Hi I'm Andrew

I play basketball. I longboard. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I go to college in Utah right now with my beautiful wife. We just got married in August. I am studying Therapeutic Recreation and hoping to work with troubled youth and/or disabled people. I love music of all kinds, listening to it and writing lyrics for my own songs. I love church and learning more about the life of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have gained a testimony that Jesus is my Savior and that this is His church.

How I live my faith

I attend church weekly with my wife to grow and learn with others from my community. I visit the temple as often as possible, where we are given the opportunity to learn more about our purpose on this earth.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Andrew
Missionaries young and old pay for almost all their mission expenses. It was fun in high school to look for jobs and talk to friends about saving up to pay for our missions. Often times, parents or grandparents will pay for part of the mission, if the young men and women successfully earn the other part themselves. Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to earn all the money themselves and on a case by case basis the church can help with finances, or find someone who can. Certain areas of the world are much more expensive to live in then others, but to make it fair, the Church has averaged out mission costs, so that everyone pays the same amount. It truly is a remarkable system. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Andrew
A testimony is easily defined as anything that follows the words, "I know". You don't have to say those words to make it a testimony, but it is something that we come to know by the promptings of the Holy Ghost, or the spirit. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and His gospel. I know that he lived. I know this is His church. And I know that above all He wants us to be happy. Show more Show less
