Hi I'm Raphael

I' m from Germany, I love arts, economics and mathematics and I' m a Mormon.

About Me

I am highly interested in science, politic and economy. By now, I am a missionary, but after I finished it, I want to study public economy at a German university. I love all kinds of arts: be it music, paintings, theater, musical, ballet... I love it all and admire the artists because they have such impressive skills. I am really bad at these arts. I love to read books and all kinds of news. I really read everything and try to learn always new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints because it makes me happy. I cannot proof its truth, but I know that I have found so far joy in the gospel of Jesus Christ and that I will go on finding joy in it. I invite everybody to try of this great joy, and you will find that it will come to you, too, when you allow give it some space in your hearth.

How I live my faith

I used to be a "normal" member before I started my missionary service. I had some callings at church, e.g. assistant to the bishop. That means, I was like a third arm to him, I did the things that he could not do because he was busy with leading the ward. Another way, that I lived my faith every day was attending early morning seminary even before school. That was a wonderful time. I learned much about the gospel of Jesus Christ during that time.
