Hi I'm Lesedi Monnapula

I am a missionary in the England Birmingham mission and I am from South Africa. I love meeting new people and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love travelling, I haven't done much of that in my life but I plan to do so after my mission. I love doing my hair and nails,it's lots of fun!! I studied business management in University and I would like to hopefully own a business one day. I am interested in learning more about Chess. I am accident prone and have funny stories to tell because of that.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint because of the truthfullness of the Book of Mormon. I have always known about the bible and read it and when I learned about the Book of Mormon from the missionaries, it was a complete new thing to my eyes and to my life. However as I tried to make peace with the idea that there was another testament of Jesus Christ I followed the invitation to pray and ask God if it was really the word of God. God never lies, I prayed and I got my answer. It was one of the most powerful experiences in my life and has brought me a lot of joy and peace in my life. I am so grateful to be a member of this Church. I cannot explain how blessed I've been since joining the church. I not only have the guidance of the scriptures in my life but the guidance of a living prophet and Apostle's. I also have the most undeniable gift , which is the gift of the Holyghost which leads and direct me in my day to day life. I know that prayer works, I know the God is always calling us and unless we pick up the phone and listen. We will be unable to have that closeness with him. He knows and loves us, he wants to help us. I know that i am his daughter and that knowledge changes everything,my present and my future. The gospel means everything to me, I do not think I would be where I am today if it wasn't for all the things I have learned and try to apply in my life.

How I live my faith

One way I live my faith is by volunteering in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saint to serve others and teach them more about my faith and Jesus Christ. I strive to practice and live the teachings of Christ in my life. I try to be an example in all that I do and encourage others to do good. I love scriptures, they bring me so much joy.I learn everyday from them how to be like Christ.
