Hi I'm Mike Russell

I am a law enforcement officer. I have long been absolutely devoted to Jesus Christ and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am most profoundly a servant of Christ with a tremendous desire to be eternally a friend of Christ. I am a grateful husband of 23 years and a father. I am 44 years old and am a devoted law enforcement officer. I have my own weaknesses, life challenges and insecurities but with the blessings of Jesus Christ I too am finding peace in the service of others.

Why I am a Mormon

I have spent years studying the scriptures and working to live the teachings of the Savior and put His teachings above my own personal interests. Though I am far from perfect, I have a deep love for our Savior Jesus Christ and want to be what He wants me to be. I am a Mormon because the Holy Spirit has touched my soul and taught me that there is a prophet on the earth today and that we are not left alone in this lonely world. I am a Mormon because the Holy Spirit has touched my soul and taught me that Jesus Christ's church is again on the earth and that it is truly led by Jesus Christ himself and He has called His church in these last days The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I currently organize the activities of the older people in our ward. This group is referred to as the High Priest group. We spend our time watching out for the needs of those around us and "bearing one anothers burdens" that they may be light. I like most members of the church serve as a home teacher which means that I am responsible for visiting regularly with other members of the church to see that their needs are being met spiritually and temporally. The great desire of my heart is to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ to generally be of service to those around me as needs arise.
