Hi I'm Jamie

I grew up in Melbourne, Victoria Australia. I live in the U.S.A. I am serving a mission. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a missionary, that is all i do. I love to sing, I love Football, and playing all kinds of sports. I have done a semester of community College at Cerro Coso. I have been in 3 musicals Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat, and Mulan. I had so much fun doing them all. I have the lightning for other shows which was fun as well.

Why I am a Mormon

After my Dad passed away I was hurt and my mum left my brother and I with my aunt as she went to America. My mum and her family growing up were baptized, but none of them remained active, except for the aunt we were going to live with. We lived there for a year and went to church and to the youth activities, i was 12-13 at the time. I really enjoyed it, then late in the year of 2004 My brother and I started taking the lessons with the missionaries. They shared the plan of Salvation with us and I hung onto every word they said, Believing that i will see my dad again, it gave me such great joy. When the missionaries shared the first vision with me I remember that the spirit so powerful in the room, there was no doubt in my mind that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ called Joseph Smith to be a prophet. I knew at that time that the Church was true. When i was about 16 I Developed depression over many times, just built up over time, I didn't want to do anything with the church, I still knew it was true, but I made some bad decision which eventually lead me away from the Church. About 5 years later I was at a point in my life where I was about to be kicked out of where I was living, and that I felt that i had no where to turn to, my brother said "what if i get the missionaries to come out and visit you?" I said "sure." not really thinking it would help at all. I kept meeting with them and started going to church again, I moved out of where I was living, I was able to find a great Job, and I was able to overcome the addictions that I had with the help Of Jesus Christ and his Atonement. about a year after that i decided to serve a mission, and here I am now! I know that everything in my life happened for a reason, and I am out here because I know what it is like to not have the Gospel in my life, and I want everyone to have it in there. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ, that it is truly inspired and written by Prophets. I know this!

How I live my faith

Well right now I am a missionary, but before I came out n my mission. I taught the 8-11 year old boys for Sunday School; I loved it. I visited families in my ward who needed some visiting or help, and others I would check up on. It was a lot of fun and I developed great friendships.

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Yes, in the book of 3rd Nephi, Jesus Christ, a resurrected being appeared to the Nephites. Jesus Christ healed their Sick and taught them His Gospel and set 12 apostle to teach. Show more Show less
