Hi I'm miles

i was born in Idaho. raised in California. I'm serving a mission in Lubbock Texas. I'm Mormon

About Me

IM A MISSIONARY AND I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

i was born in this church and was raised in a very active environment. but there came a point when i needed to know for myself about the church rather than just taking my parents word for it. so when i was fourteen my bishop challenged me to read the book of Mormon before i turned sixteen. about three months before i turned sixteen i rushed to read the book of Mormon and only after spending every night for three months did i gain a spiritual confirmation of what i had been told all my life. i got this feeling of overwhelming love and things in my life started to just fit together. i know that the love love and joy we are all searching for in this life can only come from our heavenly father. that is why i am now preparing to serve a full time mission (two years) so that i can share and try to bring this joy to other people and families.

How I live my faith

I love to go visit members of the church and assist them with anything i can. i am an eagle scout and i help to organize the youth and go on activities with them. i love to serve others it gives me the greatest feeling in the world.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

miles
we believe baptism is essential to eternal life. we believe that though baptism by immersion we make promises to our heavenly father. we promise to take his name upon us. which just means that we are now members of his church and to just set an example to those around us. we also promise to keep his commandments. so like the ten commandments and also the guidance of the modern prophets. in return god promises us that we may have the gift of the holy ghost to be our constant companion. that means we have the spirit of the lord to help guide us and protect us so long as we are keeping our promise.
