Hi I'm Eric

I am a missionary serving in the Auckland New Zealand mission, I'm 19, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and have been a member of the church ever since I was 8 when I was baptized. I love sports and played football for Higley High School, I plan to play football in College when I return home from my mission. I am currently serving a mission in Auckland New Zealand.

Why I am a Mormon

I was babtized because I believed that the church was true and I have a strong testimony of it to this day. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that we have a true prophet in Thomas S. Monson today. I know that when I follow his teachings that I am blessed in many ways. I love the church and all that it does for me.

How I live my faith

I am serving a 2 year mission for the church as I am away from my family, friends, schooling, and most of my personal possessions.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Eric
Mormons believe that families are forever and that marriage is strictly between a man and a woman. We believe that we can live with our families after this life because our Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to be happy. We also believe that the family is one of the most important things we can have in this life and that each one should be strengthened each week by spending quality time together. Without a loving family life is much more difficult and sin becomes easier to commit. A loving family brings true happiness. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Eric
Being Mormon is a privelage that I hold dear to my heart, others may think that I am different because I may not do the same things they do or believe the in the same things as they do, but I know that what I believe in blesses and helps enrich my life. I know that I would be so much less happy then I am right now if I did not have a knowlege as I do right now of who I am and what I am doing here on this earth life. I would hope that I can bring as many others to this happiness and comfort of the gospel in the near future. Show more Show less
