Hi I'm Hannah Sharp

I'm from Virginia. I am serving the Lord as a missionary in Hong Kong. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love running and traveling. I am currently a student at Brigham Young University. I am studying anthropology and French. I hope to go into museum studies one day. However, that will not happen for a while because I am also going on a mission. I am going to the China Hong Kong mission speaking Mandarin. This mission is perfect for me because I have two siblings who are adopted from China.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are Mormon and so I too was raised Mormon. However, there came a point when I needed to decide for myself whether I wanted to continue being a member of His church or not. I decided that I do believe in this church. I have read the Book of Mormon several times and I know that it is true. My mother joined the church when she was 19 years old. Her testimony of the gospel really strengthens me. She did not grow up with the same teaching that I did, however, when the church was introduced to her, she found it to be true. She has always been a great example to me. Both of my parents have always encouraged me to do my best. I have two younger, adopted siblings from China. The process of adopting them really helped to build my faith. I know that Heavenly Father wanted them to be a part of my family. It does not matter that they were born on the other side of the world. They were meant to be a part of my family and thanks to the gospel of Jesus Christ they can be a part of my family forever. When I was younger I always wanted to go on a mission. As the time came closer for me to truly decide I had to know for myself that the church was true. I decided that it was and have since prepared for and am now leaving for my mission to China Hong Kong. I hope that I can help other people know about this church and bring families together forever.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by going on a mission for the church. I have been called to the China Hong Kong mission. I am super excited to learn mandarin and teach the people of Hong Kong all about the Lord and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
