Hi I'm Abigail Spencer

Hi I'm Abbey, I'm a missionary in the California Anaheim Mission. I'm an avid adventurer and I love horses. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving as a full time missionary in Anaheim, California for 18 months in the Spanish language. I love Spanish and the amazing people I serve! I love to be outdoors whether it be riding my horse, running, skiing, mountain biking, four wheeling, boating, paint balling, country swing dancing, playing sports, and skydiving. I enjoy spending time with my family at our cabin, river tubing and fishing. Ive been around horses and livestock all my life. I love every moment in the saddle, especially Dressage and trail riding. I love all animals and after my mission I will be continuing my education at Utah State University and studying Veterinary Science- emphasis in farm animals.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel, because it makes me happy. I had always grown up in the church and had a family that were great examples. My brother served a two year mission and with him being gone and sharing his experiences with us over email strengthen my testimony of how great the gospel is. The world we live in today is filled with both positive and negative things, the gospel helps you recognize the positive in this world. I know from this gospel that God has a plan for me and He knows me and is mindful of me and my decisions. The gospel provides opportunities such as prayer, where I can talk to my Heavenly Father and thank him for blessings and ask for help and guidance. The Book of Mormon also has stories that I can relate to my life, they give me motivation and strength to overcome hard things. With the gospel I know I can be with my family forever and we can all be happy. The standards of the church keep me happy and focused on the bigger picture of my purpose in life. The gospel is filled with service and I love the feeling of helping anyone of any faith, because every one is God's children and He is mindful of each and everyone of you and loves you.

How I live my faith

I'm a full time Spanish speaking missionary and I love every second of it! This gospel is a message of JOY and I can't help but smile when I share it! At first preaching the gospel on the Spanish language was hard, but I know I couldn't have done without my Savior Jesus Christ! Through his grace and strength I'm able to share the message of the gospel with my brothers and sisters here in Anaheim and I couldn't be happier! I know that when we are happy and always have faith that things will work out. Happiness is key, God has a plan for each of us.
