Hi I'm Nellie

I grew up in Rotterdam i and live since 1968 in Finland.

About Me

I am a convert to the Church. When I joined the Church in 1962 in Rotterdam I was playing in the Dutch National table tennis team. In 1968 I married a Fin. We have 5 children and 17 grandchildren. I run a little family business. I am selling dollshouses and miniatures and still playing table tennis. Love outdoors e.g. mushroom picking.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church because I believed that the Church of Jesus Christ was restored in 1830. That our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to the boy Joseph Smith. After 51 years of membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I am still thankful for the opportunity I had to become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ. I am thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have worked with young people in the Church for many years. At the moment I I translate or find a translator for people, who visit the Church meetings who don't speak Finnish.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Nellie
We do not worship Joseph Smith the Prophet. We worship God our Eternal Father and the risen Lord Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith we acknowledge as a Prophet. He is an instrument in the hands of our Heavenly Father in restoring the the Church, which Jesus organized when he was living on earth. We respect Joseph Smith but not worship him. Show more Show less
