Hi I'm Elias

I grew up in Queensland, Australia. I raise beef cattle for a livin, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 22years old, I grew up on a farm in southeast Queensland. I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my entire life. I love to laugh and have a good time and make everyone else around me have a good time too. i love being out in the wide open spaces. I aint a big fan of the city. i try avoid it as much as i can. I work hard and i play hard. I have completed Certificate 2 & 3 in agriculture and beef production. I enjoy farming, playing rugby league, riding motorbikes, riding horses and catching scrub cattle. im a ringer (stockman) and luv it. no better life i reckon. im livin the dream.

Why I am a Mormon

 I have always felt it was important to know that I was on the correct path in life. The teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have helped me to find and stay on the path. I believe it is important for us to have a close spiritual connection with God and do our best to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I love the principle of prayer, I remember not so long ago, I had lost my phone while rounding up cattle. It could have been anywhere within the hundred acres I had been riding that day. I searched everywhere but was unable to find it. The next day my Father came with me to help me search, we looked but were still unable to find it. We then decided to say a prayer and ask for our Heavenly Fathers help. So we kneeled down to say a prayer, when we finished our prayer we looked down and found the phone at our feet. I love that we can go to our Father in Heaven and ask for his help in our lives and that he is there for us, whether the problem is big or small.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary for the church for two years in California. I am helping others recieve the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, Repentance, Baptism by immersion, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end. i am helping them to find the principles and path that has blessed my life. It is one of the best ways to show my faith in and devotion to my Saviour Jesus Christ and His Gospel.

What is faith?

Elias
 Faith is believing and trusting in something you can not see but which you know to be true because of assurances you have received. Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Elias
I believe a Christian is someone who believes in Jesus Christ and his power to save and demonstrates that belief by the way they conduct their lives. My experience with other members of the Mormon faith is that for the most part they genuinely believe in Jesus Christ and do their best to follow his teachings. So Yes, Mormons are Christians.
