Hi I'm Racheal

I am a convert of nearly 3 years who has lived in England all my life, I care for children. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am studying Childcare and Education as this is my passion and I have wanted to be a teacher ever since reception when I decided that I wanted to be like my teacher. I am a convert and there is only me and my sister who are members of the church within my family. I have since introduced a friend to the church who has been baptised.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i never believed in a God or any religion, I just couldn't believe what religions said and then as a favour to my friend i was nice to the Sister Missionaries who asked to tech me. As I listened to my lessons from the Missionaries I knew what they were saying was right and true. I knew that they had the true spirit and that they were telling me the true gospel. The gospel made me incredibly happy and brought a light and warmth to my life. It taught me discipline and helped me continue through my life making the right choices.

How I live my faith

I like to make sure that I keep my testimony bright and on show for others. I believe that this is the best way to help those around me whether they are struggling with their faith or investigating the church. I enjoy going to the Wards many extra activities such as youth meetings and football.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Racheal
No not all Mormons are required to serve a mission, in fact no-one is required to go on a mission by the church. It isn't a necessary part of being a member. However serving a mission and performing The Lords work may be something that an individual feels is necessary for them personally. A mission is a very personal and important thing, it is a time of true closeness to The Lord if you allow it to be. There is a big tradition of going on missions and so a lot of people consider them, especially since the age you can leave to go on one was lowered to 18 for boys and 19 for girls. Hope that helps :) Show more Show less
