Hi I'm Chelisa

I grew up in the US. I enjoy learning languages, singing, dancing, making friends, and treating people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am on an LDS (Mormon) mission serving the people of Germany. I have finished a year and a half of college. I'm from a generally-considered large family with six siblings. I like reading, learning languages, making friends, eating, travelling, and learning about the Savior. In high school I was in several groups and clubs including the marching band as a color guard member, an all-girls performing choir, German club, and others. I always try to find ways to help others or make them happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in the teachings recorded in the scriptures, both the Bible and Book of Mormon, and if they are true then I have come to learn that this religion must be true, and if it be true then it will do me good to learn about them as much as I can. My family are Mormons and so I grew up learning these teachings and they have provided me with much hope and light that I has helped me so much in life. I wouldn't be where I'm at without the hope Christ's gospel has given me. Christ was someone who helped people, no matter how He was treated and that's what I've aspired to do and that is in accordance with what I have found is taught -- to follow Christ, be a good example, and be a good person. I know that I am a child of God, and that He loves and cares about me and every single other one of his children and we are all His children. I know that families are meant to be eternal and that is what I strive for, and that is a truth I am privileged to be able to share with my friends and acquaintances and as I leave on my mission. I know these things to be true, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I am currently on a mission. I was in a Young Single Adult Ward (a collective group meeting at a specific time for our church meetings) for my area, before leaving. I created a paper program for those in my ward and who visit it letting people know what events will be happening in the near future and how the meetings will go for each specific Sunday. I also sometimes was able to meet with some members from that ward to go visit people who live in our area inviting them to fun activities we all participate in as well as inviting them to our meetings. We would also sometimes meet to help with service projects around our community.
