Hi I'm Stela Idrizi

I love life . I love bringing happiness to others . I am a missionary and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old girl who loves to learn new things and share happiness. I study Law since justice is something really important to me . I love reading , everything about music , walking , hiking , playing beach volleyball and swimming.I love to explore new places and learn new things especially from other people . I think that everybody out there has something to teach me and I am very excited to hear about other people's experiences , hobbies and talents. I have tons of energy and it's a big blessing for me because I can do many things with it. I love to find ways to make other people happy ! Probably because I wasn't happy myself for a part of my life and I know how important it is to give love to others and help them. All in all I love life and am so happy to be able to live every day and do so to the fullest.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because it's only here that I can feel at home and that I can feel closer to God and to my Savior , Jesus Christ . I haven't always been a member of this church. I met the missionaries on the street at the age of 15 and at that time I wasn't very happy . Many bitter events in my early life made had left their marks on me and I was scared , sad and felt like nobody really cared about me. As I learned more about Jesus Christ and His gospel and as I read from the scriptures and prayed I felt so much love . I felt the Savior's love for me and for the first time in my life I felt full . I felt happy and full of energy and excitement about life and I just wanted to share it with others. This gospel has changed my life forever and I know that it is from God . I know that He loves all of His children and that He listens to our prayers . He doesn't want us to be sad and hurt but to come unto Him and have joy in His love. The Book of Mormon has helped me to learn and understand this gospel and draw closer to God and Jesus Christ more than any other book and I know it to be the word of God. I know that as we search diligently to know what is true , God will help us find it and that as we have love and share that love with our fellow beings he will bless us. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he can heal all the pain that we might feel and make us whole. I love Him and because of Him I love life too.

How I live my faith

I am a full time missionary for the church and I love it. I haven't always been a member of this church , but as I learned more about it's beliefs it brought me closer to Jesus Christ and I felt his love so much that my soul was filled with joy. This is why I chose to volunteer as a full time missionary for 18 months . To help other people by helping them find hope , love and happiness in their lives by coming closer to Christ. Every day I look for opportunities to help people and serve those who are in need. I love being a missionary because I can see first hand the happiness and the change that the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings to people's life's and it's amazing!
