Hi I'm Samuel

About Me

I am a life long member of the church! I am a forensic psychologist working out of Colombia, South America. Single. Love the outdoors, love music, love helping and serving others.

Why I am a Mormon

At first, because my parents joined the church shortly before I was born. So it has been a part of my life since childhood,later in life came very defining moments, when I had to question my beliefs and find out for myself if there is truth to the doctrine behind mormonism. To do so it became imperative to read the Book of Mormon, to compare it with the bible, to go to church and view all their programs objectively and draw my own conclusions. The result has been a sure knowledge of the truth to all things LDS. Thru the still, small voice of the spirit of the Lord, I have come to know that I am a Mormon because being a Mormon is exactly what Heavenly Father wants me to be. I am a Mormon because I have recieved personal, life changing confirmation that Joseph Smith really did see God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ on a morning in the spring of 1820. I am a Mormon because on top of all this, I see the many blessings and ways in which God has touched my life. I am a Mormon and I am grateful, eternally grateful for the love and happiness that the Teachings of Christ have brought to my life.

How I live my faith

I serve...thats how i live my faith. Whatever assingment the church gives me, I try to fulfill with all my heart. The greatest joys in my life have come from serving others. Currently I work with the Youth of Bogota, Colombia, and I have never been blessed as much as I have been since I started serving them.

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

The church is a meetinghouse for members and investigators wanting to come and learn more of the Lord. It is a place where, on any given Sunday, the teachings of Christ can be learned and assimilated by all those wishing to do so. The Temple is the House of The Lord, and, like in ancient times, access to and worship in his House is limited to those people who have manifested a desire to follow him by willingly making convenants, or promises with him. Such convenants include baptism by immersion, the laying on of hands for the reception of the Holy Ghost, and the keeping of and adherence to the commandments as set forth by the Lord. Only those who do these things are able to enter into the House of the Lord. As a result it is not open to all, but available to any willing to enter in and follow thru with these covenants....

The Lord, thru divine revelation. Beginning with patterns set forth during the early years of the church, the Lord has revealed the process by which a Prophet is chosen. Show more Show less
