Hi I'm Tivon

I was born in Germany. I moved to Canada at the age of 12. I have been called to the Canada Calgary Mission Sep 25, 2013

About Me

I am a Missionary in Progress. I report on September of 2013 at age 18. I just graduated a successful year of High school with multiple awards and a construction scholarship. I love to play sports and have represented my school at Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Handball, Rugby and Track and field. I love nature and have enjoyed every young men's camp that I have been on. My family means the world to me and I will give anything to be happy and united with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church and have enjoyed a testimony of my Savior since I was young. While in my teens Satan worked hard to bring me down. There was one instance when he almost made me believe that I didn't have a testimony. At that moment I remembered what I had learned earlier that I had to increase my study of the Book of Mormon and ask my Father in Heaven to help me regain my testimony. Even though I did not understand at first I increased my scripture study and only with the help of a wise friend of mine whom I told of my struggle,was I able to overcome my doubts. God send her in answer to my prayer and she told me to read Alma 5:45-49. As I did so, I was overcome by the spirit and I remembered of the many times I had felt the spirit. I knew that Christ was there for me, but I had let Satan influence me. A couple of days later I came over the scripture in D&C 6:22-23 which reminds us to remember the many times God has answered our prayers and come to bring peace to our soul. I realized that I had often felt the spirit, but in my moment of need I had forgotten of the greatest wittness. Now in my life there is no more way back. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God and that Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet of these later days at this time. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ is the true Church. I know this to be true.

How I live my faith

I work on following the promptings of the spirit. I can't say that I am always successful, but I feel very blessed when I can be an answer to someone's prayer. I have been a leader on multiple occasions and continually work on setting a good example to my friends and my family. As a young man I try to share the gospel with my friends, but I have realized that the best way I can do that is by the way that I live my life. I know that as we strive to be like Christ, that he will be there with us.
