Hi I'm Lee Puckrin

I am from Northern Ireland. I love football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Northern Ireland and have lived there my whole life. While at school I played various sports including field hockey and football, watching and playing football are two of my favourite things to do in my free time. I am currently serving a two year mission in Greece for the Church and I have the wonderful opportunity to learn the Greek language. I love all of the Star Wars movies and have loved them since I was a little child!! My favourite football team is Middlesbrough F.C.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member my whole life. My Grandparents met with the missionaries many years ago and gained their own testimonies of the truthfulness of the gospel and eventually joined the church. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints not because my parents forced me to do it but because I want to be a member. The happiness and peace that comes with living the Gospel is indescribable and I would never want to give up these feelings for anything. I have prayed to God about the truthfulness Book of Mormon and I know that it is the word of God, I know that God lives and that Jesus Christ lives also. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ was restored by Joseph Smith and that because of him we have the true Church upon the earth, I know that Jesus Christ Atoned not only for my sins but also for the sins of the world. Having this knowledge helps me to get through the challenges of life and I do not know where I would be without it.

How I live my faith

Every single day I try to be a little bit more like My Saviour Jesus Christ, I try to live my life the way he would. As a missionary I have the opportunity to serve so many people every day no matter who they are and being able to do that service brings so much joy into my life. By studying the scriptures and saying my prayers I feel the love of Jesus Christ on a daily basis, helping me to know that he is always close to me and interested in my life. I follow the example of Jesus Christ because I want to not because I am forced to.
