Hi I'm Brandon
I'm a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I'm serving in the Montana Billings mission. I enjoy playing basketball and very much enjoy films and movies.
Why I am a Mormon
I have been born into a family who are all members of this church. For a long time I have been attending church and living off my parents testimony. It was when I was reading the Book of Mormon and pondering about the prophet Joseph Smith when I started to have faith and learn to know that this was a true book and how Joseph Smith was a true prophet because of the teachings and testimonies of the ancient prophets in the Book of Mormon. Such an uneducated man couldn't have written this testament of Jesus Christ without being a prophet of God and receiving Divine Help from our Heavenly Father. He truly did restore the fulness of the Gospel through the restoring of priesthood keys and translation of the Book of Mormon.
Please explain the part prayer plays in your life?
Prayer is that communcation we can have with our Heavenly Father and it brings us closer to him and shows are faith in him as we pray. He will see that faith and if we pray with a sincere heart he will bless us with the answers that we seek as he guides us through the Holy Ghost. I have been able to follow the promptings of the Holy Ghost and feel of the love that Heavenly Father has for each of us.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ and his teachings and influence upon the people of the Americas. Through studying this testament, I have been able to learn of the fulness of the gospel and gain a testimony that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he translated this book and how that we can receive guidance through our modern-day prophets and personal prayer. The stories of the Book of Mormon show the teachings of Jesus Christ and how through our faith and actions we can be brought closer to God. I have prayed and have studied and I do believe that through this gospel, prayer, and our prophet we can become closer to God, which is what he wants for all of us.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by helping others understand and learn about Jesus Christ's restored gospel. I do this by serving a 2-year mission for him. Before my mission I was a primary teacher and helped younger children gain faith and love for Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father by teaching them stories from the Bible and Book of Mormon.
