Hi I'm Sydnee Christensen

I am a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Portugal Porto Mission.

About Me

I am from Las Vegas, Nevada, where I grew up with an amazing family and friends. I enjoy doing things I have never done before. I have made it a goal of mine to take all the opportunities I have been given no matter what form. I attended college in Utah and loved how beautiful it was. I love sports and have tried out what seems to be every single one and some how I love them all. I have been called to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the people of Portugal and love every minute that I get to learn about my Savior and help others come closer to Him. The decision to serve a mission is the best decision I have ever made

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen the light the gospel of Jesus Christ brings into my life and the life of others. I am a Mormon because it has given me the knowledge that I have a Savior that died for my sins so that I can become like my Heavenly Father. There have been so many times in my life that have made me keenly aware that I have a Heavenly Father and Mother that loves me because of what I have learned and been taught in this church. If there is anything I could convey to those reading this post is that there is a plan for you. You are a child of God and He loves you. I am a Mormon because I know with a surety that this is true. I am a Mormon because I can not deny the Spirit I have felt testifying to me that this gospel is true. I am a Mormon so I can work to bring the truth to those around me. I am a Mormon because I have seen the light of Christ and cannot deny it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through regular church attendance, reading the scriptures, including the Bible and the Book of Mormon, daily, by talking to my Heavenly Father everyday through prayer, by being a leader in the church's woman's group, and by dedicating a year and a half of my life to share the knowledge I have about Jesus Christ, his prophets, and his church that is on the earth today.
