Hi I'm Shaneel Burgess

I am Shaneel. And I am from Belize, and have been called to serve in the Dominican Republic Santo Domingo East mission.

About Me

I am from the beautiful country of Belize in Central America. I love to listen to music, have done track, play futbol, basketball and I love being able to sprint. I want to be a doctor, particularly a pediatrician because I love helping little kids. I have 4 sisters and 1 brother and my Mom and step-Dad and a baby niece/nephew on the way. I love being a latter-day saint. I hope others can love the gospel as much as I do.

Why I am a Mormon

When I study and go to church I notice how much closer I get to my Savior Jesus Christ, and all the blessings that come from the Gospel. I love the standards and how they keep us away from the dangers and the sins of the world as long as we are obedient to Gods commandments. I know that through our Savior and our Heavenly Father that we can obtain more happiness than we can ever imagine if we do our part of the plan that they have prepared for us and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping all the commandments that our Heavenly Father has given us and keeping the covenants I have made with Him and always remembering the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ and applying it into my life when I need it. I come from a place where the church is still young but I love coming and helping my fellow friends and members come to know and appreciate it better.
