Hi I'm Andrew Nielsen

Currently serving a mission in the Greater Ohio Cincinnati Mission. I am 21 years old, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 21 years old. I am currently serving a Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the awesome state of Ohio! I like to build and repair computers and cars. I love helping people so when I am done with my two year mission I will go to college to be a Neonatal Nurse. I love being able to help people an why not start with the Miracle of life! I cannot wait till I get the chance to become a husband and father!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church. I did not however follow its teachings to the best of my abilities. There were times where people would say at church "I felt a strong Spirit in that lesson today" and I would get frustrated when I did not feel what they felt. Well I continued to feel this way, then a day came where I dropped out of High School and said to my parents that I did not want anything to do with them. I moved to North Carolina for a sales job that went south. I started on my way back home where I ran out of money. I said a prayer and asked for help. I really wanted God to answer, and I was willing to act on that answer if it really came. Well it did. I am a Mormon because I know God answers prayers, I know he answered Joseph Smiths prayers back in the 1800's. I am on a mission now because he answers prayers. I know he can answer other's prayers also. I know that this Church is true because it teaches the Restored Gospel Of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving my mission. I serve the people of Ohio in anyway I can. Most of all I help them by helping them receive Faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, receiving the Gift of The Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. That is the best service I can provide for the people. I have always been bugged by people who do not practice what they preach. Well I am here to tell you that I do my very best to live what God has commanded me to do. I make mistakes but that is what repentance is for, and as long as I strive to be better everyday I can continue to use the Atonement that Christ gave me!
