Hi I'm Eric Berntson

I'm a missionary. I love fatball I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports. Football, basketball, track, thats what I love to do. I come from a family of five kids. I am the middle child. When I am not playing sports i love to go camping, fishing , or hiking. Curently I am on a mission helping people learn more about Jesus Christ and how they can find peace and guidence through baptism into his church. After my mission is done I am going to play football at usu where I have a scholarship. I love Texas BBQ and Mexican food. Cumbia is # 1. I also enjoy a little pachanga every now and again.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of this church. When I follow the gospel and live the commandments life is good and I am happy. When I dont live the gospel life is rough and I dont have direction and I am not happy. I came to a cross roads in my life and I had to know if the church was true or not. I got on my knees and asked God if this was his true church on the earth. As I talked with my Heavenly Father a peaceful calm feeling came over me. I felt his love. I know that this is where God wants me to be. I know that He loves me. I know that this is Gods church once again established on the earth. I live the gospel because God answers prayers and I know that it is true. Jesus is my Savior. This is his true church. I have that testimony from reading the book of mormon which i also know is scripture. I know that There is a living prophet on the earth and that God guides us through him. As i do what is right i am happy. Not for just a moment but really happy. That is why i am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary!!!!! Each day I talk to people in the streets and knock on their doors. I share how Jesus is our Savoir and how his church in back on the earch.

What is the priesthood?

Eric Berntson
It is the permission from god to act in His name. With it God directs his church on the earch and we can preform ordinances like baptism and conformation of the Holy Ghost. With out this authority it would not be God's true church. Show more Show less
