Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a Wyomingite, I'm a Jersey missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i like computers, music, movies and comic books. I love serving the Lord and have never been happier. I LOVE studying the scriptures and learning more about God. I grew up in Star Valley Wyoming and graduated highschool there. after that i went to some college at Utah State University in Logan Utah. It is a couple of hours away from home and i have lotsa family in Cash Valley. I love it there and was studying Computer Science. I've been out on my mission for a bit over a year and have been loving it. I've met some awesome people here in Jersey. I have been a member of the church my whole life. When I was 8 I was baptized in a creek behind my grandpa's house. I can still remember how awesome that experiance was for me. My favorite scriptures are in the Peral of Great Price. I love Enoch's experiance it really is a testimony to me that God loves His children here on earth even though there are so many wicked.

Why I am a Mormon

Because the Book of Mormon is true ergo the church is good. I am a Mormon because I know it to be the Church of Christ. I was raised in the Church but i prayed and now know for myself that it's for reals. The more I learn the stronger my Faith becomes. I have had so many amazing experiances as a missionary and have seen so many people's lives change for the better I know there is nothing better I could be spending my time doing. Serving God is my life.

How I live my faith

By sharing it with others and striving to be like Christ. When i was younger i did scouting and got my Eagle award. Right now i am serving a full-time mission in the beautiful garden state aka new jersey!! I try to do the best i can to live what i teach. On my mission I have discovered I have a deep love for the scriptures and learning. I spend all the time I can feasting on the word and learning about the Kingdom of God. There is so much to learn and that is what you take with you into the next life.

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

Andrew
It seems obvious from all of the confusion in the world today even just in the Christian community that there was something missing. During the Apostasy there was no one on the earth who could say “Verily thus sayeth the Lord” and speak to the people as a mouth piece of the Lord. With the death of the apostles that authority was lost. So because God loves us so much he called Joseph Smith as the Prophet to restore that authority and the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth. Now, once again there are prophets, seers and revelators on the earth who can speak for God and lead His children. Show more Show less
