Hi I'm Russell

I grew up in Louisiana and I love the South and all that is involved with living there, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a realy small town in Western Louisiana. When I was ten years old my Father passed away from a cancer that he got from serving in the military. It was one of the hardest times of mine or my family's life. We struggled through those first few years! Doing our best to stay true to the Gospel of Jesus Christ so that we could live with our Father, Both our Heavenly Father and our Earthly Father. Through out all of those years God was always there. My mother was able to get her College degree and Support our family in all of our different hobbies. I love to swim, build, hang out with my Family and Friends, and I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ! And I know that through the sacrifice that our Savior made for us we can live with our loved ones once more!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed to see if the Book of Mormon is true and have received a witness that it is the word of God. Just like the Bible is the word of God. I am a Mormon because I know with out a doubt that our Heavenly Father loves us and that he has restored his true church to the Earth, and that families can live together forever because He restored His Priesthood to the Earth. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. And he has sent his representatives ounce more.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church and trying my hardest to allways live as my Hevenly Father would want me to live. I am curently serving on a mission for our Lord and Savior.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Russell
We believe that family's can be together forever, that this is not all, and that we existed before we came to this Earth and that we will exist after this life! We believe that through Jesus Christ we can return to live with our Father in Heaven! This life is here for us to prepare for this end to be cleansed of our sin's, for all of us sin, and to grow and develop so that we may become like our Father in Heaven! Show more Show less

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Russell
We recive many blessings from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures, such as a greater relationship with God! Through reading the Holy Scriptures, which have been given to us by God, we truly get to see how He works in the lives of His Children. God is the same Today, Yesterday, and Forever, which means as we add prayer to our studys, He will manifest His love to us through The Holy Ghost. God truly does still talk to His children and His Holy Spirit will testify of the Truthfulness of the scriptures to us! Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Russell
The actibities of the Mormon missionaries are funded thruogh the missionarys themselves and others who want to see those who want to serve, but can't do to finacial problems, serve! Missionarys are not paid! They do what they do in service to God and becouse they want to let others know what God has blessed us to know. The mony that is paid by missionarys, family, and friends are used to bring others the Truth, not to bring greatness and stature to the missionary! Show more Show less
