Hi I'm Kaitlin

Born in Bournemouth, Im a convert and I'm going to serve a mission in the England Manchester mission!

About Me

Hey so I'm Kaitlin, I was baptised in 2012 after a year of being incredibly stubborn! My parents were inactive for 20 years until the senior missionaries reactivated them 3 years ago. My eldest brother was baptised 3 years ago and my elder sister was baptised two years ago. The gospel has change my whole family's life for the better!!! Two years later and I am counting down the days until I leave to serve in the England Manchester Mission!!! I have just completed my A-levels and intend to go and study a Business degree after my mission at Kent university.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is true! I didn't want to be taught by the missionaries and for a year I tried my best to argue with the missionaries and demanded them to show me proof! I wouldn't listen to a word they said and did not desire to know whether the gospel was true. After a year of my parents and my brother being in the church I slowly came round to the idea of them going to church but still didn't want to have lessons. But sure enough I met this amazing senior missionary couple who were the perfect teachers for me. Once I desired to know for myself the most amazing things began to happen I began to pray and surely enough my prayers were answered and the feelings felt were so strong that I knew I could no longer deny the truth of this gospel. I know this gospel is true and it has helped my life so much! Don't get me wrong believing in the gospel does not stop bad things from happening to you and life can still be pretty hectic and stressful at times but having Jesus Christ in your life makes it all easier to overcome them, and I honestly do not know where I would be without the gospel in my life. I am a Mormon because I love my saviour.

How I live my faith

In my ward I teach the gospel principles Sunday school class for investigators. It has been such a great blessing has strengthened my testimony to be able to study the basic principles each week and know of the truth and light that this gospel is and to see investigators grow each week and gain their own testimony. Very near future missionary!! I leave to serve my mission on the 20th of November and cannot wait! England Manchester here I come :) I decided to serve a mission because I have a real testimony of missionary work myself, for was it not for the missionaries who taught me I would not know my saviour Jesus Christ and the sacrifice he has made for me and all mankind. I hope just hope that I can do the same!!
