Hi I'm Wade Andes

I live for my family and friends. I gotta have my AZ sun. I love this Gospel.

About Me

Currently I am serving a full-time mission in the newly created Oregon Salem Mission. I love the people that I am surrounded by and the chance I have to watch people's lives change. The reason I am serving is because I know the blessings that can come from the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I also love giving others the knowledge of our Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness for us, the Plan of Salvation. As my mission comes to a close, I think back on all the miracles I have seen that have come from the Lord Hastening His work. I am an advocate of missionary work. I love the change that the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings to anyone who will receive it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have had specific answers to prayers regarding the truthfulness of the doctrine. I know that we have a loving Father in Heaven who is mindful of ALL of our needs. If it wasn't for an answer to a prayer where I plead with God to tell me that this Church is true, I wouldn't be doing what I am doing. But that's not the case. God heard my prayer and answered it. And now its my responsibility to not only live the Gospel to its fullest but its my great privilege to share it with anyone and everyone who will hear it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best I can be. It starts with keeping the commandments and setting a good example for others to follow. I strive to always have the image of Jesus Christ in my actions. I also never pass up the opportunity to share the Gospel with others. I go to church every week and I read my scriptures and pray constantly to show my dedication to my Father in Heaven. I understand that none of us are perfect, we all have to strive on the daily to overcome the "natural man" but I know that we can become better and better each day through the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Wade Andes
That question can be easily answered by taking a look at the families in the Church. They apply the teachings of the Gospel in their homes. They know that love is the motive to all things. God's Plan consists of having a mom, dad and children who are working towards living with Him again one day. Show more Show less
