Why I am a Mormon

My wife and I moved to the state of Idaho. We moved for my job at that time. It was June of l977. The first day while moving into our house, we met the missionaries and a member of the church that was tracting with them. They asked if they could help us move in. We said, "Yes" of course! They also asked if they could come back and talk to us about the Church of Jesus Christ? We again said, "Yes". I had grown up as a Catholic and my wife as a very active Pentecostal. When we married we did so in the Baptist Church because neither side of our families wanted us to marry in each others churches. So you could say we were looking for something for our family. We took the discussion about the church and the experiences that Joseph Smith had. I believed the first time around. It took a bit longer for my wife. She had been active as a young girl and teenager in her church and had a lot of questions about different things, like, the prophet, work for the dead, temple covenants etc. When all the discussions were done we prayed about what we had learned, read a lot, and decided that this was what was right for us. We knew that what we had been taught was true and made so much more sense than what we had grown up knowing. We both felt that Heavenly Father was a loving and kind Father and that Jesus Christ was indeed our Savior and Redeemer. We both desired to be baptized and become members of the church. We were baptized on July 8, l977 in Rupert, Idaho. Our family has been truly blessed ever since we made this decision. We cannot even begin to describe the great love that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for us, and how grateful we are for those wonderful missionaires and members who helped us and supported us throughout the years. We truly have strong testimonies of the gospel and are so grateful for our blessings.
