What is being a Mormon like?

Mele Teuila Halasima
Being a Mormon or in other words member of The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a blessing for my lives. Now I'm a full time missionary and still serving in the Manila Philippines Mission. It is my duty to proclaim the everlasting gospel to all people in order for them to come unto Christ and partake of the blessing that I have receive as a member. I can be able to help them to know how the gospel blesses their lives and show them that families can be together for time and for eternity because this is the center of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am very grateful for a wonderful parents that raise me in the church so that I can be able to have the chance to share the gospel to those who haven't heard of it. I testify that this is the true church of God being restored through Joseph Smith. We have a living prophet who lead us through this last days which is Prophet Thomas S. Monson. I'm so proud to become a member of the church. Show more Show less
