Hi I'm Evelyn Morales

I live in Ohio. I will be serving a mission for 18 months in the Costa Rica San Jose Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in the LDS church, I've moved a few times and ended up in Ohio. During my senior year I got my second job and have been working both of them ever since. I knew I wasn't not going to school after I graduated, at least not right after I graduated. it just didn't feel right for me. that's when the age for the female missionaries went down to 19. I turned 19 this past October [2012]. Just a couple days ago in the beginning of december i recieved my mission call. I knew the change for women would change my life, it already has.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in this church. My family was always very active and still is. We attend church every Sunday to grow closer to Christ. I am a Mormon because I know it is the true church. I know who I am, I know God's plan. Everything is so clear in this faith. Which is why I will be serving a mission to share this wonderful gospel with anyone I can. I continue to follow the gospel because it makes me feel good. I know that this church is true, I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and anyone who has read it knows of its truth. I know president Monson is a true living Prophet and he can give is direction in our lives that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ would want us to do. I know by following the Commandments that I can one day live with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday and during the week preparing my lesson I teach during the 3rd/last hour of church. I teach the sunbeams they are 3-4 years old. Teaching them has blessed my life in so many ways. They have the sweetest answers to questions and are so pure. It can be a challenge at times to keep their attention but overall I love them all, they make me so happy and I feel like I have the best calling ever!
