Hi I'm Rusty.

I live in Mesa, Az. I swim for Mountain View hich school's swim team. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of 6 in my family. I love being outside and doing stuff and everyday want to go on an adventure. I recently graduated high school and am currently on a mission in Guatemala.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ. The influence it has had on me in unmeasurable. My family is together and happy, we attend church every sunday, we follow the prophet and most importantly we all know that this church is true. The Church of Jesus Christ has been established on the earth through Joseph Smith, he was given the authority of God and today we have a prophet that receives revelation from God for all of us. I know this is true because I read the Book of Mormon, and I prayed to know the truth. I will never forget the answer I reveived. It wasn't a huge billboard or a neon lightup sign. In fact, it was only a feeling. A feeling that I know to be true. This is why I am a mormon and why I am serving a mission. I promise that if you read the Book of Mormon, want to know and pray to God, you will have your answer. In James 2:17 we learn that faith without works is dead. Show your faith by praying to know the truth.

How I live my faith

I thank God for each day. It is such a priviledge we have to be here on earth trying to make good choices. I am not perfect and each day I recognize the influence of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Everything bad that I do is able to be forgiven because of our savior. I love participating in hometeaching because we have the opportunity to share a message about the church along with making new friends. There are so many people that I have gotten to know really well through hometeaching.
