An event that shaped my beliefs would definitely have to be serving a 2 year full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I served this mission in Spain. Not knowing anything of spanish when I started went out as a representative of my church. I have spoken to so many people about their beliefs and tried to explain ours. We were sent with a purpose to invite everyone to come unto Christ. There are some way amazing people there and I made some way good friends that I’m still in contact with. During these 2 years, I was able to see how life is in other parts of the world greatly opened my eyes to a greater understanding of what I knew and know to be true.
