Hi I'm Eva

I'm a missionary serving in Santiago, Chile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of five children. I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Santiago, Chile. After my mission I will return to college where I am studying neuroscience. I love learning everything about the brain and I think it would be interesting to research neurolinguistics. I love both watching and performing musical theater. Stories are best told on a stage. I enjoy doing things outside, especially hiking. I like reading and learning about everything.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my family. My parents are Mormon and I was raised as a member of the church but I stay because I have learned that we are part of a larger family. God is our Heavenly Father. We are literally His children. He loves us. Because He loves us, He restored the gospel which blesses us and our families. Our Heavenly Father reveals the truth to us through the prophet today, just as he did anciently to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and many other prophets. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to be our Savior and Redeemer and to provide a way for us to repent, change, and become like Him so we can return to live with our Heavenly Father and our families for eternity.

How I live my faith

In high school I was the seminary council secretary. Understanding the scriptures through diligent study changes our perspective and our lives. In my student ward at college recently I was the visiting teaching coordinator. I helped assign women in our ward to visit other women once a month. They share a short gospel message and they get to know each other. Everyone had someone to visit and someone to visit them. I was glad when everyone did their visiting teaching because I knew it meant everyone in our ward was not only taught, but had a new friend. As students away from home for the first time, it is comforting to have that support. It's always nice to have someone stop by who will ask how you are doing and is willing to sincerely listen. Now I am going to Santiago, Chile as a missionary. I will dedicate a year and a half to serving people there and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ as a representative of Him.
