Hi I'm Sydney Thompson

I grew up in Las Vegas, NV. I love the Lord. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was in Student Council for 4 years at my high school. I was the Student Body 1st Vice President my senior year. I love being involved with event planning and being part of special organizations. I love working with children! Their sweet spirits brighten my days. I love music; it's therapy for me. I am preparing to serve the Lord in the Washington DC south mission, and couldn't be more excited!

Why I am a Mormon

About 15 years ago, my mom was introduced to the missionaries. She had worked around Mormons and loved the light they carried. My family took lessons with the missionaries and knew the truthfulness of what they taught! I was baptized when I was 8 years old. I consider myself lucky to have basically grown up in the church. I love the gospel and the light and guidance it has brought to my life. I love my Savior and I know that He died for us so that we can return to Him. I know that He knows and loves each of us individually. His plan is greater than any plan we have for ourselves. I am grateful for the missionaries that taught my family years ago. I am so excited to serve as a missionary in Washington DC!

How I live my faith

I love being able to go to church every week and partake of the Sacrament. I attend institute classes every Thursday night and I love it! It's my spiritual "pick me up" during the week. I taught 10 year olds in primary for about a year and had so much fun teaching them! I currently attend the Young Single Adult ward in my area and go to lots of fun activities with them. I begin and end each day with prayer and scripture study.
