Hi I'm Spencer

I'm a mountain biking, swimming, skiing, snowmobiling Mormon.

About Me

I am a 20 yr old, red-headed, mountain bike enthusiast, and right now I am serving as a missionary In the Portland Oregon Mission, Spanish Speaking. I love life, and everything it has to offer. It is a new adventure everyday, and it is our responsibility to make the best out of it. I love the great outdoors, and being able to see the power of God, and the beauty that he has created for us, his children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, and baptized at the age of 8, but just like every other member of the church there came a time in my life when I had to know if it was really true. When I was about 16 yrs old, I did the same thing that now as a missionary I invite everyone to do. I read in the Book of Mormon, pondered its message in my heart, and then I turned to my Heavenly Father in prayer to know if it was really true. As I was praying, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of love, the love that my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ had for me. It was at that moment that I truly knew that the church was true, and that through it's teachings I could truly grow closer to my Heavenly Father and My Savior, and then one day eventually be able to return to their presence.

How I live my faith

I am currently living my faith By serving a full time mission in Portland Oregon. I has truly been an awsome experience so far, especially since I am assigned to work with the Spanish Speaking community. I truly love teaching these people in their native language, and seeing them grow closer to their Savior through the teachings of the church.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

 As Mormon missionaries we proselyte because we know we have something special, and we want to share it with the world. We believe that the message that we share, if accepted and truly applied in our lives can really bring countless blessings. If you had something that had helped you in every way imaginable in your life, why wouldn't you want to share that with others? Show more Show less
