Hi I'm Atle Torjesen

Heisann! I'm a carpenter. I love being active, eating to much ice cream.watching movies and running in the mountains. I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm a 22 year old viking, from Norway and have been a member of the L.D.S church my whole life. I have served as a missionary in the California Fresno mission. I really love it, it's the best choice I have ever made.(it's hot sweaty and dirty biking in the summer, not just beaches all over as i thought it would be). I finished my education before my mission as a carpenter. And worked as a carpenter for a while before I went on my mission.Things were going very good before my mission, in many ways. I had a car, job ,and many other good things, so I decided that I wanted too stay and work. Then suddenly I felt that I should go on a mission, so I prayed for an answer, if that was the right thing too do. and it was!... I got an desire to teach others the things I know to be true. And I wanted to learn more and to be a good example for my brothers/sisters and my whole family. I love the feeling I get each time I can teach someone, and help them in any way. It really gives me joy, and happiness in my life. My family has been a great blessing to me. And they have helped me make good choices. I love to see people i know on Mormon.org. like my cousin on his mission in Norway and other good friends.

Why I am a Mormon

As I told earlier I have been a member for my whole life, and I have never regretted that. It's been tough some times, but being a Mormon has help me in so unbelievable many ways. And I can't count how many blessings that has brought to me. Through my life, the church has guided me in my choices I had to make, and in hard times it has given me comfort and the help i needed. I love that we are able to pray for answers, and that we receive guidance in this life. Because that has helped me very much in my life. I know my heavenly father loves me. and he loves you too. always remember to trust him.

How I live my faith

I have served as a missionary. I testify to people about Jesus Christ. I go to church every Sunday. I do this things because I believe this is the right thing to do as a member. and i will do my very best to find, teach, and baptize with the missionaries in Norway to build my ward back home.
