Hi I'm Francis

Serving a 24 month mission in the Melbourne, Australia Mission.

About Me

I love skateboarding, adventuring outdoors, hiking, mountain biking , and looking for waterfalls. All of that is on hold, because above all else, the Lord comes first in my life. I'm serving a 24 month mission in Melbourne, Australia.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter-days saints by loving parents who did their best. But there came a time in my life where I had to find out if what I had been raised in was really true. I stumbled along the way, not making the best choices in life. I then decided to find out if the church was true. By reading the Book of Mormon... And praying with real intent, and having a desire to know if it was. I received an answer, this answer came through a feeling of peace, a burning within my chest first, then to the rest of my body. This made me feel like I wanted to do good always! This is what we feel when we feel "The Spirit" confirm truth to us. I know that if you want to really find out for yourself, put all doubts and fears aside that you have and have a desire to find out by reading The Book of Mormon and pray to God, who is our Father in Heaven. I can promise you if you do this, you will receive an answer, and your life will be blessed as mine has.

How I live my faith

I have one of the best responsibilities at church in the North Perth area to organise activities for youth ages 15-18! Our committee plan these activities and have them once a month. At the beginning of each activity we start with a hymn and prayer, a lesson on how we can improve things in our lives, not being judgemental, hypocritical, and how to lift each other up, to be more like Jesus Christ. It's awesome to see everyone there, meeting new friends, in with people who have the same values having a great time! We film the night and create a movie so the youth can look back at these unforgettable memories. Helping the youth stay strong in what we know to be true, especially in a world today where there's little value and morale, helps me feel like I'm doing something worth while.
