Hi I'm Erin Tescher

I love to serve. I love to laugh. I am a missionary for the Lord. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from a little town in Idaho, and I love laughing and being happy! I find the greatest joy in serving those around me, especially serving the Lord on a full-time mission. I really appreciate learning new things, especially about Christ and His gospel. Before my mission, I enjoyed learning about the human body and how it works. I plan on becoming a physician's assistant one day so that I can help people feel good and happy! I love participating in any activities that involve fresh air, especially snowboarding, longboarding, hunting, and basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I haven't been a Mormon my whole life, so the Book of Mormon was something that was new to me. When missionaries told me that there was another testament of Jesus Christ, I was a bit skeptical but I knew that God would tell me what was true and what wasn't. I took the challenge to read the Book of Mormon with real intent, meaning that if God told me it was true, I would act upon that answer. As I prayed and read, I began to feel God's love more and more. His plan became more clear the more I read. I knew that the Book of Mormon is true and I acted upon the answer I received and was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that this is the living church of Christ and that the Book of Mormon is a true and living testament of Him.

How I live my faith

I am taking a year and a half to dedicate my life completely to serving Jesus Christ by talking to everybody about Him and what He has done for us. I strongly believe that the way to live my faith is by helping others feel of the same joy that I have felt as I have come to know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and help them come closer to Him by following His example, and that's what missionaries do! I know that as we serve others around us and try to emulate the example of our Savior everyday, that we will become the people that He knows that we can be.
