Hi I'm Nathan
I'm a missionary sharing the gospel and having the time of my life while doing so.
I'm a high school graduate from Syracuse, Utah who loves to be involved. In school I was heavily involved with the National Forensics League or more commonly known as your average debate team and I was part of the event called Mock Congress. It was loads of fun and very educational to learn how Congress really works. I learned to have no fear when speaking in front of people and how to organize my thoughts. Being with friends is one of my more favorite things. I love to socialize, to laugh, and to have a great time. After I finish my full-time mission in the Texas Houston South Mission I hope to attend college, but I'm CLUELESS as to what I want to study. I'm currently leaning towards working with other people's money, but we'll see. I'm passionate about how we can improve the human condition by improving ourselves first, I think that this is why I am so involved with the comings and goings on the local and national scenes. I probably sound like a geek so far and it's going to most likely get worse, but I love to read! Each time I pick up a book it's like I see a movie in my head as I read. Right now since I'm a missionary and we read the scriptures so much it's working out pretty good. I'm the second of four children. I have an older brother who is awesome and two younger sisters whom I love to death. We're no where near perfect, but I figure we get along well enough. (Don't tell them I said that!)
Why I am a Mormon
Why am I a Mormon? Because I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and wouldn't lead me astray, the Spirit testifies of truth, not falsehoods. I've received a witness by the Holy Ghost that this is the Church that Jesus Christ has personally restored to the earth today through the prophet Joseph Smith. I receive that witness again and again as I live what is taught by the Prophet of God on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by striving each day to become more like Jesus Christ in my thoughts, words, and actions. I live my faith by serving as a full-time missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for two years and am doing my best to bring the light of the gospel to those who do not have it. Will I ever obtain perfection in this life? Nope, but it is eventually possible through the path that Jesus Christ has given us to return to live with our Father in Heaven so that we can be even as He is. Before my mission I was the leader of my young men youth group from ages 16-18. I helped organize activities and do my best to be an example to my peers and those younger than me. One of the greatest blessings of being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is that there are countless of opportunities to serve. Nobody gets paid in the Church but there are hundreds of thousands if not millions of service hours performed in the Church every year. It's a privilege to be part of something where I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that this is where God wants me to be and that anybody if they are willing to open their hearts and their minds can have the same exact knowledge.
