Hi I'm Tim

I grew up in Geelong, Victoria, Australia. I'm currently serving a full-time mission in Western Australia. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently serving a full time mission. I'm serving in the Australia Perth Mission. I like long walks on the beach, poetry and staring at paintings. Nah just kidding. I like most sports especially tennis, soccer and handball. I like being stupid, laughing and playing videogames.

Why I am a Mormon

Similiar story to most people who were raised in the church. People in fast and testimony were saying how they know the church is true and they read the book of mormon and got an answer just after they read Moroni 10:3-5 then prayed. I always knew there was God since he would always answer my prayers. So i hungered to know if the church i was raised up in was true and so i wouldn't be wasting my time. Before that i was listening to a talk in church by a missionary. He told the congregation that he was playing a baseball game and it was really close so he prayed to God that if he would allow his team to win he would read his scriptures every day. Miracously his team won so he kept his promise. On the radio i was listening to a cricket game with Australia versing New Zealand. It was a real close game and i really wanted Australia to win. Everytime Australia always struggled against New Zealand in this one day series. So i prayed to God that if he let Australia win, i would read my scriptures everyday. Miracously Australia won in a really close game. I started with reading the old testament everyday but it was really understand especially reading all the laws of moses rituals. So i decided to read a chapter from The Book Of Mormon everyday. I would always ask God after every chapter if the church was true and no answer. I even tried it after Moroni 10: 3-5 and no answer. At a youth convention called EFY (everything for youth). On the third day i got my answer. It was the most powerful and most spiritual moment in my life. I always recgonised the holy ghost as that warm powerful feeling in my heart wheneever i would hear a church talk or read my scriptures. But this like that times a thousand. I can't remember a single thing the talker said but i still remember that feeling. I expected to get my answer After i read the book of mormon but it came at a later time. It was an answer to my prayer. Lots of people felt it in the room they even had tears.
