Hi I'm Erik

I'm in Indonesia, I'm a missionary, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently in Indonesia serving a mission, the greatest thing I've ever done- although I'm not done yet. I'm the third of 7 kids. 6 boys, 1 girl. Other than involvement in the church, ice and street hockey, ping pong, soccer, futsal, camping, joking, hiking, canoeing, and music make up the main activities in the family....plus hacky sack. I feel extremely blessed to be a member of a large family with parents who have raised us in the Gospel. Growing up with so many siblings has brought and continues to bring genuine joy and happiness into my life. One of the greatest blessings God has given us is the chance we'll have to live together forever with our families in the life to come.

Why I am a Mormon

I haven't always known that this church was true, it took searching, action, and prayer to know, just as it will for anyone else. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know he has restored his gospel through a prophet. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and that God intends families to live together forever. I've found out for myself that 'mormonism' is the way to accomplish that. The knowledge and enlightenment we can attain concerning life, death, and our relationship with God through learning and living this gopel is a tremendous blessing that can't be found anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I've been blessed with the opportunity to serve a mission for 2 years in Indonesia by sharing the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm trying to help others search for and obtain the same belief and hope that I've been given because of Jesus Christ, and because of the restoration of his Gospel. Our relationship with God becomes so much stronger and clearer when we study and apply the teachings of the Church. The feelings of love, unity, and peace I feel in my life and in my family are available to all of God's children through the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
