Hi I'm Anneke Baldwin

I love animals, drawing and traveling. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a sister missionary in the Oklahoma, Oklahoma City mission, and I am absolutely loving it out here, serving the people of Oklahoma!

Why I am a Mormon

It has taken many years and much questioning, but I found my faith through prayer, study and experimenting on what I learned. I know that God lives! His Son died to save us from our own sin and unhappiness. He can alleviate our sorrows and our pains if we we can learn to rely on Him. It is a comfort and joy to know that this life will not be the end, and we have the opportunity to be with our loved ones forever after we pass from this world. Heavenly Father has a great and merciful plan for this earth and everyone in it, and it is my joy to learn of it through the Book of Mormon, the Bible and modern revelation. Modern revelation comes from a prophet who receives revelation from God today, just as He revealed truths in ancient times. God lives and He loves us!

How I live my faith

I try to live with a constant prayer of gratitude in my heart. Heavenly Father has given us such a beautiful world and he has given such peace and happiness to me as well as so many others in this world. He offers this peace and love to everyone, no matter who or what they are! Happiness is always to be found, so it is we who must learn about His truth, his Gospel, and accept it into our lives to allow ourselves to open up to His love.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?
