Hi I'm Brian Moses

I'm an Internal Medicine physician in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. I am married with 5 children. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an internal medicine physician. Aside from my work, I love reading, playing and watching sports (especially team sports), and movies - Star Wars is my favorite! In fact, at Star wars celebration VI in Orlando, Florida, I won the World Star Wars Trivia Championships! I am married, and my beautiful wife, Tamara, and I have 5 children - Avery (13), Jacob (10), Isabella (8), Logan (6), and Meghan (almost 3). We enjoy travelling everywhere, but especially love visiting Walt Disney World.

Why I am a Mormon

Although part of why I am a Mormon is because my parents raised me in my religion, when I went off to university, I had to find out for myself what was important to me. I was trying to decide whether to serve a mission for 2 years, or to continue my education. When I finished my second year of university, I had some free time and decided to really start reading the Book of Mormon - I had read it before, but mostly out of habit rather than because I wanted to. This time, however, it was different. As I read, I was filled with the desire to read more and more. The peace and happiness that filled my soul as I read was a testimony to me of the worth of this great book. This was one of the experiences which have led to my conversion as a Mormon

How I live my faith

My Faith is essential to my life. I am involved in various church callings and activities, but most importantly, I think we need to show our faith by how we live our life each day. Service in particular forms a big part of my life - anything from medical volunteer work to physical labours such as helping people split and pile their wood.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Brian Moses
In the vast majority of cases, missionaries pay their own way to serve missions. Where there is no possibility of the person or their family being able to cover the costs, the Church will assist. In addition, all missionaries, regardless of where they serve, have to pay the same amount. Anything that is needed above that is either from people serving where they don't need as much money, or from church funds. Show more Show less
