Hi I'm Andy Creager

I am a positive thinker. I love to read books and watch movies, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, my name is Andy Creager. I grew up in Uruguay, but I moved to the U.S. when I was 15 years old. I am the youngest of 3. I had the opportunity to serve a full-time mission in Northern Virginia and it was the greatest blessing in my life thus far. I live in Las Vegas and I am currently studying Computer Science at Brigham Young University - Idaho.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been going to church since I was a little child. My sisters were converted to the Gospel and I went to church with them. When I turned 8 years old, I asked my dad for permission to be baptized. He told me that I could not get baptized and that I would have to wait until I was more mature to make that decision for myself. I continued to go to church even though I did not know when the time for me to get baptized would come. When I turned 15 years old, I had the opportunity to move to the U.S. and along with this change came the opportunity to be baptized. The teachings of the Gospel have brought me to where I am today. I know that one day I will live with my family again for all eternity. I know that God is the same, yesterday, today and forever. I know that he calls a Prophet to guide us in this life, and that eventually we will live with him.

How I live my faith

While serving a mission I learned a lot about forgiveness, and more importantly about the sacrifice that Jesus Christ did for us. It's because of his Grace that I've made it this far. I know that I'm expected to be perfect but I am given many opportunities to keep trying in case I mess up. Sometimes we may feel like we are in a hole, we may feel stuck in life, without a course and helpless. but all the have to do is reach out for Jesus' hand that is there to pull us out.
