Hi I'm Noah

I'm from Colorado, going to school at BYU-Id. to teach, a missionary in the great Texas McAllen Mission! and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 21 years old and finishing up my mission in Texas, McAllen! I've been so blessed to have spent almost two years of my life in south Texas sharing my love and testimony of the true and restored Gospel of Jesus Christ! there is nothing that gives me more joy than that! I have an amazing family that supports me and has always been there for me, all 9 of them, and 15 nieces and nephews! (three of which I'm looking forward to meeting for the first time in two months!) I've grown to love Mexican food, and it's spent the last two years growing on me! I love to laugh and make people laugh! There really is no greater joy than sharing the Gospel with the world!

Why I am a Mormon

I am I Mormon because I have gone through the work and the effort to do so... and yes gaining a testimony is very much work. I spent many years reading and re-reading the Book of Mormon, each time praying about its truthfulness, and each time getting a stronger testimony that it is in fact another word of God, and a testament of Jesus Christ. I know Christ better than I ever had before I read this book. Once I knew this book was true I knew that God still has prophets on the Earth today, just like he did in ancient days! I know these things by the personal confirmation that comes from the Spirit that I have received and I know that everyone can receive the same confirmation if they seek it!

How I live my faith

I currently do not have a calling (responsibility) in my home ward, but at my college ward I was the Sunday School President, this meant I was in charge of assigning who was teaching what lesson when for Sunday School each week! it was very hard work, but very fulfilling. I am about to be set apart as a missionary, and become a full time missionary for the next two years! This will be an opportunity to make the world a better place, and invite others to come closer to Christ, if I can is some small way bring someone closer to their Heavenly Father, that will be enough for me! I will teach and serve all those that I can find!
