Hi I'm Nathanael

I'm a "desert rat". I love to be with my family and friends. and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to make things, from a potato launcher to a cedar chest. I play games (board games and video) with my friends and family. I love soccer, 4-wheeling, horse riding, and just spending time in the outdoors! I’m a history major, and a minor in 5 other subjects. I am close to having two associate degrees’ but currently put that on hold to serve a volunteer mission for the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because I believe that this is Christ’s church. And believe isn’t strong enough of a word, I Know. In the Book of Mormon, in Moroni 10:3-5, it gives a simple promise. That if I was to read, and think carefully( not skeptically), and pray, That my loving Heavenly Father cared enough about me to let me know through the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon was true. And the knowledge I received and the feelings I have felt can never be taken away from me or proved wrong. I Know that the Book of Mormon us true. That there are once again prophets called on the earth again and that God will answer any ones prayer, who is seeking the truth!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living what we preach. I try and serve my community as often as I can. I have volunteered at a library for about 1 1/2 years helping with the children’s story time. I have also helped overhaul people’s homes who would normally not be able to do so themselves. I currently serve as a Full-time Elder for the church. This means that I voluntarily have put my life on "hold" and have been called to preach the message of the gospel! And I have never regretted it!

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Nathanael
When Jesus left his apostles for the last time he gave them a charge, "Go ye therefore, and ateach all bnations, cbaptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:"(Matthew 28:19). This commandment has been given again to all members and the full time missionaries voulentarly give up 18 months to two years of their lives to do so. this is because the message of the restored gospel is so important. the book of mormon shares the reason why, "Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bear that any human soul should perish...."
