Hi I'm Daniel

I was born in Germany and currently serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the UK.

About Me

Hey! My name is Daniel and I`m 19 years old. I finished grammar school earlier this year. I love playing frisbee and spending time with friends! One of my favorite things to do is spending time in the kitchen. Not only to eat - but mainly to cook & bake! I always loved to organize things and had some opportunities for that in school! I think it is important to participate in the community and because of that I serve a mission for 2 years in the UK.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to follow Christ. How could I do that better than by being a member of his church? How do I know that this is his church? Well, there are obviously many churches and different believes in this world. They all teach different things. For me that makes it quit confusing and difficult to find "the only true" church. I knew that God is there and that he has not many but just one way and plan he has prepared for us in this life. If we make the effort to start looking for this truth, he can and I know that he will help us. I made this effort to live the principles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to see whether I would get this answer from got - and I did! The Spirit testified to me that the fullness of the Gospel is only found in this church, that we have a living prophet and the Priesthood-authority, which is given by God to bless and help us in this live to prepare to meet God one day. If you ever wonder how you could have this knowledge for yourself - start doing things! Read the scriptures (especially the Book of Mormon) and ponder their message in your heart. Than Pray to your Heavenly Father and ask him whether these things are true. Be patient and try your best to live the principles taught in the scriptures. I can promise you that as you do that, you will receive answers to your prayers. You will recognize how there will be change for the good in your life. I have experienced that in my life. I had the privilege to see how other people changed and I am confident to say that you can have these changes and blessing as well. God loves every single one of us and wants only the best for us.

How I live my faith

I try to be an good example to friends and others around me. I played piano for the little children for some time and visited friends and members of the ward to help and strengthen them. Right now I serve as a fulltime-missionary in the England, London South - Mission. I have the privilege to give two years of my life to the Lord and his work. As a missionary our whole life is focused on helping others to find true joy in their lives. This joy comes through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We help where we can and that makes me feel better than anything else in this life so far.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Because it is scripture, given by God to his prophets. Both, the Bible and the Book of Mormon testify of Christ and help us to understand the Plan that God has prepared for us. Show more Show less
