Hi I'm Michael Wilson

I love to play basketball, I'm 18 years old, I am a Missionary in the Natal Brazil mission 13-15, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My Name is Michael Wilson. I am a recent graduate of high school. I'm currently serving a mission in Brazil 2013-15. I play Basketball its my favorite sport. I played football and basketball throughout high school. I love my savior Jesus Cristo and I love to hangout with my family and my friends. I want to chose a career as a Police Officer. That's what I'm thinking of after my mission and of course after I come home from college. I'm a convert for about 4 years now 6 when I get home. I was introduced by the missionaries and taught the gospel through them and now I'm a missionary. They knocked on my door and with my moms permission I let them in. :D I was the only one to show interest and that sat down to listen to the Elders. Soon after I was baptized and was the only one out of my family to do so. A few years later I got to baptize my little sister Krystal into the church and it was amazing. Her and I are still the only members in our family but I have hope that one day the rest will join. I love this church and I know that it is true. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Wow its a interesting question. I'm a Mormon because I believe in the principles that the gospel teaches. I know them to be true. I'm a Mormon because it brings noting but happiness to my life. I know that this church is the true church of our savior Jesus Christ. And it draws me nearer to Heavenly Father and I have never felt his love more then when I became a member of his restored gospel. I know my Pai Celestrial is well pleased with my decision to join his church. And as I have lived the gospel, my relationship with my Father in Heaven has grown into something undecidable. And that's why I'm a Mormon. For the peace and joy it brings to my life. And that one day I can raise a family and know that the gospel will bless my family as I know now that this gospel can bless families forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a disciple of Christ. As a convert of the church I have grown a love for my fellow brothers and sisters. And as the scriptures say when you're in the service of your fellow men you're in the service of God. I live my faith in my everyday actions and my sayings. As a convert I can really see the difference between now and as not a member of the church. That's how I live my faith as a member of the church and of my testimony of Jesus Christ. I know he lives and loves me. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true and restored gospel and church on earth today.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries share a message about Jesus Christ and His Atonement for all people. They teach about our Heavenly Father’s great plan of salvation, which allows all people the opportunity to return to Him. They can teach you many truths of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
