Hi I'm Camille

I grew up in Hawai'i. I'm going on a mission to California. I love this gospel. I am grateful for God's love for us. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young adult just trying to make it through college. The future is big and uncertain to me, but I know that if I put my trust in our Heavenly Father that everything will work out. I enjoy long sits on the couch and watching too much TV. I love jobs where I can help people, even if it's just brightening up their day with a smile. It's crazy, but I love customer service jobs because of this. Soon I will be going on a mission, which is scary and awesome!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been touched by the testimonies and lives of others. Growing up, I saw many wonderful examples of people who put their trust in Heavenly Father when trials came upon them. I saw the happiness and gratefulness that they exuded. I wondered if the same happiness was available to me. The Holy Spirit has testified to me that this is the true gospel. I often question the Church -- to me it is only natural to have questions. And I may not agree with every single aspect of the Church. But I have asked of God if this gospel is true. I feel in my heart that this gospel is true. I cannot deny this. If you are wondering if this is the right church, read the Book of Mormon and ask for yourself if it is true. If it is confusing to you, ask the missionaries for help. They have helped me and they can help you too.

How I live my faith

As a youth, I have served as president of three church groups for girls of different ages from 12 up to 17 years old. I have led our girls summer camp as a Youth Camp Leader. As I started going to college, I began attending church with Young Single Adults who were around my age. There I served as Secretary to our women's organization. It was a blast! I got to know all of the new women coming into the area. I helped the organization by doing attendance, making announcements, posting to our Facebook group, and helping the President of the organization with anything she needed. We often went to the houses of women who were not doing well or had been absent from church. I learned a lot about the unconditional love that our church leaders have for others. Growing up in this Church, I have always wanted to serve a mission. I am happy to be able to serve the people of California for 18 months.
