Hi I'm Hermana Sydney Gurley

I am stoked to serve an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico City!!

About Me

I'm 20 years old, and I live in the United States. I graduated from my university earlier this year with a Bachelor's in English. I love to read and write, as most English majors do, but I also love the great outdoors. I am an adrenaline junkie; I love to swim, kayak, mountain bike, hike, camp,...anything and everything that gets me outside and fully immersed into this beautiful, natural world. I play the piano, and I love to play and listen to all types of music. I love to travel; my most recent trip was to Cusco, Peru. I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list - Susan Sontag. I am leaving the United States this fall to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico City!! I am so eternally grateful to my Father in Heaven who has bestowed so many blessings upon me in my life. I cannot wait to head to Mexico to share a message of love and hope to anyone and everyone I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because it is the most powerful, important, and incredibly wonderful aspect of my life. I know that God has a plan for me, as he does everyone. I am comforted knowing that I can be with my family forever. Being a member of the Mormon Church brings so much happiness and peace to my life. Some may scoff at guidelines that we have for our lifestyle (no alcohol, tobacco, premarital sex, etc.) but I have seen the incredible blessings in my life that have come as a result of personally following these standards. I live a healthy, happy life,...worry free! I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. I know that my Savior died for my sins. I know that through Christ's gospel, I can be with my family forever. This knowledge brings me such happiness!!

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith by serving an 18 month mission for the Lord in Mexico City. I love that I have the opportunity to share my beliefs with the people of Mexico!
