Hi I'm Brendon Forsgren

I am serving a mission in Brazil, Cuiabá. I am one of 5 children. I'm an athlete, love to read, love music and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of five kids and as a result have become a well rounded person because of a busy life. I enjoy learning and love physics and math. I am studying Mechanical Engineering at Brigham Young University. I love to play soccer, football, swimming and all sorts of sports with my friends. I ran the hurdles and did long jump, triple jump and pentathlon for my school's track team. I am an Eagle Scout and enjoy camping and spending a lot of my time outside. I love traveling to visit my extended family and enjoy spending time playing games with my parents and siblings. I enjoy playing the piano and hanging out with my friends. I am currently a missionary serving for the Church and will be teaching people in Brazil Cuiabá Mission about the gospel for the next two years.

Why I am a Mormon

The standards of the church has given me a way to live my life that allows me to respect the person I am. I have been a member my whole life and when I live the way I have been taught I have noticed that I am a happier person. In my teenage years I wanted to know if the doctrines of the church were true. I read the Book of Mormon and tried to learn more about our gospel. When I prayed about what I had learned I got the same feeling that I had felt so often growing up. Through this confirmation of the spirit I know that the church is true and will provide a standard in my life that will always be able to guide me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best example of our faith that I can. I live a life of high moral standards that include not swearing and being chaste. I give support to my friends and family when they need it and I try to give service often. I participate in church activities as frequently as I can. I listen to music that is clean and enjoy playing the hymns that we sing in church. I attend church every week and fulfill the responsibilities I have as a leader among peer group. I am serving a mission where I am teaching people about the Gospel and inviting them to follow the example of Christ.
