Hi I'm Thomas

I'm the youngest of nine. I spent some of my childhood living in Europe. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Albuquerque, Mew Mexico and moved to France when I was just six years old. I've been called to the Lisbon, Portugal mission to serve a two years for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love playing basketball and rugby. I'm the youngest of nine children, which can have its perks. I was an uncle when I was only 6 years old. I love unique food from diverse places and trying something new. I play the piano and guitar. I love to work and serve others.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but in a way I was still converted. The people that are a part of this religion seem to stand out from others. They extend a helping hand when needed, they aide the community, they obey the law, avoid from drinking or doing drugs, and provide a good example for others. Among worshiping God, we also look for ways we can help other people and better our own lives. We try to stay morally clean, as well as physically clean in the matter of keeping our bodies healthy. I know our Heavenly Father loves us and knows us individually. I know that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world, that we may be able to repent and live with our Heavenly Father in heaven. I know that families are forever. I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet, that he translated the Book of Mormon and restored the gospel and priesthood to the earth. I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father love us unconditionally even if we make mistakes.

How I live my faith

I love to serve the community. In my church I've been called as the pianist for the young men. I hometeach two families in our ward which involves helping them with anything that they need, sharing gospel messages, and visiting with them.
