Hi I'm Emere

Im 19 serving in the Canda Calgary Mission. New Zealand is my home. I love learning about the mind. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 and I am from New Zealand. I am currently serving a mission in Canada, Calgary and I get back in November 2015. I love netball, reading, movies, my home, my culture and learning about people ie Psychology. I want to study psychology when I go home and am really excited for that. I speak fluent Maori and love the German language (I really wish I could speak it fluently as well). I have 3 brothers 1 sister and a sister in law a niece/nephew on the way and 2 loving parents.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a member of the church but as I grew up I started to have second thoughts about the church. But one day I was crying because of a incident that happened in my life and for some reason no matter how I tried I couldn't stop crying. When it got to a point that it started to hurt and I just wanted some relief from this pain I had a thought that maybe I should pray because it seems like that is the only thing I can do right now. So I prayed and asked Heavenly Father if he would take away this pain and let me sleep because I just couldn't stop and I didn't know what to do. As soon as I closed my prayer with Amen all of the hurt and pain I felt was gone and I slept. The next morning I remembered what happened and prayed again and said thank you for helping me. From that point onwards I knew that Heavenly Father cared and that the way he showed me he cared was by giving me this church to live my life by. It was a way that I could strive to be happy even when I make mistakes cause I could repent of the things that I had done and start again and try even harder to never do them again. I want to share my testimony of this church that I know that this is the only true church of God. I know that the Atonement of Christ was the only way that we could get back to Heavenly Father and that it was necessary. I know that without this church I would be still crying maybe not literally but figuratively in my heart for that comfort. I know that there is a plan for all of us and that he wants us to come back to him. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and that he restored Christ church back to the earth. I know these things and many more things to be true in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

As I have said before I am serving a mission for 18 months in Canada. My purpose as I am here on my mission is to bring others unto Christ. It is a big calling but a great one as I have the opportunity to meet so many different people and bring happiness to many who are seeking Heavenly Father.
