Hi I'm Sam

I'm a missionary serving in Boston. I'm the youngest of 5 kids. I like pie. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in the church and was born in Utah, so I'm very rare. I went to a semester of college before serving my mission here in Massachusetts. I like to play sports (especially ice hockey), go boating, and shoot guns. I also like to read books and play video games. My favorite book series is a fantasy series called the Wheel of Time. I'm a big movie buff as well and my favorite movie is Gladiator. I like New England, including all the sports teams, but hate hearing the words, "I'm all set."

Why I am a Mormon

I live the Gospel because it works. It helps give me a glimpse of eternity and to have a connection to the Infinite. Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way to peace, happiness, and joy in this life and in the life to come. Because Heavenly Father loves us, he has restored to the Earth knowledge of Himself, His plan, and His Son, Jesus Christ. This happened through the prophet Joseph Smith. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only church with the full knowledge of who God is and what he wants us to do. I know this is true, and you can too, all you need to do is ask God.

How I live my faith

Currently I live my faith by serving as a full-time missionary for the Church. I've taken 2 years off of everything else including school, work (and dating) to serve Jesus Christ by preaching the restored Gospel to those who do not have it.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Sam
We proselyte because we have felt the peace that comes from living the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and desire to share that peace with our fellow human beings. Now why do we proselyte to those who are already Christians? Because we know that some precious truths and practices of the pure Gospel, that Christ himself taught and revealed through ancient prophets, have been lost throughout the centuries of time. But now in these times, God has again revealed His Gospel, in its FULNESS, to the Earth through a true prophet. Our invitation to those who already profess their love and knowledge of Jesus as their Savior, is to find out for yourself if what we say is true and you may find that your knowledge and love for Jesus Christ will increase, because you will draw closer to Him than you ever thought possible. That is what we offer. Show more Show less
