving in the Washington DC South mission. I am exited to know that I am out serving the Lord and that I am helping others come closer to Christ. I know that the work I am doing is importent and true. I know that what I am sharing with others will bless there lives and bring them closer to the familys and Christ. This gospel has brought me many blessings. I am a big sports guy I love baseball and any kind of contact sports. I like to exercise and work hard. My favorite team is the STL cardinals. When I was in 8th grade I played for the West Jorden high school team. In the middle of the sesson i got hurt and had surgry on my shoulder, and was not able to play after that. For my last year of high school I had the opportunity to be on the wrestling team. I was glad to be able to play on a sports team for my last year of school and to make the new friend with that.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life but not always the most active. I would only go to church a couple times a month and did not really care. but as I got older and had started to care and read and pray I new what I have and that the church is true and that everything I have been taught and still learning is true ad that are heavenly father dose have a plan for all of us and that he dose love every one of use. I am always reading the book of Mormon and when I read I just get this warm, and calm felling and every night I pray and every time I just know that the book of Mormon in true and everything it says is true and that joseph smith is a true prophet from God and that through him the church was restored. I know that he did translated the book of Mormon and that he did do as God and Christ had asked. I know that we are very loved by are heavenly father and that he dose want the best for us and I cant wait to shear all I know with the people on my mission.

How I live my faith

I am apart of the priest quorum and have been called to the first assistant. I help organize and plane activity's for the scouts and young mans. I am always looking for ways t help others and to do good for everyone I meet. I go and do home teaching on the last Sunday of every month and that gives me a chance to go out and see what the family's I teach need or just talk and see how they are doing. these things are getting me more and more prepared for my mission and I am so very thankful for it.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Carson Gemar
we was taught by are savior Jesus Christ to fallow him and what he dose. one of those big things is baptism. he had been baptized and wants all of us to do as he did and be baptized ad well. the resin we baptized new members is so that they can receive the Holy Ghost and so that they can have many blessings from are Heavenly Father and do as he has commanded us to do. it also will help us be able to live with him again.
