Hi I'm Brandon

im a missionary, a sports fan, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i am currently a full time missionary for the church. im serving in the St. Louis Missouri area. i love it here. i grew up in Rexburg Idaho where i worked on a farm, went to school and hung out with my friends. i love to go dirt/road biking, rocking to music, playing the drums and watching movies.

Why I am a Mormon

my family was mormon and i was raised this way. although i like to say that i went to church for 8 years before i decided to be baptized. when i was 8 yrs old i didnt stay in this religion or go on this mission right now because i was "raised" this way. i found out the truth for myself. i read the book of mormon and asked God myself, if it was true. i didnt get the answer then and there, but a couple days later when i was telling someone about the book of mormon, i felt the spirit touch and this sensation came over me and there was a comforting peace inside me that the book of mormon was in fact true. so now im on my mission telling more people about the blessings of the gospel.

How I live my faith

currently im actually on a mission for the church. it was all voluntary. i wasnt forced at all. as a missionary i basically spend every moment for 2 years trying to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. i dont get paid at all for this. im putting off school, jobs, music, movies, even dating for two years. its been about 20 months now and i am ebjoying every minute i get to help other people. it will be a bitter-sweet thing when i go back home.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

well, first off, i guess il let you know that Joseph Smith did not write the Book of Mormon. he just translated it into english. the Book of mormon was written by ancient prophets over in the america's starting about 600 B.C. to A.D. 421. God loves all of his children and wants them to know about His son Jesus Christ. and there wasn't anyway for prophets in jerusalem and that area to communicate with the people in the america's so God called people over in the americas to tell the people there about Jesus Christ. they wrote down their prophcies and hid them after a thousand years so that they would be protected. Joseph Smith was later led to the record and was able to translate it. Show more Show less
