Hi I'm Nathan

I'm 19 years old & a graduate. I'm a Eagle scout serving a mission in Russia, and I'm a Mormon, I Know it, I Live it & I Love it!

About Me

I graduated from High school so I now am serving an honorable full-time mission and then afterwards preparing to go to college at BYU Provo. I'm an Eagle Scout who is willing to serve others if the person needs or wants help. I love to read Fantasy like genre books like " The Fablehaven Series by Brandon Mull" as well as the scriptures. I love books so much. I'm good with puzzles, except for puzzles that are over 1500 pieces. I like watching movies, playing video/computer games, and watching "Doctor Who" late at night with my family. I like animals, whether they be mythical or real-life. My favorite animal is the dragon. I'm into celtic art/ celtic music. I like Soundtrack music and Christmas music. My favorite subject is Seminary/Institute and my second favorite subject is Math. I can speak Russian a liitle bit, but I'm learning more every day and I plan to do my very best in inviting the people of Russia to come unto Christ. I'm preparing to serve a mission in St. Petersburg Russia!!!! MTC Provo is really amazing place to prepare oneself for a mission. The Russian language is not easy, but with the Lord's help I am learning it really fast and well. I hope to be able to share the gospel with boldness to the people of Russia.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon all my life. I didn't think about it much until one day when I was 7 years old. I lost my favorite stuffed animal that helped me feel safe when I went to bed. My family and I searched everywhere! We cleaned the whole house and it was no where to be found. I was so sad! That night when we knelt down for family prayers, Dad asked me to say the prayer. I asked a special blessing for Heavenly Father to help me find my stuffed animal. After I said, "amen". Dad got up and went into his bedroom and came out with something in his hands. I couldn't believe that he was holding my stuffed animal. I asked, "How"? My dad told me, "After you said, amen, I got an impression to go look in your closet and I did. So, here you go". I knew at that moment that God was real and He heard my plea. He knew how important it was for to me. He used my father to help me find it by the power of the Holy Ghost. I will never forget that! I know It's not that easy to get an answer so fast. But it was a great learning experience for me to know that my Heavenly Father is listening and knows who I am. My testimony has grown significantly since that night. I don't sleep with it anymore (obviously!!) I continue to see the Lord's hand in my life working His miracles for me everyday. He will always Love us! High School wasn't easy especially when you're trying to be what the Lord wants me to become, but Seminary helps a lot!! Now I'm serving a mission in Russia for 2 yrs. That's why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I'm a Mormon because I know that God loves us and that He wants us all to come back to Him. I know that no matter what we have done wrong, He will always love us. He wants us to keep working to overcome our weaknesses so that we can become stronger. When we try and do better and correct our wrongs the Lord shows forth his Love in an abundance. Its important to me to go to Church every Sunday and partake of the sacrament. I'm able to show the Lord and myself that I am worthy and I am able to keep my promises I made to Him when I was baptized. I took upon me the name of my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ. I want to make Him proud of me. I want to continue to live my life in a way that others will know that I am His, because I do as the Saviour did when He was on this earth. He showed us the way to live so we could return back to our Father in Heaven. For I know that without God and My Redeemer, Jesus Christ, I could never be happy! And now I will be serving a Mission to preach the gospel to the people of Russia. A little of advice, "Do what is Right" & "Keep moving Forward".

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Nathan
I Love the Bible just as much as the Book of Mormon. For I know the Bible to be The Word of God, for it is scripture written by Holy men of God. I also know the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God. For the Book of Mormon supports and strengthens the Bible just as much as the Bible supports and strengthens the Book of Mormon!! For testify that "In the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses shall every word",(& truth), "be established." Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Nathan
Mormons are Christians!! For I believe in Christ and I follow his example! Even the name of the church, which is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, tells everyone that we are Christians and we believe in Christ!!! Show more Show less
