Hi I'm Annabelle

I'm from California, I'm serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Brazil, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Coming from California, I love to play volleyball and go to the beach! I am thrilled to serve my mission in Santa Maria Brazil and to learn Portuguese and I can't wait to share the gospel with others and bring them the happiness it brings me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Lord has restored His gospel to the Earth through the latter day prophet Joseph Smith. I know that Jesus Christ gave His life for me so that through the Atonement be could pay for my sins and allow me to return to my Father in Heaven again. I know that Christ lives today, and that by being faithful to Him and keeping the commandments, we can receive more happiness from this life and the life to come than we have ever dreamed of. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be obedient to the Lord's commandments and living life by following Christ's example.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The Atonement of Jesus Christ was the event that allowed everyone the opportunity to return to live with our Father in Heaven again. Jesus Christ gave His life so that each one of us could be made clean from our sins and exercise repentance. Without the Atonement, this life would lack purpose and we would not be able to progress to the next life. Show more Show less
