Hi I'm Elder Camiling

I'm from California. I love to sing, wrestle, and go to the beach. I helped coach wrestling, I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I moved about 10 times and have been to 11 different schools so I've always had to make new friends wherever I go. I like to spend time at the beach swimming and laying in the sand. I wrestled in high school and coach wrestling since I've graduated. I sing whether I'm on my own or in a group, like a choir. After my mission I plan on going to a church college.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the church I still consider myself a convert. Although there were many occasions where I felt that the church was Gods', a few experiences stick out in my mind. One is when my mother and brother were sick. It was Sunday morning and I had no ride to church, my mom was very ill but she got up and took me to church alone, it showed me that her faith was so strong and that she felt that going to church was so important for me that she would take me herself in her condition. Another time is when I myself prayed to know whether or not the Book of Mormon was true after reading it. I knelt down after reading it and asked if it was and felt in my heart through the Holy Spirit that it was. After this revelation I knew that if it was true than everything else in the Church was also true. I've prayed with questions and received answers. Moroni 10:5 " And through the power of the Holy Ghost you may know the truth of ALL things.

How I live my faith

I participate in my ward by being responsible for three families that I'm always in contact with. I work with the missionaries as much as I can and spend a lot of time with the youth. I read the scriptures often and pray daily. I express thanks to God often through prayer. I'm a missionary.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a book which contains the words of prophets comparable to the Bible. The Book of Mormon contains the fullness of the gospel and the Doctrine of Christ. Through prayer you can find out that the Book of Mormon is truly of God. Moroni 10:3-5. Show more Show less
