Hi I'm Andrew Crawford

And I like to party. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Andrew, I'm serving in the New York South mission, THE BEST mission in the world, hands down. It really has changed my life forever, all the things I have seen and learned. Before the mission, I played football at BYU for a year and had a great time and I plan on doing that when i get home in a few months. I love just having a great time and enjoying myself, always having a positive attitude and joking around, there is no other way to be happy! Im not a mom or a dad yet.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, and for a long time it was just there, I really took the church for granted, but as I went away to college for a year, I really saw the impact that the gospel of Jesus Christ has on peoples lives, and I really began to be a "member/investigator" haha and had a desire to find out for myself if everything I had been taught was true. As I read and pondered and prayed about the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith, two things that I had always had a really hard time understanding and believing, I began to feel the spirit working inside of me and could see the difference in my life- I was happier, nicer, more patient, harder working, all the things that help us to become like Jesus Christ. It is amazing.

How I live my faith

As a full-time missionary, not only do I get to live my faith every day, but I get to share it all day, every day. It truly is the best feeling, something I will never forget. Seeing people learn about and apply the Atonement in their lives has really been just incredible to see. I have never been happier in my life, it has totally rocked my world!
