Hi I'm Thomas

I grew up in utah. I love to play sports, soccer especially. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love chicken! especially when its in my stomach! i love food everything about it, how it smells, how it looks, and how it tastes. I enjoy cooking very much. I am very active, with all the food that i eat i need to make sure that I'm in tip top shape or else i would probably die. I really enjoy playing sports any sport. football, baseball, kick ball, basketball, but out of all the sports soccer is by far my favorite!! I've been playing soccer since i was a little lad. No matter how bad the day is or whats going on in my life soccer can always put me back on track. Everyone in my family plays soccer, anytime we get together you better belive were going to be playing with a soccer ball at some point. I really enjoy drawing and just using my imagination to create stuff. One of my favorite things to do is draw with my nephew and make things with him. We both love our music, you get my nephew and me in a room with just some random materials an ipod and some speakers leave us for a few hours then come back, yeah that room won't look the same at all. Along with hanging out with my nephew i also love hanging out with my niece, she also loves to draw, but on everything but paper. We love to draw with chalk, it's a blast, her drawings are much better than mine. She's also a big fan of tea parties, which i don't mind as long as theres doritos. I love hanging out with friends anytime, afternoon, or in the middle of the night i'm pretty game to do just about anything with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am i member of the church because i know with out a doubt that the Book Of Mormon is true!! I came to this understanding and testimony through prayer. Just like it says in the introduction of the Book Of Mormon, I went and read the book, then thought about the messages contained in it, then prayed to know if it is true or not. When i went and said a prayer to know if the Book of Mormon was true, I received my answer through the power of the Holy Ghost. Just like in the scripture Moroni 10:5 " And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things." This is how i gained my testimony, through the power of the Holy Ghost. The power and conviction the Holy Ghost can bring is incredible. Because of this testimony I am on a mission and will continue to serve our Heavenly Father for the rest of my life.

How I live my faith

Right now I am a missionary in Taiwan!! and i love it!! Everyday I wake up study the book of Mormon, have companionship study, language study, and then i get to go out for the whole day teaching this amazing gospel to the people of Taiwan. I am blessed to go out and do this everyday for the next two years of my life, pretty awesome right!! As a new missionary trying to learn Chinese and at the same time trying to teach in Chinese, at time's it can be difficult. In those times of frustration, i just say a prayer that I may understand whats going on and that I may be able testify and help my companion. That's when the words come to my mind and i'm able to understand everything that's being said. During those times is when I realize how powerful and loving our Heavenly Father is. In the MTC being bearly able to bare my testimony in Chinese, to suddenly testifying and teaching lessons. That in itself is incredible to me on how much our Heavenly Father is helping me and how much he wants me to succeed as a missionary. I would not be able to do this work with out his help.
