Hi I'm Amanda Garrett

I'm a missionary serving in the Jamaica Kingston Mission. I believe in Christ. I love to laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a future missionary called to serve in the Jamaica Kingston Mission, I enter the Provo MTC on October 8, 2014. I am studying to become an elementary school teacher. I love anything to do with sports. I have played softball, soccer, basketball, swimming, dance and volleyball since I was little. I picked up rugby when I was in high school. My favorite sport is between softball and rugby. I also love anything to do with the ocean. I love the smell, the feel and the life that the ocean brings to me. The ocean is definitely my happy place, which is why Jamaica is the perfect mission for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to have been born into this gospel. Growing up I took the gospel for graunteed. But now, I love this gospel with all of my heart. It is through my personal scripture time and my personal talks with God that I know without a shadow of a doubt that this church is true. I know that God loves me and each one of my spiritual brothers and sisters. The gospel keeps me living a more righteous life. I KNOW that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my everyday actions. I read my scriptures, have personal prayer and I go to church. I think those are the biggest ways you can life your faith. By doing those, you will be able to be better prepared to face temptations as well as answer questions that anyone may ask you.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Amanda Garrett
The purpose of the welfare services that the Church of Jesus Christ of Letter-day Saints provides is to help those in needs. There are many different natural disasters that happen on this Earth and as representatives of the true and righteous church we need to have a program to help those who have been harmed through these natural disasters. Also, there are many rough times in life whether your only financial provider loses his/her job, a spouse dies, etc. We have provided a way for these people to receive financial help to get these brothers and sisters back on their feet.
