Hi I'm Catherine

I am South African. My heritage is Chilean. I'm a Social Work graduate and a Black belt in Taekwon Do. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I completed my Bachelors degree at the University of Pretoria. I hope to one day complete my Masters degree in Family studies, as that is were my passion lies. I love people and the different capacities and strengths which they show. I have always enjoyed sports and just being active. I have practiced Taekwon Do for 12 years and have my 1st Dan Black belt. I also enjoy road running, hiking and gyming. I believe there is beauty in simplicity. I enjoy nature, animals (dog person!), long car drives and quality time with those I love. My family means EVERYTHING to me. We are a small family but tight knit, always looking out for each other. I have been called to serve a mission, and was assigned to labour in the England London Mission as of August 2017.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ. I want to return back to Him and I know that by living the principles of His Church, I can do so. I know that He loves me too, and I can feel so when I reach out to Him in prayer. Doesn't matter what I'm going through, or how hopeless or helpless I feel, He is there. Always. I have felt of His grace and I know that He wants the best for me. And because of this He has guided my ways. I am Mormon because His way is the best way and the one that will always save me from sorrow, and rather bring me everlasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I have the calling of teaching Sunday School to the Youth. Together we learn about about Christ, and how we can return to him. I was previously a teacher in Nursery. I have always been involved in church programmes and service projects and have met many wonderful people through them. I have always strived to share my testimony with those around me, especially about how our Heavenly Father loves each one of us. I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission in London, England.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Catherine
As Mormons, we strive to lift each other's burdens and help others feel the love of our Heavenly Father, who dearly cares for each one of us. This does not only refer to other Mormons, but rather, to all those we are able to reach. We understand and know that we are all Heavenly Father's children and so we will extend a hand to the hungry, the naked, the poor and afflicted regardless of whether they are Mormon.
