Hi I'm Lein Pouwer

I grew up in Houston TX. I'v been called to serve a two year mission in the Belgium/Netherlands Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, My name is Lein. I am 20 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I'm serving a two year mission for my church here, and it's been an amazing experience. My mission has given me a chance to strengthen my testimony in Jesus Christ and my connection with my Heavenly Father. I love the feeling that I get when I help someone learn about their loving Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

People say I'm a Mormon because I was born into the Church. In part this is true, but there is a more important reason. The reason is that I have searched out for myself wether or not this Church is true. Through diligent study of the scriptures and prayer I have come to know that Jesus is the savior of the world and that this is his true church.

How I live my faith

I love the gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ is the most important thing I have in my life. The standards the Church has set has made me who I am today. I've been taught and I believe that I'm a child of my Heavenly Father, and that by following his commandments I can one day live with him again. I live according to my faith because I've found a source of goodeness that never stops giving. It's definitely hard at times to live up to the standards of our Heavenly Father, but it is ALWAYS worth it.
