Hi I'm Oli

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 33 years old, and a happily married father of 2 gorgeous little princess and a beautiful boy. I love sports, especially hockey. Watching a good TV show or a movie is probably what I like best to do after a day's work. I work mainly with numbers, being a CPA. I served a 2-year mission in New Zealand, when I was 19. Learning new languages and cultures is something I really enjoy. I went to music school almost all my life, so I love music in general, and play the saxophone and drums. Love to sing as well! My wife and I are expecting another girl and life in a big family is wonderful. Especially when you know these relationships can last forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, therefore, I was brought up learning to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It always made sense to me, but it's not until I was in my teen years that I really wanted to know for myself if what I was following and being taught was true. And I got the answers I was looking for. Since then, I have never looked back. I am grateful for what the Gospel brings to me personally. I know it is true. I am thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who wants what's best for His children and answers prayers.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good Christian 7 days a week, and not just on Sundays. I go to church every Sunday with my family. Living as a member of this church however means more than just "going to church". I try to help people every day, serve, smile, etc. I love missionary work. It brings me so much joy to serve and share the Gospel with friends and family.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Oli
They will share our basic beliefs: how Joseph Smith was called to be a prophet, how he translated the Book of Mormon, what people can do to find out if the message is true, how families can be forever, where we came from, why we are here, and where we go after death, etc. What's to wonderful about the message is that IT IS for everyone. And everyone is entitled to know for themselves if it's true. Show more Show less
