Hi I'm Rebecca Van Zyl

I grew up in South Africa and will be leaving soon to serve a mission in New Zealand.

About Me

I am an active member of my church and have grown spiritually. I wanted to do something more though,something that will help others and serve God. I decided to serve a mission. I love being in nature and enjoy spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because by living its principles a become a better person and more how Jesus would want me to act. I am more kind, tolerant and loving. I am able to forgive easily and love more. It helps me become more Christ like. There is something special about this church-I feel at home among its members. We all serve one another and unite to form a true christian community.Its as if I have a whole new family.

How I live my faith

I visit a few women in my church community every month. I encourage them to draw nearer to God and to live his commandments. I also enjoy giving talks on the congregation on Sundays and teaching others. I also attend a weekly religious class to learn more about our gospel.
