Hi I'm Romeo

I grew up in St. Lucia. I am a sports fanatic, you name it, I play it. I am a poet. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play sports, especially cricket. When I am not on the field you can find me writing some rhymes for my poems. On St. Lucia there are a lot of fun things to do, so often I am out adventuring around, hiking, biking, just enjoying the country. I have worked in various jobs, the police force, construction, agriculture, etc, since I was a young boy. But I left all those things behind to serve a full-time mission for the church. It has been such a rewarding experience so far and I have been able to see changes in other peoples lives that I was able to see in my own when I joined the church four years ago.

Why I am a Mormon

I have come from a rough background and much of it has been spent on my own. I would have said back then that God didn't play a part in my life. It was after I went through a bad car accident in which my younger brother died and I was left badly injured that I made the decision that there couldn't be a God. It was in this state that I happened upon the missionaries, and eventually they began teaching me about God's plan for us. It took time to accept, but slowly the bitterness I had towards God left. I began to understand the reasons why I had gone through the things in my life. As I allowed God into my life I started to change, I was happier and wanted to share my happiness. I am still continuing to learn but I know now that the gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to change one's outlook on life. I know that He is my Savior and that God has a plan for us.

How I live my faith

When I joined the church my life changed completely. Since then I have been able to give my time to help others to find happiness. This has come through the service that I have given to those within the church and without. I was able to help the missionaries in my home country teach the gospel to those who where just learning about it. I saw the good that these young people were doing as they served their missions and it influenced me to want to go and serve my own. I am now on my mission in England and I'm enjoying every minute of it.
