My name is Sydney Mower. I’ve been called to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I’ll be serving in the Philippines, Cebu mission, speaking the Cebuano language for 18 months.
Before I get out in the field, I want everyone to know why I’m doing this.
I believe with my whole heart that we all have a loving Father in Heaven. I believe that He has created a plan of happiness that allows us to return to Him and become like Him. He’s a merciful, kind, and all-knowing being that loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to Earth to save us from our sins if we follow Him and try our very hardest to be like Him. When we inevitably mess up, He will cover our sins through repentance and the use of His Atonement. I believe that through God’s plan of happiness and Christ’s Atonement, we can not only live again with our Heavenly Father, but live forever with our entire family. I’m going to the Philippines to share this good news with the people there. Hopefully I will be able to show just a few people the same joy this gospel has given me.
Thank you for your support and love. I hope you enjoy the blog!
