Hi I'm Quinton Geilman

I love to do Theatre, and Stage Combat! I ride long distance pumping boards. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have 4 siblings. 1 sister and 3 bros, one of which is my twin. My sister and my twin brother love to do theatre and have participated in shows at our schools and at some community theaters. I also love to do stage combat and own stage combat swords of my own. I'm technically the youngest because my twin was born just a few minutes before me. We hang out together all the time and we all love to ride our long distance pumping boards. My sister and I love to sing while my brother likes to be more behind the scenes and run sound equipment such as microphones and speakers. My twin brother is currently serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Oakland/ San Francisco Mission. I am also serving a mission for the Church in the Alpine German Speaking Mission. The gospel of Jesus Christ has blessed me so much that I wish to share it to all the world. I love the German language and the chance I have to share the gospel in it. The teachings of Jesus Christ have influenced my life for the better. I would never be able to be a better man than I currently am without the help and teachings of the Savior and Redeemer of the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by parents who are Mormons, but that is not why I am a Mormon. I am one because I chose to be one. When I was 13, I wanted to know if what my parents and other church leaders were teaching me was true. I didn't know where to began, so I began with reading the Book of Mormon. While I was reading this book, a strange comforting feeling came. I felt an overwhelming need to pray and ask my heavenly father if it was true. When the prayer was over I didn't feel anything. I remembered being taught that sometimes the lord doesn't give us answers right away. I waited for two weeks and had an accident occur. I fell off of a waterfall that was about 15 feet tall. I was certain that I had broken my leg. When I landed I was already being helped by members who were near me including a school teacher of mine. The love that these people showed me and helped me get to the hospital to look after my leg gave me that same feeling that I felt while reading. That is when I knew that God loves me. Because of similar experiences that I find too sacred to even mention, I have learned for myself that the teachings of the Church do in fact come from God, and that God has given us these teachings because he wants us to be happy. if we follow these teachings we will be happier than we ever will be without them regaurdless of how good our lives may seem.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission for the church in The Alpine area of Europe. I am teaching people about this church and the things that we believe and how we truly know what we have is true. I also have helped out in many youth organizations including being a counselor on outings. I try my best to be an example to everyone around me. I try not to lose my temper and even though I fight, I never do it out of anger towards another person. I try to live by example. I really do try to do the things that God wants me to do even when it seems difficult. I know that the things that He has given me in my life have infulenced me for the better. I know that it is important to learn for yourself the truth of Heavenly Father's love. Like many I wish to share the things that the Lord has given me with others and I love to help others to learn more about our Savior Jesus Christ.
