Hi I'm Drew Prestwich

God gives you weaknesses for a reason. So you should probably find those out and go to him for help. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 and I have been a mormon my whole life. I love playing sports and love helping people with service. I love this gospel and the blessings it brings.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true and I know the blessings that come from living this gospel. So I was actually born in the Mormon faith but while I was growing up i really didn't like the program. I went to church and read the scriptures because I wanted to please my parents. So therefore the wrong reasons. But then when I got older(18 years old) I became more aware of what I was doing. I finally came to conclusion that I couldn"t do all this for my parents because I'm not going to be a kid forever and I am at that point in my life where I'm going to be making some big choices like college, job, family, and maybe a mission. So one night as I was reading the Book Of Mormon I came across a scripture that hit me pretty hard. (Ether 12:27) So i realized that I have be following Christ for the wrong reasons and that I had so many Weaknesses that I personally wanted to get rid of. So I decided to take it to the big man upstairs and ask him what should I do or are you really there? Afterwards I felt that spirit so strongly that I could never deny it. Over time I started to receive answers and I started to see my weaknesses become stronger. One of those answers was deciding to serve a full-time mission. So why Is Drew Prestwich a Mormon... 2 reasons. 1) Because I know that The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is the Lords church and I have felt his spirit so strongly confirm that to me. And I know that is a very big and bold statement but I highly encourage all of you to ask the Lord himself if what I am saying is true. 2) Because as I have been a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints I have been so happy. This church as brought me so much joy and peace. I am deciding to serve a mission because I really want others to feel what I feel. I want others to experience this joy the gospel brings. It is a tough world but I can promise you that we have the trial and problem fixer you are looking for.

How I live my faith

I show my faith in many ways. I actually decided to serve a mission for the LDS church and to me that is a big faith tester. So let me tell you how I live my faith. I live my Faith every second of every minute of every hour of every day. I live my faith by Action. Daily reading, Daily Praying, and weekly worshiping in the church. As we do those small simple things, then that is when we are showing our faith in Christ. I really don't care what Faith you are part of because we all have the same goal in mind. Jesus said "Be ye perfect as your father in heaven is perfect." For all those that are reading this I can tell you that the LDS church has those ordinances for you to reach that perfection. I also know that if we gain that faith in Jesus Christ then he can help us with our problems and trails in this life. I plead with you all to lean on the atonement of our Lord Jesus Christ. I can promise you all that if you Develop Faith in Christ and lean on his Atonement, then you can conquer any trial in your life.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?
