Hi I'm Preston Nygren

I Love life! I'm an outdoor enthusiast, I'm a ski bum, I'm a missionary, and I Love being a Mormon!

About Me

I love the outdoors, and I love everything about it, skiing, backpacking, camping, boating, and mountain biking. You name it I like it. I have the greatest family, they bring so much joy into my life. We are the craziest funnest crew around! I don't know what I would do without them. They are all my heros. I am curently serving a mission in the Oregon Eugen Mission, what a great place to be. I love the people, I love the Oregon lifestyle, and I love serving the Lord. I am a fan of fun, who isnt? I would say I'm a very personable person, I love meeting and becoming friends with new people. Life is meant to be lived, and thats what I am about, live and love life to the fullest.

Why I am a Mormon

Why not be? It is comforting to know that Christ has restored his church on the earth again, we do have a modern day prophet to lead myself and my family. It all makes sense, God calls prophets, so why not now for us? The gospel teaches great values that have helped me throughout my life, they have helped me be the person I am today. The blessings go on and on. The fact is that I am happy and I know this happiness comes from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I also know that his happiness will last forever, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

My life motto is "why live life mad or sad? when you can live life HAPPY!" I love being happy as most people do, and being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ has brought happiness to me each and every day. I know by following the prophet and our Heavenly Fathers commandments we will be blessed with the happiness we desire.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Preston Nygren
We baptize our new members into the church because we are giving them the opportunity to follow the wonderfull example that Jesus christ set for us. christ taught that all men must be baptized, so we baptize those who are willing to make that sacred covenante and become a member of Christs church.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Preston Nygren
Why do missionaries proselyte? we send missionaries all over the world to teach people of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have expireienced the joy's and blessings that the Restored Church has brought in our life and, we cant help but share that with others. we know its true and we want you to have that same opportunity aswell. christ taught theat we must go through out all the earth teaching his gospel. missionaries are those men and women that carry that message.
