Hi I'm Stockton Welch

I'm a Missionary in the Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission!!

About Me

I like to be involved in lots of things. I enjoy being around people, friends are something I can't live with out. I did marching band through high school and played almost all the wood wind instruments. Including Saxophone, and clarinet. September 2015 I left my home in Farmington Utah, to serve the lord with all of my heart, might, mind and strength. I was called to the Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission. I absolutely love it! My mission for me is all about finding my brothers and sisters that need my help. :D

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I actually have grown up in the church my whole life. I have never seen my life without the Gospel. But what I do know for myself, and what I've come to KNOW about the church. IS that it is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my brother, and that he died on the cross for me, because he loved me. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. Without a doubt in my mind, I know and feel that it is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ. I also know that the bible is true as long as it is translated correctly. I know that familys can be together forever, and WILL if we live according to the gospel. I know that Joseph smith was a prophet called of god to lead and guide his church. I do know that president monson is the true prophet on the earth again today. I know this church is true, and i'm out in Florida to hlep people know that as well! My favorite story from the bible comes from Matthew chapter 13. Peter walks out on to the water and as he is sinking, the scriptures say "immediately" Christ reached down and lifted him from the water. And I know he does the EXACT same thing for all of us when we are struggling to find the truth.

How I live my faith

I guess you say i'm just an average Mormon. I love to serve people, I help when ever I am needed. Every sunday for the past two years, I have gone to visit an elderly sister in our ward. It has been a great experience for me. The biggest thing that I do to show my faith. Is on my Instagram, I created a Mormon account, that is filled with my testimony, and inspirational quotes for all to see. I came up with the name "Mormon_stuff_justforyou" because the "stuff" I post really is inspired, and I try to post for all :) Also being out on my mission i have seen so many people come closer to Jesus Christ. I know that I'm doing the right thing. Just by knocking on a door and praying with people i am able to see the light of christ shine forth in them. One thing that I have developed on my mission is a sense of Urgency for helping people. My favorite thing to do (Although it sounds awful at first) Is pray to find broken down cars. I LOVE helping those people get back on the road, and help assure them that everything will be ok. Meanwhile share the gospel! Usually I get to start a prayer that they will return home safely. I think this is what Christ Would do if he were here.
