Hi I'm Dustin

Im a missionary, play the drums, fly helicopters and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Im and currently serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I grew up in Utah, and did flight tranning before I was a Missionary. I love to play golf in my free time and I also enjoy playing the drums and playing music chilling with my friends, If I have time form all that other stuff that I just told you about.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that this is the only true church of Jesus Christ on the earth today with out question! everyone else is just confused:) so thats why im a mormon, and as well form reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. which if any one REALLY studies that book they will know that this is the only true church on the earth.

How I live my faith

Well I Start by preaching the restored gospel of Jesus Christ every day to any one that will hear it as a missionary. By also living the restored truths that this wonderful gospel has. My faith enables me to be a better person and by keeping the commandments of the gospel, the lord has blessed every aspect of my life of course there is going to be hard times in life but thats why were here on the earth, and Im thankful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ that helps me through it.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Dustin
The Restoration was necessary because of the previous Apostasy and loss of the priesthood and the keys of that priesthood which was present before the Restoration had accured. After the death of Christ the keys and authority rested upon the Apostles at the time. From much persecution the Apostles, like Christ, where killed resulting in the loss of the keys and the Priesthood authority to govern the Church as well as the doctrins of the Gospel, and the ordinances thereof. Because of this the church that Christ had established during his mortal ministry fell. The result of the great Apostasy left men to figure things out for themselves.Without revelation and proper authority it led them to establish beliefs of themselves rather than of God. Hundreds of years later whole belief systems were established upon uninspired councils and creeds to follow what they thought to be Christ’s church and doctrine. The result of this brought many Christian churches, which many of them still exist today. We have not always had the bible to rely on to give us the answers in how to build a church. Neither did Christ or the apostles when the church was organized by Christ himself during he’s mortal ministry. It was solely by guidance from the Father, from whom all truth comes from which is how The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is established. Only by revelation and guidance from our Father and our lord and savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
