My name is Thomas and I am doing an international internship in Salt Lake City, Utah, working in the student ministry of Cru (Agapé UK’s counterpart in the US).
I’ve been here in Utah for just under a year and I have learned so much about the spiritual landscape of Salt lake City and the students here. The University of Utah is where our team is currently serving. There are currently over 25,000 students that call the U their home. Back in the UK i was involved with Agapé UK as a student whilst attending Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.
During my time as a student I started to look for ways to find out more about Jesus, initially having connected with the Mormon missionaries in Cambridge I started to attend my local protestant church. There I met some of the Agapé UK staff who, along with my local church, helped me understand who Jesus really is. They really helped me grow my faith and taught me different ways to share the Gospel on my campus.
Since becoming a christian, God has given me the desire to help share the Gospel with Mormons (members of the Church of jesus christ of Latter-day Saints). I started to explore the ways I could do that. Thats when I was informed that Cru has a student team serving in Salt Lake City, Utah. A lot of people may not know that Salt Lake City has a large population of Mormons, the population is over 1 Million with around half being members of the LDS church. The Gospel is needed here and I am proud to be sharing it with Utah’s students.
I believe that God has put the Mormon people on my heart and I have such a joy for sharing what the Bible really says. My love for Mormons has lead me to learn more about what the LDS church teaches this helps me share Jesus more effectively by understanding their worldview.
