Hi I'm Russell

tennis is my game, cheesesteaks my name and I'm Mormon

About Me

Right now I am a missionary in the City of Philadelphia speaking spanish, And I love what I do. Originally I come from the sandy shores of San Diego, CA but I was raised in Tooele, Utah. There are 5 total in my family me, my two sisters, and my parents. Well I love tennis and any chance I get to play it. I think the phillies are the best ,that the smell of cinnamon is the best smell in the world, and that the beach is the best place in the world!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the Book of Mormon inside that book is a power that is beyond description it fuels my desire to be who I am and to help others be the person they are supposed to be. Being a missionary I seen a great change in my life as well as the life of many other people as they had read the Book of Mormon. It has drawn me closer to my family and those I hold close to me. Because of that little book I know who I am, where I am going, and where I came from and I have learned to love with all my heart. I know this book is true just ask the missionaries I promise we don't bite.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing and living what I believe. I believe faith means love and service. The apostle James taught that faith without works is dead. That applies to everyone you cannot just say "i believe" and then do absolutely nothing that does not help anybody. Right now I am living what I believe By being a missionary here in the inner city. Also used to be a teacher of little children 4yrs. that was an adventure before I was a missionary. I honestly believe we must act rather than be acted upon if we want to be happy we need to choose for ourselves what we want.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Russell
It is a law of sexual purity. Jesus Christ taught us that we should be clean in thought and deed. This law means that we abstain from sexual relations before marriage and complete fidelity to your lawfully wedded spouse after marriage, as well as not participating in homosexual relationships, and avoiding pornography like the plague it is. Also keeping our thoughts clean is very important as our thoughts lead to actions. I know that this is a commandment of god because it brings help you see the true beauty of all gods children.
