Hi I'm Emerson Thompson

I'm 19 years old. I'm preparing to serve a full-time mission in the France, Lyon Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old and I graduated from high school a year ago. I always loved playing sports and hanging out with friends. I'm so excited that I have the opportunity to serve a full time mission in France. I love history and golf.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love the way I feel when I go to church and read the Book of Mormon. I love the way everyone at church treats me like a close family member and I know they would do anything for me. I know that my life has been blessed because I've been a part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am always more happy when I am following the commandments and living the teachings of the church.

How I live my faith

I am in the YSA branch in my stake and I LOVE it. I am a Branch Missionary and I teach other young men my age during church for one hour. I am also a home teacher to a few people in the YSA branch and my home teaching companion and I visit them once a month to see how they are doing and to invite them to activities.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Emerson Thompson
We believe that we should be baptized by immersion which means our entire body is immersed in water in the same way Jesus was baptized. Show more Show less
